Multiple world record holder and exceptional speed machine! There is no bitter taste in our mouths after the success of the SWEET LOU progeny at last year's Mixed Age Sale and the recent yearling sales!
We're thrilled with the reception of the Sweet Lou progeny. His first yearlings are starting to progress with their training and are showing plenty of promise! Top breakers and trainers have nothing but good things to say about natural gaits, attitude, temperament and willingness.
It is great to see that some of New Zealand's top trainers have purchased the Sweet Lou's. The likes of Tony Herlihy, Brent Mangos, Cran Dalgety, Nigel McGrath and Ray Green have snapped them up, this is a great recommendation for Sweet Lou. The reception his progeny received should give breeders great confidence in breeding to him. Here are some testominals from trainers:
“I’ve had two Sweet Lou’s that have broken in really nice, they’re athletic, light on their feet and a filly in particular might be the pick of the bunch so far.” -Nigel McGrath
“The Sweet Lou’s are probably one of the nicest of the up and comers we are doing at the moment. He’s been one of the standouts as far as new stallions, we’ve broken in probably six of them and they all broke in very well.Obviously the one out of Adore Me you would expect to break in good with her breeding, but we’ve broken in a few from the Yearling Sales and they have been hard to fault. Temperament, gait and good athleticism." - Stephen Boyd
"I’ve bought three Sweet Lou’s and I will be back to buy some more. They have all had great manners and gaits." - Greg Payne
“We have three Sweet Lou colts at home and the more I do with them the more I like them." - Ray Green
