The first horse since champion Mahogany in 1994 to complete the difficult Victoria Derby/Australian Guineas/Australian Derby treble, Hitotsu retired as one of Australian racing’s biggest stars.

“One of the most talented horses I’ve ever trained.”
Champion co-trainer Ciaron Maher on Hitotsu

Even more remarkably, Hitotsu won all three Group 1 Classics in succession, and became the only horse ever to win the 1600-metre Australian Guineas fresh, four months after his Flemington triumph. Past Australian Guineas winners include multiple Champion Sire Zabeel, Champion Sire Flying Spur and current Group 1 sire Shamus Award.

A month after the Guineas, Hitotsu won a fierce battle for the Australian Derby at Randwick, becoming the first 3YO since his new barnmate Dundeel to win three consecutive Australian Group 1 races.

“Each of Hitotsu’s three Group 1 victories is an exceptional performance, but together they put him in the very sparsely populated category of history-making champion.”
– John Messara, Owner & Chairman, Arrowfield Stud

Messara adds, “We’re proud to stand him as an Arrowfield-bred star returning home, a horse whose attributes and pedigrees we know thoroughly and can back enthusiastically with large numbers of our own mares. Along with the committed support of Hitotsu’s high-profile owners, that provides a solid platform for early-crop commercial success breeders can rely on.”
