Winx Brother To Stud


Snitzel son Boulder City goes to stud | Bronwen Healy

Boulder City (Aus) (Snitzel {Aus}), the A$2.3-million top lot at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in 2016 and a half-brother to Winx (Aus) (Street Cry {Ire}), retires unraced to Russell and Caroline Osborne's Riverbank Farm in Victoria. He will stand for A$5,500.

“The decision to retire Boulder City to stud before commencing his racing career was a very difficult one,” Russell Osborne told Breednet. “He has had a number of minor issues that were becoming harder to manage and after the devastating loss of his full brother ['TDN Rising Star' and Group 3 winner El Divino] the owners decided to meet the market demand and offer him at stud. Everyone involved would have dearly loved to have seen him get to the race track and have the opportunity to emulate his big sister, however, we believe offering his superior bloodlines to the breeding industry is a great thing for breeders.”

After producing Boulder City, dam Vegas Showgirl (NZ) (Al Akbar) was barren a year before producing back-to-back fillies retained by breeder John Camilleri: a daughter of Snitzel named Courchevel who will soon turn two and a filly foal by Exceed and Excel (Aus).
