AWESOME ROCK (Fastnet Rock x Awesome Planet, by Giant’s Causeway) stood his first season at stud in 2017.
Awesome Rock earned over $2Million in prize money during his career, to become the highest earning son of Fastnet Rock in Australia. He would have won significantly more if not losing the Group 1 Australian Cup on objection to four-time Group 1 winner Preferment.
Awesome Rock is a magnificent individual who took on and beat the best on the racetrack.
His stunning win in the Group 1 Emirates-Mackinnon Stakes was against an international field that included eight Group 1 winners with French star Vadamos left in his wake along with Hauraki, The United States and Palentino.
This came after his brilliant win in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes at Moonee Valley over a class field that included star mares Jameka, Suavito, Set Square and Real Love.
Awesome Rock has been described as near perfect by Trainer Troy Corstens. “He is close to the perfect thoroughbred, a stunning athlete and such a physical type. If you look at the way the stallion market is trending towards stallions with that real physical presence, it really creates a fantastic opportunity for a horse like Awesome Rock.”
Goffs UK Managing Director, Tony Williams believes that Awesome Rock is “physically the equal of any stallion standing at stud. Being what I would call a proper physical type as a Yearling suggests he will reproduce that level of quality in his foals which will lend itself to the commercial market.”
Corstens believes that Awesome Rock is capable of leaving Classic performers, particularly future high class milers.
Champion Sire Fastnet Rock is quickly becoming the sire of sires and Awesome Rock offers WA breeders access to one of his best performed sons.
Gold Front will stand Awesome Rock for a fee of $8,000 (inclusive)
