RACING royalty made its way up the freeway to Calga earlier this week with champion race bitch Fanta Bale shuttled up to Sires On Ice to be served by underrated sire Dyna Villa.
Retiring as Australasia’s highest ever stake earner with an incredible $1,365,715 in the bank, amassed from her 42 race wins for trainer Rob Britton, Fanta Bale (David Bale x Ucme Typhoon) won a spate of Group 1 events over all distances throughout her decorated career, with her future induction into the GCA Hall Of Fame a mere formality.
And with Fanta Bale now ready to begin her career as a brood, Team Wheeler had no hesitation in sending their champion chaser to their stud dog Dyna Villa, the two-time group 1 winning galloper doing terrific things from his limited opportunities at stud, standing at just $1,100.
“The Wheelers were very keen to send Fanta Bale to Dyna Villa – by all reports they’ve got some really nice Dyna Villa pups on the way through and his results from the pups we have seen race so far have been very encouraging,” said studmaster Tony Wiseman.
“It’s a big thumb’s up for the dog that they’ve elected to send a bitch of Fanta Bale’s quality to him first up.”
From limited runners, Dyna Villa’s progeny have so far won 380 races with prizemoney just a tick under $1 million.
More importantly, his winning strike-rate for 2019 currently sits at 19%, second only to Kc And All in the top 20 sires (by prizemoney earnings) for the calendar year.
“Hopefully breeders really take notice of how his pups are progressing – he really is earning his place among the higher end stud dogs with his results so far,” added Wiseman.
“Dyna Hunter won the Group 2 Warragul Cup last month so it’s good to see him throwing group race winners as well, something very important to breeders obviously.”
