This filly is by the highly regarded Hinchinbrook, who was a seriously fast 2YO winning a Group 3 second-up and placing in two Group 1 races. He was the leading champion first season sire of 2014/2015, and has subsequently continued to produce star racehorses year after year.
Hinchinbrook has sired three Group 1 winners, including the undefeated 2YO Press Statement. Press Statement had 3 starts for 3 wins as a 2YO, including the Group 1 BTC J.J. Atkins Stakes. As a 3YO he went on to win the Caulfield Guineas, making him the only colt of his year to win a Group 1 as both a 2YO and 3YO. His other Group 1 winners include Seabrook, who won the Moet and Chandon Champagne Stakes as a 2YO and most recently Beat the Clock, who won the Centenary Sprint Cup at Sha Tin on January 21 2019.
Hinchinbrook is also the sire of Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint Winner Diamond Tathagata, and his group & stakes performers include the likes of Seabrook, Press Statement, Whispering Brook, Salsonic and Samara Dancer. At the Magic Millions Yearling Sales in 2019, 21 yearlings sold for an average of averaging $274,524.
At the Inglis Easter Sale in 2016, a colt by Hinchinbrook sold for $1 million, with his three yearlings selling for an average of $440, 000.
This is the sire line from heaven. Hinchinbrook is a three-quarter brother to leading leading Australian sire Snitzel and Group 3 winner Viennese, and is by champion sire Fastnet Rock from stakes-winning sprinter Snippets’ Lass. Fastnet Rock is a legend in his own right, producing 36 individual Group 1 winners and 5 Group 1 winning 2YOs since the start of 2016.
Koonoomoo was a top class race mare herself, being a Group 3 winner and Group 2 placed and the winner of over $460 000 in prize money.
Koonoomoo is out of the Rory’s Jester mare Masimova whose grand-dam, Embassadora, took out the Group 1 AJC Chipping Norton Stakes and Group 2 STC Apollo Stakes. She is also the dam of Group 3 winner Western Chorus who delivered Hong Kong champion Jeune King Prawn and the Listed winner, Creative Plan.
