They don’t lovingly call For A Reason ‘Frank the Tank’ for no reason…he’s built like one! 

From limited opportunities, the proven Group One sire, is the richest and fastest Australasian-based son of Art Major, six-time leading sire of two-year-olds in Australia, and the leading sire of three-year-olds on four occasions. In North America alone, Art Major is the sire of winners of more than $80million, with 31 inside 1:50. 

A millionaire racehorse and 1:49.4 tough speed machine, For A Reason is bred to be the champion he was on the racetrack: his grand-dam, by the immortal Lordship, not only won, but produced 11 winners of a combined 138 races, with five inside 2:00.

Left For Me, the dam of For A Reason, won 10 races, with 20 placings, and took a 1:59 career best.

But it is at stud that Left For Me has further excelled; the mare is by Fake Left, one of the greatest sires and ‘Kings of Queens’ to stand at stud in Australasia.

Left For Me is a broodmare gem: her eight foals of racing age are all winners, and all inside 2:00, with combined earnings on the cusp of $1.5million.

The choice of Art Major over a Fake Left mare is a winning one, with For A Reason the ‘Poster Boy’ for this breeding ‘cross.'  

For A Reason raced in Group company his entire career; from winning the Chokin at two, to capturing four Derbys, to retiring prematurely after the Chariots Of Fire with a bone chip.

His first year at Stud in 2011 saw him serve 33 mares for 10 individual winners so far, including three Group winners - Conviction, Taylors Reason and Geldof.  

For A Reason defied the odds and won the 2013 Victoria Cup when he returned to the racetrack after stud duty: six-year-old horses generally don’t do that…but ‘Frank the Tank’ did!

At seven, it was much the same story, with wins in the the Goulburn Cup, Group One Garrards Queensland Pacing Championship, and the Shirley Turnbull Memorial, bringing his earnings past a stunning $1.1million.

Versatility, toughness and lightning speed were trademarks of this beautiful-natured racehorse, with those traits now being passed on to his colts and fillies alike. 

With generous discounts and breeding schemes such as the Colonial Bonus, For A Reason provides you with every reason to breed your next - or first - Group winner.

For A Reason is eligible for the NSW Colonial Stallion Bonus Scheme.  This means regardless of where your mare is served and your foal born, you receive a $500 bonus when a live foal is born.  This bonus can be used to pay for NSW Breeding Scheme Fees, with any residual returned to the Foal Nominator as cash.

For A Reason is also eligible for the NSW True Blue Bonus. This bonus is restricted to broodmares inseminated in NSW, where the progeny is foaled in NSW and notified to HRNSW.  The bonus is a $3,000 cash Bonus payable to the owner of the horse for its first 2YO or 3YO win.

Regardless of where your broodmare is inseminated or where the foal is born, the progeny of For A Reason will be eligible for the NSW Breeders Challenge.

His progeny is also eligible for all other state breeding schemes VicBred, QBred, TASBred, WestBred and the Southern Cross Series (if your mare is inseminated and the foal is born in the same state).

All progeny will also be eligible to compete in the Breeders Crown and Bathurst Gold Crown.
