Artie Schiller returns to Stockwell

Stockwell, the oldest thoroughbred stud farm in Victoria, is back in business with Artie Schiller returning to the fold.

Originally the farm was known as Chelandry Stud, owned by Ken Williams, he stood Chantry, Black Pampas, the sire of Lord Gavin, and for a time, Wateringbury, before he moved to West Australia, where Aquanita was sired.

When Ken Cox, a leading industrialist and a committeeman of Victoria Racing Club, took control of the property, it was renamed Stockwell.

Over a period of 40 years 19 stallions, at various times, have stood at Stockwell, some have been disappointing, but we don’t talk about those, when we focus on Showdown.

Showdown figured in the three top sires list 3 times, siring 151 winners, and was top sire and all round champion, in season 1975-76, with 54 wins.    

Mike Becker, and his son Brodie, are leasing Stockwell, and Artie Schiller returns to his former home with an impressive record as a racehorse, having had 22 starts, winning 10 races, including the prestigious US Breeders Cup Mile, he was only out of a place 4 times, collecting US $2.088.853 in stake earnings.

However, while his race record is impressive, it does not exceed his stud record, with 476 winners of over $44 million, 4 Group winners, 35 stakes winners, and 30 stakes placegetters.

Artie Schiller is by El Prado, a stakes winning son of Sadler’s Wells, while his dam, Hidden Light by Majestic, was a remarkable mare on and off the race track, she won the Santa Anita Oaks Group1, the Hollywood Oaks Group1, and the Del Mar Oaks Group 2.

Hidden Light, the dam of Artie Schiller, was a remarkable mare; besides winning three Oaks, she produced 14 foals, 13 raced 10 won races.

In his absence from Stockwell, he has sired potentially the outstanding stud prospect in Flying Artie, he was an exceptional three year old and lightly raced, his future looks secured.

Artie Schiller stands at a realistic fee for what is a proven sire; he won among the most prestigious races in the United States, the Breeders Cup

He stands at an attractive fee $13,000 plus GST
