Floral Pegasus

Overview

Australian born and bred, Floral Pegasus (Fusaichi Pegasus x Crown Crest [Mill Reef]) 2002 Chestnut 16 HH will stand at Wyndholm Park in 2014. We are thrilled to be able to offer Victorian breeders a stallion that satisfies extensive criteria. Floral Pegasus showed immeasurable finishing power. His racing courage displayed a devout competitive edge and will to win. He will satisfy a criterion for breeders looking for an outcross from Danehill – in fact, Danehill line mares are considered a supreme match to Floral Pegasus along with a wide variety of broodmare sires from Dehere and Red Ransom to Royal Academy and sons thereof. Breeders can rest assured they are also receiving a pedigree that can perform over sprint to middle distance on turf. An Australian born and bred he was a $500k Easter graduate and proved his tenacity by being able to remain an entire and dominate racing at an elite level in Hong Kong. He gained a cult following there after proving he could beat some of the world’s greatest in the likes of Silent Witness and Good Ba Ba. His Group 3 win over 1400m was in world record time of 1:20:06 beating Silent Witness

The snap shot of Floral Pegasus is this:
    •    Group 1, 2, 3 winner
    •    Sprint to middle distance – (1200m – 1800m)
    •    He raced on turf and could handle all track conditions
    •    2nd placed 3 times at Group 1 level
    •    Placed 3 times at Group 2 level
    •    His Group 3 win over 1400m was in world record time of 1:20:06 beating Silent Witness
    •    Career earnings of AUD $3,391,145 – more than any other son by Fusaichi Pegasus
    •    Australian born and bred ($500,000 Easter yearling graduate)

His dam by Mill Reef (14 starts for 12 wins and 2 seconds) is a full sister to two Group 1 winning successful stallions in Europe It’s no coincidence this horse was a champion and is now a stallion   His breeding is nothing short of equine royalty, being by the tough and consistent Mr Prospector out of a dam by Mill Reef. Mill Reef is something of an enigma having raced 14 times for 12 wins and 2 second placings. He won a Group 1 at 2 years of age over 1400m, then as a 3 year old he won the Group 1 Epsom Derby over a mile and a half, then the Sandown Eclipse Stakes, the Ascot King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes. Over to France for the Gr1 Longchamp Prix Ganay and finally, as the jewel in his crown – he captured the Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe over 2400m at Longchamps. His two seconds are worth mentioning – the Gr1 Two Thousand Guineas and in France & the Group One Maisons-Laffitte Prix Robert Papin. Floral Pegasus offers incredible breeding strength through his female lines with his dam Crown Crest being a full sister to two multiple Group 1 winning sires successfully standing at stud in Europe.
