Hat Trick to Shuttle to Australia

Japanese champion Hat Trick to shuttle from U.S. to Australia.

Hat Trick, a Japanese record-setting champion miler by Sunday Silence, will stand the Southern Hemisphere at Independent Stallions Victoria in Nagambie, Australia. He entered stud this year at John T.L. Jones III and Robert Trussell’s  Walmac Farm near Lexington and stood for $15,000. His Australian fee will be $16,500 (about $15,700), which includes GST.

“Every son of this great sire (Sunday Silence) that has stood in Australia has left a group I winner, and I believe he is an outstanding prospect on pedigree, performance, and type,” said Independent Stallions’ Mike Becker.

Seven-year-old Hat Trick, who is out of the grade II winner Tricky Code (by Lost Code), won eight of 21 races and earned $3,122,708.
