Wylie Hall relatives take centre stage

20th Aug 2018

Cheveley Stud’s well bred young stallion Wylie Hall made news last week with both his relatives and offspring faring well all over the world.

Wylie Hall’s 3yo full-brother Silent Agenda broke his maiden in smart style when scoring at Kembla Grange racecourse on Saturday, while former champion Melody Belle, who hails from the same family as Wylie Hall, added further gloss to her impressive record when taking out the G2 Lisa Chittick Foxbridge Plate over 1200m at Te Rapa on Saturday.

Melody Belle, who, like Wylie Hall and Silent Agenda, traces back in female line to influential broodmare Belle Time , was picking up a fifth stakes win. The Commands daughter, New Zealand’s Champion 2YO of 2017, has now won six of 13 outings, with Melody Belle’s prior wins including the 2017 G1 Manawatu Sires Produce Stakes.

Other outstanding performers descended in female line from Belle Time include Australian champion Dance Hero, star sprinter Absolute Champion (a half-brother to Wylie Hall), and Oaks winners Eskimo Queen, Anamato (a ¾ sister to Wylie Hall) and Casey Belle.

Wylie Hall’s triple Australian champion sire Redoute’s Choice also enjoyed notable success recently when son Super Maxi (a 160th stakes winner for Redoute’s Choice) won the WATC Belmont Newmarket on Saturday.

First past the post in the 2014 G1 Vodacom Durban July, Wylie Hall himself made news at last week’s National Two Year Old Sale. His Lammerskraal Stud consigned daughter Wylie Wench was sold to Varsfontein Stud for R600 000 –making the Wylie Hall first crop daughter the third top lot sold off the 2018 National Two Year Old Sale!

Wylie Hall, who shares his sire with multiple Australian champion sire Snitzel, was a superb  athlete whose six wins included both the G1 Champions Challenge and G1 SA Derby.
