17/9/2019 Stallion Oamaru Force dies

Victoria-based stallion Oamaru Force (Geiger Counter) has died at the age of 22, stud Noor Elaine Farm announced yesterday, just days before the running of The Shorts - a race he won in 2001. Then a Group 3 race, the victory was the highlight in six wins for the former David Hall-trained sprinter , who went on to sire three stakes winners. They are headed by Stradbroke Handicap (Gr 1, 1400m) winner Mid Summer Music and Group 2 winner Diplomatic Force from limited opportunities, with his biggest book of mares covered being 43 in 2007.
