Stratosphere immediately impressed trainers Peter and Paul Snowden in his first campaign when he was aimed at the Golden Slipper and had his first run in the Gr. 3 Canonbury Stakes, one of the traditional lead up races to the Golden Slipper.

Peter and Paul Snowden had a huge opinion of Stratosphere and stated that they thought he was clearly their best 2YO that year.

He had precocious speed and untapped ability and showed that at his first start when running second even though he was very inexperienced. He was a genuine Gr. 1 horse and we felt he was the best 2YO we had that season.” Peter Snowden.

Stratosphere is an outstanding individual and was purchased at the 2017 Magic Millions for $925,000 by Newgate Farm & China Horse Club as part of their stallion syndicate – purchasing the best colts on the market.

Stratosphere has a stallion’s pedigree being out of the 2YO stakes winner Ultimate Fever and is also a full brother to stakes winners Sprightly Lass and Le Cordon Bleu.

Stratosphere has made an incredible start to his career at stud with a number of his progeny selling in excess of $100,000 in the sales ring and being purchased by some of the best judges in the Country. Stratosphere’s progeny averaged over $53k at the 2023 Tasmanian Yearling Sale with a 100% clearance rate demonstrating the huge demand for this Sire’s progeny.

On the track Stratosphere’s progeny have dominated the 2YO ranks in Tasmania this season with 7 individual winners and 3 stakes performers in his first crop headlined by the unbeaten Group 3 winning Greatham Boy.

Stratosphere’s progeny are intelligent horses, being very easy to educate and thus enabling them to get to the races as 2YO’s and win lucrative TasBred bonuses. (Offered on every 2YO Maiden race in Tasmania.)

Stratosphere had blistering speed himself and he is stamping his progeny with this early speed and precocity and upgrading those mares mated with him. It is very exciting to see just how good this stallion could be.

Following Stratosphere’s phenomenal start to his stud career interest from breeders both locally and interstate has been unprecedented and he will stand the 2023 Breeding Season at a fee of $7,700 incl GST – payable on a live foal.


2023 Service Fee $7,700 inc GST Payable within 30 days of live foal
