Horse Description:

Champagnelifestyle is a gorgeous looking brown mare by Lonhro-and she's very special to me...

A former $100,000 yearling purchase by the Inghams in Sydney, she went winless through two stables before coming to me. Her kind nature and big brown doleful eyes endeared her to all at our stables and when she won first up for us at 20/1, she gave me my biggest ever win on the punt!

Although she only won that one race, she was placed and finished close up on many occasions and with normal luck could easily have won four or five. After she retired from racing, I thought that she definitely deserves her chance at stud where she should throw super looking foals. With that in mind, she's been served by the World class stayer ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE and was tested positive in foal (45 days positive pregnancy test) on November 25th 2016. Her foal will therefore be due between September 7th & 22nd 2017.

90% syndicated, there's just 5% of her available for $440. As a part owner of a brood mare, you'll get the same share percentage in the mare's offspring too....

The upkeep for a 5% share in one of our syndicated broodmares is $80/month which allows for agistment, minor vet/farrier/worming expenses etc, and a management fee.

Now residing at Watagan Grange, NSW, her foals will race in NSW as they'll be BOBS eligible.
