Reliable Man has just ended his covering season at Gestüt Röttgen in Germany and has arrived back to New Zealand for his 4th breeding season.
In his 3 rd season in Europe, he had around 70 mares booked to visit him, an increase of 30 % from his 1st season, due to his good looking foals and yearlings. His fertility was again excellent.
As predicted he is very popular again this coming season in New Zealand with another book of over 150 mares.
