Where Are All The Stayers in WA? Here’s One Right Here-And At The Right Price Too!

By the Group 2 Goodwood Cup (3200m) winner and top ten Melbourne Cup finisher ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE, and from a mare who won at Moonee Valley to 2040m, this geldings breeding has been purposely matched to produce a stayer. And very importantly-he’s been given plenty of time to properly mature.

Stayers blood pulses through his veins on both his fathers’ side who proved his prowess over the longer journeys winning an impressive 10 races, and also on his mother’s side too because as well as winning over 2040m at Moonee Valley, she has a New Zealand based pedigree with plenty of big race success over the longer trips including CLUDEN CREEK who won The Wellington Cup (Group 1) over 3200m.

This tough gelding will stay longer than your mother in law. Check out the video!


Being trained by Steve Wolfe who has stables in both Perth and Albany, this is a tall horse with plenty of length about him. He’s bred to be a stayer, he looks like a stayer, he’s been prepared like a stayer, and he’s certainly a horse who should be at his best when he gets out to 2000m and more.

He’s not been rushed at all through his young, formative years, and we’re hoping that it’ll pay off in spades as he progresses forward.

With the release of this syndication, here’s your opportunity to benefit from all the time and patience shown to him, as he’s now set to go straight through to trials and maybe even the races at his first solid campaign.

Let’s go racing!
