FORMER OPEN class pacer Franco Ledger is available to southern breeders at Macca Lodge this coming season.
The horse’s owners, Hamish Hunter and the Whatever Syndicate, persuaded Brent McIntyre to look after the stud duties. There is no service fee.
Franco Ledger was retired after fracturing a pedal bone during last year’s Hannon Memorial at Oamaru. He had returned to Hamish’s Ryal Bush stable after racing in Australia, where he won the Group I Bohemia Crystal at Menangle and placed second in Arden Rooney’s Hunter Cup in Victoria in 2015.
Altogether the Falcon Seelster stallion won 25 races and $682,000 in stakes.
