One Cool Cat Arrives At Cambridge Stud

13 Aug 2008

One Cool Cat arrived safe and sound at Cambridge Stud today looking fit and well.

The exciting young stallion One Cool Cat already has a full book  this season and Sir Patrick said the quality of the mares is very high.

One Cool Cat was the leading New Zealand-based first season sire at the Karaka Yearling Sales earlier this year with his progeny selling for up to $925,000.

He also topped the sires list (by average 3 or more lots sold) at the annual South Island Sale of two-year-olds held in Christchurch earlier this month.

His first northern hemisphere crop have proved hugely successful this year, with three new season two-year-olds sold at the South Island Sale for an aggregate of $133,000 - representing an average price of $44,333.

The highest price paid for a One Cool Cat at the sale was $52,000 for a colt ex Sweetliner sold from the draft of Te Mania Thoroughbreds.

One Cool Cat, a dual Group 1 winning son of Storm Cat, is already the sire of 13 individual winners in the northern hemisphere - including four individual stakes winners.
