Final invitations from HOST

The recent loss of South Australian stallion HOST allowed us time to sit and recall his talents in the breeding barn.

After 10 seasons of his progeny hitting the racetrack ( 2012 – 2021) we found that season 2018 was his peak of individual winners of 41 whilst he had over 30 individual winners in all seasons from 2014 to 2019.

A credit to the team at Willow Grove Stud where he served much of time and life in the front paddock until recently.

According to his beast  Season Stakeswinners and Stakes placed were in 2019:
1st – Caulfield Sprint Gr2
2nd – Gilgai Stakes Gr2
3rd – Oakleigh Plate Gr1
3rd – Yulonginvest.Com.Au Bel Esprit LR
2019 Season Stakes Placed
3rd – David R Coles Am Spring Stakes Gr3

EDUARDO , his leading progeny for stakes,  is set to resume on Saturday at Caulfield before looking to Group 1 opportunities in the Spring . Click the link below from Racing and Sports.

The story of How Womantic ! Summerset ParkStud

It takes a lot of strength to be a thoroughbred breeder. The success of How Womantic for SA Breeders Rob and Maureen McBryde shares a lifetime of passion and the strength to succeed.

How Womantic was the 5th service to mare Banderilla, herself a winner of 4 from 16 starts for smart South Australian trainer Jon O’Connor.

All up, as at 2019, the dam has been served by 10 stallions, with How Womantic the one to race … the team from recently spoke of the horses talent.

The Maher and Eustace trained How Womantic under Jye McNeil stepped up to black type company well on Saturday winning the $160,000, Group 2 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) for three-year-old fillies at Caulfield extending her record to a perfect four wins from four starts.
