Sessions is the Group 2 winning sire of Champion racehorse and sire Lonhro.
Standing at 16.1 hands, he is an outstanding looking individual from a brilliant family. Sessions was a colt of the highest quality and from the classy Canny Lad stakes winning mare Seances, herself a half-sister to arguably Darley Stud’s best ever filly Unwordly.
Peter Snowden speaking after his first win said, “We thought he was our best two year old when he trialled first at Canterbury, but he pulled up with a hairline fracture afterwards”.
After that delay to his racing career, he went on to win 5 races, including a Group 2 victory in the prestigious AJC Shorts over 1100m and a close up third in the Group 1 MVRC Manikato Stakes to the mighty Buffering, and placings in the Group 1 AJC Galaxy, Group 2 VRC Gilgai and Group 2 AJC Concorde stakes. He amassed over $550,000 in stakes money.
His sire Lonhro was a Champion 3YO of his year in 2001-02, Australian horse of the year in 2003-14 and in the same year was Joint Top of the World Rankings over a mile in 2014.
Lonhro won 26 races, 11 at Group 1 level. He won $5,790,510 in prize money. At stud he has won the Australasian Leading sire title in 2010-11, leading Australian 2YO sire in 2011-2012, leading Australian 3YO sire in 2010-2011, leading Australian sire by winners 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.
As of May 2017 he has 714 individual winners giving him an incredible 71% winners to runners’ ratio. His progeny has won in excess of $83 million, including 66 individual stakes winners and 59 individual stakes placed horses.
Sessions joins Pierro, Denman, Exoshere, Benfica and O’Lonhro as sons of Lonhro at stud.
Sessions being out of the stakes winning Canny Lad mare Seances, is an ideal mating for Northern Dancer line mares including Danetime, Blackfriars, Danehill Express, Bletchley Park, Oratorio and will also work well with Metal Storm and Viscount mares.
He will stand the 2017 breeding season at $7,700. Please call Neville Duncan on 0417 200 097.
