Son of One Cool Cat Set for Gr.1 Manikato

14 Aug 2010

Winter King (ex Something Special, by Bletchingly) became the tenth black type winner for former Cambridge Stud based sire One Cool Cat when winning yesterday’s STC Starlight Stakes-LR at Rosehill Gardens.


Prepared by David Payne, who also saddled up the second horse Centennial Park, Winter King has now won 7 of his 17 starts for prize money of A$329,605.


Bred by Peter Gillespie and Bill Gleeson, Winter King was sold by Wellfield Lodge for the $175,000 at the 2008 Karaka Premier Sale.  The buyer was Les Samba.

According to post-race reports, Winter King could have his next outing in the fortnight in the STC Concorde Stakes-Gr.3 (1100m).  Safely through that assignment the recently-gelded son of One Cool Cat could be sent to Melbourne for the Manikato Stakes-Gr.1 (1200m) at Moonee Valley, 24 September.
