Black Opal Winners in the News Again

Takedown’s win in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes in Perth in November makes him the third Black Opal Stakes winner from the past  five years to win a Group 1 race. The other two being Epaulette (2012) and Criterion (2013).

Another interesting highlight to Black Opal Stakes winners is that Lucky Raquie (2014) was sent to Japan in 2015 with a group of mares from Arrowfield Stud to be served by one of the world’s greatest sires Deep Impact (Jpn). Deep Impact stands for a stud fee of approximately $300,000 AUS. In September Lucky Raquie produced a bay colt by Deep Impact, one to watch out for in the 2018 yearling sales.
