MM: Savabeel/Nina From Pasadena Colt - $220,000

PROVEN CROSS: This colt is a full-brother to PASADENA GIRL, SAVABEEL’s only Group 1 winning two-year-old. That filly won the Champagne Stakes in Sydney and was the first foal of REDOUTE’S CHOICE mare and three-time winner NINA FROM PASADENA. She has produced three foals to race for three winners with the three-year-old scoring since the sale.

His Cox Plate winning sire is continuing to dominate the Australasian racing scene with 67 stakes winners to date and three New Zealand Champion Sire titles. His progeny include Derby winner SANGSTER, six-time Group 1 winner KAWI and Queen Elizabeth winner LUCIA VALENTINA to name a few.

SAVABEEL has had eight black-type two-year-old winners and with this cross proven at two, and given the athletic nature of this colt, we have high expectations that this bloke will be up-and -running early for his owners.

For more information about this colt contact us via email at sales@dannyobrienracing.com.au.

MM: All Too Hard/Nobody Gets Colt - $120,000

SPRING 3YO: This colt is out of winning mare NOBODY GETS, who is a half-sister of Group 3 winner MUSIDORA, the dam of Golden Slipper placegetter and Group winner TULIP and Caulfield Classic winner SACRED EYE. This bloke is the dam’s third foal and the female line of his pedigree boasts Champion Sires FLYING SPUR and ENCOSTA DE LAGO.

His sire is BLACK CAVIAR’s four-time Group 1 winning half-brother ALL TOO HARD, who has already produced a stakes winner in his first crop as well as multiple stakes performers. His stunning sire won the Caulfield Guineas, CF Orr, Futurity and All Aged Stakes as well as finishing runner-up in the Cox Plate.

Like most of ALL TOO HARD’s progeny so far we wouldn’t be expecting to push him as a two-year-old, however we expect that he will be beautiful Spring three-year-old. Another positive is that this colt is Super Vobis qualified.

For more information about this colt contact us via email at sales@dannyobrienracing.com.au.


CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK: This colt reminded us of his dual Group 1 winning sire SHAMUS AWARD and we just had to have him. His dad gave us some great memories as a three-year-old with front-running displays of sustained speed to win the Cox Plate and the Australian Guineas. The son of SNITZEL raced at the top level throughout his two and three year-old seasons and it’s worth noting that the first-season sire was the first colt home in his edition of the Blue Diamond and Caulfield Guineas. His eldest progeny are now two-year-olds.

This colt's dam is Australia Day, a SEBRING mare that was stakes placed during her racing career which included a win at two. She hails from the family of Group 1 winner KERMADEC, Group 3 winner TRIPLE ELEGANCE, the stable’s very own Manifold Stakes winner AT THE HEADS. This colt is her first foal.

He is a very athletic neat colt that looks to have inherited every bit of his father’s physical attributes and we are very confident that we will look back at the price we paid as a bargain for him in the future.

NICE TYPE: This colt is by Champion First Season Sire of 2014-15 HINCHINBROOK who has had a excellent start to his stud career. Twice a winner at two himself, the sire has produced 193 runners for 115 winners with 11 stakes winners, including two-year-old Group 1 winner PRESS STATEMENT.

HIDDEN MESSAGE is the dam of this colt, a Pentire mare we trained to multiple city wins during her racing career. She was a gorgeous middle distance mare that has thrown lovely types so far as we had the fortune to see her first foal, a two-year-old named Phoneme, trial impressively at Flemington in the past fortnight.

Having seen the type of horse that the two-year-old had grown into made our decision easy to commit to this colt as he is a lovely looking yearling that looks like he will grow into a sprinter/miler of substance.

DE LITTLE SIS: When you find a horse like DE LITTLE ENGINE you are always take note of the family to see if you can find one similar to him. This filly is very much like him – she is a lovely neat strong style of staying type. We have kept a close eye on all of VRC Oaks winner ARAPAHO MISS’ progeny since The Engine and this girl is the closest we have found to the our nine-time winner.

Add that to the fact this filly is by emerging staying sire RELIABLE MAN who had a terrific Spring Carnival, and has already produced three stakes winner from his first crop including Australian Guineas bound MAIN STAGE.

She has quality written all over her and given her pedigree she will get every chance to emulate her brother’s staying prowess during her racing career. Add that with the prizemoney increases for staying events in Victoria over the next few seasons a filly like this is the perfect fit for anyone looking to have fun with a staying style of horse.

For more information about this filly contact us via email at sales@dannyobrienracing.com.au.


FAMILIAR FAMILY: This colt is out of city winner ROLLING IN THEDEEP, who is half-sister to Group 1 performer and Group 2 winner CENTENNIAL PARK and our own Group 1 WA Derby runner-up and Group 3 winner BALLACK and 2yo city winner Awake in Grinzing. His direct female line includes Group 3 winner PROCRASTINATE, who turn produced South African Champion Sprinter and Group 1 winner LAISSERFAIRE, as well Group winners A TIME FOR JULIA, TIME THIEF, FOREPLAY and PERSONIFY.

The classy colt is from the first crop five-time Group 1 winner DISSIDENT. His sire turned up season after season at the top level having won a Blue Diamond Preview at two, finished runner up in Gold Rose as a Spring 3yo before winning the Randwick Guineas in the autumn. As an older horse trained on to win the WFA features in Sydney (All Aged Stakes) and Melbourne (Makybe Diva, Memsie & CF Orr).

We love this family and this horse really fits the same mould of the performers on his pedigree page which has us very keen on his future given the price we were able to secure him at.

For more information about this colt contact us via email at sales@dannyobrienracing.com.au.


BARGAIN: This colt is from the first-crop of four-time Group 1 winner SACRED FALLS. The O’REILLY stallion won the NZ Two Thousand Guineas at three before training on to win two Doncaster Handicaps and a George Main Stakes at weight-for-age level. The stable has strong links to the sire’s family as his dam IGUAZU’S GIRL is a half-sister to SPLASHING OUT, who we trained to win a Group 3 and place at Group 1 level, before she produced black-type fillies SHOPAHOLIC and Spending that also graced our training barn.

His dam is the unraced ZABEEL mare SHE’S GOODLOOKIN, who is a half-sister to Group 3 winner and Group 1 placegetter PURE THEATRE and whose family has produced black-type performers Elusive King, American Dream and Prince Harada.

The mare hasn’t had a lot of luck in her early breeding career, but we bought the two-year-old O’REILLY half-brother last year and he has shown us enough to have us excited about securing this bloke at such a bargain price.
