OverviewService Fee: $19800 (inc. GST)

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 in season 2020 the value fee of $19,800 (inc GST).

SHAMUS AWARD has enjoyed a stellar twelve months highlighted by the likes of Group One winner MR QUICKIE, Group Two winners SOUL PATCH & ETANA, Group Three winner TRUE DETECTIVE in addition to producing the effortless two-year-old winner of the $150k Gold Rush SWAT’S THAT. Last but not least, he sired the quinella in the 2yo Anzac Day Stakes at Flemington in April via FLYING AWARD & IRONEDGE, a race that has produced the likes of Merchant Navy, Super Seth & Long John in recent years.

Rosemont Principal Anthony Mithen believes Shamus Award is on the cusp of becoming an elite stallion for not just Victoria but Australia wide.

If you look at the last 12 months in isolation, there hasn’t been a Victorian based stallion return a better percentage to runners at the combined Group / Group One level and that includes the recently departed Written Tycoon. Multiple Group winners to 2yo Stakes Quinella’s his recent results have been white hot. With over 120 mares in foal we think the future for Shamus Award is enormous and he’s indicative of Rosemont stallions being priced on racetrack results as opposed to ‘hype’.

Mithen is particularly encouraged by the stats that prove the best son of Snitzel at stud is producing horses with that precocious speed. “80% of his winners are from 1000m to 1400m. So while his headline acts have shown the strength to stretch at a mile and further, it appears his inherit genetic make-up is speed. Given the number of Stakes Winners he’s had over the last twelve he’s incredible value.”
