We welcome a powerhouse colt by Hinchinbrook from the mare Rebel Sister, a half sister to G1 star Black Heart Bart.
We rated this colt as one of our very best on our shortlist and one of the lots of the sale, and after some negotiations we beat a number of other buyers to the punch and landed him with breeder Gerry Harvey to stay on in partnership with us, such is his confidence in the colt.
Not much needs to be said about Hinchinbrook, he has been an outstanding sire of G1 winners and major Group performers and was a massive loss to the Australian racing industry when he died. Our colt is from his very last crop.
The colt is a close relation to multiple G1 winner and WFA star Black Heart Bart, his dam is a half sister that has already produced two multiple stakes winners, one stakes placegetter and two other winners from six foals to race – Hinchinbrook is a big upgrade for her, he is clearly the best stallion she has visited and we have huge confidence that the mating will deliver another serious horse.
Our colt will be trained on the beach at Warrnambool by Lindsey Smith from the same stable that Black Heart Bart was trained from for his six G1 wins. I am sure we can keep this great story continuing for many years to come as we continue to add to this proven pedigree.
