Victorian thoroughbred nursery Chatswood Stud based at Seymour is the home of Victoria’s 2014-15 Champion First Season Sire of REWARD FOR EFFORT.

Visit the stud and behold the incredibly good looking stallion REWARD FOR EFFORT – a son of Champion Sire and World Champion 2yo Sire - EXCEED AND EXCEL.

REWARD FOR EFFORT’s oldest progeny have turned 3yo’s at the commencement of the 2015-16 Racing Season and he couldn’t be off to a better start as stud.

With big books of mares courtesy of an exceptionally competitive service fee of just $11,000, breeder’s flocked to the sire in each year he has been active in the breeding barn. That’s proved to be a wise decision.

REWARD FOR EFFORT was the Most Popular Sire in Victoria and a Top 10 Sire in Australia based statistically on the number of mares covered.

Based upon his incredible results, great physique, outstanding race career and excellent pedigree rolled into an outstanding value service fee, there seems little doubt that his 2015 book will be his biggest yet and the book full sign may be hung on his barn door such is his popularity.

REWARD FOR EFFORT was crowned CHAMPION First Season Sire in Victoria.

He was also Runner-up on the active First Season Sires List on the Australian Premiership to the Queensland sire ROTHESAY.

REWARD FOR EFFORT had 9 individual 2yo winners + another winner at Turffontein in South Africa as well as the Stakes-Placed Take Pride for his2014-15 First Season Sire’s resume.  

These results placed REWARD FOR EFFORT ahead of all the NSW based active First Season Sires for individual winners.

REWARD FOR EFFORT has gone on with the job since the start of the 3yo season, siring his first Stakes Winner GOLD SYMPHONY from the mare TZARESS (by Stravinsky) who won the Gr3 VAIN Stakes for trainer Peter Moody.

A brilliant racehorse, he was the 2009 Blue Diamond Winner at 2, an undefeated Weight-For-Age Winner at 3 and a Group Winner at 4.

He started in 10 races under our Dynamic Syndications ownership – 4 wins, 1 second, 1 third and
$937,200 in earnings.

only competed in Stakes Races during his 10 race career, which started in brilliant fashion with a win at 2 on debut in the MRC Blue Diamond Preview LR (1000m).

He followed up with a decisive win in the MRC Blue Diamond S Gr 1 (1200m), defeating subsequent Gr 1 winners Starspangledbanner and Rostova.

Undefeated weight-for-age winner at 3 in the Sir John Monash Stakes and ...

a Group winner at 4 in the Concorde Stakes.

REWARD FOR EFFORT is a 3/4 brother-in-blood to

Golden Slipper Winner - OVERREACH.
