In 2014, Champion racehorse Falvelon was inducted into the Queensland Racing Hall of Fame for being a flag bearer for the Australian Racing Industry on the International stage.
During his racing career Falvelon had collected many honours, including, twice Crowned Champion Sprinter in Australia and four times Queensland Horse of the Year. At the time of his retirement he held the Australian Record (over $4 Million including bonuses) for prizemoney earned by a Sprinter.
On the 10th October 1998, the crowd at Eagle Farm got a glimpse into the future champion’s ability, when Falvelon missed the start in the 1000m Listed Meynink Stakes for colts and geldings but still managed to storm home to win.
Falvelon went on to became an undefeated Stakes winning two year old who managed to win his first seven starts including the Group 3 Chivas Regal over 1200m at Flemington.
Falvelon raced from the age of 2 to a rising 7 year old during which he won the Doomben 10,000 twice (still holds the race record of 1.17.2), he also won the BTC Cup, the Carlton Cup (twice), MVRC Schweppes Stakes, VATC Schillachi Stakes, and the VRC Chivas Regal Stakes.He was rarely far away in big races with his minor placings in the VRC Lightning, MVRC Manikato, VRC Newmarket, Oakleigh Plate, AJC TJ Smith, Emirates Classic (twice), BTC Cup and the Stradbroke Handicap.
Arguably Falvelon’s most impressive feat, was to twice win the prestigious International Hong Kong Sprint, beating the best sprinters in the world.
Falvelon retired sound to stud with a race record of 37 starts 15 wins 7 seconds and 6 thirds.
