Emirates Park purchase Tassort to stand at Newgate
Emirates Park, in conjunction with Newgate Farm, have purchased the impeccably-bred, boom juvenile Tassort.
One of the most talented juveniles from the I Am Invincible sireline, and out of the Blue Hen mare Essaouira, Tassort won the Golden Gift in a record-breaking time, scorching the turf to win by 5.3L, and in doing so recording one of the highest-rated juvenile performances seen in season 2018/19.
In discussing the assets of Tassort, Emirates Park general manager Bryan Carlson observed: “Tassort is out of one of Australia’s great Blue Hen mares Essaouira, and from the dominant I Am Invincible sire line. The combination of his genetic excellence and untapped talent is the reason we purchased him.”
Carlson added: “We will be supporting Tassort heavily at stud with many of our quality mares.”
In making the news public, Newgate managing director Henry Field remarked: “When I first saw Tassort step out in the Golden Gift, he struck me as a 2YO with incredible talent, which was no surprise given the high regard he was held in by those that were closest to him.
“With the commitment of such a high volume of quality Emirates Park and Newgate mares, Tassort will receive a terrific opportunity at stud.”
Tassort will stand at Newgate for a fee of $11,000 including GST. Breeding rights are available.
