At the Inglis Ready 2 Run Sales in Sydney on October 26th, we purchased this colt to come to Perth where he’ll be trained by Grant & Alana Williams.
He’s by the Group 1 winner Awesome Rock, a winner of over $2,000,000 on the track! Awesome Rocks biggest wins included the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes at Moonee Valley, and The Group 1 MacKinnon Stakes at Flemington. He retired as the highest earning son of Fastnet Rock in Australia, and has now commenced his career at stud kicking off in fine style producing some handy runners from his first crop. With his oldest progeny just 3 year olds, from a limited number of runners, he’s had winners such as the Belgravia Stakes winner Searchin’ Roc’s, Kaymay, Outspoken Lad, Zadar Rock, and the stakes placed Diamond Blue.
Boasting a very handy pedigree, this colt is a half brother to 5 winners including Zap (9 wins), Time To Test (7 wins including the Listed Port Adelaide Cup), Klever Man (5 wins including in Singapore too), Material Witness (3 wins) and The Catholic Girl (2 wins). Coincidentally, the first three dams on his pedigree page have each had 6 to race for 5 winners, so that’s 15 winners between them. It’s a thoroughbred family that continually churns out winners through the generations, and this colt looks to have inherited his fair share of ability too.
He was Lot 71 at the Inglis Ready 2 Run Sale, and breezed up in good style. Our ‘Chairman Of Selectors’, John Price described him as “a big horse, well grown, well balanced, and shaped up as good as any horse I’ve looked at, at this sale. He’s got a beautiful temperament, his time in the breeze up was very good without being pushed, and he’s an absolute bargain at the price. A very exciting young horse”.
As mentioned above, this colt will be trained by Grant & Alana Williams who have enjoyed so much success both in Perth and the Eastern States too. Previously, the Williams Racing stable has predominantly trained for one client, however, Grant and Alana now believe the time is right to change direction with their stable to allow a more diverse client base to enjoy the thrill of racing horses with them, and this colt gives you that opportunity!
This is a 20 share syndicate priced at $5,300 each, which includes the auction purchase price, transport to WA, agistment and training to the end of 2021, insurance and all other associated costs including gst.
This syndicate is pending approval from The Lead Regulator.
