Many of Australia's leading stud farms have thrown their support behind the inaugural Terang Harness Racing Club Stallion Tender. Alabar Bloodstock, who operate standardbred breeding establishments in Victoria, New Zealand and the Riverina, has offered a choice of three stallions in Armbro Operative, Elsu and Gotta Go Cullect.

Armbro Operative has twice been the leading sire in Australia, Elsu has progeny earnings of $4.4-million and Gotta Go Cullect is a royally-bred, young son of Christian Cullen.

Empire Stallions, who stand 10 stallions at their Avenel base, has offered a service to the world champion and Triple Crown winner Blissfull Hall, the sire of Breeders Crown winner Led Suitcase and emerging champion Bitobliss.

The Shepparton based Morley Park has donated a service to Cam's Card Shark's fastest ever son, Shadyshark Hanover, to the Stallion Tender. The conqueror of Roll With Joe and Big Jim, Shadyshark Hanover was America's fastest three-year-old last year.

Goodtime Lodge, conducted by well known Western District identities Ian and Judi Slater, has offered services to their two sires, Artesian and Browning Blue Chip. Artesian is the sire of the Vicbred champions David Hercules and Hexham Heartbeat, while Browning Blue Chip has left a NSW Sires Stake champion in Just A Blue Chip.

A service to the 2005 Little Brown Jug champion P Forty Seven, the sire of this year's Southern Cross winner Forty Seven Flash, has been donated by Mary-Helen Pearce's Eldarin Park, Pyramid Hill, north of Bendigo.

Concorde Park, owned by leviathan Perth breeder-owner Mick Lombardo, has put up a service to the Precious Bunny horse P B Bullville, who is standing his first season in Victoria after a very successful career in Queensland.

Services to two promising young sires in It Is I and the trotter Armbro Variable have been donated by leading stud farms in the Ballarat region in Mountain View Stud and Rosehill Farm respectively.

The Stallion Tender will close on September 4 at 9pm and tenders must be at least 70 percent of the advertised service fee.
