29-06-2022. Great to see a mainstream media story in today’s Hearld-Sun. Adam Dobbin reporting on Fernando’s 100 million stake earning progeny on Page 69. Let’s not forget about Barcia Bale’s contribution. What a dog 14 starts for 13 wins 12 in the Best of the night. $136,075 in stakes. His best win the 2012 Maturity Classic. However, as of August 2023 at Stud from 1439 litters and 9354 pups of which 7460 were named. His pups have won 36 thousand races, 55 thousand 2nd’s and 3rd’s. His progeny have won over 106 million in stake money. Win percentage 16% place 43%. GCA Sire of the Year 2017 and 2018 and runner up three times. A sire of sires here is but a few of his stars they are too numinous to list. Dyna Double One, Mystic Riot, Simon Told Helen, Aston Dee Bee, Shima Shine, Miss Ezmae, Jungle Deuce, Mepunga Blazer and Hooked On Scotch. Nice pic from the Maturity with Jan Wheeler and the late Paul. The win was G Bate’s fifth Maturity.
Here he is in action. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gwzRDoBH-g
