In the Thoroughbred breeding industry the word longevity is rarely used positively unless accompanied by its counterpart, success. Such a truism can be said of George Altomonte’s Corumbene Stud at Dunedoo. With the 40th anniversary of the stud’s inception on the horizon, George and his team can look back with pride at the quality of horses to have come off the farm, and look forward with positive expectation that amongst the crops to follow will be many horses of the same ilk.
Most studs dream of breeding a Golden Slipper winner. Corumbene has bred two and raced another that was placed third, a remarkable achievement given the farm focusses on quality over quantity. Corumbene bred Sebring and sold him out of the Magic Millions Gold Coast ring back in 2007 and then won the Slipper in 2013 with their homebred filly Overreach. A Corumbene – Magic Millions purchase in Hasna had previously been placed in the Slipper before winning the AJC Sires’ Produce and the Champagne Stakes. Corumbene also bred and sold the Blue Diamond Stakes winner True Jewels while they bred and raced the Gr.1 The Metropolitan winner Heart Ruler.
