There’s no question that Australian racing revolves around precocious speed, and if it’s a precocious speedy type you’re after, then take a good look at the Sooboog’s!
By the Champion stallion Snitzel, and a brother to the Group 1 VRC Lightning Stakes winner Snitzerland, Sooboog boasts an exemplary pedigree, and as a yearling himself, his $1.5 million price tag gives a clear indication that he has the looks to match.
Sooboog’s ownership group and breeding right holders include some of the biggest names in the industry with the likes of James Bester, Peter Moody, The Mitchell family and James Harron to name only a few. Entering his fifth season at stud, Sooboog has gained serious momentum covering big books of mares over his first four seasons, well over 500 in fact, and this support that he’s received from breeders gives him every opportunity to achieve success on the track!
In the sales ring, the progeny of Sooboog have been well sought after at the major yearling sales around Australia, averaging 7 times his service fee for the second consecutive year. More important than any price tag, are the trainers they have gone to – all major stables in the country are empowered with his progeny. On the racetrack, we’ve seen his 2 year olds commence racing in the 2020-21 season and with positive results, he now sits in the Top 3 on the first season sires list and is in the Top 10 General two Year Olds Sires by Winners Table. He boasts 7 winners (8 wins) from only 19 runners. Stake’s-placed BIRDSVILLE, his best performer to date running 3rd behind INGRATIATING (Frosted) (2nd Blue Diamond, 3rd Golden Slipper) & GIMMIE PAR (Not A Single Doubt) in the Talindert Stakes at Flemington following his debut win.
Arguably the best bred, best looking, best value son of Snitzel at stud, this filly is your opportunity to either add one to your stable, or if you’re just starting out, at the price we’re offering her for, she looks an ideal ‘dip your toe in the water’ prospect.
She’s only the second foal from the Melbourne placed Written Tycoon mare Costa Laquetta. The first foal of the mare is-at the time of the writing-an unraced 2yo and has been placed in a trial. Looking at her pedigree, this is a prolific winning family. The filly’s second dam Costa Kara was a winner over 1500m who at stud has had 7 to race for 5 winners including two stakes horses. Her third dam Princess Kara won 5 races (3 on Melbourne city tracks) and at stud has had 8 to race for 6 winners, and the fourth dam Jumping Josephine was also a multiple winner in Melbourne and at stud has had 11 to race for 9 winners!
This filly is an early running type. Our plan is to have her ready to trial and race in the early part of her 2yo season, so if waiting’s not your thing, this filly should suit! She’ll be trained at Ascot by Martin Allan who’s proven to be very popular with our owners, and of course, is very good at training winners too.
