Hendrik Winterbach Jnr reports that Gr1-winning sprinter Master Archie has proven to be fertile and it’s great news that two of the first mares he covered, a pair from Jikkie de Wet’s Prosper Stud, have both been tested in foal.
The Winterbach Stud-based son of Rafeef is enjoying his new job.
Hendrik Winterbach Jnr said, “He’s doing a proper, proper job. His libido is exceptional, he’s covering very strongly, he is ready for action.”
Master Archie has plenty more mares still to cover.
Meanwhile, his Potala Palace half-brother Majestic Palace makes his debut over 1200m at the Vaal today.
He is trained by Mike and Adam Azzie and will be ridden by JP van der Merwe.
