THROWBACK THURSDAY - THRONUM The 1200m Listed race The Rosebud is set to be run at Rosehill this Saturday - it’s the first stakes race for 3YO's in the new season and a key pointer to the spring.
The Rosebud is one of five races won by Sun Stud’s exciting young Snitzel stallion THRONUM.
THRONUM won his first two starts as a 2YO and was sent out a $3 shot at his first attempt at stakes level and he passed the test with flying colours by rallying to victory in the most testing conditions.
Not only was he a brilliant speed horse on top of the ground - where he won the Group 2 Australian Stakes on a Good 4 and ran a narrow second in the Group 1 William Reid on a Good 3 - he was also as tough as they come on a bottomless Heavy 10, where he refused to yield despite doing all of the work in the run.
A true blueblood, THRONUM is closely related to SHAMARDAL (146 stakes winners) and STREET CRY (131 stakes winners)… it’s in the DNA!
