FBAA winners - April 2019

Federation of Bloodstock Agents Australia (FBAA) topped 60 wins in April with Bluegrass Bloodstock’s Lenny Russo and his clients welcoming 9 of them back to scale. 

The majority were sourced privately from New Zealand including Moss ‘N’ Bolt who was also bred by Russo in partnership with Kiwi studmaster Wayne Larsen.  The Castledale gelding has won his last two at Moe and Cranbourne and will be gunning for a hat-trick at Ballarat this Sunday. 

Moss ‘N’ Bolt is a younger brother to Moss ‘N’ Dale who has won 14 races and $1 million in prizemoney for Bluegrass clients topped by a Group 3 Craven Plate victory at Randwick earlier this season. 

Larsen has more younger brothers to the Bluegrass duo at Te Runga Stud which is located 50km south of Auckland.  Their dam Hot 'N' Moss (Strategic Image) has a 2yo colt and a colt on the ground by Castledale at his farm in Patumahoe. 

Federation of Bloodstock Agents Australia (FBAA) was formed in 1988 to maintain, improve and develop the standards, status and services of bloodstock agents throughout Australia.  Its members operate with the utmost integrity and professionalism and are bound by the strict Industry Code of Conduct.
