WA operation Rangeview Stud will stand the US Grade 1 winner Henny Hughes (Hennessy – Meadow Flyer, by Meadowlake) during the 2012 breeding season.
Henny Hughes has sired 111 individual winners from his racing crops, which includes six Stakes winners, for Darley before Rangeview Stud struck a deal to secure the stallion.
Henny Hughes has produced seven Australian winners in his first season. City winners Lil Red Corvette (Henny Hughes – Speedy Rossa, by Testa Rossa) and Hurricane Henny (Henny Hughes – Al Montahaa, by Sadler’s Wells) have served the sire well in the 2011/12 season.
Henny Hughes’s stock has performed well at various yearling sales around Australia with his yearlings fetching prices up to $210,000.
Rangeview Stud proprietors Rob and Jody Gray have set Henny Hughes’s 2012 fee at $7700, which is a drop on his previously scheduled fee of $11,000 at Darley.
“What really excites all who know quality and potential, is that Henny Hughes is actually already doing a great job at stud, getting winners all over the world and he’s only 9 years old,” the Grays said in a statement on the Rangeview Stud website.
“His reputation as a super type precedes him, and as said, he has already shown that he is passing that quality and presence on.”
Henny Hughes will join Key Business (Success Express – Business Babe, by Bletchingly) and So Secret (Danetime – Most Secret, by Bletchley Park) on the Rangeview roster.
