INTRODUCTION

Welcome Here at Waikato Stud, success is the driving force behind everything we do. It’s something we strive for every day and something we celebrate.

When you’re involved in an operation like ours, it’s impossible not to be wholeheartedly invested – it’s our passion, our soul, our 24/7. Because of this, creating our annual brochure is one of the highlights of the year for myself and the Waikato Stud team. It offers us an opportunity to reflect over the past year and applaud the milestones reached, the successes achieved, and the races won. It also lays an exciting foundation for the year ahead. I’m proud to say that, thanks to a lot of hard work, enthusiasm and determination from our dedicated team, Waikato Stud has enjoyed another incredible 12 months. We were honoured to be awarded Breeder of the Year for the sixth time at the New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing Awards, the only breeder in New Zealand history to reach such an achievement. Our champion sire Savabeel won the Grosvenor Award, Dewar Stallion Trophy and the Centaine Award for topping the earnings by a NZ stallion here and overseas. Karaka was huge highlight for us – our 2019 yearling draft was the largest privately-owned consignment of yearlings to ever be sold at any one sale in the world. It took an immense effort from our team to make this happen and we were stoked with the result. We smashed some records and

sold our highest-priced yearling ever – a Savabeel colt from Make a Wish to Te Akau Racing’s David Ellis for $1.4 million. I’m humbled by the fact that our industry partners continue to back the Waikato Stud team and our traditional farming principles. We offered our entire yearling draft for sale at Karaka this year and the support from buyers and breeders was – as always – instrumental to our success. Karaka 2019 was our best-ever sale and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the many individuals involved. I’m also very proud of the people who are unwaveringly committed to taking our operation to the next level. Thank you to those who wear the Waikato Stud uniform with pride and put their hearts and energy into this business. Pippa and I love nothing more than seeing our supporters create their own legacies of success with a Waikato Stud horse. Waikato Stud continues to average 12 stakes winners per season and over the 2018/19 season we’ve been closely following the achievements of Waikato Stud-bred stakes winners Savvy Coup, Madison County, Surely Sacred, Probabeel, Love Affair, Residential, Ocean Emperor, Preditor, Exuberant, Pinzu, Flamingo and The Bandito. We are absolutely thrilled for their connections.

INTRODUCTION

For me, success is knowing we are doing things right. From the moment the breeding process begins to when a horse wins on the track, there are a million steps that go into the process and we have spent the last 50 years perfecting those steps. Continued success excites us all. I look forward to toasting the next champions of the racetrack and I invite you to celebrate with us. The Waikato Stud team wishes you a fun and prosperous racing and breeding season.

CELEBRATE THE STUD / CELEBRATE

A toast to standout moments in 2018/19

SAVABEEL

Super sire Savabeel Savabeel continues to display complete dominance within the Australasian breeding and racing scene. During the 2018/19 season, Savabeel sired an incredible 18 individual stakes winners, including three Group One winners. The five-time leading New Zealand sire was recently awarded his fifth-Grosvenor Award (Champion NZ Sire), fourth consecutive Dewar Award (combined Australian and NZ progeny earnings) and fourth Centaine Award (combined progeny earnings worldwide). Savabeel’s supremacy also extended to the sale ring. He was the leading sire at Karaka for the fifth year in a row and a new record price was reached when Waikato Stud sold the Savabeel colt from Make a Wish for $1.4 million to David Ellis.

O’REILLY

O’Reilly’s sons were Brutal and showed some Grunt The great O’Reilly made his presence felt this season – siring not one but two Group One winners. Grunt won the Gr.1 Makybe Diva Stakes early on at Flemington and Brutal was out to prove that he is one of the best three-year-old’s in Australasia when he demolished his rivals in the Gr.1 Doncaster Mile. Congratulations to those in the ownership of both horses, including our good friends Rupert Legh, Michael Ramsden and Jo Pulitano.

ARDROSSAN

Ardrossan joined the WS stallion line-up Waikato Stud added group winning sprinter Ardrossan to its star-studded stallion line-up in 2019. This season, Ardrossan won the Gr.3 Concorde Handicap at Ellerslie in January before placing at Group One level in NZ and Group level in Sydney. Stud duties beckoned the son of Redoute’s Choice after he sustained a career ending injury in Sydney.

TOP BREEDERS

Stellar strike rate for Wentwood Grange Over the past year, Wentwood Grange’s Hawkins family have paid serious dividends on mating decisions they made in back in 2014. That year, they bred four mares to WS stallions and at the close of the 2018/19 season – two of them are stakes winners! Savabeel filly Elate won the Listed Oaks Prelude and Ocean Park gelding Kolding, which they bred in partnership with Warren Pegg was ultra-impressive in Australia – winning the Gr.2 QLD Guineas and four races in succession.

K AR AK A

New heights reached at Karaka The 2019 Karaka Yearling Sale was full of highlights for the WS team and goes down in history as Waikato Stud’s biggest and best yearling sale to date. Selling exclusively at Karaka this year, Waikato Stud offered 90 yearlings in the Book One session, making it the largest privatelyowned consignment of yearlings to be sold in the world. New records were reached when Waikato Stud sold the Savabeel colt from Make a Wish for $1.4 million to David Ellis. Not only was this colt the highest priced yearling sold at the 2019 Karaka Yearling Sale, he set a new record for the highest price paid for a yearling by Savabeel and was also the most expensive yearling ever sold by Waikato Stud. Waikato Stud were the leading vendor for the sixth year running and finished up with an aggregate of $16,115,000 and an average of $226,971 – resulting in the farm being the leading vendor on both aggregate and average sale price.

SAVABEEL

AWARDS

The Chosen One

Breeder of the Year

Exciting three-year-old Savabeel colt The Chosen One gave his owners a huge thrill this season; winning the Gr.3 Frank Packer Plate in Sydney, Gr.3 Manawatu Classic and Listed Zacinto Stakes and picked up fourth place in the Gr.1 Australian Derby. Well done to his connections including Tony and Vicki Rider, Janine Dunlop and Rayner and Lynn Bonnington.

Waikato Stud received the Breeder of the Year Award for the sixth time. The award recognised Waikato Stud as New Zealand’s most successful breeder during the 2017/18 season following their achievement of breeding three-year-old Group One winners Savvy Coup, Embellish and Hasahalo, plus 20 other stakes horses. Waikato Stud are the only NZ breeder in history to have received the award on so many occasions.

THE STUD / CELEBRATE

Tivaci’s first foals arrived Tivaci’s first foals arrived in 2018 and are an excellent endorsement for their good-looking and highlycredentialed sire. Tivaci was crowned Leading First Season Sire at the 2019 NZB Karaka May Sale and his daughter out of Sitting on a Hill, who was bred and sold by the Bambry family, topped the sale overall when commanding a price of $95,000.

PINS

The little horse with a big heart WS-bred Pins gelding Madison County is living proof that champions come in all shapes and sizes. Despite being a modest $36,000 purchase for the China Horse Club from Waikato Stud’s 2017 Karaka draft, Madison County has won at the elite level in NZ and has successfully competed in the top echelon of racing in Australia. His achievements during the 2018/19 season include winning the Gr.1 NZ 2000 Guineas, Gr.1 Levin Classic, Gr.2 Hawke’s Bay Guineas and he placed second in both the Gr.1 Australian Derby and Gr.2 Tulloch Stakes.

SAVABEEL

Probabeel won the Karaka Million! In what can only be described as a top training effort by Te Akau Racing’s leading young trainer Jamie Richards, Probabeel won three in a row over the summer, culminating with a showstopping victory in the 2019 edition of the $1 million Karaka Million 2YO race. Bred and sold by Waikato Stud, Probabeel is by champion sire Savabeel from the Pins mare Far Fetched. She was purchased by David Ellis for $380,000 at Karaka in 2018 on behalf Brendan and Jo Lindsay.

Nicoletta

Ardrossan R ACING TEAM

Stakes success for WS racing team Waikato Stud’s racing team has enjoyed another stellar season. Notable winners include Ardrossan, Flamingo, Love Affair and Residential. Ardrossan has joined the WS stallion line-up and Flamingo, Love Affair and Residential will make the transition from being top racehorses to becoming vital members of the WS broodmare band this spring. David and Emma Haworth trained Pins mare Flamingo added the Listed Wairarapa Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes to her resume whilst in foal to Savabeel. Savabeel mare Love Affair won the Gr.3 Eagle Technology Stakes at Ellerslie under the guidance of leading NZ trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman and another to gain further black type was John and Karen Parsons trained Pins mare Residential. Already a multiple stakes winner, Residential won the Gr.3 South Island Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes in March.

SAVABEEL

Group 1 greatness for Savabeel mares Savabeel’s daughters were out in full force this season. Lib Petagna’s striking Savabeel mare Nicoletta was successful in taking out the Gr.1 NZ Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes where she held on tenaciously to stave off fast finishing Savabeel mare Supera. Christopher and Susanna Grace’s homebred Savabeel mare Shillelagh won the Gr.1 Empire Rose Stakes during the spring carnival at Flemington. The superstar mare emulated her victory from exactly 12 months earlier when she triumphed in the Gr.1 Kennedy Mile. WS-bred Savvy Coup proved too good in the Gr.1 Livamol Classic for her fantastic connections which include the Bruford and Coupland families and trainers Michael and Matthew Pitman. The dual Group One winner was subsequently sold for $1 million to Coolmore Stud at the 2019 Magic Millions Broodmare Sale and a date with American Triple Crown winner Justify is on the cards for the upcoming breeding season.

The Go Racing Syndications team have enjoyed a terrific year on the track and struck early in the season when WS-bred and sold Savabeel colt Exuberant took out the first stakes race for two-year-olds; the Wellesley Stakes at Trentham.

Karaka 2019 was an iconic year for WS Bloodstock Manager Kerrie Cox. Not only was it Kerrie’s sixteenth consecutive Karaka Yearling Sale with Waikato Stud, she also sold her Savabeel colt out of Cupid for $500,000 to de Burgh Equine / Shadwell Stud.

Waikato Stud’s past and present sires Savabeel, O’Reilly, Pins and Ocean Park claimed the top four spots on the Dewar Award (sire whose progeny have accumulated the highest combined stakes earnings in Australia & New Zealand for the 2018/19 season).

Headed by distinguished champion Group One sire Savabeel, Waikato

Stud also stands proven young sires Ocean Park and Rock ‘n’ Pop, as well as exciting young sires Sacred Falls, Tivaci and Ardrossan. Each stallion has his own accolades and they have individually performed at the highest level of racing. Benefitting from the fertile pastures and terroir from the Matamata farm, the daily care and attention given to the stallions is second-to-none.

RESIDENT STALLIONS / SAVABEEL

Savabeel The very best racehorses with the very best pedigrees on occasions make the very best stallions. That recipe belongs to Savabeel, our magnificent son of all-conquering Zabeel, who has now won the Grosvenor Award (Champion NZ Sire) for five consecutive seasons. He has also won his fourth Dewar Award and fourth Centaine Award and is nearing 100 stakes winners including 18 Group One winners. SERVICE FEE

RESIDENT STALLIONS / SAVABEEL

SAVABEEL

Overview

In the modern era, no New Zealand based stallion comes close to achieving the results of Savabeel. The Grosvenor Award is based on progeny earnings, the Dewar Award is based on combined Australian and New Zealand progeny earnings, and the Centaine Award is for combined progeny earnings worldwide. To have captured those three stallion awards concurrently on 13 occasions out of the last 13 opportunities is testimony to the dominance of Savabeel – it says it all. At Waikato Stud, we acknowledge the significant role played by Savabeel in elevating Waikato Stud to top ranking as the leading vendor at Karaka for six straight years. Savabeel’s exemplary record of achievement extends to a consistent 70 percent winners to runners ratio and 10.8 percent stakes winners to runners ratio – both stats achieved in the 2018/19 season. Not unlike his own sire Zabeel, Savabeel’s level of success has remained consistent if not elevated with maturity – 18 stakes winners in the 2018/19 season. Yearling buyers acknowledged that level of success at all yearling sales

14

in 2019 (Australasia) when they purchased 54 yearlings at an average of $305,000 – eight of his progeny sold for $500,000 or more including the Waikato Stud offered colt out of Make a Wish which made $1.4 million. At the Karaka yearling sales alone, Savabeel has been the leading sire on average and aggregate for five consecutive years, commencing 2015. His daughters are now also in big demand have sold for up to $1.7 million – NZ Oaks winners Savvy Coup in late May was sold to Coolmore Stud for A$1 million at the Gold Coast Broodmare Sale. Savabeel’s 18 Group One winners are Nicoletta, Shillelagh, Savvy Coup, Sword Of Osman, Hasahalo, Embellish, Kawi, Lucia Valentina, Diademe, Costume, Brambles, Hall of Fame, Pasadena Girl, Sangster, Savaria, Scarlett Lady, Soriano, and Sound Proposition. Like Ocean Park, Savabeel on the track won the most prestigious weight-forage race in Australasia – the W.S. Cox Plate. Class has prevailed.

STUD RECORD

Sire of 841 runners, 590 winners, earnings of over $93 million, the sire of 89 stakes winners and 18 individual Group One winners including; BRAMBLES, COSTUME, DIADEME, EMBELLISH, HASAHALO, HALL OF FAME, KAWI, LUCIA VALENTINA, NICOLETTA, PASADENA GIRL, SANGSTER, SAVARIA, SAVVY COUP, SCARLETT LADY, SHILLELAGH, SORIANO, SOUND PROPOSITION and SWORD OF OSMAN. 70% winners from runners and 10.8% stakes winners from runners.

INTRODUCTION / FROM MARK RESIDENT STALLIONS / SACRED FALLS

Sacred Falls Sacred Falls was brilliant as a spring three-year-old, winning the New Zealand 2000 Guineas at Riccarton, the first of his four Group One victories that culminated in back to back Gr.1 Doncaster Handicaps in a career that earned $4.7 million. He retired to stud as the highest ever NZ-bred stakes winner, and the excitement he generated on the track is now refocused upon an emerging crop of highly talented offspring. SERVICE FEE

RESIDENT STALLIONS / SACRED FALLS

SACRED FALLS

Overview

Not considered a natural two-year-old by trainer Tony Pike, Sacred Falls was nevertheless unbeaten in his only two starts at that age late in the season. His own first crop juveniles are winning numerous trials, and his talented daughter Shoshone was also produced for an impressive debut win at Ellerslie late in the season. Pike and other trainers during 2019 have strongly voiced enthusiasm for the potential of his progeny and their potential at the age of three. Sacred Falls himself couldn’t have returned more strongly at three years. In four successive spring starts, he impressively won the Listed Westbury Stud Challenge Stakes (1200m), Gr.2 Hawkes Bay Guineas (1400m), Gr.3 Sarten Memorial Stakes (1400m) and the Gr.1 NZ 2000 Guineas (1600m). Transferred to Chris Waller in Sydney, Sacred Falls won back to back Gr.1 Doncaster Handicaps - he was the first horse in 50 years to do so and the only horse to defeat Pierro in Sydney. In the spring of his fiveyear-old season, he displayed his

class and durability by the weight-for-age Gr.1 Main Stakes.

winning George

As a homebred returning to Waikato Stud, by another homebred champion sire in O’Reilly, he is from the Redoute’s Choice mare Iguazu’s Girl from the quality group winning family of Splashing Out, Shopaholic, Splurge, Omnicorp, Crimson, Pharostan, and Vonusti. In two seasons of yearlings sales, his progeny have been in huge demand. In 2019 they sold for up to $380,000 and averaged more than $107,000 in Book One at Karaka. Many of the very best judges have bought them including David Ellis, Guy Mulcaster, Bruce Perry, John Foote, Paul Moroney, Tony Pike, Go Racing, Phill Cataldo, Ciaron Maher, David Archer, Ger Beemsterboer, Roger James, Murray Baker, Graeme Rogerson, John O’Shea, Andrew Forsman, Raffles Racing, Liam Birchley, Danny O’Brien, Stephen Marsh, Bjorn Baker, Chris Waller, Robt Dawe, Richard Freedman and Nigel Blackiston.

RESIDENT STALLIONS / TIVACI

Tivaci Brilliant Group One winner Tivaci is one of the most exciting stallions to be welcomed to the New Zealand thoroughbred breeding industry in recent years. By champion sire High Chaparral, Tivaci was a top quality sprinter/miler and won four stakes races, including the prestigious Gr.1 Aged Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick.

TIVACI

Overview

Tivaci’s first crop of weanlings have caught the attention of numerous good judges, and he was leading first-season sire at the 2019 Karaka May Sale. The top-priced weanling was a Tivaci filly secured for $95,000 and buyers were unanimous in their assessment of Tivaci’s progeny as having size, strength and quality. In his final campaign in Melbourne and Sydney, Tivaci raced against only the very best sprinters. His final four starts produced two wins, including his best win in the Gr.1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick, finishing his stellar career with six wins between 1000 and 1600 metres. Three of his six successes came in group races in addition to the Listed Kensington Stakes in which he ran his final 600 metres in 32.6s. Aside from his incredible track record, Tivaci is known for his outstanding pedigree and exceptional good looks. He has let down into a magnificent stallion, standing over 16.1 hands and is showing more muscle and strength than his own sire High Chaparral who is now emerging as a highly successful sire of sires.

26

Tivaci’s sire High Chaparral was a world-class racehorse. He won two Breeders Cups, the English and Irish Derbys, the Irish Champion Stakes and was placed in the Prix de I’Arc de Triomphe. Although the late High Chaparral had an abbreviated stud career, he has sired over 100 stakes winners including 23 at Group One level. The dam of Tivaci is the winning Fastnet Rock mare Breccia. His grandam Luna Tudor, by Military Plume, by Sir Tristram, won 10 races including the Gr.2 Perth Cup. Tivaci has been incredibly well supported by breeders, covering two excellent books of mares including Group One winners Daffodil, I Do and Costume as well as the dams of Group One winners Grunt, Nicoletta, Thee Auld Floozie, Shamexpress, Ambitious Dragon, Brambles, Kawi, Stolen Dance, A Touch of Ruby and Signify. With an impeccable pedigree and incredible racing credentials, Tivaci is poised to take his sire’s place in the stallion ranks.

STUD RECORD

Tivaci’s oldest progeny will be yearlings in the 2019/20 racing season.

RESIDENT STALLIONS / OCEAN PARK

OCEAN PARK

Overview

Kolding’s magnificent win in the Gr.2 Queensland Guineas at Eagle farm provided Ocean Park with his 13th stakes performer. That dominant victory follows a succession of Gr.1 performers in Arrogant (2nd Gr.1 Rosehill Guineas, Gr.2 Waikato Guineas, 4th Gr.1 NZ Derby), Another Dollar (2nd Gr.1 Queensland Oaks), Mongolianconqueror (2nd Gr.1 NZ Derby), Rondinella (3rd Gr.1 Tancred Stakes, Gr.1 New Zealand Stakes, 4th Gr.1 Sydney Cup, 2nd LR Kaimai Stakes). Ocean Park’s run of Group One placings has in part been compensated by quality black type performers in Ocean Jewel (1st WATC LR Placid Ark Stakes), Seaway, Tofane, Pretty to Sea, Ocean’s Fourteen, Dancer’s Kin, Our Hail Mary and Miss Valencia which all contributed to his meritorious strike-rate of over 56 percent winners to runners in five countries, and 62 percent in Australia. Ninety-four individual winners in less than three full seasons (as of June 2019) of racing, is a statistic that outperforms even the great Zabeel. But unlike Zabeel whose Group One

32

success came over 1600m in the Australian Guineas, Ocean Park like his Waikato Stud stallion-stablemate Savabeel was at his very best at the middle distance of 2040 metres, both winning Australasia’s greatest weight race, the W.S. Cox Plate. Ocean Park in achieving that feat amongst his five Group One successes was voted both Champion Middle Distance Horse of New Zealand, and Champion Middle Distance Horse of Australia, in the 2012-13 season – in that same season he was NZ Horse of the Year. That treble of accolades is unique to Ocean Park. In addition to his phenomenal strikerate and his achievement of leading (NZ based) second season sire in Australia in the 2017/18 season, Ocean Park’s success is all before him. His strengths are formidable – by Champion Sire Thorn Park; out of NZ Broodmare of the year Sayyida, by Zabeel; producing striking yearlings that made up to $220,000 and averaged $90,000 at Karaka in 2019. Ocean Park is in the infancy of an outstanding stud career.

RESIDENT STALLIONS / ARDROSSAN

ARDROSSAN

Overview

Ardrossan expressed his high level of ability only fleetingly during an abbreviated nine-start career, but good judges rated him a potential Group One performer of the very highest order. Unbeaten in two New Zealand starts at two years, and winning by 3.5 lengths at his second start in a Listed 1100 metre event; he was sent to Melbourne where he defeated Group One winner Shoals in a trial before suffering heart strain. Fully recovered six months hence, he easily won first-up at home before the ARC Gr.3 Concorde in which he defeated the Gr.1 2000 Guineas placed Ever Loyal. Next start he was only a head and nose behind six-time Group One winner Melody Belle and dual Group One winner Bostonian in the Gr.1 BCD Group Sprint (1400m) at Te Rapa. Ardrossan raced only once more. It was on an unsuitable heavy track at Rosehill in which he finished a close third in the Gr.3 Star Kingdom Stakes - he sustained an injury which brought early retirement. The strength of the Danehill blood through Redoute’s Choice remains

38

supremely dominant with 10 of his sons at stud led by current Champion Sire Snitzel having sired 13 Group One winners. Others include Not a Single Doubt and Stratum II. As well as being an acclaimed sire of sires, Redoute’s Choice internationally has 54 Group One wins and 329 group and listed events to his credit. In Australia, he has sired 34 individual Group One winners and 160 stakes winners. His second crop son Snitzel will this season emulate his own sire when he takes out his third consecutive Champion Sire of Australia title. Breeders looking for early speed will also be encouraged by Ardrossan’s dam Miss Argyle, by Iglesia, who was second in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) at Randwick – the first fillies stakes race of the two-year-old season. Ardrossan was purchased as a yearling in Melbourne by outstanding judge Bruce Perry who describes him as, ‘a beautifully balanced and athletic individual; a very good mover with good bone and exuding quality and presence’.

Ardrossan will commence stud duties in 2019.

RESIDENT STALLIONS / ROCK ‘N’ POP

ROCK ‘N’ POP

Overview

Rock ‘n’ Pop’s second crop son Surely Sacred displayed his class in winning the 2019 runnings of both the Gr.2 Auckland Guineas (1600m) and Gr.2 Avondale Guineas (2100m). With only three crops of racing age, the likes of The Lord Mayor and Surely Sacred and other group and listed performed runners such as Go Dixie, Gold Spice, and Rock ‘n’ Affair, suggests the future is bright. The potential for Rock ‘n’ Pop to sire high-quality middle-distance and staying types emerged last season in the form of The Mayor (The Lord Mayor in Australia) who finished a desperately unlucky 4th in the Gr.1 NZ Derby. Twice a winner in Sydney at Rosehill and Randwick over 2000m, The Lord Mayor this past autumn consecutively won the Toowoomba Cup (2000m) and Gold Coast Cup (2400m). Rock ‘n’ Pop’s superior conformation as a yearling saw him realise $1 million at the 2010 Karaka Yearling Sale.

44

In addition to the Gr.1 NZ 2000 Guineas, he also won the Listed Karaka Mile and was an unlucky second to Silent Achiever in the 2012 Gr.1 NZ Derby after three checks during running. To evaluate Rock ‘n’ Pop’s future potential is to recognise that he already sires Classic and middledistance to staying-type Cup horses from his first two crops. His stamina index is high through both his own Derby performance and his dam Popsy who not only won the Gr.1 NZ Derby but finished a half-head second in the Gr.1 Auckland Cup. Rock ‘n’ Pop stamps his yearlings on type and imparts his quality bone. His yearlings have fetched up to $220,000 off a four-figure service fee and his two-year-olds up to $110,000 at the Karaka Ready to Run Sale. From limited numeric broodmare opportunities, Rock ‘n’ Pop is a sire of the future who represents outstanding value.

WHAT WE LIVE FOR


THE QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE

What we live for There’s no simple recipe to achieving the unprecedented accomplishments that Waikato Stud has notched up over 50 years, according to Stud principal Mark Chittick. Ask Mark Chittick what success means to him and the answer is complex, yet unequivocal. “Success is having the satisfaction that comes from knowing we are doing things right – from the moment the breeding process begins through to when a horse leaves our property and then goes on to win at the racetrack,” he explains. “There’s a million things that have gone into the process and each step has contributed to that success.” It’s a method that has been perfected over 50 years, resulting in the Stud earning the distinction of six-time Breeder of the Year – the highest number ever awarded to a New Zealand thoroughbred breeder – and setting records at the 2019 Karaka Yearling Sale. The most recent Breeder of the Year accolades follow the achievements of Savabeel-sired Embellish, Hasahalo and Savvy Coup, with the trio winning three of the four major Group One classic races during the 2017-18 racing season. Savvy Coup won the Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks, while Embellish and Hasahalo completed the ‘Guineas double’ in 2017 – Embellish won the Gr.1 New Zealand Two Thousand Guineas and Hasahalo won the Gr.1 New Zealand One Thousand Guineas. Waikato Stud has averaged 12 stakes winners a year and since its inception

the Stud has bred 39 individual Group One winners of 76 Group One races. Over the years, eight of Waikato Stud’s 21 Group One-producing stallions have been awarded Champion Sire status – Decies, Pompeii Court, Dahar, Centaine, O’Reilly, Pins, No Excuse Needed and Savabeel. The driving force for Mark and the entire Waikato Stud team is to breed the best racehorses they possibly can. “That is in the forefront of our minds every day, whatever we do,” Mark says. “We’re not trying to ‘breed’ the most money at a yearling sale, we place our emphasis on breeding the best racehorse. If we’re getting that mix right and it’s proven overtime, then success in the sale ring will come eventually.” Breeding champion racehorses begins with terroir. The lush 688 hectare property in Matamata is the Stud’s biggest attribute for rearing horses and good custodianship of the farmland is essential, Mark says. “I believe that the best, most consistent horse breeders have a sound farming knowledge. They know their land and their stock well and they know what needs to be done to give the product they produce the best opportunity.” The farm is never under pressure, and every area of the farm gets a spell at different times of the year. Waikato

Stud’s cattle operation also plays a vital role in giving back to the land, along with practices like under-sowing crops and planting different crops. “Farms that consistently leave good horses will continue to do so. We love being able to put stock into a paddock, shut the gate behind them and think ‘that horse is going to get every opportunity and be happy’. If they can be satisfied, then we will be,” Mark adds. Perfecting bloodlines over the years is also an essential component, ensuring each Waikato Stud horse is given the best opportunity with its genetic ability. “That starts with mating, then caring for the mare in foal, and then the growing, rearing and education of that young animal. We insist on positive involvement towards our young horses – there’s never to be any negativity towards the foal – right through to feeding or picking up its foot. Then the owners and trainers are able to get the best out of their horses thanks to a solid foundation,” he says. Being awarded the highest accolade at the New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing Awards is a privilege and an honour, Mark adds. “When you have an operation like ours and the investment that we put in, it’s our passion, our heart, our soul, our 24-7. We live for it, so to get that recognition is amazing.

WHAT WE LIVE FOR

“It’s a nod to our team, our community, and it’s a nod to [stud patriarch and Mark’s father] Garry and the 40-50 years he’s developed the processes.” For the past six Karaka Yearling Sales, Waikato Stud has topped the aggregate and earned the title of leading vendor, from 2014 to 2019. At the 2019 sale, Waikato Stud sold its highest-priced yearling ever – a Savabeel colt from Make a Wish that went for $1.4 million to the bid of Te Akau Racing principal David Ellis. Six lots by leading NZ sire Savabeel sold for $500,000 or more, with an average price of $295,833. Progeny by the Stud’s other stallions were also hugely sought after – including a Sacred Falls colt from Savodara, selling for $380,000, a Pins colt from Home Made fetched $340,000 and Ocean Park’s top

50

lot was a colt from Eudora, selling for $220,000. The 2019 sale was the first year in many that Waikato Stud exclusively sold all of its 90 yearlings at Karaka – normally about 20 to 30 are sold at sales in Australia each year. “We believe that Waikato Stud’s 2019 Karaka Yearling draft is the largest privately owned consignment of yearlings to ever be sold at any one sale in the world, and the top-priced yearlings by Waikato Stud stallions were all purchased from our draft,” Mark says. “It was an outstanding Book One sale result for us and we were absolutely delighted.” The support of buyers and breeders is also instrumental to the Stud’s success, and Mark is always humbled by people that back the Waikato Stud team and farm ethos.

“As much as we’re proud when we have an outstanding achievement, it’s also very satisfying when someone who’s been part of our business has that achievement too. “It’s not all about making money, it’s about celebrating every achievement and not enjoying it alone. Success is sweeter when shared.” Above: Garry and Mark Chittick at the 2018 Horse of the Year Awards
