One to Watch – Kembla

Tara Madgwick - Thursday June 25

Kerrin McEvoy had only one ride at Kembla on Thursday, but this talented three year-old made his effort worth the while when he bolted in by four and a half lengths.

Trained by Matthew Dunn and sporting the colours of Grahame and Linda Huddy’s Peachester Lodge, Fastnet Rock gelding Stormy Rock was a hot favourite for the 1200m maiden.

Fourth on debut at Newcastle last month and then second beaten a nose at Warwick Farm, Stormy Rock showed the benefit of race experience this time, doing everything right to travel on the pace before powering clear to win as he pleased.


A $200,

000 Inglis Easter purchase for Neil Jenkinson / Matthew Dunn Racing from the Lucas Bloodstock draft, Stormy Rock was bred by Newhaven Park and is a half-brother to Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Unencumbered.


Stormy Rock as a yearling

He is the sixth winner from seven to race from More Than Ready (USA) stakes-winner Blizzardly.

Daily Roundup For Thursday July 9
A quick overview of today's results covering maiden winners, first season sire placegetters, second season sire winners and highest priced winners.
First Season Sires Make Good Impression
The Inglis Australian Weanling Sale produced pleasing results for a number of first season sires despite the challenging market with five posting sales of $100,000 or more and five also featuring in the top 10 sires by average.
Melbourne Gold Oaklands Inspections Cancelled
On the advice of the Hume City Council and relevant health authorities, the Melbourne Gold Yearling Sale inspections scheduled for Oaklands from this coming Monday will no longer take place.
Best On Breeding
What a fascinating race to kick off proceedings at Rosehill on Saturday with the admirable blue-collar filly Lady Banff once again threatening to see off a field of bluebloods over 1100m.
He’s No Poor Relation
Blood can sometimes overcome pedigree to produce a seriously good horse.
Sire Profitability at Magic Millions 2020
Magic Millions 2020 has been well covered but we always find it interesting to take a look at the sires that returned the most profit for their supporters in terms of multiple of fee and straight profit.
Past Week's 2YO Trial Results
Plenty of interesting two year-old trials around the country in the past week so here are all the placegetters with their breeding and sale information.
Bell View Park Magic Mares 2020
South Coast bloodstock enterprise Bell View Park have built a reputation for meeting the market, which is important in the current economic climate and since their first draft of mares in 2017 have sold 67 out of 68 lots offered at the Magic Millions National Sale, which is good reason to see what they are offering in 2020.
Stormborn Makes it 11 for Headwater
Vinery Stud’s Headwater moved to within one win of tying long-time leader Spill The Beans for leading first season sire for number of winners when the filly Stormborn got the Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig partnership off to a flyer when successful in a 1000m maiden on the synthetic track at Packenham on Friday.
New Group I Winner for Invincible Spirit
He’s become one of the hottest sires of sires in the world, but the latest Group I winner for Invincible Spirit is progressive four year-old mare Nazeef, who landed the Group I Falmouth Stakes (1m) at Newmarket in the UK overnight.
