Announced today that Glenlogan Park stud will no longer stand stallions commercially, with immediate effect.

Huge news for Qld, as Glenlogan has been the leading Qld stallion station for a decade or more.

An appalling indictment on the Qld breeding industry and the QTIS scheme in particular. Both are parlous.

The press blurb makes no sense at all. If the national scene is going from strength to strength, why would you be getting out of the stallion business? Especially in circumstances where just last season, you launched a new boy in Rich Enuff.

Rather than something Glenlogan's been angling at for some time, it's far more likely to be a drastic reaction to yet another stagnant March Magic Millions QTIS sale. It's been the only yearling sale in the country that hasn't been going gangbusters in recent years.

Not the first to walk away from the Qld industry, and won't be the last.

Do you remember 15 to 20 years ago they promoted themselves as being a farm for proven Australian racehorses ?

They used to take out full page advertising disparaging the shuttle stallions.

Did this ultimately backfire ?
