Gold Front Thoroughbreds has announced its highly-credentialled sire Awesome Rock will be standing for a fee of $9,900 (inc GST) in the upcoming breeding season.

Awesome Rock’s oldest progeny are four year-olds and they’ve already made a huge impact with a 14% Stakes-winners to individual-winners strike-rate.

Awesome John (G2 WATC Derby) and Red Sun Sensation (G3 SAJC Chairman’s Stakes) have led the way this season following Searchin’ Roc’s who blazed a trail last season winning the G3 WATC Champion Fillies, G3 R J Peters Stakes, LR Belmont Oaks and LR Belgravia Stakes.

Awesome Rock (Photo / Western Racepix) is a son of Champion Australian stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill) and was a leading Melbourne 2yo winning a Sandown Lakeside nursery second time out prior to a fast-finishing second in the G2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes at Flemington.

He kept progressing for trainers Leon and Troy Corstens and sealed a stud career with a Group 1 victory in the VRC Emirates Stakes (2000m) at Flemington during the 2016 Melbourne Cup carnival.

Since retiring to Gold Front Thoroughbreds, Awesome Rock has made significant strides off moderate-sized books in his first three seasons at stud.  But his exceptional record has since garnered an impressive following with 107 mares covered last season at a fee of $7,700.

Gold Front Thoroughbreds is looking forward to Awesome Rock continuing his rise up the WA stallion ranks leading into the 2023 breeding season and invites breeders to book early to avoid disappointment.
