Rubick head shot

Fast Start for Rubick

We’ve had just 18 days of the Australian racing this season and Rubick has made a particularly fast start with a flurry of smart winners.

A blue-blooded son of Encosta de Lago, Rubick has flown the gates posting five winners from 16 runners, a statistic that has him at the top of the second season sires list and is sure to excite the many breeders with mares booked to him this spring.

Rubick was the busiest sire in Australia last year covering 263 mares at a fee of $17,600 and has had a fee increase to $38,500 for this spring off the back of his impressive results last season with his first crop runners including Group II winner Yes Yes Yes plus five further stakes horses and another seven metropolitan winners.

Encosta de Lago was an amazing stallion for Coolmore for many years and while Rubick has a very long way to go to fill those shoes, he’s certainly giving it his best shot.
