4 year old (2015) Bay Stallion by FASTNET ROCK out of FRUSTRATING
LONG LEAF TO STAND AT RANGEVIEW STUD IN 2020
Rangeview Stud is excited to announce that LONG LEAF, a son of super sire FASTNET ROCK, will commence stud duties in 2020.
LONG LEAF was a very precocious 2 year old winning his first three starts, including impressive wins in the Merson Cooper Stakes and Blue Diamond Preview.
LONG LEAF was huge in the Golden Slipper, which he ran 6th from barrier 15 and 4th in the ATC Sires. (In both races he was the second colt past the post in a filly dominated season.)
By establishing himself as one of the best 2 year olds in the country, trainer David Hayes kept the bar high for LONG LEAF setting him for the elite 3 year old races. He placed in Group – the Vain Stakes, Caulfield Guineas Prelude and Sandown Guineas.
LONG LEAF showed his versatility and good temperament going to NZ and winning the Karaka Million over 1600m.
During his 3 year old campaign LONG LEAF ran very good races in both the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes and Australian Guineas finishing 6th in both behind Sunlight and Mystic Journey respectively.
LONG LEAF has retired sound with 4 wins from 1000m to 1600m and collected $947 000 in stakes earnings.
$947 000 in stakes earnings.
His Sire FASTNET ROCK needs little introduction as a dual Champion Sire of Australia. He has Sired 37 individual Group 1 winners and boasts the outstanding strike rate of 71% winners to runners. FASTNET ROCK has also established himself as a Sire of Sires producing successful sons Hinchinbrook, Smart Missile and Foxwedge.
LONG LEAF’s dam Frustrating is a daughter of very successful Stallion and broodmare stallion Stravinsky and from the elite “blue hen” Parfore.
Frustrating is a half sister to 4 individual million dollar earners including;
Group 1 winners Tiger Tees (ATC Galaxy), Terravista (Darley Classic and Lightning Stakes);
Group 2 winner Ball Of Muscle and Singapore Champion Super Easy who is now a successful Stallion in NZ.
Long Leaf has been purchased by a group of prominent WA breeders and will stand at our picturesque Rangeview Stud Burekup in the magnificent South West of WA.
His introductory fee is $5,000 plus GST.
