OverviewService Fee: $11000 (inc. GST)

New to Rosemont in 2019, SHAMUS AWARD is one of the most exciting prospects to hit Victoria in a long time.

The first Cox Plate winner to stand in Victoria since the mighty Rubiton and the only G1-winning son of Snitzel to ever stand in Victoria, he will stand for the value fee of $11,000 (inc GST).

Having started his career in the Hunter Valley, Shamus Award covered more than 125 mares in each of his first 4 seasons, giving him strong numbers to continue to do the job on the track with his progeny … which includes Group One Derby winner Mr Quickie.

His oldest have just turned 4 and have really started to find their feet with Stakes winner Classic Weiwei looking a genuine weight for age horse of the future, and Etana taking the G2 Doomben Roses during the Queensland carnival. No doubt his headline horse though is Rosemont-bred Mr Quickie who has won nearly $1m in prizemoney and is destined to be a star of the spring following his win in the Queenland Derby (Group One) and unlucky 3rd in the South Australian Derby. In fact, so impressive have wer his 3yos in season 2018/19 he had more 3yo wins than Written Tycoon, Redoute’s Choice, Medaglia D’Oro, Exceed and Excel, Dundeel, Not A Single Doubt, Fiorente and Lonhro. Other black-type performers in his first crop include Causeway Girl, Malahide, Golden Victory and Mookareena while second-crop 2yo Ethical Solution ran 4th on debut to show the versatility of this emerging son of Snitzel as a bone fide top notch stallion
