International Group 1 sprinter One World has been purchased to stand at Larneuk Stud in Euroa.
The John Moore trained galloper was one of the most consistent sprinters in Hong Kong after graduating from the Baramul Stud draft for $150,000 at the 2006 Gold Coast Magic Millions.
One World (7h Danehill Dancer – River Serenade by Hurricane Sky) won 8 races up to 1400m and earned the equivalent of AUD 2.26 million for owner Jackson So Hoi Wing. His career highlight came in the G2 Hong Kong Jockey Club Sprint at Sha Tin in November 2010 when he dead-heated with Rocket Man.
He retired after being beaten by South African bred sprinter Sweet Sanette and world champion Sacred Kingdom in a three-way finish to the G3 Bauhinia Sprint Trophy in April 2011.
One World was also Group 1 placed in the Golden Shaheen in Dubai and Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Sprint at Sha Tin.
He is a Danehill Dancer half-brother to the high-class sprinter First Command. Their dam River Serenade is a sister to G1 Oakleigh Plate winner River Dove and a half-sister to the dam of the high-class sprinter Kulgrinda.
“I had been chasing One World for some time and it was a great relief to finally get the deal done,” Larneuk owner Neville Murdoch said. “He is just the type of stallion the commercial market is looking for with Danehill Dancer already a champion sire of two-year-olds and his son Choisir doing an outstanding job.
“One World represents the Danehill sireline and is from an Australian family synonymous with speed and class. He’s also an extremely handsome horse and we’ve priced more than fairly at $6,600.
One World joins a Larneuk Stud roster that comprised Tsigane (Anabaa), Bramshaw (Encosta de Lago) and first-season sire O’Lonhro (Lonhro) last year.
