Getting Your Right Recognition

Two Flemington stakes-winners on Saturday trace back to the same broodmare along their tail female line and this winner of the 1984 Listed WATC Gimcrack Stakes has spawned an impressive Black Type dynasty that has also given us a couple of promising young sires whose first foals are being born this spring on opposite sides of the country.

Like Father, Like Son

Beautiful spring weather at Coolmore on Sunday was enjoyed by a big crowd in attendance for the annual stallion parade with legendary sire Fastnet Rock the first into the ring followed by his heir apparent.

First Foal for Acrobat

A dazzling debut winner at two of the Inglis Nursery, Acrobat was a horse we never saw enough of, but that one brief glimpse of his freakish talent was enough to secure the blue-blood son of Fastnet Rock a slot on the Coolmore roster and James Bester could not wait to come and see his first foal.

Sires by Bloodline – Fastnet Rock

Coolmore’s champion Aussie bred sire Fastnet Rock might be turning 22 this year, but he posted his 43rd Group I winner in Ireland last weekend with quality mares Via Sistina and Stay Alert running one-two in the Pretty Polly Stakes so there is no better time to take a closer look at his legacy as a sire of sires.

Group I Quinella for Fastnet Rock

Champion Australian sire Fastnet Rock featured in Ireland overnight with a Group I quinella in the Pretty Polly Stakes (1m2f) at The Curragh won by Via Sistina defeating Stay Alert.

Top 20 Busiest First Season Sires

The release of Australian Studbook official covering statistics is always interesting for our first season sires as all the marketing in the world won’t convince a broodmare owner to use a first season horse unless they actually like him when they see him.
