 Group 1 winner, Mo’unga, who shall be standing his first season at $27,500 (inc GST).

The hugely consistent son of New Zealand’s eight-time Champion sire Savabeel, was a winner on debut at two, before taking out the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas as a three-year-old. Mo’unga went on to win the Group 1 Winx Stakes, beating a formidable field which included Champion racemare Verry Elleegant (NZ).

Rarely missing a beat during his 29-race career, the talented colt was placed a further 12 times in Group 1 company. Showing incredible toughness and durability at the highest level, Mo’unga finished ahead of an impressive roll call of Group 1 winners over the course of his career that include Zaaki (GB), Montefillia, Sir Dragonet (IRE), Cascadian (GB), Think It Over, Hungry Heart, Tofane (NZ), Colette and Anamoe.

Bred by Waikato Stud, the well-related Newhaven Park newcomer is out of the Stakes-placed O’Reilly (NZ) mare Chandelier (NZ), a sister to eight winners including Group 2 victress Irlanda (NZ) and is from the family of Group 1-winning Chenille (NZ).

Newhaven Park principal, John Kelly enthused;

“It’s an exciting time for us at Newhaven Park, to be retiring a horse of Mo’unga’s calibre to the stud. His race record really showcases his soundness and durability – a winner on debut at two, a Group 1 winner at three, but also placing a further 12 times at Group 1 level – that’s testament to his toughness and a trait that he will surely pass onto his progeny.

“He’s also a beautiful specimen, fetching $325,000 as a yearling, his physical certainly matches up to his racing credentials. We’re very keen on New Zealand bloodlines here and we hope that his pedigree also offers a lot of options for Australian breeders.”
