Yarradale Stud will add Vital Equine (Ire) to its Gidgegannup roster this year.

A son of Danetime, he has been based at Touchstone Stud and has sired 53 individual winners with his oldest progeny five year-olds.  His best gallopers to date have been Listed winner Takanori and the Simon Miller trained sprinter Sujet who increased his earnings to $260,000 with a Belmont victory on June 13.

“He’s capable of producing winners and trainers like them,” Premium Bloodstock agent Grant Burns told the West Australian newspaper.  “I’ve already had a few enquiries from broodmare owners.”

Vital Equine will stand for a $3,850 (inc gst) service fee.

Touchstone Stud has been home to Redoute’s Dancer, Flying Pegasus, Shrewd Rhythm, Natural Blitz and Vital Equine since commencing operations at North Dandalup in 2007.   Owner David Bishop has bought out the other partners in the property and will stand Planet Five (Storm Cat) this year.
