THE wisdom of the management of the Glenlogan Park Stud, a team headed by prominent businessman Jon Haseler and manager Steve Morley, in concentrating in the last ten years on talented Australian gallopers for its stallion yards, reaped more impressive rewards in the 2013-14 racing year which ended at the end of July.
One of the most interesting results was the aggregate income earned during the year by the six sires at the Innisplain Valley located Glenlogan Park that had runners. Despite the fact that one, Real Saga, had only two crops of racing age, and another Red Element, was in his first year of representation, they ended up with earnings for the year of over $16million, a record for a Queensland stud. The money would have been much greater, if Queensland prize money was up with that offered in New South Wales and Victoria.
The top contributor again to the Glenlogan results was their Queensland superstar sire Show a Heart, a Star Kingdom male line product of the mating of Brave Warrior and the tough Regal Advice mare Miss Sandman. He finished with 107 winners (10 overseas) of 173 races and $4,557,721 (Aust earnings $3,041,935).
