Karaka 2012 Premier Session - Lot 494, Fastnet Rock ex The Nightingale (Stravinsky) colt


Photo taken 06 December

Not only is this colt by one of Australasia’s hottest sires right now, being by Fastnet Rock from a Stravinsky mare, he’s bred on exactly the same cross as Mosheen, winner of this season’s VRC Oaks-Gr.1 and placed second in last season’s Golden Slipper Stakes-Gr.1.

This colt is a half-brother to New Leader (Keeper), a dual winner to date in Hong Kong.  The Nightingale is herself a half-sister to Beat The Fade who won the AJC Emancipation Stakes-Gr.2 and was placed in both the STC Coolmore Classic-Gr.1 and VATC One Thousand Guineas-Gr.1.

 

Fastnet Rock is responsible for siring both the Australian and New Zealand 1000 Guineas winners this season; namely Atlantic Jewel and Planet Rock.
