ull Point, Salade and Monaco Consul will be the foundation sires at new Hunter Valley stud Kingstar Farm. The farm, previously known as Redman Park, is owned by prominent breeder Matthew Sandblom, a part-owner of this year’s Golden Slipper Stakes winner Capitalist. He is also a partner in Newgate Farm.
“I want to be involved in the smaller end of the market and take a punt on a couple of stallions that would get lost on the roster of a bigger stud,” said Sandblom.
Fastnet Rock’s son Bull Point was G1 placed in the Golden Rose and won the G3 Manfred Stakes at Caulfield. A $960,000 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale purchase, he raced 25 times for four wins and seven placings and is from sister to the dam of Criterion.
Bull Point will stand for a fee of $7700 inc GST with a bonus offer of lifetime breeding rights to the first 50 breeders who send two mares to the stallion in his first two seasons at Kingstar Farm.
Salade, by Snitzel, won the G2 Pago Pago Stakes. He has been at stud for four seasons and will stand on a fee of $4400. Monaco Consul, the G1 winner by High Chaparral, stands for $6600.
