Adrenaline Thoroughbreds offer an opportunity to buy into a strong, athletic and nice moving son of the flying machine, Winning Rupert, from the Gr.2 Queensland Guineas winner Express Air. This colt is the younger brother of Simply Fly, winner of his past 5 in a row including the 500k 3YO QTIS Jewel in March.

Winning Rupert is arguably the speediest son of Written Tycoon, the sire of Capitalist, Ole Kirk, Pippie and Written By, making him one of the hottest stallions in Australia. In a short career of only 6 starts, Winning Rupert set two track records for 1200m and 1300m at Eagle Farm and won the G.2 Champagne Classic at Doomben and was just 0.1 of a second off Takeover Target’s track record before running 4th in the Magic Millions Guineas as odds-on favourite. He was retired to stud duties after pulling up with an injury in the Magic Millions race.

Doing a great job during his early stages at stud with 2 winners from his first 5 runners (Shalaa 2 winners from 13 runners, Capitalist 2 winners from 18 runners), including filly Hi Hi Hi, who dominated in a 5 length win at Canterbury.

The colt’s dam, Express Air, was a quality filly who won the Gr.2 Queensland Guineas over 1600m at Eagle Farm, and who is from the family of Diamondsondinside, Bergerac and Heaven’s Deal.

Bred by Eureka Stud on the Darling Downs, this colt was born and raised on the famous black soil country that’s produced Spirit of Boom, Temple of Boom, Pippie, Tinto, Outback Barbie and Boomsara. You can watch Rob Heathcote chatting with Scott McAlpine about this colt in the attached video.

Nominated for the rich QTIS, BOBS and Magic Millions bonus schemes. On-goings charged at $190 fixed monthly fees – No surprises! Share price includes all costs up to 31st March 2021. This includes purchase price, GST, 12 months insurance, Pre-sale vet inspections, Magic Millions race series, Golden Slipper, QTIS, transport and all holding costs until 31st March.
