Freshman Profile

Unbeaten 2YO & Gr.1 winning 3YO sprinter by Fastnet Rock

  • Probably the fastest son of Fastnet Rock. Full-brother to 1200m Gr.2 winner Jolie Bay. Out of 1200m Group winning 2YO Legally Bay.
Just like Snitzel he’s a Gr.1 winning sprinter, by a son of Danehill and out of a Stakes winner by Snippets.

“The 1200m dash down the Flemington straight has long been considered a sire making race …Merchant Navy added his name to the roll in Saturday’s Coolmore, taking his place in history in spectacular fashion: weaving a passage over the final 100m to catch tearaway leader, Invincible Star, right on the wire. Even better still for connections, Merchant Navy has the pedigree to match his talent for speed.”, November 6, 2017

“one of the nation’s emerging sprinting superstars”, 4 November, 2017

“Fastnet Rock continues to excel both on the racecourse and in the sales ring and in Merchant Navy we are thrilled to have arguably his best sprinting son joining the roster following his stint with Aidan O’Brien in Europe.” Tom Magnier
