Tyreel Cheer This Stakes-Winner Home
Breednet - Media Release - Thursday, 11 May 2017

All eyes were on South Australia last Saturday for that states premier race day and the SAJC Queen Adelaide Stakes held particular interest for the team from Tyreel Stud.

Tyreel Stud's homebred Indian Thunder overcame a torrid run to burst through and grab victory in the two year old stakes race and then had to withstand a double protest.

Lot 198 - Zoustar colt from Whisper BayIndian Thunder should technically be undefeated as he was first past the post at his debut at Bendigo but lost that race on protest to Grandioso who went on to win the Inglis Bonus 2 year old race at the Wagga carnival.

He was super impressive to pick himself up off the carpet and still win. Maestro trainer Darren Weir has high hopes for the colt in the Spring.

Indian Thunder is an Inglis Easter graduate sold through the Tyreel Stud draft for $140,000. He is by Golden Slipper sire Manhattan Rain and from the stakes winning mare Whisper Bay a daughter of Royal Academy .

Whisper Bay has a yearling colt by Zoustar being offered as Lot 198 at this weekend's Inglis Scone yearling sale. She foaled an outstanding filly by Hinchinbrook in 2016 and is due to foal to Teofilo in 2017.

Linda and Laurence Monds purchased the renowned boutique thoroughbred facility Tyreel Stud in 2014. They are off to a flying start breeding top class racehorses.

In their first year at Tyreel they foaled down just 12 mares. Out of these 12 foals they have already produced two stakes winning two year olds, this is an ultra-impressive strike rate.

Indian Thunder joins the Chris Munce trained Champ Elect as the other two year old stakes winner bred by Tyreel this season.

Champ Elect holds a special place in the Monds family's heart as his dam Champalou was the first mare they purchased at auction and the first foal born for them on their new farm.

Champalou has a weanling filly by Hallowed Crown and is in foal to Exosphere.

The results already achieved by the new team at Tyreel are very promising to say the least and we all know how important it is to buy yearlings from farms who breed stakeswinners.
