Eighth Individual Winner For One Cool Cat

12 May 2008

Coolmore Stud freshman sire
One Cool Cat has continued an explosive start to his stud career in the Northern Hemisphere by producing his eighth individual winner, the Irish-bred colt
 Cool Art, who won  his second race-day start at Yarmouth.

Cool Art is the third winner and sixth foal out of Fee Faw Fum (Great Commotion) who won three races in Italy.

She is also the dam of
Fabled Bully (Northern Flagship) who was a multiple winner in Italy and he dual winner Full Power (by Elnadim).

The second dam, Fourth Of July, produced 10 winners from 10 runners including the Listed winner Five Pennies and Listed placegetter Fingle Fangle.

The third dam,
Five Diamonds, produced the Italian Listed winner Fly North.

Sir Patrick Hogan of Cambridge Stud, where One Cool Cat stands for his southern hemisphere seasons, said the early abundance of 2yo winners sired by One Cool Cat comes as no surprise.

"Seeing One Cool Cat siring these precocious types of two-year-olds does not surprise me," said Sir Patrick. "He was a speed horse himself and a dual Group 1 winning juvenile. He had magnificent individuals in the sale ring at Karaka this year where they sold for up to $925,000," he said.

James Bester, spokesperson for Coolmore Stud, which owns One Cool Cat, said:

"Coolmore is obviously delighted - if not surprised - at the great start One Cool Cat has made to his stud career. I say 'not surprised' because the horse himself was, after all, a champion two-year-old, with all the speed and precocity that such a title requires. And our expectations were further raised when we saw first-hand the yearlings he had on offer at Karaka - stamped in their sire's image, well-grown, precocious, fast-looking animals."
