SUN STUD

VICTORIA’S PREMIER STALLION FARM

SUN STUD, Victoria’s premier stallion farm, will field a 10-strong roster for the 2018 breeding season, which includes exciting newcomer THRONUM.

 

Thronum, a Lindsay Park trained son of Snitzel, won his first two races as a 2YO, then first up at three in the Listed Rosebud Stakes and, in January, led throughout to win the Group Two Australian Stakes. At his most recent outing, Thronum finished a narrow second in the Group One William Reid Stakes.

FAST STEPPING WINS FOR FIGHTING SUN
Sun Bloodstock owned three-year-old FAST STEPPING has come from off the pace to land the knockout blow over 1100m at Geelong on Thursday.

The FIGHTING SUN gelding had shown tremendous pace in his initial two-start New South Wales campaign as a two-year-old, where he led his opponents easily before enduring narrow defeats.

It was a different story for his Victorian debut though, as Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott hatched a plan with Brett Prebble to ride the chestnut with cover, and the riding tactic paid dividends, as he mowed down the front runners with a great turn of foot to register an impressive 3/4-Length first-up victory, at just his third career start.

FAST STEPPING is the first foal out of the Casino Prince mare, Arikara. Sun Bloodstock purchased the attractive chestnut for $120,000 from the draft of Turangga Farm at the 2017 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale. Interestingly, FAST STEPPING was bred by Ramsey Pastoral, who were also responsible for breeding FIGHTING SUN.

Victoria’s Champion First Season Sire covered a strong book of 130 mares during the 2018 breeding season.

HAWKSHOT POWERS HOME FOR FIORENTE
First crop FIORENTE gelding HAWKSHOT has sprouted wings to come from last and win over 1200m at Sandown on Wednesday.

A debut winner at 2, HAWKSHOT has always been held in high regard by the Darren Weir stable, but he has been hindered by his tendency to over race.

The three-year-old wanted to get the job over with quickly again today, severely over racing in the middle stages of the race when the leaders dropped anchor and crawled in front. However, he was able to overcome that obstacle to power home from the rear of the field and register a huge win under a 60kg impost.

“To finish off like that after doing a bit wrong, he shows the signs of a really smart horse,” said regular jockey, Mark Zahra.

“We just need to get his manners right, he has an exceptional turn of foot.”

HAWKSHOT is a homebred for Sun Bloodstock and is the second named foal out of the Encosta de Lago mare, Rosa Perlato. He has a promising two-year-old full-brother in the Hayes, Hayes and Dabernig camp called POWER SCHEME and their dam is in foal to exciting freshman sire THRONUM.

FIORENTE covered a full book of mares in 2018 after experiencing a huge spring with his progeny - including 6 winners in 16 days and a Group 2 win and Group 1 VRC Derby placing for STARS OF CARRUM.
