Seventh Heaven For One Cool Cat

 
10 May 2008

The Cambridge Stud shuttle sire
One Cool Cat (USA) (Storm Cat) continued the flying start he has made in Europe this season, with his seventh individual winner landing in Rome, Italy last Sunday.


Reiterating the success that has put One Cool Cat (USA) as the leading European sire of two-year-olds in Great Britain and Ireland, the promising 
Diglett (ex Rich Gift, by Cadeaux Genereux) showed his class with a comfortable one length win.


A $3.1 million Keeneland yearling,
One Cool Cat (USA) was a dual Gr.1 winning juvenile and was the Champion European 3YO Sprinter.



One Cool Cat (USA) was one of the best two-year-olds seen in Europe in 2003, and continued his outstanding form as a three-year-old, scoring an impressive win in the Gr. 3 Phoenix Sprint Stakes at the Curragh over 1200m, and finished a fine third in the Gr. 1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York.


Commencing stud duties in New Zealand in 2005,
One Cool Cat's (USA) first Southern Hemisphere crop made a big impression at the National Sale at Karaka earlier this year.



One Cool Cat (USA) was the leading New Zealand-based first season sire during the Premier session with 24 lots selling for $4,625,000 at an average of $192,708.



One Cool Cat's (USA) leading light was a filly out of the Gr.3 winning Sir Tristram mare
Diamond Cashel, who realised $925,000 - the second-top price of the sale.


The youngster is a half-sister to
Royal Asscher (NZ) (Gr III CS Hayes Stakes, Listed William Crockett, Ottawa Stakes), and was purchased by the free-spending Queenslander Nathan Tinkler, whose Patinack Farm also purchased a
One Cool Cat half-sister to the Gr.2 Winter Stakes winner
La Sizeranne for $640,000.



One Cool Cat (USA) will stand again at Cambridge Stud in 2008 at a service fee of NZ$15,000 + gst.
