Van Nistelrooy to Shuttle Again to New Zealand

Irish group II winner will return to Trelawney Stud in Cambridge, New Zealand, following his present stallion duties at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky. Last year, the 4-year-old son of Storm Cat covered well over 100 mares while on his New Zealand debut, and with his fertility rate running at 88%, he will get about 100 foals on the ground this year.

A half-brother to four U.S. graded stakes winners, Van Nistelrooy won half his six starts and ran second in the Aga Khan Stud National Stakes (Ire-I). He is out of the Halo mare Halory, whose offspring includes group II winner Halory Hunter.
