Goldin Farms and Swettenham Stud are pleased to announce that Akeed Mofeed (Dubawi), a rising star of Australia’s stallion ranks, will relocate to Nagambie to join the Swettenham Stud roster for the 2019 season.
Raced and owned by prominent businessman Mr Pan Sutong, Akeed Mofeed won the BMW Hong Kong Derby and the Longines Hong Kong Cup at four and the Centenary Vase at five, along with a Listed Race in Ireland at three.
The historic Lindsay Park property in Angaston, South Australia was purchased by Mr Pan’s Goldin Farms where Akeed Mofeed has covered 338 mares in his first five seasons at stud.
“Lindsay Park was purchased for Akeed Mofeed and he will always have a home at the property. His first season 2yo runners were more precocious and successful than we could have imagined from only 60 live foals,” said Andrew Perryman, General Manager of Goldin Farms. “We anticipate a steep rise in Akeed Mofeed’s visibility and popularity as those horses reach their optimal racing age. Having regard to Victoria’s broodmare pool, stallion availabilities and access to VOBIS, we see it as a positive and progressive move for Akeed Mofeed to be available to breeders in Victoria for the 2019 season.”
“Swettenham Stud is ecstatic about the opportunity to stand Akeed Mofeed,” Swettenham’s principal, Adam Sangster said. “He really is a stallion with a huge amount of upside — he was third only to Zoustar and Spirit of Boom in percentage of winners to runners last season when his first 2yo runners hit the track. As the only Dubawi stallion in Australia and as already evidenced on racetracks, his progeny will furnish into much better horses at three and four. It is a wonderful opportunity for us and for Victorian breeders.”
Akeed Mofeed currently has 40% winners to runners for the season including the Lindsay Park trained Poised To Strike, the Team Hawkes trained Heart Conquered (Track Record - 1000m Kensington) and Sunset Watch (G3 placed, 3 wins from 6), and the Phillip Stokes trained Assertive Play (undefeated at 2yo).
With 11 of Akeed Mofeed’s yearlings available at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale and 17 of his yearlings available at the Magic Millions Adelaide Sale next month, his progeny are certain to attract plenty of attention from trainers and astute judges.
Akeed Mofeed will be available for inspection at Swettenham Stud from mid-March and will stand for $16,500 inc GST.
