Castlevecchio, Written Tycoon Join Arrowfield Roster

catelvecchioArrowfield Stud's stallion roster will take on a different look in 2020, with dual Group 1 winner Castelvecchio retired from the track at the peak of his powers and Written Tycoon drafted from Victoria to fill a gap left when a decision was made not to shuttle three stallions from Japan.   

Arrowfield Chairman John Messara admits the decision to callquits on Castelvecchio's racetrack career was a very difficult one for him personally, with the Arrowfield-owned colt initially aimed at winning the G1 Cox Plate in the spring. 

But commercial considerations, plus the fact the new stallionwould be presented with an outstanding book of mares in hisdebut season alongside his own sire Dundeel (NZ), meant it wastoo good an opportunity to pass up and he will debut at $33,000(inc GST).

Farewell & thank you Redzel!

Redzel-Everest-WEB-2The retirement this week of Snitzel’s leading earner, Champion Sprinter Redzel, marks the close of a stunning five-year career that ranks him alongside Australia’s most celebrated speedsters.

Redzel’s place in Australian turf history is secure, as the winner of the first two runnings of The Everest, the race that has sparked a whole new level of enthusiasm for our sport.

Those two victories and his brilliant Group 1 wins at Doomben and Flemington were all flawless demonstrations of Redzel’s full-throttle pace, his super-competitive spirit and his immense class.
