Alamosa - Overview

Alamosa was a champion on the track and he made a seamless transition to his stud career as New Zealand's leading freshman sire in all three divisions - progeny earnings, individual wins and most winners.

He is the sire of the high-class filly Kirramosa, who completed the Gr 2 Wakeful Stakes-Gr 1 VRC Oaks double in the spring, stakes winner Salamanca, Group One placegetter Aspen and the Group Two performer Goodman while Silk Belt, Quintette and Asprey have also earned black type.

During his racing days Alamosa demonstrated precocious speed, class and courage to make him an outstanding Group One-winning miler.

As a stallion he has taken to his new career with ease and has all the credentials to join the list of New Zealand’s most successful sires.

  • Gr. 1 winner as a two, three and four year old
