Glenlogan Park Changes Course!
Written on the 31 March 2017
Queensland's leading stud farm, Glenlogan Park, situated in Innisplain via Beaudesert, has announced they will no longer be standing stallions this season nor in the foreseeable future.
"This is something we have been angling towards for a number of years and with the national scene going from strength-to-strength in recent times, now seemed like the ideal time to make the transition," Glenlogan Park principal Jon Haseler said.
"Our focus will be on producing the very best yearlings and racehorses we can and presenting them at all of the major sales around the country."
Thoroughbred Breeders Queensland Association president, Basil Nolan, wished them well with their change of direction.
"I would like to wish them the best of luck with this new breeding venture and I have no doubt the Stud's success will continue as a nursery of champion race horses that will continue to be highly sought after around the country," said Mr Nolan.
Glenlogan Park has been standing stallions for the past 25 years, with the sires on the farm, dominating the local racing scene in recent years.
"They (Glenlogan Park) have been a long standing supporter of the Queensland Industry for at least 25 years and have had tremendous success as one of the State's leading studs, producing many champion sires, and runners, season after season," said Nolan.
"There is no doubt Jon and Steve have a clear direction for their future and they will continue to support Queensland with their new endeavours."
Although Glenlogan Park will no longer stand stallions on the farm, they will still maintain a close association and ownership with four sires going forward.
"We launched the career of Written Tycoon's brilliant son Rich Enuff last year and he is a sire we have an enormous amount of faith in," Glenlogan's General Manager Steve Morley said.
"He served a cracking book of mares in his first season that will give him a terrific chance to really explode out of the blocks and I know our partners down in Victoria (Woodside) have already had tremendous interest in him this year."
"He is such a magnificent looking animal and he has all the ingredients to be a real superstar! He is a horse we will continue to support heavily with our own mares and we will be right behind them all the way through to the racetrack. There is no way I can see this stallion being anything but a star!"
Glenlogan will also join forces with a trio of quality Queensland farms to stand three of their other sires this season - Rothesay, Real Saga and Jet Spur.
"We absolutely realise that these three will still have so much to offer the Qld racing and breeding scene and having them available to breeders is imperative as they really do provide the backbone to a lot of our metropolitan racing up here," Morley said.
Glenlogan stallions Real Saga, Rothesay and Jet Spur will be standing at Eureka, Lyndhurst and Grandview (respectively).
"I have no doubt breeders will continue to support these stallions, as they have a proven record and it is great to see them remain here in Queensland," said Mr Nolan.
