BLUE DIAMOND WINNER RETIRED TO STUD

Tagaloa was always a likely candidate for retirement after the conclusion of his three year old season once Yulong investment bought a significant stake in the colt after his Blue Diamond win.

Tagaloa has had a mixed Autumn carnival with his racing career coming to an end after finishing less than 2 lengths off Kolding in this Saturdays Group 1 All Aged Stakes at Randwick.

During his racing career Tagaloa totalled 13 starts which resulted in 3 wins and over $1.4m in prize money for the training team of Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young.


Although Tagaloa has seen the end of his days on the track, Yulong Investments are very excited to see the 3 year old enter their catalogue. COO Sam Fairgray in particular cited the colt's Japanese blood lines as a point of interest for buyers.

“It’s very interesting him coming to stud because the whole Japanese blood thing has got breeders intrigued,” Fairgray recently told the Herald Sun.

“It’s great for the Australian industry to be able to introduce these bloodlines.”

Fairgray also called out the fact that Tagaloa was open up to breeding with much more of the Australian stock as a result he has not lines to racing Legend Danehill.

“He’s Danehill free so he can match with any of those type of mares,” Fairgray said.

“All those lovely Redoute’s Choice, Fastnet Rock, Snitzel and Not A Single Doubt mares, all those can easily be mated.”

Yulong investments will be announcing Tagaloa’s breeding price later this week alongside the likes of Grunt, Yulong Prince and Written Tycoon.
