Ferocity to stand at Oaklands

Queensland studmaster Neville Stewart's search for a stallion replacement for Lion Hunter has ended with the acquisition of Ferocity, the former leading stallion's best-performed son.

With the Backing of Stewart's clients and a Lion Hunter connection through Sherrif Iskander, Ferocity has been syndicated to stand at Oaklands Stud, Toowoomba, next Spring with a fee to be set.

Oaklands is home to Last Tycoon's explosive son Iglesia, Thunder Gulch's fast son Tsuimai, Nureyev horse Pure Theatre, and to Aucash, a Danehill half-brother to Saintly. It is also closely related to God's Own.

Lion Hunter was a major loss to the Queensland industry after his blazing start, with dual Group 1 and Magic Millions Classic winner Lovely Jubly in his first crop.

In his short stud career he produced 189 winners from 320 starters.

Ferocity won the $400,000 Magic Millions Adelaide Classic (1200m) at Morphettville in February but the run that put him in the above-average sprinting bracket was the Group II VRC Ascot Vale Stakes (1200m) at Flemington in September, when Fashions Afield was among those trying to catch him.
