Westbury Park stallion My Admiration is well equipped to take over and lead the booming Encosta de Lago sireline in Western Australia.

There are 63 two year-olds in his first crop from a near-perfect fertility-rate.

Encosta De Lago took off with Northern Meteor and the next wave includes Manhattan Rain, Zoustar, Rubick, Delago Deluxe and My Admiration who arrived in WA following an outstanding career in Hong Kong.

“He was a top class sprinter-miler,” studmaster Phil Ibbotson said.  “Darren Beadman reckoned he was capable of winning Group 1 races in Australia.”

My Admiration is out of a three-quarter sister to Wandjina and is bred on the Encosta / Danehill cross as champion sprinter Chautauqua.

He initially stood alongside Lucky Unicorn (Redoute’s Choice), He’s A Decoy (In The Wings) and Smug (El Prado) at Westbury Park but is now a stand-alone stallion at the Pinjarra stud.
