Goldmine Mirage-HSH's 2016 frozen semen advertisement.


The only remaining son of our foundation broodmare, Goldmine Champagne Blush-HSH, Goldmine Mirage-HSH is a simply stunning cremello stallion with a double cross to the legendary Claredale Champagne Charlie-HSH.  

Claredale Champagne Charlie-HSH was one of the best performing palomino stallions to ever enter the show ring and with Chico d'Oro, the two most influential sires of palomino horses in Australia.  

Charlie won multiple ridden and led Royal Show Championships in QLD, NSW and VIC, including a successful dressage career, training up to Prix St George level.   Charlie's sire, Desert Gold, competed successfully in dressage at FEI level, and was a B Grade Showjumper. 

Charlie’s progeny have been sold around Australia and overseas and are used for just about everything.


Goldmine Mirage-HSH has certainly inherited the easy going temperament that Charlie is renowned for passing down.   Calm and trainable with a beautiful trot and canter, Mirage is proof that you don’t need to compromise on movement or temperament to breed colour.

Mirage is a 16.1h stud book registered heritage Australian Stock Horse, with a very high percentage of Thoroughbred and 6.25% Arabian.    Progeny are registerable with the Australian Stock Horse Society as full stud book or first cross, the ACE Group in their performance horse register, Dilutes Australia as a dilute and ancillary, and the Australian Palomino Horse Breeders Association (APHA), depending on the mare's registrations.

He is an ideal cross to Thoroughbred, Australian Stock Horse, Arabian or Warmblood mares, for those looking for good temperament and trainability, good movement, height, elegance and a golden coat. 

Mirage is a 3/4 sibling to our mares Goldmine Latte-HSH (multiple National, Horse of the Year, State, and Royal Show Champion) and Skyview Champagne Rose-HSH, and a 1/2 sibling to our filly Skyview Eternity-HSH (2015 National Buckskin Filly Horse of the Year).  Their details are on the "Our Mares and Performance Horses" page.

Goldmine Mirage-HSH's first crop of foals born in the last 2 years have lived up to all expectations.

He is the sire of Skyview Sovereign, palomino colt born October 2015 and sold to QLD as a future performance horse and stallion prospect.

100% producer of palomino or buckskin to all mares except greys.
Mirage is DNA colour tested ee AA CrCr, so will never produce a black buckskin / smoky black foal.
