Exceedingly Good For Secret Hill Farms
Exceedingly Good is set to become the world's first son of Exceed and Excel to go to stud, as he joins the stallion roster at Queensland's Secret Hill Farms in 2009.
John Doherty, with the aid of Blue Sky Thoroughbreds' Julian Blaxland has acquired a significant band of boutique broodmares in recent years including stakes mares Cheeky Choice, Superfly, Gwendolyn and Chinamora.
The Doherty's share a passion for breeding and racing and are excited along with Secret Hill Farms stud manager Don Mackinnon for the prospects of Exceedingly Good stud.
“He's what we all look for in a young stallion; type, pedigree and racecourse performance” commented Mackinnon,
“The colonial speed sons and grandsons of Danehill consistently produce what breeders, owners and trainers demand in Australia, sound, early running types that train on - this colt is the complete package”.
Exceedingly Good will stand his first season at Secret Hill Farms at $7,000 + GST
A limited number of shares in Exceedingly Good will be offered prior to the 2009 breeding season.

Certain select top level races are often referred to as 'breed shapers'. The same must be said of champion trainer Gai Waterhouse due to the impact her professional skills have had on Australian breeding at all levels.
Redoute's Choice has made Australia his own. Three general sires titles and a growing dynasty of sons at stud led by the likes of Snitzel and Not A Doubt has ensured a continuance of the dominant influence established by his own sire Danehill .
