Graff’s first scan’s positive!
For any first season sire the first day of pregnancy scans can be nerve wracking and with Graff’s first scan’s positive today, it a was a sigh of relief for us at Kitchwin Hills and Graff’s supporters!
One of the more exciting positive scans of the morning was Group 1 winner Scarlett Lady! She was purchased by Whitby Bloodstock for just $25,000 at the 2009 New Zealand Karaka Sale from the draft of Waikato Stud. On the track she amassed over $600k in earnings and became only the second filly to ever win the Doomben Roses G3 and G1 Queensland Oaks double (along with Ethereal (NZ).
It’s an exciting time for breeders as the next generation of champions are making their way into the world.
With 35 foals and counting, below is just a taste of some of the quality stock already born at Kitchwin Hills in 2021.
