Congrats Deserves Congrats

Tuesday, 11th June 2013

Vinery shuttler Congrats continues to earn plaudits as a stallion. Standing the 2013 season at Vinery's Hunter Valley base for what now seems a bargain fee of $22,000, the US-bred son of long-standing high profile American sire A.P.Indy has returned the astonishing figures of 88 percent winners-to-runners from his debut crop. Among them are 9 individual stakes-winners at a massive 10 percent SW/R from his first crop which included a quartet of Gr1 performers headlined by Gr1 winning duo Turbulent Descent & Wickedly Perfect. Congrats has also sired the Gr1 winner Emma's Encore from his second crop. His first Australian crop are current weanlings that will be freshman yearlings at next year's Australian and New Zealand sales.
