Champion trotting stallion joins Llowalong Farms

2 July 2021

Woodlands Stud’s globetrotting square gaiter Speeding Spur will join the impressive and deep stallion roster at Victoria’s Llowalong Farms formerly known as Northern Rivers Equine for the 2021/22 season.

Speeding Spur brings an extraordinary race career across four countries and two hemispheres including Group 1 wins in Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Speeding Spur

A career of outstanding achievement underpins the Woodlands Stud bred and raised millionaire’s  racetrack performances.

A winner at 2YO through to winning as an 8YO in the United States, Speeding Spur took no prisoners on his way to making over $1.3 million on the racetrack.

Speeding Spur won a staggering ‘Nine’ Group One races, including a Victorian Derby, Breeders Crown, The Great Southern Star and the time-honoured Rowe Cup.

No trotting stallion bred ‘Down Under’ can claim to have such serious stamina, a stunning desire to win and beat up so many great names on the racetrack.

Speeding Spur stands his second season at stud this season, following a great start in Australia and New Zealand in 2020.

Speeding Spur is highly fertile and presents a great opportunity for breeders to breed to a stallion that they watched race and with the additional benefit of fresh and not frozen semen!

It is also a great option for local Victorian breeders to support a stallion whose progeny will race for a $12,000 bonus!

Woodlands Stud continues its outstanding relationship with the newly rebranded Llowalong Farms formerly Northern Rivers Equine, who are the future of standardbred breeding in Victoria.

Speeding Spur’s service fee will be $3300 GST INC in Australia and $2,500 + GST in New Zealand, with normal discounts applying.

Speeding Spur is clearly the stallion, the trotting brethren have been looking for in Australia.
