30 Apr Musk Creek Farm Visit
ACJC Members First Taste as Breeder
In late April, a group of proud ACJC “parents” paid a visit to their first baby at Musk Creek Farm.
A special breeding exercise made possible by the generous support of Adam Sangster of Swettenham Stud who loan us a Zabeel mare, Gallata, free of charge, 20 of our ACJC members enjoyed the taste of being a breeder. We decided that we want to breed a stayer, so we sent Gallata to the great Melbounrne Cup winning stallion – Americain 2 years ago – this resulted in a very nice filly who is now a rising 2 year old.
The playful filly looks well balanced, surely destined to be a racer and do her parents proud when she hits the track. With such high hope we picked a fine trainer, Hayes Hayes and Dabernig for her and named her “AeeCee Dolce”, which is Australian Chinese + Dolce, a girl’s name of Italian origin meaning sweet.
