Comments from syndicator Australian Bloodstock who syndicated Protectionist, winner of the 2015 Melbourne Cup.
We're pleased to have purchased lot 319 at the recent 2017 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.
It's no surprise that Hinchinbrook is on the rise given his race track ability and the depth of his own pedigree but a little statistic that most people don’t know is from his 8 stakes winners 6 are fillies and they are operating at a massive 18% Winners to Stakes horses.
Simple when he gets a nice filly they are deadly.
What is also interesting is that of those 6 stakes horses they are all Bay or Brown- exactly like this girl.
Therefore the fillies where all our radar and the best Hinchinbrook filly in the sale was lot 319 . She is from a highly successful family raced by Pat Carey and already this mare has produced ULUNDI and FURNFORD both whom are stakes winners.
A review down the pedigree highlights that the family produces highly successful fillies and every generation has thrown a genuine Group class filly all the way back for 5 generations.
This mare has had 3 fillies only and the first one was small and broke down and the last 2 foals have been by little known sire Congrats. In fact Hinchinbrook is by far the best stallion the mare has ever visited so our chances are extremely high as the dam is a proven producer
Harry Mitchell from Yarraman Park highly recommended the filly based on her attitude and how well she had done leading up until the sale and she is a simple a beautiful scopey filly with a real presence that everyone who sees her will comment on. Given Pat Carey was the under bidder we were made to pay for her - but we feel she will be something pretty good in 12 months’ time and will be money well spent.
