About 15 years ago I decided to purchase some weanlings and syndicate them. This helped some of our owners stay in racing as the cost of yearlings began to get out of their reach.

This strategy has been very successful with some of our weanling purchases being the excellent racehorses Too Many Reds, Eramor, Believe 'n Achieve, Faith 'n Courage, Invincible Al and our current winners Miss Divine Em, Mr Cashman and Gaga's Belle.

The cost of getting into weanlings is about 50 to 75% of what it would cost if they were sold as yearlings.

I was thrilled but equally surprised when I secured this stunning weanling filly by the exciting young sire Hellbent. I was convinced she would make $125,000 and had left the Magic Millions Sales Complex and received a call saying she had been passed in. I immediately drove back and purchased her.

She is a very athletic filly. She is a great walker and has a good hindquarter. The progeny of Hellbent have impressed me but to be honest most were out of my reach. I am sending a mare I own to Hellbent on the back of what I have seen at the sales and the report I received from the breaker on the rising two year old I purchased last year. I can’t imagine they won’t run.
Hellbent was a very fast horse by the super sire I Am Invincible. I was at Moonee Valley the night he won the Group 1 William Reid Stakes and he was also placed in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate. He had an explosive turn of foot and has a great pedigree which is free of Danehill. This sees him as an excellent cross for the mores from this sire line in Australia.

First Channel is by the ill-fated Hinchinbrook. He had a great pedigree and I expect he will be a sought after broodmare sire in the years ahead.

First Channel comes from the family of Australian Broodmare of the Year Twiglet. The second dam is by Dr Grace by Sir Tristram and 3rd dam by the super broodmare influence Bletchingly. I love this pedigree.

There are Group 1 horses everywhere in this pedigree including Hong Kong Champion Fairy King Prawn, Easy Rocking, Cosmic Endeavour and Kubrick.

First Channel is a young mare which I like. Her first foal is a filly by Flying Artie which is yet to be named.

The filly will head to the breakers in February and then spell before heading to Patrick Payne who has done a remarkable job with weanlings I have sent him in the past.
