YARRAMAN Park Stud principals Arthur and Harry Mitchell and their clients are enjoying great recent success with emerging stallion I Am Invincible, while the stud’s stalwart Magic Albert and up-and-comer Hinchinbrook are also turning out their share of winners. Yarraman Park is gearing for Easter with a stellar draft, one which kicks off with “a very attractive” Fastnet Rock colt.

From a strong American family, Lot 31 is out of Lovingonyourmind (USA) (Storm Cat) and is bred on the same Fastnet Rock/Storm Cat cross as Foxwedge and Irish Lights. He is out of a daughter of US Champion Three Year-Old Filly Farda Amiga and carries a 4fx5m cross of His Majesty. “He is a strong-bodied colt very much in the Foxwedge/Hinchinbrook mould,” said Harry Mitchell. 

Through the ring just three lots later, Lot 34 is a Lonhro filly out of the triple Listed winner Madame Pedrille (Secret Savings) who won five races to 1200m. The dam is a half-sister to Gr.1 winner Diamond Drille and Listed winner M’Lady Pedrille and it’s the family of Group winners Mamzelle Pedrille, O’Lonhro and I Am Invincible. Boasting duplications of influential mare Misty Morn and champion sire Mr. Prospector, she is described as “a typical Lonhro filly, not overly big but well balanced with great hindquarters.” 

Next up is Lot 85, a first crop colt by European Champion Sprinter Dream Ahead (USA). He is the first foal of Coolmore Classic-Gr.1 winner Ofcourseican (Mossman) from the family of recent stakes winners Gregers and Girl Guide, and his second and third dams are by Golden Slipper winners Canny Lad and Marauding. “He is an attractive colt with similar markings to his sire, he is very much a sprinting type,” said Harry. 

Two lots later is a Lonhro colt (Lot 87) out of the four times stakes placed Oh So Discreet (Bluebird), dam of Australasian Oaks-Gr.1 winner Maybe Discreet and Gr.3 winner Just Discreet. “A lovely colt with scope, a good action and powerful hindquarter. Not hard to see why the mare has done such a good job.” 

Another impressive Fastnet Rock is Lot 103, a filly out of Alinghi’s stakes placed sister Perfect Persuasion (Encosta de Lago) whose first two foals Lady Sharapova and Papillon are stakes placed. “A lovely big strong filly, very much like Lady Sharapova. A magnificent yearling with great action.” 

The family of Oakleigh Plate-Gr.1 winner and sire Snippets and Golden Slipper-Gr.1 winner Forensics is represented by Lot 115, a Sebring colt out of Princess Natural (Danehill Dancer), a half-sister to Listed winner and Golden Slipper runner-up (to Forensics) Zizou from the prolific Easy Date family. “A good sized colt with scope and great presence. An attractive three year-old type.” 

Lot 136 by Yarraman Park’s I Am Invincible out of Rivers Secret (Flying Spur) is a half-brother to the stakes placed Peace No War out of a daughter of Listed winner Ride The Rapids, dam of River Dove, in turn dam of exciting Headwater. “An outstanding colt, the image of his sire and he should make a two year-old.” 

By another proven stallion in Snitzel, the bay filly, who will enter the Newmarket ring as Lot 144, is the first foal for the Listed winner Royal Commands (Commands) from the family of triple Gr.2 winner Bundy Lad and Hong Kong Gr.1 winner Self Flit. “A big strong filly, an outstanding type with great girth and presence.” 

Fastnet Rock’s talented young son Hinchinbrook (a half-brother to Snitzel) has some nice Easter yearlings including Lot 152, a colt out of the Gr.3 winner Saint Minerva (Galileo) from the family of Gr.1 filly Rhythmic Charm. “He is a great mover, a strong colt bred on the successful Danehill/Galileo cross.” Lot 185, a colt by High Chaparral (IRE) out of Silk Veil (Danehill), is a half-brother to the talented Gr.1 second Scratchy Bottom out of a Gr.2 placed daughter of the triple stakes winner Lady of Persia, second dam of Gr.1 winners Zabrasive and Cheeky Choice. “Typical of High Chaparral, a good mover with lots of natural strength and a terrific hindquarter.” 

Described by Harry Mitchell as “impossible to fault,” Lot 191 is a first crop filly by Fastnet Rock’s William Reid Stakes-Gr.1 winner Foxwedge from Sleepy Hollow (Carnegie), a half-sister to Listed winner Citirecruit, dam of South African Gr.3 winner Royalsecuritybaby. “A lovely type of filly. A strong and very fluent mover.” Lot 200 is a Snitzel colt out of the Listed winner Speedy Bell (Brocco), dam of the Gr.3 filly Speedy Natalie. Carrying three strains of Dewhurst Stakes-Gr.1 winner Lunchtime, he is a “deep girthed colt with real presence and a wonderful temperament.” 

The only yearling by wonderful European sire Invincible Spirit (sire of I Am Invincible) in the sale, Lot 254, is out of Zarzuela (IRE) (Rock of Gibraltar), a half-sister to Gr.1 winner Glass Harmonium. “An attractive, very racy filly with a deep pedigree,” said Mitchell of this filly whose second and third dams are Gr.1 producers by Darshaan and Sadler’s Wells. 

“She looks like a two year-old already,” Mitchell said of Lot 265, a Medaglia d’Oro filly out of Admiring (Street Cry), a Group placed half-sister to Listed winner Empire Dancer. “She is a big filly with scope and has a great action.” Lot 268, by another talented first crop son of Fastnet Rock in Smart Missile, is a colt from one of Canada’s best families and is from the Machiavellian mare Alalunga (USA). This yearling half-brother to the stakes placed Almindoro is out of a daughter of the Gr.1 winner Classic Reign (Vice Regent), second dam of South African star Jackson, a triple Gr.1 winner. “A very athletic colt, he moves well.” 

Lot 380 is a filly by international champion and first crop sire So You Think (NZ) out of the Group placed Elimbari (Fastnet Rock), daughter of stakes winner Shalt Not, who produced flyer Amelia’s Dream. “A horse with tremendous girth and hindquarter, he looks very precocious, but with that So You Think quality.” 

Lot 419 is another nice filly by leading sire Snitzel out of the imported stakes winner Get Ready Bertie (USA) (More Than Ready) whose dual Group-winning dam De Bertie produced two Gr.3 winners. “A very mature filly with great girth, she looks like a real runner; bred on the successful Danehill/More Than Ready cross.” 

Inbred 4mx4m to champion sire Mr. Prospector is Lot 456, a More Than Ready colt out of the multiple city winner and Group placed Jalsah (Elusive Quality- Alqwah by Danehill). From the family of Gr.1 winner King’s Chapel, this fellow is also bred on the More Than Ready/ Danehill cross. “A neat strong colt with lots of depth, typical of the stallion.” Lot 467 is a chestnut filly from the first crop of Dubawi’s Gr.1 winner Poet’s Voice (GB). From Seven Stars (King’s Best), this yearling is a half-sister to Gr.2 winner Happy Galaxy and out of a daughter of Gr.1 mare Porto Roca, dam of Dubai World Cup-Gr.1 hero Monterosso (also by Dubawi). “She looks like a Dubawi, very correct with lovely strong hocks.” 

Lot 470 is a bay filly by Star Witness out of Snow Blitz (Zabeel), daughter of the Golden Slipper-Gr.1 heroine Polar Success from the prolific Circles of Gold family. “A filly with scope who has thrown to Zabeel with great length and quality.” 

“A neat colt very like his sire,” is Lot 493, a Foxwedge out of Wooden Melody (Woodman). The dam is a half-sister to Gr.1 winner Emerald Dream and to the second dam of Shooting to Win and Deep Field. This is the wonderful Eight Carat (GB) family. Lot 502, by Hinchinbrook, is a filly out of Advantage Receiver (Giant’s Causeway), a daughter of the Gr.1 sprinter Miss Kournikova, dam of Gr.3 winner Oakleigh Girl. “A very strong filly who looks like a two year-old with great girth and hindquarter.” 

The progeny of Gr.1 winner Foxwedge are bound to be in demand and another well related youngster of his is Lot 517, a half-sister to two city winners out of Brave Choice (Dr Fong) a daughter of Queensland Derby-Gr.1 and Queensland Oaks-Gr.1 winner Bravery, dam of nine winners including Brave Prince and Valourina. A descendant of influential broodmare La Troienne, she is “a good moving filly from a great Australian family.” 

The much-missed Northern Meteor is represented by Lot 559, a brown filly who is the second foal for multiple city winner Kiss ‘n Chase (Red Ransom) from the family of stakes winners Icy Calm and The Big Chill. “A filly with loads of scope who will develop into a magnificent three year-old.” Rounding off Yarraman Park’s Easter draft is Lot 566, a colt by I Am Invincible out city winner Luvumor (Flying Spur), a daughter Mam’selle Giselle, a sister to Gr.1 winner Baryshnikov, a half-sister to champion sire Zabeel and from the family of the exciting Hallowed Crown. “A late foal, he is very well balanced with a lovely head, a very attractive colt.”
