Sun Stud Announces Launch Of Exciting 'Sun Club' Initiative
Leading stallion operation, Sun Stud, has announced the introduction of the 'Sun Club', an exciting opportunity for broodmare owners to secure lifetime breeding rights in two of the Stud's promising young sires - Ready For Victory and Jabali. Sales & Nominations Manager, Mark Lindsay explained the details of the initiative: "The premise for the Sun Club is quite simple, but the benefits have the potential to reward our club members long term," Lindsay points out. "Basically, Sun Club members send one mare in 2016 to Ready For Victory for $16,500 (2016 Service Fee: $9,900 + $6,600 VOBIS SIRES' scheme/ Sun Club Membership) or to Jabali for $9,900 (2016 Service Fee: $7,700 + $2,200 Sun Club Membership)," Lindsay said. "Payment is not due until you actually have a foal on the ground, which works along similar lines to the Live Foal Payment we have on all Sun Stud stallions." He added: "You then are open to send a mare for FREE in 2017, and a mare in 2018 for FREE. Any member that fills the three nominations receives a lifetime breeding right to that stallion for the remainder of his stud career." The Sun Club concept has stemmed from the success of stallions at stud such as Encosta De Lago, Street Boss and Not A Single Doubt. Sun Stud (formerly Eliza Park International) launched the careers of Love Conquers All, currently Australia's Leading First Season Sire; Moshe, Victoria's Leading First Season Sire and; Written Tycoon, who was the first Victorian-based stallion to win a national premiership in decades when crowned Australia's Champion First Season Sire. His introductory fee? $8,250! Under the Sun Club, breeders can access a potential champion at a set fee and not be 'penalised' when fees increase commensurate with performance. And both Ready For Victory and Jabali will be given every opportunity to succeed. Ready For Victory is an ideal fit for Victoria - he won a stakes race on debut as a 2YO at Flemington and then ran a very unlucky fourth in the Golden Slipper at his second start, while the Queensland bound, Jabali, was the second highest rated 2YO colt, finishing second in the Blue Diamond, before winning the Queensland Guineas at three.
