BERTOLINI RETURNS TO OVERBURY STUD FOR 2009 5/11/08

Bertolini, the sire of a Group One-winning juvenile from his first crop, will return to Overbury Stud, where he started his stud career in 2002. The son of Danzig will stand at a fee of £4,000 (October 1, Special Live Foal) for the 2009 breeding season

Cheveley Park Stakes winner Donna Blini was the star of his first crop, which also includes dual Group Three winner Moorhouse Lad, whose superb efforts, which include finishing runner-up to Marchand d’Or in the G1 Prix de l’Abbaye, have earned him a Timeform rating of 123. From Bertolini's first three European crops, he sired 77 two-year-old winners – a feat bettered by only one other stallion. He is also the sire of Group winners Solvini, Medic Power and Juice from his time spent in New Zealand. Overbury Stud manager Simon Sweeting said: ‘We’re absolutely delighted to have Bertolini back here at Overbury where it all began. He’s a super horse with plenty of fans and he has a crop of very nice juveniles set to run for him next year.’ Bertolini will stand alongside two Champion milers, the Sussex Stakes winner Proclamation and Zafeen, who has his first runners in 2009. Proclamation has had his fee reduced for the forthcoming season, so both will stand at £3,000 (October 1, Special Live Foal). Also at Overbury Stud is Britain’s most exciting National Hunt stallion prospect Kayf Tara. His eldest runners are still only six but he has enjoyed a wonderful year with seven black-type performers to his name, including the highly promising Carruthers, Venalmar, Give It Time and Mad Max. Kayf Tara's fee for 2009 is £4,500 (October 1, Special Live Foal).
