Telemon Thoroughbreds today paused to toast their Champion First Season sire SIDESTEP. The young son of EXCEED AND EXCEL added the honour to his title of Champion 2YO Colt of 2013 and joined an illustrious group.
Owning a multiple Group 1 winning filly is what dreams are made of. Couple that with purchasing a stud and standing a Golden Slipper producing stallion there in the first 12 months, and most reactions are simply ‘wow’. The owners are the Fletcher family and here is their story.
The record-breaking sprinter JUNGLE CAT will stand the upcoming Australian breeding season at Queensland’s Telemon Stud. The fastest son of IFFRAAJ will be offered in his first Southern Hemisphere season at an introductory fee of $12,000 (plus GST).
SIDESTEP, the sire of Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes winner KIAMICHI, will remain at Telemon Thoroughbreds in Queensland for the 2019 breeding season under an existing arrangement with Darley. SIDESTEP will stand at Telemon at a fee of $22,000 including GST in 2019 and be eligible for QTIS.
The team at Telemon Thoroughbreds is ecstatic with the Group 1 Longines Golden Slipper win by Godolphin filly KIAMICHI (Sidestep x Ouachita) today and what it means for her first season sire SIDESTEP and breeding opportunities in Queensland.
