Oakland Park Stud’s handsome son of Lonhro Sessions is posting some outstanding figures & his progeny have only just turned 4.
Bluebloods, the highly respected industry magazine & stats bible have noted in their September/October edition that Sessions is sitting 7th in the leading 3rd Season sire list in Australia.
More impressive is the fact he is the 5th leading sire by AEI in all of Australia ahead of Snitzel (10th), Brazen Beau (11th), Not a Single Doubt (16th), So You Think (17th) and his APEX A index of 4.72 is well out front of all active Australian sires.
On the track, this powerful son of Lonhro was a short course specialist, winning the prestigious Group 2 ATC Shorts over 1100 metres and a close up third in the Group 1 MVRC Manikato Stakes to the five-time Group 1 winner Buffering, and placings in the Group 1 AJC Galaxy, Group 2 VRC Gilgai and Group 2 Concorde Stakes.
In his short stud career to date, Sessions is already the sire of 33 progeny to race for 20 individual winners of 45 races, including the outstanding stakes winner Massimo, who has amassed over $700,000 in prizemoney and the stakes-placed Put A Spell On You, a 4 time city winner.
Interesting to note Sessions has produced winners over 1000 metres to 2000 metres, with the sweet spot being between 1000 metres to 1400 metres. As Neville Duncan of Oakland Park predicted, the progeny of Sessions will furnish to very good three-year-olds and beyond.
Sessions stands this season at Oakland Park for $3,500 + GST.
