Exciting Speedster For Stud

Exciting opportunity for breeders!

Ridgemont Highlands has announced that the blue-blooded speed machine Real Gone Kid will stand at Stud for the 2022 breeding season.

The handsome chestnut bears striking similarities to Ridgemont Highlands’ outstanding young sire Rafeef, with both Rafeef and Real Gone Kid being lightning-fast performers from the Redoute’s Choice male line.

A son of Redoute’s Choice’s greatest sire son, thus far, Snitzel – himself a four-time, consecutive Champion Sire in Australia and Leading Sire of 2YO’s in Australia on three occasions – has sired more than 120 world-wide stakes winners.

Hailing from a wonderful female line, Real Gone Kid is a son of Equus Champion, and Gr1 Cape Fillies Guineas and Gr1 Woolavington 2000 heroine, In The Fast Lane – a daughter of seven times South African champion sire Jet Master.

In what is seen as a very exciting opportunity, any breeder who sends a mare will incur no covering cost. If a breeder commits to sending a mare every year for four years they will receive a share of the horse which will entitle them to a further free service every year, plus any dividends that the stallion may earn thereafter.

An understandably delighted Craig Carey said: “Without a doubt Real Gone Kid has an international standard pedigree that wouldn’t be out of place in any stallion barn around the world. Access to a bloodline of this strength and quality is very exciting – Ridgemont Highlands are committing to send Real Gone Kid a minimum of twenty mares every year, for four years.”

    With only a few days before the eagerly awaited Hollywood Durban July, the impact of the current loadshedding on both tote and online betting is a scary prospect!
