With a record 10 sires on their 2022 stallion roster, Kyabram’s Llowalong Farms standardbred stud has a busy season on the horizon and preparations are underway for the launch of the breeding season with a stallion parade on Sunday 4 September.
Guests to the property at 78 Gray Road will meet new North American import Century Farroh along with his compatriots Pastor Stephen, Mel Mara, American Ideal and Lather Up, as well as local champions Yankee Rockstar, Poster Boy, Soho Tribeca and new addition, New Zealander, Raging Bull.
Some of their up-and-coming progeny will also be on display, with a showcase of Llowalong’s premier lots for the 2023 Nutrien Yearling Sales.
Renown race caller Dan Mielicki will emcee the parade while pedigree expert John Coffey will provide extra comment. Hospitality will be provided along with giveaways and a chance to learn about the $400,000 Llowalong Stallion Bonus, new for 2022.
“We are thrilled with the growth of Llowalong Farms since we separated stud operations from the long-standing veterinary clinic last year, and having 10 sires on our books just one season in is something we are very proud of,” said studmaster Dr Kath McIntosh.
“The whole team love our stallions, everyone has their favourite, and we all enjoy being able to show them off to the public. We just know seeing the likes of Poster Boy and American Ideal in the flesh will be a huge Father’s Day treat, and we’ve already got guests booked in from as far afield as Queensland, Western Australia and New Zealand.”
Bookings are essential before the Friday 26 August RSVP to email@example.com or 03 5852 2845. A preview of all stallions can be found on the nrequine.com.au website. Updates on the event can be followed on the Llowalong Farms Facebook Page event.
