The arrival of our latest champion GALAH has caused quite excitement here at Rangeview Stud, and we are proud to bring this stallion that ticks all the boxes, to Western Australia. This is the colt that was precocious enough to win 2nd time out at 2 years, who won three straight in Melbourne and Sydney in 26 days, twice at stakes level in the Gothic Stakes and Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes, finishing his three-year-old campaign with a very close 3rd in the Group 2 Sandown Guineas. GALAH’s finest victory came from a seemingly impossible position to storm home and take out the Group 2 QTC Cup by a nose.
The excitement of great WA sprinter SO SECRET whose first foals only arrived in 2010 has now been phenomenally boosted by the Karrakatta Plate win of his second crop son HOBART JONES (out of Tribulot). This is the most prestigious race for two year olds in Western Australia. Even more rewarding is that HOBART JONES was bred by and is part owned by Rangeview Stud. The $500,000 Karrakatta Plate has always been known as the race that makes a stallion and SO SECRET now boasts a Karrakatta Plate winner.
Sprinter Henny Hughes USA (Hennessey/Meadow Flyer) regarded as “The Fastest Horse in the World” in 2006 was purchased by Rangeview to stand in WA. Henny Hughes at two won the prestigious Group 2 Saratoga Stakes (1200m), and had three Group 1 seconds, including the pre-eminent Breeders Cup Juvenile (1700m). His formidable reputation was enhanced at three years setting a new Stakes record 1:08.13 winning the Vosburgh S (Group1) 1200m, followed by another Group 1 victory in the King’s Bishop S 1400m, then earning himself the title of the Worlds Champion Sprinter of 2006.
Henny Hughes is by renowned speed source Hennessy, a proven Northern Dancer outcross, and arrived as the most accomplished sprinter to ever stand in WA.
Henny Hughes finished the USA 2012 season as the Leading Sire of 2 year old Stakes Winners with 6 stakeswinners and 10 other stakes placegetters.
It’s no wonder that he was recently purchased by a prestigious stud in Japan and has now left WA. There will be two amazing crops from Henny Hughes to grace WA sales and racetracks.
Our other stallion Key Business has now been retired, but his siring prowess is featured through our Honour Roll.
