THE NORTHERN METEOR LEGACY
Apr 11, 2015
The death of super stallion Northern Meteor was a big loss for the breeding industry but his legacy looks like living on thanks to his brilliant colts who are in short supply and huge demand around Australia!
His best son ZOUSTAR was a dual Group 1 winner and was sold for over $20 million as a stallion prospect. He now stands at Widden Stud and is the hottest young sire of his year.
It was announced this week that Northern Meteor's Group 2 winning colt DEEP FIELD would stand at Newgate Farm in the Hunter Valley. A stud deal will soon be announced for his other Group 1 winning son SHOOTING TO WIN who won the Caulfield Guineas.
With Northern Meteor now deceased, his last crop of yearlings sold this year and as you could imagine they were hot property. We were lucky enough to secure one of his colts at the Melbourne Sale. He is a replica of his old man..fast and powerful and we are hoping that one day he will be standing alongside the like of Zoustar in the stallion barn!
