Spendthrift Australia adds new stallions Overshare and Gold Standard for 2018

April 29, 2018

Spendthrift Australia announced two new stallions for 2018, as well as service fees for its entire roster. Bolstering the roster this year will be Overshare, a Group 3-winning son of champion sire I am Invincible. A winner at two, Overshare won the G3 Zeditave Stakes and the Listed McKenzie Stakes, both at 1200m, at three.

“We cannot wait to get him to the farm for breeders to see because we feel that he ticks all the boxes,” said Garry Cuddy, general manager of Spendthrift Australia. “He’s by a champion sire, he’s a multiple stakes-winning sprinter, and he definitely looks the part.”

From the family of five champions and a $320,000 Inglis Easter yearling, Overshare is being offered on Spendthrift Australia’s Share the Upside program at a fee of $15,400 Inc. GST for a one-time only payment on live foal. He will also stand for $11,000 Inc. GST on live foal terms.

Also retiring to the farm this year is Sebring’s Group 2-winning son Gold Standard. Bred in Victoria by Mr. Robert Crabtree and acquired by the Waterhouse/Bott Stable from the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale, Gold Standard placed second to Addictive Nature on debut in his only start at two, and returned at three to turn the tables and take out the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes at Rosehill in dominating fashion, defeating Group 1 winners Trapeze Artist, Ace High and The Mission before finishing fourth in one of the deepest renewals of the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes in recent memory.

“Sebring is a sire that we have a lot of time for and we are very excited to offer breeders his well-performed son,” said Cuddy.

Gold Standard will be offered on the Share the Upside program for $7,700 Inc. GST for a one-time only payment on live foal. He will also stand for $5,500 Inc. GST for breeders wishing to breed on live foal terms.

Along with the two new stallions, Spendthrift Australia is also returning its four stallions from 2017 in Hampton Court, Jimmy Creed (USA), Swear, and Warrior’s Reward (USA). All four returning stallions will be offered on the farm’s Breed Secure program and on live foal terms.
