Duporth

Duporth

A Gr.1-winning son of Red Ransom, Duporth is from an exceptional black type family, being out of the eight time stakes-winning mare Staging, also the dam of the Gr.1 Sires’ Produce Stakes winner Excites and the Gr.2-winning, multiple Gr.1 placed Tickets, as well as the South African Champion 2YO Colt and dual Gr.1 winner Delago Deluxe being out of a half-sister to Duporth himself.

From 18 career starts, the colt only contested black type races, and although his breakthrough elite level score came in the Gr.1 BTC Cup (1200m), Duporth was also successful in the Gr.2 Golden Rose Stakes of his three-year-old season, with the race being elevated to Gr.1 level the following year.

The sire of seven stakes winners highlighted by Tony McEvoy’s consistent sprinter Hey Doc, the winner of the Australian Guineas, Manikato Stakes and the Winterbottom Stakes, all at Gr.1 level, Duporth will be an exciting addition to Aquis’ Queensland base at Canungra.

As the only Gr.1-winning sprinting son of Red Ransom to stand in Queensland, the Joint Top Australian 3YO in the Sprint Classification, Duporth’s appeal is extremely wide spread with winners in eight different countries including 13 winners from 14 runners in Hong Kong.

Extremely versatile as a sire with Gr.1 performing 2YOs through to Guineas-winning 3YOs, Duporth’s Danehill free pedigree will see him be an in demand stallion at a competitive fee.

Bellevue Hill

Bellevue Hill

Electrifying homebred-colt Bellevue Hill, the only Group-winning juvenile son of his Champion First and Season Season Sire Pierro went to stud in 2020.

Bellevue Hill was an exciting juvenile, winning by over five lengths on debut in the Black Opal Preview at Canberra in a time of 57.15 before finishing a half-length second to Yes Yes Yes in the record-breaking Gr.2 Todman Stakes after doing all the work up front and only be run down late, leaving Bivouac, Strasbourg and Time To Reign in his wake.

Recording a quicker time than his own sire Pierro achieved in his Todman Stakes win, Bellevue Hill went on to record a facile two length victory in the Gr.3 Schweppervescence Stakes over Strasbourg the following week. In the process, Bellevue Hill achieved a juvenile Timeform Rating of 116, a mark better or equal than the likes of what Bivouac, Cosmic Force, Yes Yes Yes, Trapeze Artist, The Autumn Sun and Astern also achieved at 2.

A son of Pierro, whose 23 stakes winners include six Gr.1 winners highlighted by fellow Aquis first season sire Pierata, Shadow Hero and Regal Power, Bellevue Hill is out of the speedy, 1000m winner Bellevue Girl, a full-sister to Exceed And Excel’s Gr.3 winner Sugar Babe from the family of dual Gr.2 winner On Type.

His first foals were outstanding and his pedigree is pure 2YO power!

 

Dubious

Dubious

The fastest ever winner of the Gr.3 Breeders’ Plate (1000m), achieving a time of 56.45, quicker than previous winners Capitalist, Vancouver, Pierro, Sebring, Snitzel and Choisir.

By the same sire as Aquis’ sensational Gr.1 Golden Slipper winner and Champion 2YO elect Farnan, Dubious’ mental toughness and sensational juvenile ability saw the colt finish second in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic of his year, just like his 14-time Gr.1 producing sire did.

Having commenced his juvenile campaign with a debut win in September, Dubious was still up in May, winning the Gr.2 Champagne Classic (1200m) at Doomben, a race won in the past by the exciting young, stakes-producing sire Brazen Beau, before finishing his 2YO campaign with a gutsy fifth, beaten a length and a half by the older horses in the Gr.1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) at weight for age.

From the extended family of Champions Sires Street Cry and Shamardal, who between then have sired just shy of 50 Gr.1 winners, highlighted by Champions Winx and Pinatubo respectively, the highly-credentialled Dubious will be the only son of the retired Not A Single Doubt to stand at stud in Queensland.

He covered a quality book of 274 mares in his two seasons at stud, starting his stud career in the same blistering fashion as he did on the track.
