Broodmare's breeding status:

In foal:No
Selling with a foal at foot:No

Ruapehu is a big, rangy raw boned mare and stands at 16.3HH. She has proved to be easy to get in foal each time she is served. She produces a decent foal, correct and strong.

Ruapehu is easy to handle and catch, be it for the dentist, farrier or vet work.

She has been bred on the reasonably successful Danehill/Quest For Fame cross which has produced a good average of stakes winners to runners. Flying Spur as a brood mare sire has averaged $14M stakes earnings for the last 3 years, with stakes winners being produced across a number of sires. A highly desirable brood mare sire.
