By Invincible Spirit, who is starting to achieve world-wide acclaim as a sire of sires, Cable Bay (IRE) has all the attributes that Australian breeders search for, an outstanding pedigree, stakes-performing juvenile and a well-conformed, exceptionally looking horse.
The highest rated 2YO in the UK and Ireland to go to stud the year he retired, Cable Bay was duly supported with a quality book of mares. His first northern hemisphere crop resulted in 25 juvenile winners and eight stakes performers throughout Europe, highlighting the speed and precocity that Cable Bay processed himself.
Having served three exceptional books of handpicked mares in his first three Australian breeding seasons, Cable Bay has been given a significant head start to succeed.
“To demonstrate the support he received in his first few seasons in Australia, more than 25% of the mares he covered were stakes winners or stakes performers, including a full-sister to All Too Hard, and a half-sister to Black Caviar,” James Price – CEO.
With his first Australian crop now 2, and in the stables of leading trainers Mick Price & Michael Kent, Ciaron Maher & David Eustace, Robbie Griffiths, Anthony Freedman, Gai Waterhouse and Danny O’Brien, the reports on the progeny of Cable Bay from trainers has been very positive and we look forward to seeing them on race day.
With 10 stakes performers to his credit and over 50 individual winners, it will only be a matter of time before the success of his southern hemisphere runners emulates the deeds of those in the north.
