Kitchwin Hills has added a second stallion to its 2021 roster, with confirmation that the Group 2-winning son of Star Witness, Graff, will stand alongside Sooboog.
Graff, a winner of four races, including the G2 Caulfield Sprint and G3 San Domenico S., and placed behind The Autumn Sun and Zousain in the 2018 G1 Golden Rose S., will stand for $13,200 (inc GST).
Kitchwin Hills' Stud Manager Mick Malone was proudly presenting the farm's new acquisition to a group of prominent breeders in the stables adjacent to the Magic Millions Gold Coast sales complex when TDN AusNZ caught up with him.
"It’s only early days, we have just announced him, but he's been received well," he said.
"You will go a long way to see a horse like him. Alan Bell bought him, that should be recommendation enough, but if you have a look at him, he's got such bone and strength.
"He's a beautiful horse. I have kept an eye on him his whole race career. Everyone remembers him. He was probably a horse that at one point, people would have been spruiking him as a $10 to $20 million stallion, and things didn't go his way.
