Additional Pedigree notes
ferocity-gallop_2 Ferocity comes from one of the most prepotent sire lines in Australia today. He is by the mighty LION HUNTER, a prolific son of Danehill, whose last yearlings graced the sales ring in 2006.
Lion Hunter finished the 2006 season by topping the Australian Leading Sires By Winners Table (133 winners) and at fifth on the Sires By Earnings Table with progeny earnings of $6,478,730. Lion Hunter is the sire of 2006/07Queensland Horse of the Year Gold Edition, who’s career earnings approached the $3.2 million mark, a true champion of Australian racing.
Oaklands Stud principal Neville Stewart was delighted to have acquired Ferocity with the help of Sheriff Iskander and other clients. Stewart regards Ferocity as the perfect substitute for his deceased sire, saying Ferocity carries all the necessary prerequisites to succeed in the stallion barn.
“Ferocity was an exceptional racehorse,” Stewart said. “He contested 10 races, six of which were stakes races, up to 1400 metres, finishing with three victories (Adelaide Magic Millions; G2, Ascot Vale Stakes; VRC Festive Season) and four placings including 3rd in the G2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, for track earnings of $656,500.” He collected prizemoney in no less than 80 percent of his outings. “There isn’t a doubt in my mind Ferocity will be just as good as his sire, perhaps even better,” Stewart added.
