YIRRIBEE WEEKLY NEWS
Warrawee Needy top of the Mountain
Riverina youngster The Mountain is proving a great advertisement for the former world champion Warrawee Needy, who is now standing at Yirribee Pacing Stud, Wagga (NSW).
The Yirribee Stud-bred two-year-old gelding notched his third win from just four starts when he soundly trounced his opposition at Leeton last Tuesday (August 4).
Warrawee Needy, who was also represented by the Canadian winner Ajknight (1:58.8) recently, is the second leading first-season sire in Australia with nine individual winners from 14 starters.
Tintin In America’s champion daughter Shartin N captured her third consecutive Lady Liberty at Meadowlands, New Jersey on Saturday (August 8), leading for the last 1000 metres in the $177,100 mare’s feature and stopping the teletimer at 1:48.4. It was her 38th success from 45 starts in America and boosted her earnings to more than $US2.33 million.
Renaissance Man, who has joined the Yirribee stallion roster for the 2020/21 season, was represented by the two-year-old colt Artful Jack, an end to end winner in a career-best 1:57.8 at Newcastle, and the three-year-old colt Apologize, who scored twice at Globe Derby Park by a combined margin of 17 metres.
Not to be outdone, Million Dollar Cam led in winners at Dubbo with the two-year-old filly Southern Millions and at Redcliffe with Sword And Shield, one of three Yirribee Pacing Stud-bred winners for the week.
Snoop Stride, who posted win No. 24 at Albion Park on Friday (August 7) and The Mountain were the other two Yirribee-bred winners.

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.
