Rios



THE FLAME HAS BEEN IGNITED


Gr.1 Producer already...





The Guineas races at three have long been a rich source of future champion sires. Redoute's Choice, Lonhro, Saddler's Wells and Zabeel were Guineas winners. Good company for Rios to keep.

Rios


WITH HIS HANDSOME LOOKS, GUINEAS WINNING RACE RECORD, ELITE BLOODLINES AND UNBELIEVABLE TEMPERAMENT, RIOS HAS ALWAYS COMMANDED RESPECT.

Through the deeds of his progeny, this respect has become increasingly international, particularly with respect to his tried stock.
50% of RIOS’ named colts end up in racing in Asia and more often than not, have sold for 6-figure sums to be there.

Providing a perfect Hong Kong platform, RIOS’ G1 winning son GAULTIER (now called Simply Invincible) and landmark first ever winner Happy Place, have both left winning impressions on Sha Tin.

Remarkably, despite his limited opportunity, RIOS has achieved winners across Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand.

All told, RIOS has had 10 winners from 16 starters (62.5% winners-to-runners), with the best of these being the G1 Levin Classic winner GAULTIER.

Extending this 62.5% winners-to-runners ratio, 70% of his 3YOs are winners.
With 6% black-type winners-to-runners being the benchmark for any commercial stallion, RIOS’ ratio of 6.3% G1 winners-to-runners, shows just how prepotent he can be.

Such prepotency is explained by his elite sire pedigree.

RIOS is by the world renowned sire HUSSONET and is out of the blue hen mare GUSSY GODIVA.

GUSSY GODIVA was awarded New Zealand’s Broodmare of the Year title, following the AJC Derby winning deeds of RIOS’ noted half-brother ROMAN EMPEROR. This is the international G1 family of BLACK MAMBA, GLORIOUS DAYS, TULLY THUNDER and SANDERAE.

As if an impeccable NZ distaff and a DANEHILL / DANZIG free pedigree isn’t enough, RIOS boasts the same MR PROSPECTOR / LAST TYCOON cross as G1 galloper SLUMDOGMILLIONAIRE and Japanese sire sensation KING KAMEHAMEHA.

In Waikato Stud's mix, it is important to have a horse for everyone, and we feel RIOS is that horse.

Rios stands for $4000 +GST, LFG in 2017.
