Quality doesn't cost....it pays! 

Crownstad (AUS)
1998 ASB W20 Chestnut mare in foal to Moonlark

Crownstad is a beautiful quality mare with ability and scope.  Not only is she a multiple racewinner, she brought home the win or place cheque six times in 12 starts. She also won her barrier trial just before her last race start that ended her career (injury).  Her chrome comes from her broodmare sire Crown Jester - also the sire of the well noted Rory's Jester.  She is by a tremendous son of Kaapstad (NZ).  Kaapstad himself is a half brother to Octagonal and Cohetele House - dam of Danewin and Commands.  Her sire, Simonstad (NZ) a multiple Group and Stakes winning stallion with stats of 25 Starts. 6-6-3 $AUS320,770 in Australia, Hong Kong. A fabulous result and amount of money over 20 years ago.  He would be a multiple millionaire winner in todays economy.   

Simonstad (NZ) has proven himself as a quality broodmare sire, being the broodmare sire of the Group winning filly Myamira who has won nearly $300,000 to date.  She is a homebred for the Newton family and the fourth foal for the three times winning Simonstad (NZ) mare, Simmysue. Second and third in the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes were daughters of Redoute's Choice out of top-class racemares (eg Divine Madonna).    Although Simonstad (NZ) not a current "flavour of the month" commercial sire, he was a top quality horse and produced quality offspring that could run.  There is an upside to this and that is "a non commercial pricetag!"  This mare Crownstad is at a buyers price.  You won't go broke chasing winners with this girl! 

A lot of mares at an entry level price have just one standout progeny and with Crownstad only been lightly bred, I do beleive her best is yet to come.   She was the only foal from her dam so a bountiful catalogue pedigree was not attainable and again makes her more affordable and a very exciting value for money mare.
