Allamerican Ingot (3, 1:50.6), the Western Hanover horse, a leading sire in Western Australia where his oldest stock are five-year-olds, will stand the coming season at Goodtime Lodge, near Colac, of Ian and Judi Slater.

Actually, Allamerican Ingot has made rather an impressive start as a sire in the West. In his first season he left 70 foals, and of these 35 have raced and 25 were winners. Of 30 four-year-old starters, 14 were winners and 10 were placed, while his three-year-old crop includes the talented Americanbootscoota (1:55.2), winner of the Westsired (Listed) 3YO Classic and runner-up in the $100,000 Westbred 2YO Classic.

From his first crop he sired the top fillies Highest Royalty (1:59.7), winner of the $100,000 WA Diamond Classic, Where Dreams Grow 1:54.7 ($101,250), who has won 12 races to date, and Pure Royalty (1:59).

All Aussie Boy (1:57.6), winner of the Westbred 2YO Classic and WA Country Derby, Lady Willoughby 1:56.6 ($140,003), Racey American (1:57), Kamendable Lass (1:57.8) and All Williams (1:57.9) have been other WA winners by Allamerican Ingot from his first crops.

Allamerican Ingot has achieved success as a sire in the manner expected of a horse of his impeccable bloodlines.

First at the stud in North America, Allamerican Ingot has left the winners of more than $22-million with four in 1:50, 130 in 1:55 and 67 $100,000 winners. They include the multiple Stakes winners Blueridge Western 1:49.4 ($1.6m), U All BB (1:49.6), Eagle All 1:49.8 ($641,409), Don’t Deny (1:50), Wayne The Lefty 1:51.6 ($661,513) and All Heart Gal 1:51.2 ($616,242).

A $285,000 yearling, Allamerican Ingot was one of the leading lights on the Grand Circuit earning $1,238,935 as a two and three-year-old. From only seven starts as a two-year-old he won four with three placings and set a new race record winning the time-honoured $700,000 Woodrow Wilson in 1:51.6, which also equalled the track record.

While at 3 he earned $817,020, while winning a further five races highlighted by the $260,000 Messenger Stake at The Meadows, in which he took his lifetime mark of 1:50.6. He also captured a division of the Simcoe Stake, a heat of the Little Brown Jug and an elimination of the James Dancer Memorial (2nd in Final) and finished a close third to Art Major and McArdle in the 3YO Breeders Crown final.

Apart from being by Western Hanover, Allamerican Ingot is out of the Abercrombie mare Incredible Margie, who figures as the second dam of champion USA racemare Pure Country 1:49.4 ($1.2-million). Incredible Margie, an American Hall Of Fame broodmare, left 10 winners with two in 1:50, eight in 1:55 and five $100,000 plus winners and progeny earnings of $3.7-million.

Allamerican Ingot will stand for a fee of $990 including GST.
