MULTIPLE CHAMPION SIRE PINS REPRESENTS ONE OF NEW ZEALAND’S FINEST EVER STALLIONS.

With 74 stakes winners he is not only distinguished as New Zealand’s 4th leading stakes producer of all time, but also as the very best sire this country has ever seen in terms of stakes wins registered in Hong Kong.

With phenomenal consistency, PINS averages 8 stakes winners each season – invariably, one of these 8 is a star of international repute.

PINS currently commands international attention as the sire of Hong Kong's 5x G1 winning sprinter AEROVELOCITY - a horse that has twice defied the world to win the Gr.1 Longines Hong Kong Sprint.

Before AEROVELOCITY, it was NZ’s best ever export to Hong Kong, the 2x HK Horse of the Year and 7x G1 winning AMBITIOUS DRAGON who held court. Before that the headline making likes of Cox Plate hero EL SEGUNDO, Singapore sensation WAIKATO, NZ’s record breaker KATIE LEE and so on.

All told, PINS has produced 11 G1 winners, 7 million dollar plus earners and is one of just 7 stallions in Australasia to boast a stakes winners-to-runners ratio of 7.6% or better.

PINS’ black-type prepotency is confirmed by his collection of international awards.

To date, he has celebrated 2 Hong Kong Sire premierships and has twice been honoured as the victor of the Centaine Award (global progeny earnings).

In 2015-16, PINS was Australasia’s 4th leading sire for winners-to-runners.
With a lifetime ratio of 69.6% winners-to-runners, PINS ranks in a league of his own in terms of value and elite opportunity presented.

With G1 winners BRAMBLES and STRATUM STAR, and 17 other stakes winners announcing his arrival as a damsire, demand continues to rise for his daughters, with broodmares selling for up to A$380,000.

He also commands strong international demand for his yearlings, with 2017 NZB Premier Yearlings averaging $118,889 and selling for up to $350,000.

Stands for $25,000 +GST, LFG in 2017.
