2016 Fee: $5,500 inc GST
From limited opportunities, Pendragon, a stakes-winning son of Elnadim and earner of over $500,000, has had a standout 2015/2016 season, which included blacktype success with Think Big Stud homebred Miss Gunpowder, winner of the Group 2MRC Thousand Guineas Prelude, stakesplaced Dragon Flyer and consistent city winner, Killarney Kid.
Sire of 46 winners and earnings of over $3.7m worldwide, Pendragon has runners in stables of James Cummings, Chris Anderson and Phillip Stokes, to name a few.
Since Pendragon’s stud career began he has sired runners in Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand, who have become multiple winners. They have been successful at the metropolitan and provincial meetings and won in all track conditions across a range of distances. His best performers to date include multiple winners The Peak (7 wins, 3 stakesplaced), Abba (2 wins, 1 stakesplaced), Killarney Kid (9 wins) Blazing Dragon (5wins), Kurrajong Dragon (5 wins), Budderoo Dragon (5 wins) and Beaudragon (5 wins) and are off a service fee of $10,000 or less which makes Pendragon a very affordable choice to breed city class winners.
From his latest crop, Pendragon has produced recent two year old winner and Think Big Stud Ready2Race graduate, Mercurial Lad, for training partnership, Barbara Joseph and Paul Jones. We expect to see more promising horses break their maidens out of the James Cummings stable and other stables around the country in the near future.
Dato Tan Chin Nam has placed a lot of faith in Pendragon and is pleased with his achievements so far in his career. Pendragon has been going from strength to strength and it would be very hard to find a better value for money stallion at just $5,500 inc GST here in Australia this season. With his 92 career starters to date averaging $41,148 in prizemoney earnings, at Pendragon’s 2016 fee, the service fee to prizemoney return is possibly unmatched. This equates to over $7 of prizemoney for every $1 of service fee spent.
