PENTIRE (GB) x AXIOM (NZ) (Zabeel (NZ))
2012 Bay Stallion 16HH.
$16,500 (inc. GST) for 2024

Champion New Zealand 3YO and dual Group 1 winner, Xtravagant was a breathtaking racehorse with phenomenal speed. His eight-length win on debut as a two-year-old was incredible, then his record breaking victories in the Guineas and the Waikato Sprint against older horses (beating five individual Group 1 winners) were unbelievable. Xtravagant is a superb looking individual with a truly international pedigree that is an outcross for Australia’s Danehill line mares. He will stand for a fee of $16,500 (inc. GST) for the 2024 breeding season.

Xtravagant has made a great start to his stallion career, with his first crop including Group 2 winner Lavish Girl and more recently the brilliant Inglis 2YO Millennium winner Xtravagant Star and Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes winner Arts.
