This colt was reared at one of the very best studs in Australia. Edinglassie Stud has built a reputation for producing superior racehorses and I always take particular attention to the yearlings the farm has to offer.

I have had good success purchasing from Edinglassie Stud with our very good fillies Savoureux, Eramor and Shine On Anna coming from the farm. I would like to have purchased more but often their yearlings are out of my reach.

Some of the horses reared on the farm include Shooting To Win, Deep Field, Nechita, Bentley Biscuit, God’s Own, Nadeem, Miss Margaret and Sharscay. This is quite a list for such a small farm., all outstanding Group 1 winners.

Shooting To Win

Shooting to Win has all the ingredients to make a successful sire. Firstly, he comes from an outstanding family and is out of one of the very best mares at stud in Australia. His sire Northern Meteor looked like being a super star but died prematurely which was a massive loss to the Australian breeding industry.

Secondly, he is an outstanding looking horse. He has terrific conformation and is as good a type as you are likely to see.

Thirdly, he was a very good racehorse with his time in winning the Caulfield Guineas being quicker than Redoute’s Choice and Lonhro. He is one of only three horses to win the Stan Fox Stakes / Caulfield Guineas double, the other two being Kenwood Melody and Lonhro.

Finally, he has started to get horses to the track with his daughter Intrepidacious being outstanding winning on debut. Recently, Mick Price stepped out an outstanding colt named Shotmaker in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude with him running a very impressive 2nd after travelling wide throughout. I have very strong mail about quite a few of Shooting To Win’s progeny from some very good sources.

On 8 January Godolphin stepped out an unraced 2yo at the Warwick Farm Barrier Trials and she looked very impressive. Her name is Tailleur. She bolted in.

It should be noted Shooting To Win didn’t have his first start until the end of May in his two year old year. He went on to win the Caulfield Guineas four months later.


The colt has an outstanding female line with this being the first foal of a ½ sister to the Group 1 performed mare Angel Of Mercy. This is the immediate family of the great mare Divine Madonna. She won four Group 1 races.

One of the things I like about this family is that it is current with plenty happening including French Girl’s recent win at Sandown.

Good families tend to continue to throw winners and given this colt’s conformation and physical attributes I’d be very disappointed if he didn’t make it as a racehorse.

I can’t wait for him to get to the races and he looks the right horse to kick off our training relationship with Michelle Payne.
