Annual stallion parade set for August 18th & 19th

July 24, 2017

Spendthrift Australia will host multiple stallion parades this year on Friday, August 18th and Saturday, August 19th. The parades will introduce newcomer Swear and include his Group 1-winning barnmates Hampton Court, Jimmy Creed, and Warrior’s Reward.

The stallions will parade on Friday 18th at 3pm with afternoon tea served afterward, and on Saturday 19th at noon with lunch served afterward. There will be activities for the entire family at Saturday’s parade so everyone can enjoy their afternoon at the farm.

“Once again, we are very excited to open our gates and extend an invitation to anyone who can attend our stallion parade.” said Garry Cuddy, general manager at Spendthrift Australia. “We are excited for breeders to see Swear, the first stallion prospect to retire to stud after having successfully carried the Spendthrift Australia colours on the racetrack. We feel Swear represents another terrific opportunity in our ‘Share The Upside’ program, and we believe breeders will like what they see at the stallion parade.”

Swear, a $725,000 Inglis Easter yearling purchase by Spendthrift Australia, retires to stud as a Group 3 winner and Group 1-placed 3-year-old by Redoute’s Choice. He becomes the newest stallion to participate in Spendthrift’s renowned “Share The Upside” program for a fee of $8,250 Inc. GST. He will also be offered at $5,500 Inc. GST Payable On Live Foal.

Spendthrift Australia asks for an RSVP for those who plan to attend either day of the stallion parade, and that can easily be done via email to, or calling the office 03 5421 5600.
