Casino Prince and Husson to Vinery

Vinery has increased its stallion strength with the announcement that Casino Prince, and Husson, will be taking up residence at the renowned stud, in the Hunter Valley.

Both are already proven sires, each has the score on the board, it is now upwards from here on.

It is exciting times for Vinery, with the inclusion of Casino Prince and Husson to stand alongside More Than Ready, Testa Rossa, Mossman and congrats, all have left an indelible mark as successful sires, while waiting in the wings, for his first season, is the proven weight for age performer, All Too Hard.

The negotiation to secure both young sires that have so much to offer has been a master stroke by the management of Vinery.

Casino Prince’s oldest progeny are rising four year olds, he is already credited with four Stakes performers in multiple Group l success, All Too Hard, Escado, South Australia Derby winner, Longport and Sookie.

Over two seasons he has 42 winners to his credit, and 38 place getters, earning $5,740,000 in prize money.

His sire, Flying Spur, was clearly among the better performed sons of Danehill, as a racehorse he won a Golden Slipper Stakes and sired a Slipper winner, reaching the ultimate as a sire with progeny earnings in excess of $103 million.

Casino Prince was not short of talent, when raced he recorded five wins in the best of company, capturing that elusive Group 1 in the weight for age Chipping Norton Stakes, over the mile at Randwick.

Husson can lay his claim, being described as a champion by South American standards, there is no point in arguing about that, furthermore, he never suffered defeat in five starts.

He completely refutes his male line, being by Hussonet who had a great turn of foot, as most of his progeny have inherited.

The top line emphasist is on speed, yet speed is not necessarily the principle ingredient that Husson portrays to his off spring.

He is getting progeny that can perform at a mile or better, with a winner in Peru at 2000 metres, 1800 metres in Argentina and 1600 metres in Australia.

To date Husson has sired 51 winning progeny, and seven Stakes winners, with prize money topping $2.0 million, both Husson and Casino Prince were foaled in 2003.

Vinery offers a wide selection of 13 sires to choose from, to suit the discerning breeder.



Keeping a great sire down is particularly hard if he has winners to his credit of over $100 million, and is still at the top of his game.

That’s More Than Ready, one of the few international sires that are the ultimate success in both hemispheres.

Foaled in 1997, by Southern Halo, a sire line noted for its early maturity, siring two Golden Slipper winners in Sebring and Phelan Ready.

He remains the pride of Vinery in the Hunter Valley at Scone, where the latest addition to the stallion roster, All Too Hard, is waiting in readiness to commence his season at stud.

While the new kid on the block is coming for a lot of attention, like the man with the barrow, he has the job in front of him to dethrone the lord of the manor.

Last week-end was significant for Vinery, with More Than Ready represented by two winners, Juliet’s Princess at Morphettville, and Galaxy Prince, scoring at Belmont Park in Perth.

It was also a red letter day for Testa Rossa, siring his 500th individual winner, a mile stone certainly worthy of recognition.

Tessa Rossa commenced his stud career at Yallambee Stud in Victoria, before being located to Vinery, overall he has sired 45 Stakes winners earning $50,853,583, almost $12 million of that was earned in France and Asia.

Excites, also found his way into the action, when Minh Khai won at Warwick Farm a few days earlier.

He is a handy sire getting his share of winners, he won the Sires Produce Stakes at Randwick and ran some notable placings in Stakes races, he is a son of Danewin, a dual Derby placegetter, from Staging, an outstanding race mare, plus a proven stud matron, best described as the perfect dual purpose mare.    


A Fitting Result

The More Than Ready Handicap, over the past week at Warwick Farm, provided a fitting result with the winner, Party Dress, being by the evergreen sire, Mossman.

A few punters may have been aware of the significance as both More Than Ready and Mossman are prominent sires at Vinery, in the Hunter Valley at Scone.

Those that may have supported Party Dress enjoyed a nice result, she paid $8.00.



The transition from racecourse to stud can be daunting with speculation whether the subject, (the sire), is as well received at stud as he was on the racecourse.

It’s all a new playing field now, even the rules are different, on the racecourse he dominated with his own sheer ability that will to win.

He will now be scrutinised by potential breeders on his racecourse ability, his pedigree, and his type, while good looking women turn heads, so do thoroughbreds.

All Too Hard has those qualities, he ticks all the boxes, in fact he has been doing that for quite some time.

He goes to stud with a quality book of mares to support him, he will not lack opportunity at the top level, he is destined for a great future at a highly professional stud.

Among the mares he will cover include the following.

SCARLET LADY (Queensland and N Z Oaks winner)

JESTER JEWEL (dam of Pamperlon)


MIDNIGHT MARTINI (Street Cry mare Won Gr. VRC Matriarch Stakes)

MADAM FLURRY (Dam of Gr. 1 winner Happy Trails)

DAWN ALMIGHTY Dam of NZ outstanding Gr.1 2yo of this season Ruud Awakening)

SACRET CHOICE Multiple Group winner including the Gr.1 Doncaster and Gr1 Myer Classic

NIGHT WAR winner Gr 2 Karrakatta Plate Half sister to Samaready



As Mossman, now 18 years of age and facing up to his 13th season, has always come up with a promising horse.

Whilst Buffering, doesn’t quite fit that category, he is the proven performer, his class will take him a fair way to winning the Carlton Doomben 10,000.

If there is any chink in the armour of the favourite, Our Song, he could be the one to find it; he is a pretty smart customer on his day.

Mossman, the sire of Buffering, was a good colt with a touch of class; he could easily have been a champion in the best of his age.

He won four of his 22 starts and ran nine placings in most of the major three year old events, that could have been the measuring stick in the assessment of a champion.
