Perth sprinter Revolition came to the end of a rewarding campaign last month and he is now enjoying a well earned break after banking $375,000 in prizemoney and Westspeed bonuses.
Revolition (3g Key Business-Prospect Sky by Silver Prospector) is currently the highest earner of Westspeed Bonuses ($120,000) in the history of the scheme. The previous leader was Dark Target with $107,000.
Revolition did not race at two but won three times in his first full prep earlier this season. He also earned black-type when placed behind Liquidation in the LR Placid Ark Stakes in November and then claimed the $100,000 South West Breeders Patrons Plate (1400m) at Bunbury in March.
“Considering the amount of racing he has endured as a three year old, he was in remarkable shape,” trainer Paul Jordan said.
Jordan trains Revolition for Harvey Crossman’s Lima Syndicate. He is a half brother to G2 Winterbottom Stakes winner Noble Sky (Chanteclair) and is a full brother to Belmont Guineas winner Volition.
The Key Business gelding was bred and sold by Robbie Gray’s Rangeview Stud for $25,000 at the 2007 Perth Magic Millions.
Key Business (Success Express) has sired 158 individual winners at a 57% winners-to-runners strike-rate. He stands at Rangeview alongside G2 winner Natural Blitz (Dehere) and newcomer So Secret (Danetime).
So Secret won five sprints in Perth and was a G3 winner of the Colonel Reeves Stakes at Ascot. He is a half-brother to G1 WATC Railway Stakes winner Covertly (Metal Storm) and Listed WATC December Stakes winner Secret Link (Encosta de Lago).
Their dam Most Secret (Bletchley Park) was a precocious filly winning early-season sprints in the Listed Queen’s Plate, Supremacy Stakes and Gimcrack Stakes.
So Secret will stand for an introductory service fee of $4,400 (inc gst) in 2009.
