Savilla Hanover

Always B Miki is one of the most exciting stallion prospects to stand in the Southern Hemisphere in recent years.

Besides being one of the greatest racehorses of all time, he also possesses a pedigree that will enable him to match up successfully with many mares by our top stallions.

Being out of an Artsplace mare, Always B Miki matches up really well with Abercrombie mares. So look for him to cross well with mares by such stallions as Art Major, Sportswriter, Grinfromeartoear, Perfect Art, Artiscape, Astreos, Modern Art, Albert Albert, Life Sign, Dream Away, Pacific Rocket, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, Panorama, etc.

Art Major and Sportswriter mares look particularly interesting given the presence of Big Towner in their pedigree.

Always B Miki possesses no Cam Fella blood in his pedigree whatsoever, so he will be able to be easily matched up with mares by sires such as Bettors Delight, Fake Left, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Washington VC, Precious Bunny, Four Starzzz Shark, Blissfull Hall, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.

Direct Scooter line mares have worked well with a variety of Western Hanover line stallions and this is certainly the case with Western Ideal and his sons Rocknroll Hanover and American Ideal.

Downunder Direct Scooter line stallions include Christian Cullen, Mach Three, Somebeachsomewhere, Courage Under Fire, In The Pocket, Stoneridge Scooter, Ok Bye, Deal Direct, Direct Flight, etc.

In recent times the doubling up of No Nukes has become more prevalent and produced some very good horses.

No Nukes line stallions include Live Or Die, Badlands Hanover, Safely Kept, Village Jasper, Jereme’s Jet, Caprock, Ticket To Heaven, etc.

Always B Miki contains multiple crosses of Big Towner and it is worth noting that duplicated Big Towner through a sire and a dam has produced very positive results.

So mares containing Big Towner could very well be a good option for Always B Miki.
Illavabubbles continued her brilliant run of form with another win at Menangle, this time in sub 1:50.
Outstanding Always B Miki three year old Cold Chisel collected his first Group 1 trophy when taking out the Northern Derby at Alexandra Park on Friday night.
Cold Chisel led an Always B Miki metropolitan meeting treble across Australia and New Zealand last night.

  • His 2022 Southern Hemisphere yearlings sold for $180,000, $150,000, $105,000, $100,000, $100,000, etc

Always B Miki is one of the most exciting stallion prospects to stand in the Southern Hemisphere in recent years.

Besides being one of the greatest racehorses of all time, he also possesses a pedigree that will enable him to match up successfully with many mares by our top stallions.

Being out of an Artsplace mare, Always B Miki matches up really well with Abercrombie mares. So look for him to cross well with mares by such stallions as Art Major, Sportswriter, Grinfromeartoear, Perfect Art, Artiscape, Astreos, Modern Art, Albert Albert, Life Sign, Dream Away, Pacific Rocket, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, Panorama, etc.

Art Major and Sportswriter mares look particularly interesting given the presence of Big Towner in their pedigree.

Always B Miki possesses no Cam Fella blood in his pedigree whatsoever, so he will be able to be easily matched up with mares by sires such as Bettors Delight, Fake Left, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Washington VC, Precious Bunny, Four Starzzz Shark, Blissfull Hall, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.

Direct Scooter line mares have worked well with a variety of Western Hanover line stallions and this is certainly the case with Western Ideal and his sons Rocknroll Hanover and American Ideal.

Downunder Direct Scooter line stallions include Christian Cullen, Mach Three, Somebeachsomewhere, Courage Under Fire, In The Pocket, Stoneridge Scooter, Ok Bye, Deal Direct, Direct Flight, etc.

In recent times the doubling up of No Nukes has become more prevalent and produced some very good horses.

No Nukes line stallions include Live Or Die, Badlands Hanover, Safely Kept, Village Jasper, Jereme’s Jet, Caprock, Ticket To Heaven, etc.

Always B Miki contains multiple crosses of Big Towner and it is worth noting that duplicated Big Towner through a sire and a dam has produced very positive results.

So mares containing Big Towner could very well be a good option for Always B Miki.
Illavabubbles continued her brilliant run of form with another win at Menangle, this time in sub 1:50.
