Al Samer to Glen Eden Stud

Friday, 3rd August 2018

Glen Eden Stud has announced that proven Redoute's Choice sire Al Samer will continue his stud career at its Moranding-based property this spring. Having covered at a private farm for the last couple of years, stud master Sonia O'Gorman welcomes Al Samer back to Victoria to complete her stallion roster that includes Group 1 winner Bon Aurum, European stayer Illustrious Blue and Italian Champion, Scintillo. "It is an honour to have Al Samer at Glen Eden Stud, as being a consistent producer of stakes horses, I look forward to giving mare owners the opportunity to again breed to his unique bloodlines in Victoria," O'Gorman said. "He can produce stakes-winning two-year-olds that will train on to show their best at three and with handpicked mares he will continue to produce quality racehorses that get the results on the track." A son of Champion stallion Redoute's Choice, Al Samer is out of the US-bred mare My Lady's Key, a direct descendent of Spring Adieu, the grand-dam of the legendary Danehill. Al Samer has sired four stakes winners and with 161 winners from 279 progeny to race, he holds an impressive 57% strike rate to date. He will stand the 2018 breeding season at a fee of $2,000.
