Overview

Sacred Falls

Four-time Group One winner
Leading First Season Sire at Karaka

Service fee $30,000+gst LFG

Unbeaten at two years and Champion New Zealand three-year-old of his year, Sacred Falls raced successfully against the best company over four seasons, winning nine races including four Group Ones.

His stellar performances at three were highlighted by an impressive win in the Doncaster Handicap Gr.1, New Zealand 2000 Guineas Gr.1, Hawkes Bay Guineas, Gr.2 and the James and Annie Sarten Memorial, Gr.3.

In Sydney with Chris Waller at three and four years he won the prestigious Doncaster Handicap Gr.1 and was the first colt in 50 years to win back to back Doncasters. He also showed his undoubted class by winning the weight-for-age George Main Stakes Gr.1.

Sacred Falls’ quality as a racehorse is measured by being the only horse ever to defeat Pierro in Sydney, defeating no fewer than 25 Group One winners during his seven stakes-race wins and, when retired, was the highest stakes winning NZ-bred stallion ever to go to stud in New Zealand with earnings of $4.7 million.

A 100 per cent homebred being by the Waikato Stud homebred Champion Sire O’Reilly, Sacred Falls boasts an impressive maternal pedigree being a daughter of the winning Redoute’s Choice mare Iguazu’s Girl from a family laden with group winning names such as Splashing Out, Shopaholic, Splurge, Omnicorp, Crimson, Pharostan and Vonusti.

Leaving youngsters that don’t look like they’re going to take long to get up and running, Sacred Falls’ first crop of yearlings exuded a quality that attracted many of the biggest buyers. Sacred Falls was the leading First Season Sire at the 2018 Karaka Yearling sale and across all Australasian yearling sales, his 55 individual lots grossed $6,109,780, sold for an average price of $111,086 and sold for up to $300,000, with six lots fetching more than $200,000.
