Srikandi will spend her days at Kitchwin Hills at Scone in New South Wales after visiting Snitzel who stands at nearby Arrowfield Stud at Segenhoe.

The Dubawi mare is a winner of nine races from fifteen starts and among her victories were the Group 1 $2m AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) at Doomben and the Group 1 $500,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Club Tiara (1400m) at the Gold Coast during the 2015 Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

Srikandi was prepared by Melbourne trainer Ciaron Maher and the six year old had her last race start when fifth to Delectation in the 2015 Group 1 $1m Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington and left the race track earning over $2.3 million.

As well as winning twice at Group 1 level, Srikandi was also placed on two occasions in the that grade with a third to River Lad in the 2014 Stradbroke Handicap and a second to Chautauqua in the Group 1 $1m Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley at her second last start.

Kitchwin Hills farm manager Mick Malone said that he was looking forward to seeing Srikandi settle into her new surrounding among several other high class mares.

“We’re delighted Srikandi’s owners have decided to send her to Kitchwin Hills, where she will join a long list of outstanding broodmare talent,” Malone said.

“She was one of hell of a racehorse, but she’s also got a stellar pedigree to boot, which makes it even more exciting. Being a daughter of Dubawi is also a major bonus, as it opens up so many avenues when you consider the number of Danehill and Danehill-line stallions in Australia.”

“Srikandi had bags of speed and a mating with Snitzel looks the perfect match. He continues to produce stock of the highest calibre, who run at two and invariably train on.”
