It was a tough start to Trust In Gust’s stud career with the dual Group 1 winner being in the paddock for a year before fronting up for duty.
But he is making up for lost time with his biggest crops coming through now and is certainly one to watch in the stallion ranks.
Trust In A Gust covered 58 mares in a first season and the next two seasons covered 67 and then 77 to give himself a good representation in the coming racing seasons.
He is in a very similar position to the one which Puissance de Lune found himself in last year when he had two year-olds which were rising three year-olds. Puissance de Lune didn’t have much hype going into the season, but all of sudden interest in him exploded and it was much justified.
There is nothing like positive feedback from trainers who have invested in a young stallion like Trust In A Gust and are anxiously waiting to see what types the progeny are and what is produced on the racetrack.
And the reports from trainers who have horses in their stables by Trust In A Gust has resulted in a strong and positive feedback from the likes of Greg Eurell, Colin Little, Mike Moroney and Stuart Kendrick.
