As the conclusion of the breeding season swiftly approaches, owners find themselves at a crossroads, contemplating whether to continue exploring the possibility of a 2024 foal or give up for the season.

For decades, breeders have stood their ground on the commonly held belief that a foal’s early birthdate inherently provides a distinct advantage in the development of a racehorse, particularly at the age of two.

But history shows this not always to be the case and there might just be one sire to help get the job done.

Nature Strip, born on the 16th of November, is a prime example.

Revered as one of the most distinguished racehorses in history, he secured victory in an impressive nine Group 1 races and earned the prestigious title of two-time Australian Horse of the Year.

Conceived in early December, he went on to win 22 races from his 44 starts and earn more than $20 million in stakes.

Notably, his sire Niconni, also born in mid-November, resided at Widden Stud for a fee of just $17,600, including GST the year he was conceived.

The writing might just be on the wall here and Graff can get you there!
