Lovatsville are delighted to have secured freshman Snitzel speedster, Generation, to stand at stud this season, providing Victorian breeders with an opportunity to breed to that colonial speed option so often presented in the Hunter Valley. 

Generation’s journey to stud was made a long time ago. His dam, Fontiton, was a pre-Christmas stakes winning 2 year-old and the “talk” horse leading into the Blue Diamond series, where she duly captured both the Fillies Preview and Prelude. While the Diamond wasn’t to be, her obvious speed, her good looks and the potential upside was well found when she was bought for $1,100,000 by SF Bloodstock at the 2016 Magic Millions. 

Fontiton’s second of only two foals, the first being the ill-fated but black-type performed Pinkham, was Generation. A $575,000 Magic Millions purchase for Ciaron Maher & Dermott Farrington on behalf of their respective clients, Colin McKenna and his syndicate and Canning Downs, Generation pleased Maher from day one. "It's one thing for them to look the part, but they’ve got to be able to handle the whole process and the transition into stable life to ensure that they can do it on the track.” Maher’s assessment of Generation against that theory? “He was completely bomb-proof from day one.”

An undefeated city winning 2 year-old, dual Group 3 winning 3 year-old sprinter who was also Group 1 fourth in both the Moir and the William Reid. Generation’s on track deeds certainly matched physique, outstanding looks and precocious pedigree, all of which were key factors in Lovatsville securing him. 

“We loved the fact that he was by Snitzel. A 4-time Champion stallion and sales ring goliath, who is now emerging as a sire-of-sires. In our minds he’s got the pedigree, he’s got the performance and he certainly has the looks and the physique. It mirror the profile of the Vinnie’s and Tassort’s in their formative years at stud. He is certainly worth a punt” says Sam White, Lovatsville founder. 

“He’s not a big horse but he has immense quality, great strength and a beautiful bit of sprinting scope to him. Physically I think breeders will enjoy mating to him, in that we will be able to add quality to some mares and tighten up some bigger, rangier styles that would genetically complement him too.”

Generation will stand the 2024 breeding season at a fee of $11,000 (incl. GST) with extremely attractive breeding right packages available in him, providing great opportunity for broodmare farms and agents to utilise a pool of nominations for their clients.
