Global Stallion Management (GSM) might be less than two years old, but already the Australian-based company is bringing the Northern and Southern Hemisphere harness racing worlds closer together.

GSM was founded by Scott Robertson (New South Wales) and Gary Donaldson (Victoria) in 2010.

Robertson said the purpose of the company was to give fair and conscience stallion management to stallion owners and syndicates from both sides of the hemisphere.

"We initially secured the Southern Hemisphere rights to one of the world's leading trotting stallions - Angus Hall - and it all blossomed from there. We now have stars like the mighty Shark Gesture, Stonebridge Regal, Julius Caesar, and the exciting new son of Rocknroll Hanover - BGs Folly," 46-year-old Robertson told Harnesslink.

He said he was especially delighted that 6-year-old Angus Hall mare, Frenchfrysnvinegar won the $300,000 Breeders Crown Open Mares Trot Final at Woodbine in Ontario, Canada, last Saturday (October 29). See video below.

"It just reinforces his value at stud - and for $10,450 (including GST) we believe he is an absolute bargain, especially considering he is highly regarded the world over," Robertson said.

He said he wanted people to know that GSM was here for the long haul.

"I know some people might be skeptical after some studs have closed down in recent years but I want people to know we have quality stallions, quality racehorses and quality mares. Gary and I breed a few ourselves and he has been involved in the game all of his life, and I've been involved more than 20 years.

"You can't beat experience and you can't beat quality," Robertson said.

He said GSM facilitates both sides of the Tasman -currently standing Shark Gesture and Stonebridge Regal at Darryl Brown's Wai Eyre Farm in Christchurch - with semen for both sires freely available in both Australia and New Zealand.

"Shane Murphy's Mountain View stud at Ballarat, Victoria is also home to the very successful Colonial bred sire Julius Caesar as well as the recently retired BGs Folly, so as you can see we have got some really good stallions on offer - at very reasonable prices."

Such stallions include (prices inclusive of GST): Shark Gesture ($4,950); Stonebridge Regal ($3,850); Angus Hall ($10,450); BG's Folly ($2,500); Julius Caesar ($2,500); and Lawman ($1,900).

GSM Mission Statement:

'To place every stallion is to its maximum potential. Prudent placement, aggressive marketing means real numbers and happy owners'.
