KINLOCH BRAE (Craigie Mo Town x Greys Free Style) was an explosive beginner in the US that won 29 races from 71 starts at the top level. His crowning glory was blowing away a top class field in the Derby Lane Sprint Classic Final in 2008. He was then moved to Ireland to stand at stud and has been a sensation in Ireland already siring the 2011 Irish Derby winner, Razldazl George. In Australia he has hit the ground running with his first crop producing three runners in the Group 1 Perth Cup! His most recent star in the making is Angie Rocks who is the favourite in this week’s Group 1 Sapphire Crown.
GOLDEN LEMON is a daughter of Hall of Famer Bombastic Shiraz and out of prolific producer Lemon Cruiser. She is a full sister to multiple city winners and should have been a city winner herself but tragically tore her monkey muscle in the race as she was closing down on the leader. Whist Golden Lemon’s career record does not look flash (6 placings from 15 starts) she no doubt had ability to run quick times (ran 27.58secs Horsham coming from last) but invariably found trouble due to her poor starting ability. She was a very strong runner and fierce chaser that needed time to wind up but due to a series of niggling injuries and trouble within races she did not get the wins on the board she deserved.
Cindy broke in nicely and is now in pre-training under the care of James Sheahan in Victoria's west at Grassmere, just outside of Warrnambool.
