Winning Ways to become broodmareSunday 26 January 2020
Queensland Oaks winner Winning Ways has left Australia for England where she is to be served by leading stallion Kingman.
Winning Ways was named Queensland Horse of the Year for last season which included her win in the Group One Oaks (2400m) in May.
Aquis Farm has confirmed the mare is in Newmarket and will be served by leading Juddmonte sire Kingman to northern hemisphere time.
"Aquis is happy to confirm Gr.1W Winning Ways has been purchased by Mrs. Loretta Fung, with many thanks to Mrs. Makin for her kind co-operation" Aquis said on Twitter.
Trainer Garry Newham was sad to see her go.
"She is a lovely mare and will be a success no matter what she does," he said.
Winning Ways won the Spring Cup at Eagle Farm in September and had her last Australian run at that track when third in the Shoot Out Quality on December 28.
Winning Ways won eight of her 18 starts and $582,000 prize money.
She was bought as a yearling by the late Paul Makin and his estate raced the mare in her final campaign.
She is one of several top class horses Newham has trained including the multiple Group One winner Starcraft raced by Makin.
Newham has several other horses for Makin's estate and will continue to train them.
"There are a couple of young horses here and I will continue to train them," he said.
"When they are finished that will be it for me as well."
