Welcome to Phoebe Standardbreds and Sheep Studs
Originally founded in 1994 at our “Home” in Cheviot, Phoebe Stud is now based in Broadfield. We have however still retained some of our original Cheviot property. Horses, sheep and some cattle are run between both properties . All stock thrive in a predominantly hot dry climate with plenty of scope!!
Stallions standing at stud
We have been giving our website a major overhaul with a new provider...the plan is now to get back into the routine of regular updates, especially with the stallions progeny and our own racing team. Last seasons tally of wins was again down abit from a couple of seasons ago. Again a reflection of some of the established horses retiring and also probably it also makes us realise just how good the 2 previous seasons were. However plenty of newly qualified runners about to hit the track and really looking forward to seeing both Phoebe Imperial and Phoebe Onyx go on with it this time in!!
From a sires point of view...exciting times!! Imperial Counts small first crop continues to astound us, he is leaving sound,tough horses that thrive on racing and that you would just love to own!!....Two $100k peformers now from just the nine live foals(now 5yrs)
Royal Aspirations small test crop of 4 will make an impact as 2yr olds.....3 of the 4 are expected to race at 2, with the one not showing quite as much as the top three being out of a pacing mare by Sokys Atom!!
Locharburn is creating some interest...remember as a young horse he was very very good..."heart" will take him along way!!!
Exciting times as Royal Aspirations 2yr olds make their first appearance at Trials. Royal Pride and Royal Del ran one two at Rangiora last week. Both look exciting prospects, very strong!! Early days but did all that was asked on a very wet track!!
Expect to see his only filly at trials in next week or two....remember he only has 4 in this small test crop, so very exciting times for Royal Aspirations!!
Pete's Said So won again at Penrith (see video above), while Phoebe Onyx ran a rather unlucky 3rd at Addington as he builds to Cup Week....he will line up again in a Junior Drivers race at Oamaru this week.
