Emirates Park and Clear Mountain Fairview have entered in to an arrangement that will see Al Samer continue his promising stud career in Queensland.
A dual Stakes winning son of Redoute’s Choice and proven as a sire of Black Type winning progeny, Al Samer was initially retired to Emirates Park Victoria where the quality grandson of Danehill (USA) has made an accomplished start to his stud career.
With just four crops of racing age, Al Samer is already the sire of close on 90 individual winners, the stallion’s most notable progeny including Victorian Stakes winners Mr Chard (VRC Carbine Club S.-G3), Underestimation (VRC ANZAC Day S.-LR) and Le Remas (MRC John Dillion S.-LR).
Al Samer’s deeds prompted Clear Mountain Fairview principal Bob Frappell to enquiry about the young stallion’s availability and the coming season will now see this very well-credentialed sire based in Greenmount on the Darling Downs.
The current Horse Research, Development (R&D) Program is now at the cross-roads, and will likely cease unless something is done to secure ongoing funding.
Without the support of the Thoroughbred breeding industry there are insufficient funds to maintain the current Horse R&D Program, which has been managed by the Rural Industries Research & Development Corporation (RIRDC) for more than 25 years.
Attached is an official notice of a levy ballot to be conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC).
In mid-July all Thoroughbred contact breeders registered with the Australian Stud Book (ASB) will receive a ballot paper to measure support for the proposed Thoroughbred R&D Levy package, which is:
• A charge of $10 per mare covered per season and paid by the stallion owner, and
• A charge of $10 per mare returned per season and paid by the broodmare owner.
The levy will be added to current administrative fees and compulsorily collected by the ASB with a proposed commencement date of 1 August 2014.
Over the past two months Thoroughbred Breeders Australia (TBA) has presented the levy proposal to Thoroughbred breeders in each state and has sought feedback. Pleasingly there has been strong support expressed with most breeders agreeing the levy proposal is fair and reasonable, affordable and administratively practical to collect, hence our decision to proceed with a levy ballot as required under the Australian Government’s Levy Principles and Guidelines.
The TBA Board strongly urges breeders to support the levy proposal in the forthcoming levy ballot, given that the success of the Thoroughbred industry in Australia depends heavily on research and development.
