Standing at stud - Flightpath $1650

The brilliant Flightpath will be standing at stud at St Fort in the 2016 stud season.

Flightpath had 40 starts for 12 wins, including the 2010 Australasian Breeders' Crown 2yo Colts and Geldings final.  He won $291,563 in stakes with a best mile rate of 1:55.9.

By the inimitable Artsplace, Flightpath is from Stature's outstanding daughter Express Post.  Her lifetime stats of 18 starts, 11 wins and 4 places for $89,483 in stakes fails utterly to describe the impact of Express Post.

In addition to Flightpath, she produced two other foals, Petousa (34 starts, 19 wins $180,217) and For Dear Life (28 starts 14 wins $322,330).

Some of the more than 40 winners Flightpath has sired include Alphitonia, Tulhurst Sarsha, Flytomo, Quagmire and Flight Express (all winners of more than $50,000).

Flightpath is owned by Wayne Honan, the son of the legendary late Jack Honan, who Tony worked for in the 1970s. 

"Wayne made the call that Flightpath's racing days were over and I'm excited he offered me the chance to stand him at stud," Tony said.

"He is a magnificent-looking horse and can't be faulted in any way," he said.

"I'm actually handling a Flightpath yearling at the moment and it's beautifully-gaited with a perfect temperament and that's a common story people who have the youngsters are telling.

"Just recently five of his progeny won within a week and another three have popped up at Parkes and Globe Derby in the past few days."

Studmaster duties are nothing new to Tony, who has, in the past offered noted sires at stud including Armbro Oliver, Chairmanoftheboard, Oil Burner and Stature

St Fort is offering Flightpath services at $1650 (with free return) and breeders have already been showing solid interest.  Bookings can be made by contacting Tony.
