The first crop of Warrawee Needy wasn't large, but it's already making an impact and getting attention around the globe.

On Saturday night, Warrawee Needy had his first two-year-old winner from his five-foal first crop. Warrawee Speedy, a daughter from Dragon Again mare Warrawee Jangle, tripped the timer in 1:57.1 at Hiawatha Horse Park in her lifetime debut for trainer-driver Eddie Green and owner Mona Racette of Oshweken, Ont. That's the fastest time for a two-year-old pacing filly on a five-eighths mile track in Canada thus far.

Two days later, Trot Insider learned that the Ontario-based pacing stallion would be shuttled downunder for stallion service in Australia at Yirribee Stud Farm, operated by Rod Woodhouse and his partner Diane Sutherland.

Ruleen Lilley of Mac Lilley Farms noted that Warrawee Needy will stand for a service fee of $3,500 + GST or $3,850. (The Canadian and Australian dollar are almost equivalent in value.) According to Lilley, Australian service fees are due after the mare is checked in foal at 42 days. If the mare does not have a live foal, then a rebreed is offered the following year. The service fee is refunded if the stallion dies.

Warrawee Needy will head to quarantine at Walnridge Farm in New Jersey for two weeks, then fly over to Melbourne, Australia for another two weeks of quarantine. He'll arrive in time for the start of the Australian breeding season on September 1.
