In a huge coup for the Group 1 sire, All American will cover Naturalist – the dam of boom horse Royal Symphony.
The breeder of the Caulfield Guineas favourite, Joe Vella of Wingrove Park has been a loyal client of Chatswood since breeding to Geiger Counter in the 90’s. Meanwhile, Naturalist will be no stranger to Chatswood Stud, having visited several of our stallions in the past.
For Joe, the choice of All American for his beloved Naturalist was a simple one. Despite big offers from big studs, Joe decided to replicate what has worked previously.
Royal Symphony is by Domesday (Red Ransom). All American is also by Red Ransom so the resultant foal will be a 3/4 relation to Royal Symphony.
Naturalist will be ready for a cover within a week.
We wish Joe, Tony McEvoy and all connections of Royal Symphony good luck for the big race tomorrow.
