Syndicate Share to STEL CORONA

A SYNDICATE SHARE to the outstanding racehorse and champion sire Stel Corona, si 105, is offered for sale by syndicate members Chuck and Terryll Griffeth. This share is to one of the top sires in the racing industry, and a sire that is bound to be a producer of performance horses, too. It is  not only affordable, but share ownership gives the buyer an opportunity to breed to a stallion not always available to the public. The share, which comprises THREE BREEDS per year for the life of the stallion, holds the promise of future stakes winning horses for you!
