Gold Hoffa - Places at Mooney Valley on Debut!

Stud Comments

Bon Hoffa is a big, strong, sound horse with plenty of bone and natural muscle. He was an outstanding race horses and a winner of 9 races. As a young horse he won 4 in succession but it was in the spring of 2007 that he really started to shine.

After winning the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Qlty (beating subsequent Group 1 winners Swick and Divine Madonna) he went on to claim the biggest victory of his career, the GROUP 1 SIR RUPERT CLARKE STAKES! He had the ability to quicken from the back of the field defeating Group 1 winners Niconero, Wonderful World, Divine Madonna, Orange County, Anamato and Undue.

Bon Hoffa returned the following spring to once again claim the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Qlty and went ever so close to back to back Group 1 wins in the Sir Rubert Clarke Stakes, finishing 2nd. Bon Hoffa was retired to stud in 2009 a Group 1 winner with a total of $700,000 in prize money to his name.

Bon Hoffa is by Belong to Me who is the sire of 66 stakes winners. He has sire 10 individual Group 1 winners world wide including outstanding Sprinter All Silent!

Bon Hoffa is from the wonderful mare Asian Reef who has produced 3 stakes winners for 6 stakes wins. This includes the full-brother to Bon Hoffa who was a 2-year-old stakes winner and 3-year-old Group winner named Before Too Long. Bon Hoffa's Redoute's Choice half brother went to the bid of renowned bloodstock agent, James Bester at the 2010 Inglis Easter Sale for $1.2million.

He has been very well received in his first three seasons at stud covering 443 mares!
