Arrowfield’s John Messara says, “We understand the challenges faced by breeders operating in the current marketplace, and have made only one small fee increase this year, for our brilliant young sire Snitzel .”

“However, as a result of recent developments in NSW and Australian racing we look forward to increased participation in our sport by a wider audience.”

The six Arrowfield stallions with runners continue to produce formidable results on the track with 31 stakes winners to date this season, including a Group-winning trio on Derby Day at Randwick: Master of Design (the 21st Group 1 winner by Redoute’s Choice), Full of Spirit ( Flying Spur ‘s 85th stakes winner) and Dances on Stars (Snitzel’s 7th stakes winner and eighth 2YO stakes performer in 2011/12).
