Time is running out –just over a fortnight to go. If you want to have a chance to win a service to champion Australian juvenile pacer Poster Boy or World Champion Sweet Lou USA you have to purchase a ticket in the 2020 WASBA Stallion Service Raffle, closing on Wednesday 12 August 2020.

FIRST prize is the winner’s choice of one of these very exciting stallions. Both stallions are outstanding choices.

SECOND prize is a service to the remaining stallion after the first prize winner has made their choice.

THIRD and FOURTH prize winners each receive $1,000 service fee Vouchers, to be used on service fees for any stallion not fully booked at Northern Rivers Equine Victoria or Woodlands Stud NZ.

By world champion Somebeachsomewhere USA, one of North Americas greatest racehorses and sires, he is out of 2019 Australian Broodmare of the Year Aston Villa (Artsplace), winner of her first 3 race starts.
