Weekend Escape

Lovely mare from first crop by Helmet that made $170k as a yearling at Melb Prem.

As you’d expect with Snippets and E&E bloodlines, she was a genuine speed horse never racing over more than 1100m.
She won her first two races for Robbie Griffiths stable. After a spell she rose in grade to 3 runs at Vic City grade beaten ½ len into 2nd and an unlucky 5th in BM78. She started 18/19 season as runner up on 3 occasions again at the highly competitive Vic City grade. She then bled and was transferred to Lloyd Kennewell stable where she placed twice in 3 runs before telling him she’d had enough. Being retired to breeding barn as 5yo after just 15 starts.

It’s a quality black type family being a half-sister to the Gr. 3 winner Broken and the stakes placed Sunday Escape. There are fillies in the family so scope for further upgrades to the page.

She is in foal to Australia’s unluckiest horse in Spieth beaten a lip twice in Gr1 sprints. He will add substance to the mating and this speed on speed cross should produce a powerful short coupled yearling ideal for the Australia market. We have a lovely Spieth foal on farm that has inherited his sires movie star head. Spieth’s sire Thorn Park was the youngest horse since Zabeel to win NZ Champion Sire (form just 4 crops). His sons Jimmy Choux and Ocean Park are enjoying success in the barn and we expect Spieth to do likewise.

It’s a nice early (17/9/19) cover so as a young mare you can expect a good run of foals.

Reluctant sale but we’ve moved mares down from the Hunter and need to reduce numbers.

Additional images and video are available for genuine buyers.

Inspections are also welcomed
