Following an outstanding response from breeders, Windsor Park Stud has closed the book to Deep Impact’s recently retired Group One-winning son Profondo.

“The Deep Impact sireline has been triumphant in Australian and New Zealand Group One two and three-year-old racing recently,” Windsor Park principal Rodney Schick said. “The interest in Profondo from breeders everywhere has been exceptional and he was quickly oversubscribed.”

Four-year-old entire Profondo will stand for $17,500 + GST in his first season and joins the stallion roster at Windsor Park alongside champion racehorse and leading New Zealand-based Australasian second-crop sire of stakes winners Turn Me Loose who will stand for $18,000 + GST in 2023. The progeny of Turn Me Loose sold for $500,000, $250,000 and $250,000 at the 2022 Ready To Run Sale at Karaka and among the numerous smart performers representing him this season are Australian Group Two-winning and Group One performed three-year-old filly (She’s) Licketysplit, Hong Kong-bound 2023 Gr.2 Waikato Guineas (2000m) winner Loosespender.

Champion European Miler Circus Maximus shuttles from Coolmore, Ireland for his third season at Windsor Park. The triple Group One-winning son of Galileo was the most popular stallion in 2021, serving 161 mares and his sizeable first crop of foals continue to impress with their development and conformation. Circus Maximus has had his service fee set at $17,500 + GST.

Encosta De Lago’s Group One-winning son Vanbrugh has enjoyed a breakthrough season with his first crops to race, which include this season’s Group One-winning four-year-old mare Mustang Valley and Group One performer Wild Night. Vanbrugh’s fee will be set at $10,000 + GST this coming breeding season.

Completing Windsor Park’s stallion roster for 2023 is successful sire ShamExpress. The Gr.oup One-winning sprinter is a consistent sire of black-type performers including multiple Group One winner Coventina Bay. The progeny of ShamExpress remain popular in the salering selling to $280,000 at the 2022 Ready To Run Sale at Karaka and his service fee will be $8,000 + GST.
