1st Winner For Gr1-Winning Freshman Sire Valixir
Dual European Gr1-winning Lomar Park Stud-based freshman stallion Valixir (Trempolino-Vadlamixa, by Linamix) recorded his 1st winner when 2YO gelding Whetstone (Valixir-Burford, by Commands) scored over 1100m at Wyong in NSW for trainer Rod Craig. His sire Valixir (whose family includes champion miler Vahorimix & US Gr1 Breeders' Cup Mile winner Val Royal) recorded 8 wins from 18 starts, including victories in both the 2006 UK Gr1 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot & French Gr1 Prix d'Ispahan. Valixir has 38 named foals in his 1st-crop & is due to stand the upcoming southern hemisphere season at Lomar Park Stud for $8,800.
