TRIPLE G1 WINNER NZ 3YO OF THE YEAR
TRIPLE GROUP ONE WINNER
WELCOME We approach the 2010 breeding season with an extremely positive attitude. Karaka 2010 was a cracker! This is testament to the resilience of the industry that we have successfully operated in for the past 35 years. The global financial crisis surprisingly had very little effect on the well promoted New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sales. There was strong support from both local and international buyers, all attending with the intention of securing sound, strong, well bred New Zealand yearlings. These horses are proven not only to succeed in the sprint distance but also carry the conviction to train on. The 2008/09 racing season was exceptional for Waikato Stud with six individual G1 winners of nine G1 races. All known Australasian records were broken and we were duly crowned ‘Breeder of the Year’ – our fourth such award in the last five years.
Race results are our benchmark – the results again are outstanding.
This season, we have produced 11 individual stakes winners of 14 stakes races, two at the highest level – the Kevin Gray trained Daffodil and David Fuller’s Metal Bender. We salute a broodmare band that has been crafted over many years to produce extremely competitive racehorses in elite company. Race results are our benchmark – the results again are outstanding. Never has the competition been keener for the stock of Pins, especially from Australia. His top price of $650,000 was a great outcome for breeders Tim Bodle and Brent Taylor. His average of $154,194 for 49 lots sold, represents a sound investment and confirms his status as a sire of importance, not only for us, but our shareholders and supporting breeders. Pins has a genuine star this season, the Hallmark Stud and Trevor Hurley bred Katie Lee, who epitomises the qualities we seek in a racehorse and for which Pins has become synonymous. Maurie MacLeod, who bred and raced Pins, was the successful breeder of Singapore star Waikato.
O’Reilly, the Centaine Award winner as the leading New Zealand sire by global earnings, continued to consolidate his reputation in the sales ring, with an average of $137,507 for 73 lots sold with a top price of $600,000. On the track, the Gary and Linda Hodel bred Fellowship made it big in Hong Kong while Shamrocker, proudly bred by Vern and Margaret Trillo, shone in Melbourne. Cox Plate winner Savabeel has had four stakes winners to date, lead by the Lib Petagna and Max Brown bred Kudakulari (trained by Bart Cummings) and Melbourne dual Group winning filly My Emotion bred by Stuart Ramsey. His 35 individual winners confirms he is a sire of the future. We invite you to compare these results with other 2006 crops and you will appreciate and understand our excitement and confidence. No Excuse Needed’s four stakes winners this season include once again our favourite, triple G1 winner Daffodil, and Danny O’Brien’s Flemington Group winner Take The Rap. Fast‘N’Famous’ first crop of yearlings sold up to $200,000 and were purchased by leading trainers both in New Zealand and Australia. We eagerly await the careers of his progeny. After Scardee Cat’s progeny setting a record pace at Karaka 09, they again attracted good prices, selling in excess of $100,000. We are very proud to introduce the latest inclusion to our stallion roster, Rios, the outstanding G2 winner and son of Champion sire Hussonet. Rios boasts an elite New Zealand female line that has produced champion racehorses Roman Emperor and Black Mamba. Nothing happens by chance and in the 2010 season our focus on breeding the best racehorses resumes. We will continue to work closely with our clients, offering with confidence, access to our outstanding stallion roster. As always, we welcome you. Mark Chittick

INTERESTING TIMES AROUND THE WORLD BUT IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL FOR WAIKATO STUD IN 2009-10. ANOTHER 11 STAKES WINNERS ROLL OFF THE BREEDING INDUSTRY’S MOST AWARDED THOROUGHBRED NURSERY.
ONE SHARP LADY
Keeping it in the family
PINS 3YO filly KATIE LEE makes history as the first horse to win the Group One classic double – the 1000 Guineas and 2000 Guineas. The Hallmark Stud and Trevor Hurley bred equine millionairess added a brace of Group Twos and a Listed and was unplaced only once in a stellar season. For the second year running, after Daffodil in 2009, a Waikato Stud sired filly is NZ Bloodstock Filly Of The Year.
NAMED IN HONOUR OF WAIKATO STUD’S LATE-GREAT, THE CENTAINE AWARD FOR THE NZ-BASED SIRE WITH THE MOST PRIZEMONEY WORLDWIDE GOES IN ITS INAUGURAL YEAR TO WAIKATO STUD’S CHAMPION O’REILLY.

Yearlings sired by Waikato Stud stallions sold for more than $26 million at yearling sales in 2010. On its own behalf or as agent, Waikato Stud sold 33 individual six-figure yearlings and was third leading vendor on aggregate at Karaka.
For the fourth time in five years, the Chittick family’s Waikato Stud receives the MERCEDES NZ BREEDER OF THE YEAR AWARD for 2009, closing out the first decade of the new millennium as Group One Breeder of the Decade. Just like a champion’s winning habit, how’s that for consistency!
ANOTHER MILESTONE FOR WAIKATO STUD? IN 2007-08 ALAMOSA WAS CROWNED NZ 3YO OF THE YEAR. THE FOLLOWINGSEASONDAFFODIL ACCEPTED THE HONOR. THIS SEASON COULD IT BE KATIE LEE AND A HAT TRICK FOR WAIKATO STUD SIRES?

ZABEEL – SAVANNAH SUCCESS BY SUCCESS EXPRESS BROWN 2001 16hh
Savabeel is on his way stakes winners on major Australian tracks
By the great Zabeel, out of New Zealand Oaks winner Savannah Success, Savabeel appeals as a sire of classic performers. With his first crop only three-year-olds, Savabeel already has four individual stakes winners to his credit from 35 individual winners. He has sired My Emotion in his first crop, winner on debut of the Group Three VRC Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes at Flemington at two and training on to win the Group Two Fillies’ Classic, 1600m, at Moonee Valley at three. Another potential topliner stood up at the 2010 Sydney autumn carnival when the Bart Cummings-trained juvenile colt Kudakulari (out of an O’Reilly mare) triumphed in the Listed AJC Fernhill Handicap, 1600m. He looks a strong Spring classic contender.
On the racetrack, three weeks after defeating his peers in the Group One AJC Spring Champion Stakes, Savabeel won the career-defining WFA championship, the Group One WS Cox Plate, joining Octagonal, Red Anchor and Surround as the only three-year-olds to do so in 30 years. At stud, Savabeel has covered an average of 125 mares each season. This year, six-figure Savabeel yearlings were purchased by leading Melbourne trainer Peter Moody, successful Sydney owner Jason Abrahams, Tony Pike, Graeme and Debbie Rogerson, with a top price of $170,000.
Savabeel lost a genuine stakes performer when the career of leading spring three-year-old Warrentherooster was tragically cut short.
