Casino Prince still getting Winners

A week seldom passes that Casino Prince doesn’t sire a winner, the majority may be away from the city limits, but winners are winners, and that is what counts.

Casino Prince is a consistent sire yet he still doesn’t get the recognition that he is entitled to, as he does get results.

Last week he came up with four wins for the week, before that it was three, he seldom fails, a very reliable sire, and more importantly, he stands at a realistic service fee.

He is also a sire of sires evidenced by his son All Too Hard, a weight for age success and now a proven sire.

Casino Prince was foaled in 2003, by the leading sire Flying Spur, he was a Golden Slipper success and also won the time honoured All Aged Stakes that sealed his successful career as a sire.  

Casino Prince didn’t win a Slipper, he won the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes, the Alister Clarke Stakes, and second In the first season at stud, he was acclaimed champion first season sire, and repeated it again in his second season.

He is the only sire under $28,000 service fee to sire 100 winners in the last three seasons, sixty eight winners to runners, and 15 Stakes winners.

Casino Prince ticks all the boxes, a proven sire at an affordable service fee.

 Zebedee first metro Winner

Zebedee sired his first metropolitan winner, in Adelaide on Saturday, when God’s Penny recorded an impressive win in the two year old at Morphettville.

He had sired two previous winners, Isciot at Gawler and Luff at Muswellbrook, but God’s Penny is his first city winner in Australia

Zebedee arrived at Sam Hayes’s Cornerstone Stud with quite a reputation, he had limited racing, only seven starts, in the style of a budding champion, winning six races effortlessly.

He is really a very nice horse with lots of speed and quality, he has inherited that speed through his sire, Invincible Spirit that is a male line that is certainly very prominent, God’s Penny could easily repeat his win.

Weaner Tops Sales

A weaner filly offered by Kitchwin Hills stole the show when she was knocked down for $600,000 at this week’s Sydney Sales.

Even the vendor was shocked, he didn’t think he would top the sale, however the bidding was spirited, she is going to make into a lovely yearling, but whether she would be pinned hooked is most unlikely .

She was listed as lot 104, the foal was by the all conquering sire, I Am Invincible, the second foal of her dam, Srikandi, won nine races, five in succession, including the Stradbroke Handicap.

Three dams on the catalogue page had produced 47 winners, we will be awaiting Srikandi first foal, a yearling will be most interesting.
