Son of Fastnet Rock to stand 2021 season for a fee of NZ$3,000
Having stood his first three seasons at Willow Glen, Mongolian Falcon (Fastnet Rock) will relocate to Hauora Farms in Hawke's Bay where he will stand for a fee of NZ$3,000 (plus GST).
Trained by Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs, Mongolian Falcon won three of his nine starts, and placed in the Sarten Memorial (Gr 2, 1400m) before his racing career was ended by a knee issue following his sixth-placing in the New Zealand 2000 Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m).
"We have been looking for a while for a thoroughbred stallion to stand at stud, really for our own mares and also for any outside mares," Vicki Wilson said.
"I quite like the Fastnet Rock blood. All of the people we have spoken with in Australia and New Zealand that we trust, and are helping us learn this game, have said positive things about him.
"The weanlings and yearlings that I have seen so far by him have been very strong and correct, with a fantastic walk.
"We are still learning at this game and we stand a lot of stallions here at stud for our showjumping side of the business, adding him to the team is an exciting way forward, and hopefully the mares we have are a good cross for him."
