Foreplay To Stand At Yarraman

Tuesday, 14th February 2006

Stakes-winning 4YO stallion Foreplay (Danehill-Procrastinate, by Jade Hunter) has joined the 2006 roster at Arthur & Harry Mitchell's Scone-based Yarraman Park Stud alongside Catbird & Magic Albert. Foreplay (a $625,000 yearling at 2003 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) recorded 2 wins (including the Listed JRA Stakes over 1100m) & 5 placings (including 3rd in last year's Gr1 Newmarket Handicap behind star sprinters Alinghi & Fastnet Rock) from 13 starts for $246,575 prize-money. Foreplay is 1 of 3 stakes-winners produced by 6-time winner Procrastinate (her victories ranged from 1100-1400m including the Gr3 Tristarc Stakes); & Procrastinate's initial 8 foals include 5 individual winners (highlighted by South African Champion Laisserfaire, Foreplay & recent Listed Queen Adelaide Stakes winner Personify). Laisserfaire (a full-sister to Foreplay) won 12 races (including 5 Gr1 triumphs) & was Champion Older Sprint Mare in South Africa in both 2000-01 & 2001-02. Foreplay's bloodlines also boast a lineage tracing back to Silver Slipper Stakes & Widden Stakes winner Rainbeam; his 2nd-dam Reigntaine is the celebrated unraced half-sister to NZ Champion Sire Centaine.
