Sacred Falls


With his 4x G1 winning race record boasting dual Doncaster success, champion bloodlines and compelling physicality, NZ’s major players have endorsed him with top mares.

Bolstered by powerful shareholder support, SACRED FALLS received the best of starts in 2015, covering 135 mares which included 4 G1 producers, 20 stakes producers & 12 stakes winners.

Heading this list was Trelawney Stud’s NZ Broodmare of the Year, SAYYIDA, the noted dam of the 5x G1 winning, Cox Plate Champion, OCEAN PARK.

Soundness and durability personified, SACRED FALLS was unbeaten at 2 and a G1 winner at age 3, 4 and 5.

Under the care of Cambridge trainer Tony Pike, the WS-bred entire was unbeaten in NZ, winning the G1 NZ 2000 Guineas, the G2 Hawke’s Bay Guineas, the G3 James & Annie Sarten Memorial Stakes and the Listed Westbury Stud Challenge Stakes.

Whilst awarded Champion NZ 3YO (up to 1600m) for these deeds, it was in Australia, under the tutelage of Chris Waller that the Raffles-raced galloper achieved his crowning glory, scoring back-to-back wins at age 3 & 4 in their greatest mile event, the G1 Doncaster Mile at Randwick.

In doing so, SACRED FALLS created history as the first colt in over 50 years to win back-to-back G1 Doncaster Miles.

His explosive G1 George Main Stakes win at 5 subsequently sealed his place as Australia’s finest miler and confirmed a top international rating as the World’s Top Rated Colt from 1301-2100m.

In SACRED FALLS’ 4 G1 triumphs, he defeated 25 G1 winners and he was the only horse to beat PIERRO in Sydney. His A$4.7 million in stakes via a race record showing 7 black-type wins, ensured his place as the highest earning NZ-bred stallion in history to retire to stud in NZ.

SACRED FALLS' pedigree embodies the phenomenal bloodlines of Champion sires O’REILLY & REDOUTE’S CHOICE.

O’REILLY is the sire of 16 G1 winners and with 84 stakes winners - and still counting, is distinguished as the 3rd leading stakes producer in New Zealand’s breeding history.

Champion sire, REDOUTE’S CHOICE is proving to be a force to be reckoned with as a damsire, with results so far including 47 stakes winners & 4 G1 stars.

Dam IGUAZU’S GIRL is closely related to black-type stars SPLASHING OUT, SHOPAHOLIC, IGUAZU, GRAND DANCER, ASPINAL & PACKING PINS. This is the family of G1 Victoria Derby winner OMNICORP, CRIMSON, PHAROSTAN and VONUSTI.
SACRED FALLS’ first crop spring foals herald the next successful chapter for WS.

Sacred Falls stands for $30,000 +GST, LFG in 2017.
