Rising 2YO colt by the leading second crop sire in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and other South Asia countries, Stratum, whose progeny have earned more $3.3million during 2010-11 season. A winner of New South Wales’ premier juvenile event the Golden Slipper, Stratum has also sired a Golden Slipper winner in Crystal Lily.
