SKILLED (AUS)(Commands-Dextrous, by Quest For Fame)
Riverbank Farm, VIC. Fee: $3,300

Skilled Overview

Skilled was a boom 2YO – winner of the Gr1 Champagne Stakes, the Listed TL Baillieu, and second in the Gr1 AJC Sires’ Produce – who carried his form through as a 3YO where he raced solely in stakes company. Skilled ran second in the Gr1 Randwick Guineas to Ilovethiscity, and picked up several other stakes placing during that season also.

A beautifully conformed type, Skilled is one of eleven Gr1 winners for his sire Commands, whose total stud record numbers 79 stakes winners. Commands took a while to make his mark at stud, living in the shadow of his Gr1 winning brother Danewin, but once he hit his straps, his stock proved to be tough, fast types who thrilled racegoers.

The first crop of Skilled is nearing the end of their 5YO season, and to date he has produced 57 winners of 112 races including dual Gr3 winner Pecans, Gr3 winner Fiscal Fantasy plus several city winners in the current season. These include So Skilled, Miss Jane, Little Elsa, and the 2YO winner Cayman Dayze. Another who shows promise is Altered, who ran fourth in the Listed Macau Lisboa Challenge Final against the older horses.

Skilled is out of group winner Dextrous, who has been brilliant as a broodmare, leaving group winners Skilled, Sidestep, and Ambidexter. This is the family founded by Champion mare Emancipation (dam of group winner and Derby second Royal Pardon, and granddam of Gr1 winners Railings, and Virage de Fortune).

Breeders who want precocity at a reasonable price should seriously consider Skilled whose progeny have been winning from 1000-2400m.

  • Super Six Weeks For Riverbank Farm

    Thu, 18 Jul 2019

    North-east Victoria’s Riverbank Farm is having its best run ever, with a flood of winners in the past 6 weeks from their resident stallions, led by Skilled, Anacheeva and Redente, reports tbv.com.au. With more than 14 winners recorded at national racetracks such as Flemington, Cranbourne, Bairnsdale, Scone and Fannie Bay, the winners roll includes Hurry Home Harry, Crimson Ace, Come On Carl, Engadine, Eagle Point and the homebred Beautiful Bee. In April this year, Fiscal Fantasy became Group winner number two for Skilled, when she won impressively in the Gr3 Manwatu Breeders Stakes at Awapuni, New Zealand. Just over a two hour drive from Melbourne, the family-run Riverbank Farm is situated opposite Benalla racecourse and was established around 30 years ago by Adrian and Dorothy Osborne. In September 2014, they handed the reins to their son, horse trainer Russell. Together with his wife Caroline, an equine vet and current TBV Board Member, they have established their own broodmare band and have a number of their own home-bred horses which are trained and raced by Russell. Their shared vision is for all clients to experience the thrill of breeding and owning a winning racehorse through offering top quality stallions at affordable prices.

  • Bon Aurum Returns To Riverbank Roster

    Mon, 20 May 2019

    "A wonderful addition to the Riverbank roster," is how principal Dr Caroline Duddy describes Gr1 winner Bon Aurum who takes residence at the Benalla stud this spring where he will stand alongside Redente, Boulder City, Von Costa de Hero, Skilled, Wayed Zain and Anacheeva. "We are very excited to welcome him to Riverbank," Dr Duddy enthused, adding, “He offers exceptional value with the added bonus of having vet fees included if your mare stays with us." Remaining at the $5,500 fee he stood for during his debut season last spring, Bon Aurum served a quality book of mares including the stakes winners Hello Pamela and Tango Amigos, the dams of stakes winners Bons Away and Riziz as well as daughters of More Than Ready, Flying Spur, Commands, Red Ransom, Grand Lodge, Magnus, Bernardini, Rubiton, Hussonet, Street Sense and Lonhro. Described by trainer Ciaron Maher as "a tough horse, an exceptional athlete and a beautiful type," Bon Aurum (winner of almost $600,000) was bred and raced by Ken King who also raced his sire Bon Hoffa. Both horses claimed the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (a race also won by successful stallions Encosta de Lago, Testa Rossa and Exceed And Excel) - Bon Hoffa in 2007 with Bon Aurum saluting nine years later. The striking Bon Aurum is one of 151 winners sired by popular Bon Hoffa, whose progeny this season have won 65 races. Other impressive runners for Bon Hoffa include the exciting last start Country Championship winner Noble Boy (winner of six of his first seven starts), the in-form sprinter Bon Amis (winner of seven of his 15 starts including three of his last four) and the recent Adelaide Magic Millions 2Y0 Classic winner Done By Me. Hailing from a strong European family, Bon Aurum can boast amongst his relations the Gr1 gallopers Court Masterpiece (Sussex Stakes, Prix de la Foret) and Classic Park (Irish 1000 Guineas).

  • Pecans Aims For Repeat Hawkesbury Gr2 Success

    Fri, 26 Apr 2019

    Successful in the Gr3 Hawkesbury Crown (1300m) 12 months ago where she defeated a class line up which included Ghisoni, Invincibella, Spright and Sedanzer, Joe Pride’s Pecans is aiming for back to back wins in the race after the 5YO daughter of Skilled was allocated top weight of 58kgs for this year’s race. Pride has done a fantastic job with the mare, recording three black-type wins, and further success this Saturday will only heighten appeal as she heads towards next week’s Inglis Chairman’s Sale as part of Newgate Farm’s draft. Consigned as Lot 19, Pecan’s is a half-sister to Lonhro’s Listed winner Secession, both out of the Listed-winning Procol Harum mare Walnut. “Pecans has been the best race mare in my stable for the past two seasons. She is tough, durable and extremely versatile, winning from 1200m-1600m. She is a three-time stakes-winning mare who was able to compete against the best of her generation,” stated Pride. Well in the market behind Bjorn Baker’s race favourite Irithea, jockey Corey Brown will jump Pecans away from barrier eight in the nine horse field.

  • Additional Weir Staff Find Replacement Work

    Thu, 21 Feb 2019

    Following earlier reports this week that Ciaron Maher and David Eustace had to make a dozen former Darren Weir staff redundant, comes the pleasing news from racing.com that the Ballarat stable of Mitch Freedman has absorbed one those 12 plus another six staff who worked for the now disqualified trainer. Freedman, whose father and grandfather were bookmakers, has been steadily growing his stable since it first opened two years ago. A former foreman for Weir, Freedman has recenty been granted added capacity at Ballarat's progressive training centre, and will soon have access to another 18 boxes to underpin the growth of the stable which has around 40 horses on its books at present. With new business arriving via the support of syndicators, Freedman said, "It's always great to be able to take on new staff and of course we're always looking for skilled workers to help us as our business grows."

  • Broodmare Owners Get Behind Winx's Brother

    Thu, 1 Nov 2018

    Winx’s unprecedented fourth consecutive Gr1 Cox Plate win has added even more excitement for the breeders of nearly 100 mares sent to her half-brother Boulder City this season, reports Throughbred Breeders Victoria. Making his stud debut at Russell Osborne and Caroline Duddy’s Riverbank Farm in Victoria, the impeccably-bred son of multiple Champion Sire Snitzel and Vegas Showgirl has been a dream to market at a very reasonable $5,500, and broodmare owners have responded accordingly. Shortly after the Moonee Valley showpiece, Riverbank Farm’s principals served their well-proven broodmare Lions Kiss (who already boasts progeny earnings of nearly $500,000) with Boulder City. In addition to having Winx as a half-sister, $2.3 million Inglis Easter yearling Boulder City, unraced due to niggling injuries, is also a full-brother to ill-fated Gr3-winning colt El Divino. He stands alongside fellow sires Redente, Skilled, Wayed Zain and Von Costa de Hero.

  • Encouraging Signs For First Sidestep 2YOs

    Wed, 12 Sep 2018

    Queensland’s Telemon Thoroughbreds is approaching both the new stud and early 2YO races with a fair degree of excitement. Standing Godolphin’s Champion 2YO Sidestep (Exceed and Excel-Dextrous, by Quest For Fame), who spent his first three seasons on the Darley roster, has given the new operation a strong platform from which to grow. As a Gr1 Golden Slipper runner-up by Exceed and Excel, who is renowned for providing his progeny with precocity, Sidestep’s stallions’ pedigree suggested his runners would come early. So far so good, with One Step (Hawkesbury) and Kaihi (Gold Coast) both looking like smart juvenile prospects who have impressed Telemon general manager Joe Heather. “It’s really encouraging to see a couple show up in the early trials,” enthused Heather. “We keep hearing positive feedback about how well the Sidesteps are shaping up, and to see that both to be produced in public have lovely actions and are doing everything right at this early stage is pleasing.” Sidestep, whose half-brothers include Gr1 performers Skilled and Ambidexter, is standing the 2018 season for $7,700.

  • Ellis Excited for Te Akau in New Season

    Tue, 17 Jul 2018

    Te Akau Racing principal David Ellis says he is looking forward to the 2018-19 racing season, a season that will see young horseman Jamie Richards take over as head trainer at the Matamata based operation, reports NZ Racing Desk. "There will be a change at the Te Akau helm, however it's not actually a time of real change. Jamie Richards will be the sole Te Akau trainer but together with an outstanding team, it will be 'business as usual' with plenty of exciting goals for the new season," said Ellis. "We have a team of world class horse people - skilled and experienced professionals who contribute so much to Te Akau's success. It's now over 30 years since I established Te Akau Racing and we have a very strong framework of fundamentals in place." Ellis added: "We will have about 50 horses to trial at Te Teko in early August. The horses I am picking to lead the early charge are Mongolianconqueror, Melody Belle, Age of Fire, Avantage and Sword of Osman, but there are plenty of others that we are confident will step up to Group level. The quality of bloodstock that we have in the stable to race in the new season has everyone very excited."

  • Richards Appointed to Te Akau Role

    Thu, 17 May 2018

    Experienced and respected horseman Paul Richards will join the Te Akau Racing team, reports NZ Racing Desk. "Te Akau intends to target all the major racing carnivals in Australia as well as New Zealand and Paul will assume the role of travelling foreman," said Te Akau principal, David Ellis. "The calibre of bloodstock that we have in the stable for the new season is formidable and we cannot wait for the season to get underway." Ellis added: "Paul is also very skilled in dealing with young people and, with his many successful years in the saddle, he will also be concentrating on guiding and developing our Te Akau apprentices. This too is an area where he has excelled." Richards' son Jamie is currently training at Te Akau with Stephen Autridge, but will take over as sole head trainer at the beginning of the new season.

  • Champion 2YO Sidestep To Stand In Queensland

    Wed, 2 May 2018

    In a coup for Queensland, the State is set to gain Australian Champion 2YO Colt Sidestep (Exceed and Excel-Dextrous, by Quest For Fame). In an historic arrangement with Godolphin Australia, Sidestep will become the highest-rated son of exceptional juvenile stallion Exceed And Excel to stand in Queensland. The dual Group-winning half-brother to Gr1 performers Skilled and Ambidexter was the first colt home when runner-up to Overreach in the 2013 renewal of the Gr1 Golden Slipper (see below). Sun Stud’s decision to consolidate its thoroughbred investments in Victoria will see its currently leased Queensland stud farm re-launched as Telemon Thoroughbreds in June, with principal Dan Fletcher enthusing, “It’s our privilege to offer a horse the calibre of Sidestep. He’d be one of the best 2YOs to stand up here in my time. The other horses that were at a similar level at two include Written Tycoon, General Nediym, Show a Heart and Brave Warrior and they all made a massive impact.” Godolphin Australia Managing Director Vin Cox said, “It’s a really exciting opportunity for all breeders in Queensland. I know the quality of the farm where he’ll be standing from my time in Queensland so that was a huge attraction.” Meanwhile Darley’s stallion Head of Sales, Alastair Pulford noted, “Those of us familiar with the horse know he’s a fantastic type. He’s very correct, has great scope as well as width, and looks exactly what he is: an elite, precocious athlete.” Telemon and Godolphin have committed to make Sidestep, currently a reverse shuttler in Europe, available to Queensland breeders for a minimum of the next two seasons, with breeders supporting him in 2018 guaranteed they can access the horse in 2019 without paying an increase to his current season fee of $7,700.

Pecans, who was sold by Godolphin to Tricolours Syndications for $50,000 at the 2017 Inglis Melbourne August Bloodstock Sale, improved her record to 5 wins and 5 placings from 13 starts for $285,515 in earnings.

  • Government Visa Announcement Boosts Breeding Sector

    Wed, 17 Jan 2018

    The Federal Government's announcement regarding enhanced access to 'Horse Breeder' visas was warmly welcomed by Thoroughbred Breeders Australia (TBA). The decision follows a lobbying campaign led by TBA to put the 'Horse Breeder' occupation category on the medium and long term strategic skills list (MTSSL) for the purposes of 457 visas. By putting 'Horse Breeder' on the medium and long-term list, visa holders can work in Australia for up to four years and also have a path to permanent residency – rather than being required to leave the country after just two years under existing arrangements." Access to skilled staff is one of the biggest issues in the Australian Thoroughbred breeding industry and that is why TBA has been closely engaged with the government and Members of Parliament to bring about this key decision," TBA CEO Tom Reilly said. "TBA would like to thank Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton, Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, Agriculture Minister David Littleproud, their advisers and other Members of Parliament who greatly assisted our industry on this issue." Reilly said TBA undertook significant work, including with other industry stakeholders, to see this decision come to fruition.

  • First SW For Skilled In Gr3 Belle Of The Turf

    Tue, 2 Jan 2018

    %%20171228_GOS_R6:Gosford Rsl Belle Of The Turf%%

    Riverbank Agistment's beautifully-bred and performed stallion Skilled (Commands-Dextrous, by Quest For Fame) sired his first stakes-winner last Thursday at Gosford, north of Sydney, when 4YO mare Pecans (Skilled-Walnut, by Procol Harum) scored by 0.2-lengths for trainer Joe Pride in the $148,000 Gr3 Belle of the Turf (1600m). Runner-up was 4YO mare Sedanzer (Sebring-Voltdanze, by Danzero) ahead of 5YO mare Positive Problems (Sebring-Dream'n'Believe, by Shamardal). The victory took Pecans' promising record to 4 wins and 5 second placings from just 14 starts for $185,765 earnings. Her Gr1 Champagne Stakes-winning sire Skilled, also runner-up in the Gr1 Sires Produce Stakes in Sydney, is one of three top-class siblings out of multiple group-winner Dextrous. The others include Australian Champion 2YO Colt and Gr1 Golden Slipper runner-up Sidestep (standing at Darley), as well as Gr1-placed Gr2 winner Ambidexter. Skilled stood the 2017 season at a bargain fee of $3,300.

  • Staff Shortage a Serious Handicap for Industry

    Mon, 27 Nov 2017

    Thoroughbred industry leader John Messara has issued a warning about the critical shortage of skilled equine staff on farms and in racing stables. The former Chairman of Racing Australia and Racing NSW said: “The NSW industry has made outstanding progress in the past few years. However, further progress and growth will be seriously limited if we cannot attract more young people to industry training and long-term careers working with thoroughbreds at all stages of their life-cycle.” Messara believes the solution will be found only if the industry and the Federal Government work together. “Right now…our current visa protocols stop us from taking on well-trained overseas staff who want to work here from established equine centres such as Ireland, the UK and France,” he said. The Working Holiday Visa limits the time young people can stay in Australia with an employer and the 457 Visa in many instances is not a workable proposition for young people finding their way into the industry. Racing Australia is lobbying appropriate Federal Government agencies on this matter. Mr Messara concluded: “At some stage, without urgent Federal Government action, some employers will reach the point of winding up their businesses and leaving the industry because of this problem. So we’ll lose their investment, expertise and energy, and ultimately that will impact on all the businesses and communities, often in rural areas in the case of horse studs, that depend on thoroughbred horses being bred, sold and raced.”
