Yearlings impress Agents

When selling agents were carrying out their annual inspections of yearlings, for the annual yearling sales early in the New Year, the progeny of Valentia impressed the astute audience.

Really it was no surprise, he is a very nice horse by Fastnet Rock, there is plenty of speed in the pedigree, he won the Skyline Stakes over 1200 metres at Group 2 level that had been won previously by Snitzel, Choisir and Hinchinbrook.

He was lightly raced, and that is an advantage, our better sires don’t have to be driven into the ground.

“Valentia is arguably the best looking colt ever seen at Tulloch Lodge” said Gai Waterhouse.

Sir Dancealot Sensational At Glorious Goodwood

It took some fancy footwork, and a determined late lunge, for Sir Dancealot (by Sir Prancealot) to take out a stunning renewal of the Group2 Qatar Lennox Stakes at Goodwood.

Weaving through traffic, under the guidance of veteran jockey Gerald Mosse, Sir Dancealot, who had encountered trouble in running, finished powerfully over the 7-furlong trip, to win by a short head.

The David Elsworth galloper has had an impressive preparation, last seen running a fast finishing fourth in the July Cup, after winning the Group 3 Criterion Stakes at Newmarket.

Elsworth said “he got into more trouble than I get into in the pub on a Saturday night.”

“His level of form has been very good, which gave him a very good chance today,” said the Newmarket trainer.

“Stall four was a difficult draw for a horse that needs to be taken back a little bit and relaxed, Gerald had a problem in organising him, everybody is trying to win, there is a lot of good luck involved and good fortune.”

“We would have been an unlucky loser, but we better be gracious in victory and say it was a scramble,” he said.

Asked about future plans, the trainer added, “we had a crack at a Group 1 the other day, there are lots of races for him, I have put him in the Hungerford Stakes which is another Group 2.”

Gerald Mosse, who rode Americain to win the 2010 the Melbourne Cup, registered his first winner at the Qatar Goodwood Festival said, “I hit the line on the right stride and although it was tight, I felt I had got there.”

“I really trust Sir Dancealot and wanted to ride him confidently, he is really a good horse and the best way to make him hit the line is to sit in and take time, I know when I press the button he will answer.”

“He is for me definitely a Group 1, it is not even a question, he needs things on his side a little bit when he races , but he has a great turn of foot, he is a magnificent animal and a dream to be on board.”.

Sir Dancealot ‘s sire, Sir Prancealot, stands at Cornerstone Stud at a fee $14,300 inc.GST

The loss of Hinchinbrook

The tragic loss of Hinchinbrook as a result of a broken hind leg will be felt throughout the entire breeding industry.

In particular the Mitchell family of Arthur and Harry, and the staff of Yarraman Park at Scone.

There will always be losses as far as bloodstock is concerned, it is unavoidable, but not a stallion in the prime of his life.

He was born and reared at Yarraman Park, he was rising 11 years of age, potentially with his best years still ahead of him, he was just blooming.

Hinchinbrook was a half brother to Snitzel, by Fastnet Rock from Snippets, he was among the most consistent sires this season, he is a great loss to the thoroughbred breeding industry.                


A Win for Zebedee in Hong Kong

Zebedee, who has proved a sensation in Europe, siring an average of 30 winners a season, broke new ground when siring a winner in Hong Kong over the last week-end, when Full Bloom won over 1600 metres at Sha Tin.

The gelding made most of the running, proving he is not only entirely a speed sire; there is some stamina in his make-up.

It was the first leg of a winning double for Zac Purton, as he won the following race on Glorious Forever.

The first crop of two year olds, bred to Southern Hemisphere time, by Zebedee, will race in the fast approaching new season.

His yearlings were popular in the sale ring, and are based in good stables, it will be no surprise to see his sons and daughters winning the early two year old races, and showing their owners an early return.
