Pacific Fella died of a massive heart attack during his first semen collection after arriving in New Zealand. This is a big setback for Steve Clement's Brisbane Pastoral harness racing stallion operation in it's first month in business.

Steve said "we had a well balanced lineup with a proven Cam Fella stallion and an exiting new Direct Scooter line stallion."

"Pacific Fellas bookings were exceptionally strong with over 100 mares already committed, it's a shame as it's too late for us to get another stallion to partner Rob Roy Mattgregor an very well bred son of Champion Sire Matt's Scooter out of a 3/4 sister to Western Ideal. We are committed to the industry and are excited by its future and will add both to our stallion strength and to numbers of mares bred in the next couple of seasons.

"We are delighted to have Danny Boyle now working with us, his knowledge of the industry,his integrity and reputation as a pedigree consultant are unmatched",said Clements.

Pacific Fella's is a big loss to the breeding industry. He is the sire of 2 Breeders Crown winners, Artistic Fella (1:48f & & $2.6m) standing with Empire stallions & No Pan Intended (p3,1:50.6 $1.6m). In Aust from small crops Pacific Fella has left: Ima Spicey Lombo(m) 1:55.1 & $484,000, Ruby Dazzler(m) (1;57.6 & $351,000), Schinzig Buller (1:56.1 & $288,000), That's Mister Ali (1:55.8 & $233,000) , Mendelico(m) (1:56.1 & $188,000) , Lady Belladonna(m) (1:58.4 & $153,000).
