First foal by Ducimus
Dick Vincent supported Ducimus when the stakes winning son of Snitzel arrived in WA last year and he was rewarded with the stallion’s first foal this week.
Vincent operates De Grey Park in Capel and his mare Miss Wild was the first to foal down off an early September cover. “She’s a magnificent filly,” Vincent said. “I’m a big admirer of Ducimus. I booked two mares to him last year. He’s a great specimen and he’s by Snitzel.”
Miss Wild is a daughter of Gingerbread Man and her filly (pictured) is bred on the same cross as this year’s G2 Karrakatta Plate I’m A Single Man.
Vincent is expecting another Ducimus foal later this month out of his well-bred mare Corn Flakes (Oratorio). “I go back way back with the family. I bred and sold Sweet Corn to Lee Freedman for $27,000 as a yearling and she ended up earning around $400,000.”
Ducimus was the most popular freshman sire with WA broodmare owners in 2019 and his service fee will remain unchanged at $2,750 (inc GST) payable on live foal this year.
He’s tremendous value in what will be his final season at that price. His 2021 fee will rise to $4,400 (inc GST) payable on a 45 day PPT.
Ducimus is Westspeed Platinum Nominated in 2020. Rivercrest Park stands him on behalf of Orbis Bloodstock Australia and studmaster Steve Hoare can be contacted for bookings or further information at 0409 987 970.
