MORE than a decade after his death champion stallion Fake Left sired a pair of three-year-old winners at Albion Park yesterday.
Bred by Kevin and Kaye Seymour, the fillies appear to be set to continue Fake Left’s legacy for years to come.
Along with showing promise on the track, Saint Kilda Beach and Timeless Appeal have value as broodmares.
Trained and driven by Grant Dixon, Saint Kilda Beach stretched her record to five wins and seven placings from 16 starts by rating 1:56.8 over 1660 metres.
Rating 1:57.3 over the same distance, Timeless Appeal led throughout for trainer Chantal Turpin and driver Pete McMullen.
Owned by the Seymours, Timeless Appeal extended her tally to two wins and five placings from nine outings.
Fake Left stood at Egmont Park, which is owned by the Seymours.
“Unless there is some frozen semen from Fake Left which I don’t know about, they are his last two foals,” Kevin said. “It’s great to see him have two young winners going around.
“He’s enjoying great success as a broodmare sire, so maybe one day that will also continue with these two.”
Due to frozen semen a stallion siring stock well after his death is not unusual.
Alabar Bloodstock has a two-year-old filly In The Pocket which died in 2013.
Alabar’s laboratory manager Brian Rooister bred the filly “from lust one shot”.
Falcon Seelster died in 2011, with his semen still available through Stanardbred Trader or by clicking here.
