Pegasus Spur is a sire that plies his trade with little fuss!

A gun trotting sire, his impact runs very deep. Pegasus Spur is a sire of immense speed and stamina, as reflected in his journey as a sire. Did you know he is sire of Australasia’s fastest male and female trotters! His Elitloppet bound daughter Maori Time is a 1.51.5 is the fastest ‘down under’ female in history and multiple Group 1 winner Flying Isa is the fastest male of all time ‘down under’.

At the age of 20, Pegasus Spur still commands high respect as a sire. His ace son Speeding Spur was a multiple Group 1 winner in recent months, amongst those victories was the time-honoured Rowe Cup. The 3200-metre feature is on all owners wish lists and Pegasus Spur’s son delivered in spades, he now has over $880,000 on his CV. Pegasus Spur is the sire of a plethora of $100,000 + earners, these include Paramount Gee Gee, Wilma’s Mate, Monty Python, Sarah Palin, Cool Coober, Rare Opportunity and Unico Pegasus.

At this years Australasian Premier trotting sale, held in Melbourne, he averaged $AU 34,000. This was a fantastic result on a service fee of $2640! Breeders and sales purchasers understand that Pegasus Spur is still a relevant sire in these times of frozen semen. He is stallion that gets results on and off the race track!
