A brilliant juvenile by Tale of the Cat (USA), Whittington has three crops racing with his progeny continuing to race on successfully and win as 3 and 4yos.

This season his city winners have included Stampe (Chris Munce), Patches (Michael Nolan), Firebox (Chris Anderson) and Dansant (Steve Tregea).

Whilst he has provided substantial winners on the Qld provincial circuit tapping his owners and stables into the lucrative QTIS bonus scheme.



These have included Such A Whit (Mick Bannon - 5 wins in Central Qld), Waterway (Roy Chillemi - 3 in North Qld), Oswana (Tom Smith - 3 in Central Qld) & Shamaton (Tony Gollan - 2 in Southern Qld).
