Cangon Stud Secures Dubleo
Dubleo has been relocated from Vinery Stud to Cangon Stud at Dungog this season, a move designed to prolong the stallion's career as a prolific sire of winners. A son of More Than Ready's sire Southern Halo, Dubleo was imported to Australia after a successful race career in the US where he won six races as a juvenile. A proven turf performer, his career highlights included the Gr2 Summer Stakes at Woodbine and the Gr3 Generous Stakes at Hollywood Park, both run over 1600m on turf. Retiring to stud in 2005, Dubleo soon produced a horse of stakes quality when first crop daughter Dubleanny won three stakes races for Vinery Stud and trainer Mick Price. This success was soon followed by another daughter in Koonoomoo who won the Gr3 VRC Herald Sun Stakes at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day 2012. At Moonee Valley on Cox Plate day the following year precocious 2YO Silversands was another Dubleo filly to notch a feature race win on the big stage when taking the rich Inglis Banner over 1000m. With winners of over $8 million in prize money, Dubleo continues to produce winners frequently and in recent weeks has sired the Moonee Valley winner Radical and Rosehill winner Two Blue, who has since finished a close second in two listed races in Sydney. "We are extremely happy to get a horse of Dubleo's quality and he fits into our roster very well," Cangon Stud's Jock MacKay said. "He is the perfect horse for those breeders looking for an affordable breed to race option given his ability to get a stakes horse and produce winners at a regular rate." Dubleo will stand this season at a service fee of $4,400 inc GST.
