2018 Horses In Training Catalogue


The 2017/18 season had been a fantastic year for us, highlighted by reaching our goal of 50 winners. August 2018 marked our first full year of racing and we have acheived some real breakthroughs. We had our first double in October (quickly followed by another in November) and in May we had our first across-the-state double. Our proudest acheivement was winning our first stakes race, the Group 3 Lord Reims, with Etah James in March. In November we had the highest strike rate of any Victorian based stable, finishing the season with the fourth highest strike rate of Victoria’s top 15 trainers. This past 12 months has seen us have our first Victorian Derby runner, our first Queensland runner in the Magic Millions Two-Year-Old race and our first Sydney Winter Carnival winner. We have proved we can get the winners locally and we are laying the foundations for success in the Australia’s most important races. In order to do that we rely heavily on top-quality Thoroughbreds bought and bred and sent to us by ambitous owners. We also try to make our own luck by sourcing and selecting the very best bloodstock we can find. This catalogue takes you through some of our best selections and provides you with an opportunity to get involved and be part of the team. Please feel free to get in touch at any time. All the best,

Pentire x Passchendaele (colt) “The single most athletic horse in the sale - we had to fight off some good judges to secure him. The price was high but still fair. He is, after all, the product of top stallion out of a Group 2 winning daughter of Montjeu.”

"On type and with his successful pedigree cross, I expect him to be competitive over a mile, but in a different league over 2000m+.” - Matt

Wandjina x Pentolite (Colt) A stand out type with a strong, powerful walk. This perfectly proportioned colt is the spitting image of his sire, the VRC Guineas winner, Wandjina.

"A good looker with Snitzel and Pentire as his grandfathers, and bred on the same cross as Russian Revolution and Idvader, we’re hoping he will be our Guineas horse.� - Matt

Shamexpress x Queen of Avalon (Colt) We’ve taken a liking to Shamexpress. His progeny come in different shapes and sizes but they all have a real quality to them and basic, natural, athleticism. This colt, from the family of Monaco Consul, is one of the best I’ve seen from the sire.

"He’ll be quick but it’ll be interesting to see how the Northern Dancer in his blood plays out in the flesh. I love the O'Reilly / Sadler's Wells cross too.” - Matt

Nicconi x Rhythm Beat (Colt) “A top class type by top class stallion this colt is also Super VOBIS nominated. He gave us a pretty impressive show on the gold coast - he looks the part and he knows it too.”

A brother to speedy dual winner, Soltinho Lad and a close relation to this season’s Group winner KAEPERNICK (2nd to REDZEL 2-Sep).

Dundeel x Vivid Vixen (Colt) A hugely athletic colt by a properly exciting stallion in DUNDEEL, already the sire of a Group-winning 2yo. The mare, Vivid Vixen won 8 races including the Pakenham Cup.

"This colt is by a future super sire, from a super family and is a stunning type. I love everything about this horse, he's an exciting prospect." - Matt

IFFRAAJ x DANNESS (FILLY) “This filly is by a proven world-class stallion in both hemispheres and one that produces Champion 2 year olds, G1 Sprinters and Milers, classic fillies and derby winners. She is a beautiful mover and has strength."

“From the same family as 30 stakes-winners including Group 1 winners: REBEL RAIDER, MOSSFUN, ABLE ONE and RISING ROMANCE. And Iffraaj is a proven Group 1 cross for Danehill-line mares.”

SHAMEXPRESS x CRYSTALTHECOWGIRL (FILLY) A half sister to Group class galloper ANTONIO GIUSEPPE, by an up-and-coming young sire who we have a lot of time for.

She looks like she'll make a really nice miler, with both speed and stamina in her family.
