OH, WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A LONHRO
There’s a very good reason why Lonhro has over a dozen sons standing at stud. They work! O’Lonhro is working too and little wonder. A cracking individual who is renowned for throwing them to type, O’Lonhro was unbeaten in his two starts as a 3YO before capping his career at four with a victory in the time honoured Group Two Chelmsford Stakes (emulating his sire and beating home Group One Doncaster Handicap winner, Triple Honour), along with a second in the Group Two Warwick Stakes.
It’s a pretty good family as well … mum, Mamzelle Pedrille, was a Group Two winner in Sydney and is up close and personal with both Group One winner Diamond Drille and, wait for it, I Am Invincible (32 stakes winners). In this industry, it’s not always about what you know, but who your stallion is related to!
Most importantly, O’Lonhro has gotten off to a good start at stud with his first few crops producing Mamzelle Tess, the winner of six and Group placed in May, stakes placed O’Lonera – also a 6-time winner with over half a million in the bank – O’Lonh Star (6 wins), Big Reel (6 wins), O’ So Hazy (5 wins). All up … nearly 70 winners of circa $4 million. That’s pedigree and performance AND excellent value with his fee just $5,500 inc. GST.
