Menari Retired to Newgate Farm

Thursday, 23rd August 2018

Newgate Farm has announced that prodigiously talented colt Menari (Snitzel- Isurava, by General Nediym) will join its stallion roster for the 2018 breeding season. The injury plagued Menari was a leading contender for The Everest later in the spring but his career was prematurely cut short due to a damaged tendon. A homebred for Corumbene Stud’s George Altomonte, breeder of Golden Slipper winner and top stallion Sebring, Menari was prepared by Snitzel’s trainer Gerald Ryan. He retires with 3 wins from 8 starts and over $600,000 in prize money. His biggest win came in last year's Gr2 Run To The Rose before he was placed behind stable-mate Trapeze Artist in the Gr1 Golden Rose. "We are committed to standing the very best and fastest sons of champion sires and Menari, an incredibly brilliant son of Snitzel, certainly fits this mould. He is the horse that we have consistently rated as the most talented colt of his year and the most desirable stallion prospect of his generation," Newgate Farm General Manager, Bruce Slade said. Newgate is in the process of finalising Menari’s syndication, with a small number of shares available to outside breeders. Menari will stand at a fee of $27,500 inc GST.
