Snapy Halo To Stand At Colivar Farm In Virginia

Snapy Halo, a Group 1 winner in his native Argentina and a veteran sire, has been sold to Josep Bassaganya-Riera’s Colivar LLC, and he will stand the 2022 breeding season at Colivar’s Owl Hollow Farm in Floyd, Va.

The 18-year-old son of Southern Halo previously stood at Calumet Farm in Lexington, Ky.

Bassaganya-Riera, an entrepreneur and a biotech pioneer said, “I am pleased to announce that Covilar LLC initiated operations in the second half of 2021. We are proud to build on the legacy of success of the Owl Hollow Farm. The 120-acre equestrian estate located near the Blue Ridge Parkway is currently being renovated to become a premier breeding and racing Thoroughbred facility. The breeding barns are fully functional and ready to accommodate any number of mares immediately.”

Snapy Halo raced primarily in Argentina, with a few races in Australia. He won Argentina’s Group 1 Gran Premio Estrellas Mile in June 2009, prevailing by three lengths and stopping the clock in 1:32.49.

As a sire Snapy Halo has sired 58 foals, with 45 starters (78 percent), 26 winners (45 percent) and two stakes winners (three percent).

Snapy Halo is happy and adjusting well to his new home. Just a day after arriving at Covilar Farm, he was breeding mares.

Snapy Halo will stand for an advertised fee of $2,000, with special considerations under certain conditions.
