Arrowfield Stud Tops in Australia

Miss Finland had seven stakes wins to help Arrowfield Stud become the top breeder last season.

Led by champion filly Miss Finland, Arrowfield Stud topped Australia’s list of leading breeders of stakes winners in the 2006-07 season.

Arrowfield bred the winners of 19 stakes races, including seven by 3-year-old star Miss Finland. That was well ahead of Gerry Harvey and Gooree Park, who were second and third with 11 and 10 stakes winners, respectively.

Mentality had three stakes victories for Arrowfield, who was also responsible for two of the top juveniles this season, Meurice and Forensics.

In addition, Arrowfield was the clear leader in the stallion ranks. The duo of Redoute’s Choice and Flying Spur were responsible for 52 stakes wins between them.

“It’s great when you consider how competitive the industry is at the present time and I must give credit for this to the whole team at Arrowfield,” said chairman John Messara.
