Champagne Sire for Victoria (TBV)

Apr 22, 2016

Group 1 winning sire Onemorenomore has joined the Ridgeview Park roster in Victoria and will stand for an introductory service fee of $5,500 (inc gst).

His arrival continues a changing of the guard at the Muskerry East stud following the untimely deaths of Bianconi and Dr Doute’s earlier this year.

Owners Phil and Fiona Sloane signed up Al Samer (Redoute’s Choice) to their stallion roster last month and have continued that upgrade with Onemorenomore.

“We’re thrilled to buy a stallion of his quality for Victorian breeders,” Phil Sloane said.

“He’s still only a 9 year old and there are over 150 foals to come from his last three books at Vinery Stud.

“He’s a really attractive horse and stands over 16 hands. Vinery and other shareholders will retain their lifetime nominations in the stallion.”

Onemorenomore cost $800,000 at the 2008 Inglis Easter yearling sale and paid that back with interest winning the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) by four lengths ahead of Tickets and Manhattan Rain.

He is the only Group 1 winning 2YO by champion sire Red Ransom at stud in Australia and is a perfect outcross for Danehill-line mares.

Red Ransom’s top-class sprinter-miler Red Bomber became his sire’s 110th black-type winner in the Group 3 Shaftsbury Avenue Stakes (1400m) at Flemington last month. The Victorian bred gelding has earned over $600,000 following lucrative wins in the 2015 VOBIS Gold Sprint (1200m) and last Saturday’s VOBIS Gold Mile (1600m).

Onemorenomore was a Top 5 stallion on the Australian second-season winners’ premiership in 2014-15 and is now the leading Victorian based third-season stallion this season with 35 individual winners of $1.08 million.

In addition to his domestic statistics, there are numerous off-shore winners in Hong Kong and Singapore where his brilliant two year-olds Genius and Excellent One were placed in last year’s Group 2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe and Group 3 Juvenile Championship.

Onemorenomore’s first-crop filly Onemorezeta won the Group 3 Red Roses (1100m) at Flemington and there are several more black-type winners on the horizon.

Gilgai Farm’s homebred filly Alittle Loose is expected to race this long weekend in either the Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) at Morphettville or the Listed VRC St Leger (2800m) at Flemington on Monday.

In Queensland, his Doomben winner Lady No More has accepted for the Listed Princess Stakes (1600m) at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.

“Berisha (by Al Samer) won the Mornington Cup shortly after we signed Al Samer. Hopefully, Onemorenomore will now get a stakes winner, too!” Sloane said.
