「远近驰名」将在新西兰配种

「远近驰名」将入驻新西兰的布莱特希尔牧场,成为「范高尔」第一匹在南半球做种公马的子嗣。

2019年南半球春季,新西兰的布莱特希尔牧场(Brighthill Farm)将迎来一匹新种公马——「远近驰名」,这是世界马王「范高尔」首次有子嗣在南半球开启种公马生涯。

「远近驰名」服役期间由彼得·维拉爵士和休比·德伯共同拥有,经历过两任驯马师,先是马丁·米德,后为马克·托德爵士。

在米德的训练下,「远近驰名」赢下过在法国多维尔赛马场举行的二级赛纪尧姆奥纳诺大赛(Prix Guillaume d'Ornano),并且在英国德比大赛上夺得过殿军,表明了自己是当时欧洲最强的三岁马之一。

被托德爵士接手后,它在澳洲的一级赛兰威特锦标赛中仅不敌「阿维利乌斯」,获得过亚军。因澳洲已有在役马名为「远近驰名」,所以这匹现年五岁的公马在澳洲服役时用的名字为「驰名小子」。

据布莱特希尔牧场的老板米克·金透露,他们近来正在为「远近驰名」寻觅合伙马主,剑桥育马场、温莎公园、豪努伊牧场和霍尔马克育马场等育马场现在已经同意入股。

第一个育种季里,「远近驰名」的配种费将为8000新西兰元(税前)。

「远近驰名」的父系「范高尔」服役期间未尝一败,退役配种后功绩也毫不逊色,短短几季中,它已经繁育出了31匹级别赛冠军子嗣,7匹一级赛冠军子嗣,当中以去年和「温克斯」共享"世界马王"殊荣的「金库神偷」名声最为响亮。
