Sooboog

Sire: Snitzel
Dam: Monte Rosa
Wins: Winner of the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap down the Flemington Straight.
Service Fee: $13,200

"Sooboog could rattle off sectional times that absolutely blew you away. If astounding speed is a key ingredient in making successful stallions I can assure breeders, that box is 1oo per cent ticked."

– Darren Weir

"He has the same highly-heritable qualities of great physique and raw speed that I Am Invincible took to stud."

– James Bester

"Sooboog's stock really grabbed me throughout the sales series, they walk with purpose and have great substance, they just have that look! I've had a few through already and couldn't be happier, will certainly be using him with a mare or two myself this season!"

– Gerald Ryan

"One first season sire who left an indelible impression on me from the yearling sales was Sooboog. Strong, sharp sprinters with a great walk. I think he could be a sneaky value sire to come through the ranks!"

– Johnny McKeever

"… he was certainly right up there with some of the better two year olds I’ve trained."

– John Hawkes

"A sign of quality for me is going to a sale & buying a yearling by a stallion I didn't intend on purchasing. That was Sooboog for me, he had 4 or 5 on the list that I really liked they just impressed me. Sooboog's a young stallion that I give a genuine chance! "

– Henry Field

There is no question, Australian racing revolves around precocious speed and commercial breeders wishing to tap into the market should look no further than Group 3-winning sprinter Sooboog, who represents outstanding value. He boasts a sublime pedigree, as a son of record-breaking sire sensation Snitzel, who is arguably the world’s leading source of two-year-old talent, and is a brother to Group 1 VRC Lightning Stakes winner Snitzerland. Sooboog’s $1.5 million price tag gives a clear indication that he has the looks to match his exemplary pedigree.

Entering his fifth season at stud, Sooboog has gained serious momentum covering big books of mares over his first four seasons, 152 in 2017, 178 in 2018, 93 in 2019 & 98 in 2020. The support he has received from breeders gives him every opportunity on the track!

The reception his yearlings received through the sales ring averaging over 7 times his service fee, rewarded the support breeders threw behind him in the early days with the quality of mare sent to a stallion of his price point, including the dam of Oohood, whom produced Sooboog’s first winner in Jessica Rabbit for Annabel Neasham! More important than any price points he could of realised in the sales ring, is the stables which they have joined:

*Ciaron Maher & David Eustace

*Mick Price & Michael Kent jnr

*Gerald Ryan

*Team Hawkes

*Peter & Paul Snowden

* Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott

The list goes on… Sooboog has his best stock spread through all the major stables in the country!

As the first season sires title race in 2019/2020 has again shown, sometimes the most explosive outcomes for breeders arrive via the less obvious pathways.

With Sooboog’s early 2 year old’s now hitting the track, he boasts 9 individual winners (11 wins) from a humble 26 runners, including stakes-placed Birdsville on the big stage at Flemington. Leaving him positioned Top 3 on the first season sires list by winners. With Sooboog’s stock consistently trialling well and showing the ability that he himself showed early on the track, it’s certainly an exciting time to for breeders to be involved with arguably the best valued son of Snitzel at stud.
