Yield Boko (Se)
Yield Boko Se Frozen Semen will be available at Aldebaran Park in Australia in the coming 2016/2017 season.
His Service Fee for the current 2016/2017 season remains the same as last season - $3,300 AUD incl. of GST. LFG.
Well patronised in his first 2 seasons, he returned to Sweden to stand again in the northern hemisphere in 2016.
His current first crop of foals were well sought after at the 2016 Australasian Premier Trotting Sale in Victoria, Australia with his Sales Average being $16,437.00 - over $2,000.00 more the Sales Average, and with his highest sold yearling selling for $40,000.00, there is little doubt that purchasers were well aware of his impeccable pedigree and the quality of his yearlings as presented at the Sales.
Prior to him returning to Sweden it was decided to collect limited quantities of his semen to ensure the opportunity to breeders on both sides of the Tasman this outstanding opportunity to breed to one of the finest stallions to have come from Europe to Australasia. With limited Frozen Semen available for the 2016/2017 Season it is suggested to all breeders that they book early so as not to miss out on the quality World Class stallion.
Champions are measured by success in Black Type races and in eleven countries across the Globe the Breeders Crown is the premium Harness Racing brand for age classics.
Dual Breeders Crown winners are rare and Yield Boko is one of them winning the Swedish 3YO Breeders Crown and the 4YO Swedish Breeders Crown.
In the 3YO Breeders Crown Yield Boko rated 1:58.8 for 2,140 metres, a time that represented a race record for the event and one that has not been bettered since.
The following year Yield Boko once again took out the Breeders Crown in equal race record time, on this occasion rating 1:58.4 for 2,140 metres.
Significantly Yield Boko's performance in the 4YO Breeders Crown was faster than those of Copiad, Victory Tilly, From Above and Commander Crowe, a quartet of 4YO Breeders Crown champions that went on to win the Elitloppet.
Yield Boko then won the European 5YO Championship at Bjerke (Norway) in the third fastest time ever - 1:56.7 for 2,140 metres - with the only quicker times being posted at the much faster rated circuits of Aby (Sweden) and Vincennes (France).
Viking Kronos, the sire of Yield Boko, was an out and out champion winning 12 of his 14 lifetime starts capturing the award as the richest 2YO of Europe in 1997 and the Swedish Horse of the Year title in 1998.
A son of Hambletonian victor American Winner and Hambletonian Oaks winner Conch, Viking Kronos quickly established himself as an exceptional stallion, topping the Swedish Sires table in 2010 and 2011.
Amongst his winners are three winners of the Swedish 2YO Breeders Crown, three winners of the Swedish 3YO Breeders Crown, three winners of the Swedish Breeders Crown, two Swedish Derby winners and even a USA World Trotting Derby winner.
Thus far Viking Kronos has six millionaires to his credit - Maharajah ($2,491,794), Triton Sund ($2,046,837), Thai Tanic ($1,072,720), Fama Currit ($1,028,889), Raja Mirchi ($1,050,977) and Lantern Kronos ($1,009,175). He is also the sire of Joke Face ($957,596) and Going Kronos ($889,871).
No concern either about Viking Kronos being a sire of sires and his first two sons have produced classic progeny, namely Turbo Sund and the exciting Going Kronos whose oldest crop, now 3YO, include 2013 G1 E3 Classic winner Mellby Briolett.
The tabulated pedigree of Yield Boko is one of the most powerful family combination available and conformation of that statement can be found by accessing Classic Families at www.classicfamilies.net - the four horses in his second generation belong to families U1, U5, U2 and U2.
Maternally Yield Boko comes from the family of the famous foundation mare Minnehaha as do thousands of other trotters, however, Yield Boko stands on greatest branch in terms of trotting sires and trotting speed.
His fourth dam Somolli, a sister to Hambletonian winner Legend Hanover, is the dam of four brothers who have produced classic progeny.
The headline act is the world's first 1:55 trotter in a race and Hambletonian winner Speedy Somolli, the sire of three Hambletonian winners and more importantly the grand sire of the immortal Valley Victory, the sire of three Hambletonian winners including Muscles Yankee (also sire of three Hambletonian winners).
Speedy Somolli's brother Lord Of All sired the Elitloppet winner Remington Crown ($3,057,931) while his sisters include Sonoma (dam of World Trotting Derby winner Somatic Tr.1:53.0), Singer Lobell (dam of Bartali OK - sire of dual German Breeders Crown winner Bagley), Sheba Lobell (dam of European 3YO Championship winner Turbo Sund), Seascape Lobell (third dam of dual Prix d'Amerique winner and now sire Offshore Dream - $2,390,429) and Mae Jeans Crown (dam of USTA 2YO Trotter of the Year Royal Troubadour - sire of three USA Breeders Crown champions).
Speedy Somolli's other sister Chickasaw provides the direct link to Yield Boko through her daughter Chickadee Hanover (dam of Netherlands Derby winner Kelsea Boko - Tr.1:55.9).
Chickadee Hanover's daughter Chatty Hanover is the dam of dual Kentucky Sires Stake winner Capetown Hall who was exported to Finland where he sired Liquorice Pipe, the only triple Finnish Breeders Crown winner in history.
Chickadee Hanover is also the dam of Cash Hall Tr.TT1:51.2 who has sired the winners of over $7 million to date in North America and Oulu Boko, the dam of Yield Boko.
There are pedigree crosses of the alltime great sires all along the maternal line of Yield Boko - he has a 3X3 to Super Bowl, his dam has a 3X3 to Speedy Crown and his granddam has a 2X3 to Star's Pride.
Just Pedigree and Performance does not a successful sire make for excellence in conformation, gait and temperament are of paramount importance.
Unfortunately information about all three can be a mystery for many broodmare owners in the search for a stallion, however, in the case of Yield Boko everything - pedigree, performance, conformation, gait, fertility, temperament - have been positively assessed by an independent panel appointed by the Swedish Trotting Association.
The panel assesses every stallion wishing to enter the stallion ranks in Sweden and failure to pass means that the stallion cannot be advertised as a public stallion and can only serve mares owned by the stallion's owner.
The fact that Yield Boko was approved for public stud duties in Sweden provides the greatest recommendation possible for broodmare owners here in Australia.
