Shamardal son recruited for New Zealand stud

NEW ZEALAND stud Bluegables Farm has secured a son of Shamardal for stud duties this year. Shamoline Warrior, a half-brother to Group 1 Derby winner Rebel Raider, will stand at the Waikato stud  for a fee of NZ$6,500  (£3,255/€3,679).

Winner of the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes, a traditional Derby trial, Shamoline Warrior's hopes of winning Australia's VRC Derby win were knocked by a chest infection and he then suffered long lay offs with ligament and pelvis problems.

"Shamoline Warrior is an imposing individual with the outstanding temperament the Shamardals are renowned for. His racetrack ability, physical strength and outstanding bloodlines attracted meto him instantly,” said Monty Henderson of Bluegables Farm.

"Through injury I feel New Zealand has gained access to a first class son of Shamardal and I would like to thank (owners) Delbridge Racing for the opportunity to purchase him.”

Meanwhile, Group 2 winner and Group 1 placed six-year-old Famous Roman, a son of the former Tally-Ho stallionDanetime,  will stand at the Cromarty Park Stud in Western Australia.
