Fourth Stakes-Winner for Toronado
Tara Madgwick - Monday September 2
The success of sire sons of High Chaparral was highlighted in Australia last weekend with Group victories for Quick Thinker (So You Think) and Super Seth (Dundeel), while Swettenham Stud shuttler Toronado (IRE) chimed with a new stakes-winner in Germany on Sunday where Wasmya scored an impressive Black Type win.

ToronadoA lightly raced homebred filly for Al Shaqab Racing, Wasmya scored a dominant three and a half length win over a big field of 14 in the seven furlong Listed Stadt Baden-Baden Viererwette.

Trained by Francis-Henri Graffard, Wasmya has three wins from four starts and is a half-sister to stakes-placed Talbah from well bred Danehill Dancer mare Lamorlaye, who comes from the family of European Horse of the Year Dylan Thomas and Champion 2YO Queens Logic and Group I winner Homecoming Queen.

She is the fourth stakes-winner for outstanding miler Toronado, who is back at Swettenham Stud this spring at a fee of $27,500.

Toronado has made a pleasing start to the new season with his three winners in August including undefeated filly Sassy Salitage, a very promising member of the Greg Eurell stable.
