We are thrilled to have secured Lot 4 from the 2019 Inglis Easter Yearling Sales for $200,000. Lot 4 is a beautiful bay filly from the quality Queensland Highgrove Stud, a filly by the great Exceed and Excel out of Fate Rules.
Arguably one of Queensland’s best trainers, Toby Edmonds, will take this filly through her racing career. Last season Edmonds Racing had the incredible strike rate of 23.1% placing the stable in the top 3 Nationally in terms of winning strike rate and cemented him as not only one of Queensland’s but Australia’s leading thoroughbred trainers.
This combination is another great win for Queensland race fans, but also a win for all Australians who wish to take advantage of the Winter Racing in Australia
Toby Edmonds has always been known as a horseman with a good eye for a horse. Horses such as Houtzen, I am Invincible, Conquering Queen and Madame Pedrille are testament to that.
Toby has been surrounded by horses his whole life. He started in his teens learning his trade from renowned horseman such as Neville Begg and Peter Snowden based in Scone. And in 2011 he re-located permanently to his current Gold coast stables and each year he has increased his number of winners whilst maintaining his industry leading strike rate.
With recent wonder horse Houtzen, Edmonds racing is now following in a fellow Queenslander trainers footsteps, Peter Moody, and taking on the international field at Ascot. Houtzen is already making herself comfortable in Black Caviar’s old box at Ascot and Australian Jockey Kerrin McEvoy is booked to ride her in June.
Toby prides himself on detail and his set up and facilities now allow him to focus on the little details to make big success a reality.
This filly is by the highly regarded Exceed and Excel, he is one of Australia’s best stallions and the most successful sire of juvenile Stakes winners at stud. A lasting influence with 17 stallion sons with winners, the first two already sires of major G1 winners.
