Redefining breeding in India
Hazara Stud Farm which is located at Ambala in Haryana has made a big splash on Indian racing in the last few years. The Stud Farm overtook the established stud farms by winning the Champion Stud Farm award given by the Turf Authorities of India two years ago.
The stud farm is the dream project of Nirmal Singh who is a great racing enthusiast. The stud farm was operating on a modest scale. In the last few years, Nirmal Singh successfully made a serious effort to make a big impact on Indian racing scene by going in for massive expansion. The facilities for the young stock are truly magnificent. The stud farm has produced such outstanding horses like Be Safe, Quasar, Super Storm, and Dandified who are some of the most outstanding race horses that Indian racing has seen.
Rebuttal (Mr Greely) who stood as a stallion before his death, produced champions with amazing regularity including the Indian Derby winner Super Storm and Bangalore Derby winner Toroloco. Dandified who was a sensation at Kolkata was another top produce of Rebuttal.
The stud farm had a dream run in 2014-15, with its produce Be Safe and Quasar winning every big race in India.
Three new stallions have been procured by the stud farm in the last two years namely Net Whizz and Corporate Jungle. There is exciting buzz about these new stallions, with Corporate Jungle being the one to attract maximum attention.
The sprawling stud farm is the reason why it has been able to produce top class horses. The paddocks are easily the best and biggest in India, with an average size of about 20 acres. There is a natural pond in one of the paddocks which helps the weanlings to have a splash in water.
With the weanlings and yearlings having the facility of lush green paddocks and huge acreage for themselves, it is no surprise that the horses from the stud farm have taken Indian racing literally by storm. The stud farm produce has won every big race that is there to be won in India.
Nirmal Singh has a great eye for horses which is reflected in his ability to pick pregnant mares at Keeneland and Goff`s which have produced some outstanding horses. One of the mares purchased by him namely Sun Shower was bought back by Coolmore Stud Farm.
Hazara Stud Farm has quickly established itself as a giant among Indian stud farms in a short span of time. Nirmal Singh`s vision is singularly responsible for this spectacular dream run.
