⚠️ Brent would not necessarily endorse this post - preferring not to have himself talked up.
But the Macca Lodge studmaster was thrust into the spotlight when recognised with the Contribution to Southland Harness Racing Award on Tuesday.
Fear The Dragon is absolutely flying and his form continued with three winners on one of America’s most famous race days - Little Brown Jug day.
Firmly established in the top bracket of 2yo sires in North America, if you’re not breeding to Fear The Dragon this spring you’re missing out.
FEAR THE DRAGON — THE MACCA LODGE SIRE MADE A STUNNING START TO HIS CAREER BY TOPPING TWO OHIO SALES
Macca Lodge stallion Fear The Dragon has made an incredible start to his siring career in North America by topping two yearling sales.
The rookie sire produced the top priced yearling at both the Ohio Selected Jug and the Buckeye Classic Sale.
Fear The Dragon incredibly produced seven of the top eight lots at the Buckeye Classic Yearling Sale in Ohio.
Fear The Dragon has a wonderful attitude and a will to win all top horses need.
Some of his yearlings from the Buckeye Classic Yearling Sale are already showing those kind of traits, before they have even been properly broken in!
Check out this video of Fear The Dragon’s yearlings free-legged pacing.
And remember they have never worn hopples in their lives!
Fear The Dragon’s success at the Buckeye sale was headed by his colt from Allamerican Ingot mare, Soggy Britches.
The striking yearling topped the sale when selling for $100,000, which equates to more than 15 times his sire’s North American service fee.
The colt is a half brother to New Zealand sire, Johny Rock.
To say Fear The Dragon’s progeny were in hot demand at the Buckeye sale would be an understatement.
Bidders sent a clear message that they were desperate to get their hands on the stallion’s stock when Fear The Dragon yearlings filled seven of the top eight lots.
Earlier last month, a stunning colt from Mach Three mare, Stonebridge Damsel, beat out a huge line up when selling for a massive $US120,000 at the Ohio Selected Jug.
The colt, named Springbridge Dragn, was knocked down to one North America’s top trainers in Ron Burke.
Check out the classy Fear The Dragon youngster’s conformation and his brilliant way of moving in the video below.
Fear The Dragon’s progeny were in hot demand across the Ohio sale, with 33 lots selling at an average of $US26,700.
Other highlights include a Fear The Dragon filly from Sportswriter mare, Dancin Caroll, selling for $US85,000.
A Fear The Dragon colt from Art Major mare, Eagle Yankee, sold for the big price of US$57,000.
Another Fear The Dragon colt from Camluck mare, Twin B Diva, also sold well, fetching US$56,000.
The strong selling of Fear The Dragon’s yearlings in the first public offering is an outstanding result for the stallion and encouraging news for any New Zealand breeders who have sent their mares to him.
It also opens up an exciting opportunity for owners of Art Major, Sportswriter and Mach Three mares following the high prices Fear The Dragon yearlings from those dam-sires sold for.
Fear The Dragon’s sale topper sold for the equivalent of more than $177,000 New Zealand dollars on today’s exchange rate.
That equates to more than 34 times the price Fear The Dragon is available for ($4500 + GST) through Macca Lodge!!

RAGING BULL — AN EXCITING ADDITION TO THE
MACCA LODGE STALLION TEAM
Macca Lodge is delighted to announce quality sire Raging Bull will join its stallion roster in the 2020-21 breeding season.
Proprietors Brent and Sheree McIntyre secured the royally bred son of Christian Cullen with one thing in mind – to give breeders precisely what they have been asking for – an affordable stallion that can produce top-line horses.
Raging Bull will stand at the highly competitive fee of $2000+gst in his debut season at Macca Lodge.
“We are excited to have him here because he can leave really nice foals,” Brent said.
“He has left some good horses, so breeders are going to get real bang for their buck at $2000.”
One of Raging Bull’s biggest attractions is that his pedigree offers breeders the best of both worlds.
His bloodlines mix arguably New Zealand’s biggest superstar racehorse and sire in Christian Cullen with a proven blueblood North American mare in San Sophia.
By siring great and champion racehorse Artsplace, San Sophia has been an incredible producer, with eight foals of her foals winning more than 70 races.
