Alta Broodmares

Alta Orlandos 3-day old brother by Mach ThreeWe have raced some of the standardbred mares ourselves and retained them for breeding with confidence based on intimate knowledge of their most favourable characteristics – gait, speed, pedigree, temperament, and above all race record. All focused on leaving a high percentage of winning foals.

A considerable amount of study and care goes into the choice of stallion for mating with our mares. After checking (where we can) on size, conformation, we shortlist those with a superior record in the breeding shed or on the racetrack. We check the pedigree match before a final decision is made, and then we expect the best.

Foaling for 2016 is completed with an excellent result of 4 colts and 1 filly for Alta Breeding.

Here are our current stock of broodmares:

Alchemist p3, 1:56.4, $351,805, 16 wins, 16 places
by Mach Three/Alcheringa (Dream Away)

Alchemist raced in the best company in New Zealand and Western Australia recording many memorable wins including the WASBA Breeders Stakes (G.3). She has presented us with a nice filly by Art Major and has just been served by Bettor’s Delight.

by Art Major/Natal Franco (Badlands Hanover)

A good racemare, Princess Arts has been retired to stud from the racetrack with an excellent racing record. Princess Arts produced a very correct colt by Somebeachsomewhere which at this early stage is destined for the 2017 Sales. She has been served by Mach Three replicating a breeding cross which has been successful for us in the past (i.e. Mach Three over broodmares by sons of Artsplace – see Alchemist & Alta Intrigue).
