Hussonet Passes Away

Tuesday, 22nd March 2016

Cornerstone Stud has announced with great sadness the passing of former Australian Champion Sire Hussonet (Mr Prospector-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba) to a stroke yesterday morning. He was 25. Foaled in 1991, Hussonet had an amazing life, racing in the USA and standing at stud in South America, then transferring to Arrowfield Stud in New South Wales in 2003, before spending the past five years at Cornerstone Stud in the Barossa Valley, South Australia. Hussonet sired an amazing 30 individual Gr1 winners, headlined by champion galloper and 7-time Gr1 winner Weekend Hussler. His legacy will continue through his daughters and sons at stud with his reputation as a top class broodmare sire quickly gaining momentum. The team at Cornerstone Stud would like to thank shareholders and clients very much for their support of Hussonet and the Stud over the past few years. Cornerstone said it welcomes visitors to call by the farm any time to pay their respects to a very special horse.
