With the Magic Millions QTIS Sale just around the corner and the Queensland breeding community set to come together, the market has been seeking some clarity as to the future plans for Champion First Season Sire 2018/19 SIDESTEP. In great news, Darley Stallions and Telemon Thoroughbreds have announced that SIDESTEP will continue to stand in Queensland.
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.
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.
One of Queensland’s most prominent thoroughbred breeding properties is set to re-launch as Telemon Thoroughbreds in June when the lease to current occupant Sun Stud expires. Since it was first developed in the 1990’s, Telemon has earned an enviable reputation.
