Welcome to

Clarke & Croft Bloodstock

"RAISED AT ALTITUDE"

Why fly to New Zealand when you can have all the benefits here in NSW.  Clean fresh air and automatic altitude training at your back door (for bigger lungs and better oxygen conversion).  The property is located near the highest city in Australia and is ideal for the raising of horses as there is little to no risk of ticks, bats, itches, mosquitoes, sand colic etc, as well as no neighbouring mines.  The added benefit is these horses are bred to be tough; having to deal with extreme season changes, and some harder ground creating better bone density.  No short cuts are taken in their raising, care and nutrition.  Horses receive two well balanced hard feeds a day, customised for the individual.  Babies are rugged from the moment they can stand and all horses are rugged through out the colder months.  Personal care and attention to detail is what sets Clarke & Croft Bloodstock apart.

Foxwedge/Sorcha Rose Colt. Speed machine. Powerful, explosive, strong, good bone, very short canons, long forearms, big shoulder, long hip - a true 2yo sprinting type. Stands over ground and has a very long galloping stride to match. Eats the house down, works like a trooper, tough as nails - a trainers (and owners) dream. Bred on the proven Fastnet/Stravinsky cross. From just 60 daughters in Australia, Stravinsky currently (Jan 2017) sits eighth on the broodmare sires list. No need to worry about the Dam not racing as a 2yo - she was catalogued for both MM January and Easter, had a recurring stifle issue and was literally bushed; however still managing to win 7 times. Hopefully her speedy potential can now be fulfilled through her progeny. No such troubles with this fellow; x-rayed and scoped, all looking good. Larynx size rating of 4.5 (very good). NB. Two pedigree updates: Dam now half to two stakes horses; 3yo Disturbance (who has won his last two starts) and the promising 2yo Oscar Eight - a page on the move....

Helmet/Dibella Colt. Beautifully conformed, perfectly balanced, light footed, effortlessly fluent; this fellow could gallop all day long; a real athlete. Clean winded with a larynx size rating of 4.5 (very good). This is the type of horse to consider if you are wanting to win a Derby, Doncaster, Cox, etc, etc. He is willing, kind, smart, and eager to please - very trainable. The Dam is a great type (see our Broodmare page), true to Lohnro, with Marscay blood and is a half sister to sprinting Gr1 winner Barkada. We have high hopes for the mare and pray this colt will go on to achieve great things. X-rayed and scoped well, ready for sale!
