Tyreel Stud

published: 17 Mar 2015 in Inglis Easter 2015 - Vendors

TYREEL Stud has a rich and proud history at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling sales. For decades Tyreel has been represented by high quality bluebloods at Easter, and they have gone on to translate their strong pedigrees and looks into high class performances on racetracks all over the world.

The 2015 sale heralds the beginning of a new chapter for the drafts from Tyreel. This is the first year Linda and Laurence Monds are at the helm of this boutique breeding operation during the southern hemisphere’s most important yearling sale. 

The stud’s change of ownership has already seen some inevitable directional changes including a re-branding at the illustrious farm. While those cosmetic changes are important, Linda Monds believes what is most valuable to its image and credibility in the thoroughbred industry is Tyreel’s proven history of breeding Golden Slipper winners and sales toppers. Linda is determined to continue that record and has made it a top priority to improve the stud’s broodmare band. 

“The farm has seen the arrival of a new young broodmare band, and we are continuing to welcome new owners to join them and take advantage of this exceptional property and its success,” she said. 

So far this year Tyreel raised or consigned horses have put up some outstanding racecourse performances. In fact, 20% of the horses offered by Tyreel during the past three years are now performing at black type level across Australasia and South Africa. This brilliant strike rate would be the envy of any major farm in the world. A number of Tyreel horses that are worth keeping an eye on include; Tashbeeh, Tahni Dancer, Ondina and Holy Cow and there are many more from this Agnes Banks property who are being prepared by some of Australia’s leading trainers for the autumn racing carnival. 

Linda believes this positive trend will continue with Tyreel’s 2015 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale draft bringing together an “exciting blend of blueblood genetics that has produced the finest of physical specimens the thoroughbred breed has to offer.” 

Tyreel opens its account with Lot 204, a stunning chestnut filly by More Than Ready out of stakes placed Flying Spur daughter Star Mystic. This eye-catching filly is bred on the same cross as Sebring, and her athletic physique strongly resembles that of her sire. From the family of Alverta, Aerobatics and Revolte, this family has continued to produce consistent quality performers. 

Moving on, from one outstanding filly to another (Lot 220) by More Than Ready. This youngster is from the Redoute’s Choice mare Tahni Girl, a Gr.3 winner and Magic Night-Gr.2 runner-up, with earnings of almost $400,000. She has produced a strong and imposing filly who possesses many of the best attributes of these two champion sires, and of course she is bred on the successful More Than Ready/Danehill cross. This filly is already a sister to three black type performers including Gr.3 winner Maschino. The most recent is Tahni Dancer (Sebring), a filly bred on very similar lines to great success. 

Lot 248 is an attractive filly by the ill-fated but extremely exciting sire Northern Meteor from city winner Western Princess (Western Symphony). The dam has already produced precocious two year-old The Huntress (Husson), a Listed winner and Gr.3 placed filly, and five other winners including stakes placed Lord Fuji. This filly, from the final crop of her sire, is one of a select few left for public auction by a stallion who has continued to upgrade his mares. 

The first of the colts from the draft will not let the fillies take all the limelight. Lot 346 is a Redoute’s Choice colt out of leading NZ two year-old filly of 2006-07 in Crossyourheart (Show a Heart) and with all the very best traits of his champion sire. He’s an athletic walking colt who maintains a great presence. He is out of one of the fastest juveniles of her year in New Zealand who was a multiple stakes winner. This family, whose members include HK champ All Thrills Too and Crossyourheart’s Gr.3-winning brother Gotta Have Heart, has continued to produce exceptional performers, and with the powerful update of Turnbull Stakes-Gr.1 (2000m) winner Lucia Valentina in recent months it is a family on the up. 

Well worth waiting for in Session Two at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale is Lot 585, a bay colt by the champion international racehorse and now exciting sire So You Think from US 900m juvenile winner Passageway (USA) (Gold Fever). This colt has impressed all who have seen him and, like many by his sire, has the look and walk of a supreme athlete. 

His second dam, a sister to Pancho Villa and Terlingua (dam of Storm Cat and Chapel of Dreams) is by the great Secretariat, and his third dam Gr.3 winner Crimson Saint, left seven winners including champion Royal Academy. This family has great potential, and with the promising San Sierra (Encosta de Lago-Passageway) already set to perform well for his dam, the colt could be “the one” to wait for. 

Linda is excited about her first foray into the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale and believes Tyreel’s five entries will help continue the well-deserved reputation of the stud. “I am really looking forward to our first Easter sale, and I know that we have the right quality stock to make our debut a great success.” 

20% of the horses offered by Tyreel during the past three years are now performing at black type level across Australasia and South Africa.
