YIRRIBEE WEEKLY NEWS
Fear the Dragon tops JUG Yearling Sale
The North America Cup winner Fear The Dragon, whose frozen semen is available ‘down under’ from Yirribee Pacing Stud, Wagga (NSW), stole the show at the recent Ohio Selected Jug Sale.
Fear The Dragon sired the top priced colt, Springbridge Dragn at $120,000 and the leading filly, Dragon Lady, for $85,000. Both are members of his first crop.
Warrawee Needy, the second leading first-season sire in Australia, was represented by the tough Bathurst two-year-old winner Warrawee Drinking, who rated a career-best 1:58.1 in notching his second success.
The gelding was one of two recent Yirribee Stud-bred winners, the other being the three-year-old Eagles And Indians, a runaway winner in 1:54.9 at Wagga.
Renaissance Man, the former Group winning star who is standing at Yirribee Stud this season, left the two-year-old Mister Ridgewell (1:58.6), who posted his second win from only three starts at Pinjarra, and the ‘new’ three-year-old winner Trittrittbangbang (1:57.5, Bendigo).
Renaissance Man has sired 21 winners from 33 starters at an average of $18,600 per starter.
Only In America, a gelding by Shartin’s sire Tintin In America, kept the flag flying for his sire in New Zealand with a thrilling win in a new lifetime mark of 1:57 over 1980 metres at Addington.
The Little Brown Jug winner Million Dollar Cam continues to churn out the winners – in both hemispheres. Kyalla Mini Marg scored at her first appearance at Dubbo on Sunday, while Doc’s Ronhenry won in 1:56.2 in Canada.

Yirribee was established in 1985 by Rod Woodhouse and Ian Walsh, and was officially opened in 1986 by Darren Binskin and David Aitken.
Yirribee Pacing Stud has since grown to be one of the leaders in the Australian Standardbred breeding industry. Rod and Ian were business partners in an unrelated industry and shared a common interest as trainers and drivers. Ian retired from his interest in Yirribee in 2009 and sadly has since passed away after a long battle with illness.
Yirribee Pacing Stud is situated close to Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia and encompasses over 400 acres of rich alluvial river flats which is all under irrigation and has extensive frontage to the Murrumbidgee River.
The purchase of US stallion Jeremy Lobell to stand his first season in Australia in 1986 combined with the picturesque and fertile environment allowed Yirribee to establish itself very early as leader in the breeding industry. From very early on it has been considered by the Yirribee team that the very best of care combined with the best possible environment would a recipe for success.
