Schick excited about sire power for Karaka 2021

With 17 different sires represented in this years Windsor Parks Karaka Yearling Draft, the appropriate cliche “there is a horse for everyone” has never been more true.

With progeny by Savabeel, So You Think, Charm Spirit, Rip Van Winkle, Shamexpress, Impending, Russian Revolution, Caravaggio, Rubick, Churchill, Almanzor, All Too Hard, Deep Field, Time Test together with Mongolian Khan, Turn Me Loose and Vanbrugh Windsor Park certainly have a horse for every budget.

In recent times graduates born off the stud are Callisign Mav, Hindaam and Sansom meanwhile the stud has produced 46 INDIVIDUAL Group 1 winners and over 150 INDIVIDUAL stakeswinners. 

Stud master Rodney Schick commented “I am really excited about the draft this year, we have a smaller draft than we normally would but we do have a quality line of horses and to think of the sire power that is represented definitely brings that element of diversity through the draft. We have the exciting first season sires like Russian Revolution, Caravaggio and Almanzor right through to the proven champion sires Savabeel and our homebred Champion, So You Think.”

“We have sharp 2yo types, nice spring 3yo Classic types, Derby types, Oaks types and Cups horses, in addition, a few that would suit the Asian market.”

“A lot of people have commented to me that this is our best line of Charm Spirits, and to think his first crop are humming along with 5 group winners at a rate of 7.24%, it gives me great confidence going into the sale with his progeny."
