Sire: Gingerbread Man
Dam: Miss Swaney
Foaled: Sep 05, 2017
Price:$2,750 per 5%
Trainer: Dan Morton
If buying into yearlings and playing the waiting game isn’t quite your thing, then take a look at this very nice 2 year old gelding that was personally selected by trainer Dan Morton from the 2019 Magic Millions Perth yearling sale.
He was purchased mainly on physique because he’s a great athletic type with very correct conformation, but also because Dan had a little bit of inside information on him…
This horse was reared on the same farm as his stable star over the last few seasons Dainty Tess (winner of over $1,000,000!), and Dan knows that their horses aren’t pushed or over prepared too soon too early, and if shown the right amount of patience, they grow into very nice types. Since buying him early in 2019, we’ve also shown this horse the same amount of patience by taking him along slowly-no rush-and now we’re seeing the benefits of that because he’s developed into a magnificent looking two year old.
“Patience is the cheapest thing in racing-and the least used”
By one of the World’s great stallions in SHAMARDAL, Gingerbread Man was an outstanding horse in Singapore where he was the Champion 2yo and 3yo winning 5 Group races from 1200m to 1600m and earning $1.4 million dollars in prizemoney. He’s an emerging stallion, and his best two runners to date are Achernar Star who’s won 6 races and over $900,000 and Neurological who won 9 races and over $330,000.
This horse is out of a full sister to the Listed winner MAGSAYA, a winner of 5 races, and hails from the family of that wonderful race mare PRINCESS TALARIA who was one of the best of her generation winning 6 races including the Group 1 VATC One Thousand Guineas. Every dam on his pedigree page is a winner who have also produced multiple winners. There’s no doubt too that Gingerbread Man is the best stallion that Miss Swaney has been to, and therefore should produce the best progeny.
Progress wise, as a colt, he was broken in mid year, went to Ascot for two weeks for a look around, was spelled, and then went to trainer Dan Morton’s for an educational prep before being turned out again and gelded in December. He’s received outstanding reports from all the riders and stable staff, and they’re all looking forward to getting him back into the stables again. That’ll happen in March 2020 when he’ll return to work and set out on a path to making his debut public trial before going on to the races when the trainer sees fit.
He’s a ripping type who’s been shown all the patience that he’s needed, and with a big rap already from the trainer, he could be the horse that gives you a great opportunity to get into the winner’s circle and make 2020 your year!
