"Showed enormous amount of natural ability in his debut outing. Strong, precious type, typical of Exceed 2yo speed." – James McDonald, Jockey
Furnaces ticks all the boxes for sire success with an exemplary bloodline and proven track performance. The brilliant Gr3-winning juvenile is the direct progeny of emerging sire of sires Exceed And Excel and boasts three brilliant wins over 1100m.
A homebred for Darley, Furnaces was the early favourite for the 2016 Golden Slipper following a scintillating pre-Christmas debut victory winning by over six lengths highlighting his precocity and abundant natural speed. An explosive winner of the Gr3 ATC Kindergarten Stakes, Furnaces was second to Golden Slipper winner Vancouver in the Gr2 ATC Todman Stakes and third to champion sprinter Chautauqua in the Gr2 MVRC Ian McEwen Stakes in his first start as a three-year-old.
Furnaces continued his scorching run on the racetrack having won the Hawkesbury RC XXXX Gold Rush in track-record time. Although winning narrowly he shaved more than half a second off the track record to beat the older sprinters he was racing against.
Retired lightly raced with three brilliant wins at 1100 metres, Furnaces’ stunning pedigree combines the blood of Australian breeding luminaries Danhill, Star Kingdom and Sir Tristram.
Along with Furnaces, Exceed And Excel’s progeny includes promising sires Helmet, Reward For Effort and Excelebration. His female family features multiple Gr1 winner Melito, this season’s star two-year-old colt Pariah and the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale top lot, a Snitzel colt from Secluded that achieved $2.5 million.
Furnaces is standing at Aquis Farm’s Queensland property in Canungra for $9,900 (incl GST) with a Live Foal Guarantee. Stallion service fees for the 2017 breeding season are not due until March 2019. One of three first season stallions standing at Aquis Farm this season, Furnaces, is eligible for the Aquis Breeder Bonus Scheme giving breeders access to additional prizemoney of up to $200,000, dramatically increasing the attractiveness of his progeny for buyers.
