All American to Victoria


Wednesday, 10 May 2017 - Geisel Park announces that Western Australia’s most popular stallion for the 2016 season has been transferred to the leading Victorian Stallion Farm, Chatswood Stud.


The All American Syndicate secured control on All American from Arrowfield in March 2016. With the outstanding deeds of Yankee Rose and numerous quality winners across Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the US, the All American Syndicate has fielded numerous enquiries to relocate the imposing son of Red Ransom back to the East Coast.


Transferring All American to the second largest thoroughbred market in Australasia is a positive step in continuing the renaissance of the Group 1 winning racehorse and sire.


Geisel Park principal, Eddie Rigg commented, “Obviously we are disappointed not to retain All American in Western Australia, however the Chatswood proposal was compelling and just too good of an opportunity for All American and his owners not to pursue.”


“I intend to remain a shareholder and will continue to support the stallion and will be sending mares across to Victoria to be covered by All American. I wish Greg Willis and the Team at Chatswood all the best. All American will be sorely missed by everyone at Geisel Park.”


All American offers the complete package of pedigree, performance and physical type for breeders seeking a proven outcross for mares.


All American will stand the upcoming season at Chatswood Stud at $13,200 (including GST) and is expected to get a book well over 100 mares.


An outstanding pre-Christmas stakes-winning 2yo, All American ran second in the Gr.1 Blue Diamond, an unlucky 5th in Sebring’s Golden Slipper then raced on to win the Gr.1 Emirates Stakes.


In running the fastest ever Flemington mile by an entire he left international star So You Think in his wake when he was in career best form. His Hall of Fame trainer David Hayes said “he had the physique of a 3yo miler yet was one of fastest and precocious 2yos. He trained on to beat the world champion at 4. He retired as sound as he raced, my vet never saw him. I wish I had another one like him.”


In a consolation for Geisel Park, its recently acquired stallion, Vert De Grece (Ire) has arrived safely at the farm. Vert De Grece was an outstanding 2 year old winning the time honoured Gr.1 Criterium in France by 5 lengths following a fast finishing 2nd to the European 2 year old champion, Gleneagles in the Gr.2 Futurity at the Curragh, Ireland.


Vert De Grece is by Verglas (Ire) the highly successful international sire that stood for only 2 years in Australia and achieved the Australian leading sire AEI for 2011/12. Verglas’ better known Australian race horses included the Gr.1 winner, Glass Harmonium and the top WA mare, Spirited One. In his two seasons in Australia, Verglas sired 8 individual stakes-winners along with the Singaporean champion, Captain Obvious. Vert De Grece will stand his freshman season at Geisel Park for $5,500 (including GST).
