Sire – Headwater


Stallion video

Headwater is the young sire that ticks all the boxes! He’s bred for pure speed being by a Gr.1 Newmarket Hcp winner, out of a Gr.1 Oakleigh Plate winner. 

Headwater had early 2yo speed, winning on debut in December of his juvenile year before going on to win the Gr.2 Silver Slipper as a 2yo. He was then one of only a few to go on as a 3yo and defeat older horses at Stakes level inc. subsequent Gr.1 winner The Quarterback when victorious in the Kensington Stakes, a sprint down the Flemington straight.

Headwater wins the VRC Kensington Stakes 

Headwater’s first 2yo’s have made an immediate impact on the track. He’s already sired Group 3 winner WISDOM OF WATER and Stakes placegetter Be Water My Friend. They join his 10 first crop winners and have helped him join the Top 10 Australian Sires by 2yo winners and the Top 3 First Season Sires by winners, wins, and Stakes wins.
