Leviathan American owner and breeder Barbara Banke has revealed her mating plans for former champion New Zealand sprinter Bounding. 

Her Stonestreet Stables purchased the daughter of Lonhro for A$1.9 million in 2016, and Banke said she wanted to take full advantage of Bounding's speed, hence plans for the mare to visit Danzig’s son War Front. 

“We imported Bounding ahead of the 2016 Northern Hemisphere season and she is expecting her first foal by Curlin. Physically, she's flawless, and we are looking for a fast, precocious two-year-old so she will visit War Front.”

Crowned New Zealand’s champion sprinter and champion three-year-old Filly, Bounding won eight of her 19 starts including the Gr. 1 Railway Stakes at Ellerslie.
