The first foals by Spendthrift Australia’s Group 1 winning stallions Hampton Court, Jimmy Creed (USA) and Warrior’s Reward (USA) are earning high marks for their exceptional quality.
“They’re receiving high praise, and deservedly so,” Spendthrift’s general manager Garry Cuddy said. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the results and the support from around the country.”
Victorian breeder Gary O’Meara of Miranda Park is enthusiastic about the eye-catching foals on the ground by all three of Spendthrift’s stallions. “My clients and I have been big supporters of Spendthrift,” O’Meara said. “We have a lovely filly by Hampton Court out of Just Push On that is very strong through the shoulder and correct with great bone and a good body.
“The Jimmy Creed foals are very athletic and have inherited their sire’s great looks and quality, and the Warrior’s Reward out of Southern Tip has definitely been stamped. He is exactly like his sire in the head, and he is very correct with good leg.”
Spendthrift’s Redoute’s Choice colt Swear gave a great sight leading the G1 Victoria Derby field into the straight before finishing fifth at Flemington. “We had a nice run but got flushed out early,” jockey Tommy Berry said. “It was a good effort.”
In Sydney on Saturday, Fastnet Rock mare Cana won at Rosehill for Spendthrift and hours later Spendthrift’s Kentucky-bred Fastnet Rock filly Cover Song won the G3 Autumn Miss Stakes at Santa Anita.
Spendthrift champion Beholder will stand centre-stage in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Santa Anita this Friday, November 4. The 6yo daughter of Henny Hughes won 2012 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies & 2013 Breeders’ Cup Distaff.
