First Warhorse Mares Test Positive
Victorian-based Bombora Downs principal Christoph Bruechert has been delighted with the response to his new stallion Warhorse, a former cracking 2YO by General Nediym from a half-sister to speed machine California Dane. "It's hardly surprising, a multiple Group-winning Champion 2YO from a great family is bound to generate good interest." To top it off with a great start for Warhorse, his first two mares to be tested both provided positive pregnancy tests. "I was pretty confident but it's always a relief to see those first few positive tests" Bruechert said. "The horse is working like a champ as well!" Bombora Downs has very high expectations for the son of General Nediym and it seems many broodmare owners share this belief. Warhorse has attracted mares from as far away as Queensland, no real surprise given the popularity of his sire in the Sunshine State. The multiple Gr1-performed galloper is standing his debut season for $7,700.
