David Mourad (Racing Manager) Comments: Lot 125 Easter Inglis Sale. Really nice Shamus Award colt, what a stallion Shamus Award is. Just have a look at his list of Group 1 winners, he certainly can produce a damn good horse and we love this colt. He’s medium sized and I think he will be a miler type. Might get over a bit further. Shamus does have a bit of stamina in his off spring, but well put together. Lovely big hind quarter on him, he’s got a good action and very light on his feet. Athletic colt.
Mick Price (Trainer) Comments: Lot 125 From Sydney Inglis Easter Sale. Good colts, good fillies come out of this sale. He’s by SHAMUS AWARD under rated stallion: INCENTIVISE, DUAIS and Group 1 horses like MR QUICKIE, EL PATRONISE. What more could you want from a stallion.? He’s an amazing sire with a great page out of an MORE THAN READY mare, out of a fast mare. He looks like he is going to have a nice turn of foot, medium sized colt. He is also Super Vobis, Vobis Gold. I mean, he’s just a horse that’s got everything. He is a very good mover, great drive from behind, good boned horse and a real colt. We love him and think he’s a gorgeous colt. GO AND TAKE A SHARE IN HIM!!
The Sire: SHAMUS AWARD
The spectacular rise of SHAMUS AWARD as an elite sire of Group One Winners has been nothing short of phenomenal. Champion son of Snitzel.
Within just the last two years, Shamus Award has produced four individual Group One winners including WFA superstars INCENTIVISE & DUAIS and a further nine Group or Listed winners ranging from 1000m-2400m.
Further highlighting his ability at siring the elite of the elite is a recent Arion study placing him in the Top 5 current Australian based sires by percentage of Group One Winners per runner.
Not only has SHAMUS AWARD established himself as the dominant son of champion sire Snitzel. Statistically he’s now amongst the best sires in Australia. In fact, his 6.75% SW/R’s ratio is superior to the likes of SO YOU THINK, DUNDEEL, TORONADO, STREET BOSS, WRITTEN TYCOON, BRAZEN BEAU, NICCONI, STAR WITNESS etc.
Importantly, at the 2023 yearling sales it is worth noting SHAMUS AWARD produced a 6.5 x return on service fee – more than the likes of the very best stallions such as I AM INVINCIBLE, SNITZEL, ZOUSTAR, EXCEED AND EXCEL, SO YOU THINK, PIERRO, WRITTEN TYCOON & DUNDEEL.
