One to Watch Goes Two for Two

Tara Madgwick - Thursday May 19

A $500,000 Inglis Easter investment on a blue-blood Fastnet Rock filly for Jonathan Munz’s Pinecliff Racing looks like paying dividends with Passive Aggressive making it two wins in as many starts when saluting at Pakenham on Thursday evening.

Trained by Grahame Begg, three year-old filly Passive Aggressive was a Breednet ‘One to Watch’ when winning on debut at Werribee at the start of the month and took another step forward with an easy win in the Class 1 event over 1200m.

Starting a short priced favourite, she led all the way for Jordan Childs and was eased down to win as she pleased.


“I think she’s a very classy filly going forward, she just does everything right,” Jordan Childs said.

Bought by Dean Hawthorne Bloodstock, Passive Aggressive was bred and sold by Cressfield and is a full sister to Group III winning and multiple Group I placed sprinter Missrock, who won over $1.3million.

Passive Aggressive is the final foal from Group III winning Strategic mare Miss Judgement, who was retired from stud duties last year and is a sibling to Group I winner Mrs Onassis and Group III winners Fifth Avenue Lady and Aussies Love Sport.

Passive Aggressive was a $500,000 Inglis Easter purchase..

The value of this prolific Black Type female family was highlighted when Missrock was offered off the track at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale in 2019 where she fetched $2.3million to the bid of John and Jake Warren and was exported to the UK.

Missrock made $500,000 as a yearling in 2015, the same price paid for Passive Aggressive, so connections will no doubt be hoping her career can unfold with similar success now she is working through her grades.
