The Hail To Reason sireline has been so successful in this part of the world. More Than Ready and Red Ransom have been remarkable influences from it in recent times and a look at the current two year old sires tables shows that their sons are going right on with the job now. This augers well for Red Arrow (pictured), our beautifully bred son of Red Ransom whose first yearlings are about to be offered at the upcoming Australian Yearling Sales.
Red Ransom's son Charge Forward is currently a long, long way ahead on the two year old sires list. His nine two year old runners so far this season have resulted in four winners, three of them stakes winners, and his two year old earnings are already a very impressive $605,100. At that figure he is some $330,400 ahead of second placed Snitzel!
Leading the first season sires table both by earnings and winners is More Than Ready's Golden Slipper winning son Sebring. A remarkable two year old himself, Sebring's first crop has already produced four individual winners and $176,295 in stakes with the promise of so much more to come.
Red Arrow's first crop yearlings will be offered at the upcoming Magic Millions Gold Coast, Sydney Classic, Melbourne Premier and Magic Millions Adelaide sales. A magnificently bred and well performed example of this wonderful Hail To Reason sireline, we are sure the Red Arrow yearlings will really impress.
Are we at Blue Gum Farm sold on the Hail To Reason sireline? Not long after the first crop Red Arrows, we will be in a position to offer the first crop of the five time Group 1 winner Canford Cliffs, yet another example of this ultra successful line. We are very confident that its influence will continue!
