A sharp individual from a dynamic family of 2YO winners. . .
A graceful mover and a strong, powerful physique, this colt looks an outstanding prospect by a sire that was unbeaten at 2 and from a family with top class 2YO form in abundance. He is a very well balanced, smooth moving colt who TICKS EVERY BOX.
He was our main target from the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale so we are delighted to have secured him for our team!
HALLOWED CROWN is an exciting first season sire, being unbeaten at 2 and a two-time Group 1 winner over 1400m and the mile, while he is also a grandson of WINX’s sire STREET CRY!
The list of top rank two-year-old performers in the family is endless. Household names such as Champion 2YO’s FORENSICS & ZIZOU as well as this year’s impressive Golden Slipper runner-up OOHOOD and Stakes winning two-year-old and now leading sire NOT A SINGLE DOUBT are products of this wonderful family!
The breeding cross is quickly emerging as a potent source of top class talent, with 11 Stakes performers in the last four years being bred on this STREET CRY / REDOUTE’S CHOICE cross, including STAY WITH ME, who defeated JAMEKA by one and three-quarter lengths in the Group 1 1000 Guineas at Caulfield.
This colt is bred on a very similar pattern to brilliant 2YO and Snowden trained PRIDE OF DUBAI (Group 1 Blue Diamond & Group 1 Sires Produce Stakes winner and now stallion) as well as SHOCKING (Group 1 Melbourne Cup & Group 1 Australia Cup winner and now stallion).
An exciting sire, a precocious two-year-old family, and bred on a successful cross of talent and a cracking physical type – this colt is destined to be a star on the racetrack!
“Honest, professional, dependable – and boy could he run!” – James Cummings on Hallowed Crown
Outstanding athlete, undefeated as a 2YO, multiple Group One winner at 3, competitive at the highest level from 1200m to 2000m, great pedigree and a grandson of Winx’s sire, Street Cry …
HALLOWED CROWN was a stunning colt who won his only starts as a 2YO, including the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes at Randwick defeating subsequent Group 2 winner, Washington Heights. Only lightly raced, HALLOWED CROWN would win 6 of his 9 outings and always raced in top company.
HALLOWED CROWN won his first start at 3 – the Group 3 Run To The Rose – before joining an illustrious group of Champion racehorses and leading sires by capturing the Group 1 Golden Rose. After a 4th to Brazen Beau in the Group 2 Roman Consul, HALLOWED CROWN then peeled off successive victories in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (defeating Group 1 Doncaster Handicap and Group 1 George Main winner Kermadec) and Group 1 Randwick Guineas (defeating Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win), before a third (beaten just over a length) in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas.
It’s important to note that HALLOWED CROWN competed against racing’s elite (BRAZEN BEAU, KERMADEC and SHOOTING TO WIN are all highly prized stallions) and was competitive from 1200m to 2000m.
HALLOWED CROWN is the best performed colt of USA’s Champion 2YO and Kentucky Derby winner STREET SENSE, who has produced 53 stakes winners of over $70 million and is, in turn, the most successful son of WINX’s sire STREET CRY (115 stakes winners of $160 million) whose other sire sons in Australia include Street Boss and Pride of Dubai.
Notably, HALLOWED CROWN is from the Group winner and Group 1 Golden Slipper runner-up, CROWNED GLORY who has produced 7 Winners from 7 to race including Sydney Group winner and promising sire, NEEDS FURTHER.
Significantly, HALLOWED CROWN hails from the family of legendary sire, ZABEEL (166 stakes winners).
We are delighted to be offering this son of HALLOWED CROWN, and he is showing all the right signs to make a flying start on the racetrack.
A pure 2YO speed family!
The list of top class 2YO runners to emerge from this family is endless. SUNDAZE herself is a ¾ sister to two-year-old Stakes winners NOT A SINGLE DOUBT, and COME HITHER, with the former now a leading sire and the latter placed in the Gimcrack Stakes and dam of Blue Diamond Preview winner COHESION. She is also a ½ sister to the three-time Stakes placed BREAKFAST IN BED and this year’s Golden Slipper and Sires Produce runner-up OOHOOD!
Champion 2YO’s FORENSICS (pictured) and ZIZOU are present on the pedigree page, as well as Group 1 Sires Produce and Magic Millions winner and Champion 3YO SNIPPETS, Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner REWAAYA and Group 1 Doomben Cup winner SENSE OF OCCASION.
SUNDAZE has already proved herself a high-class producer, with the Stakes placed MISS STRATHALLAN second in a Listed race at Caulfield, and a close-up fourth in the Group 2 Autumn Classic at the same venue.
SUNDAZE is by Champion Sire REDOUTE’S CHOICE, who is also a world class broodmare sire. His mares have produced 71 Stakes winners, 10 at Group 1 level, with eight of those arriving in the last three years and include SACRED FALLS, ZOUSTAR, KEMENTARI, ACE HIGH, D’ARGENTO, LEVENDI, THE MISSION, INFERENCE & PASADENA GIRL!
STAY WITH ME is yet another Group 1 winner out of a REDOUTE’S CHOICE mare, with our colt bred on the exact same STREET CRY/REDOUTE’S CHOICE cross, which has produced 11 Stakes performers in the last four years!
This family is sharp and precocious, with an abundance of 2YO form in the family – and it’s reflective in this colt who is a strong and powerful type. From FORENSICS to SNIPPETS, NOT A SINGLE DOUBT to ZIZOU – the family is a production line of world class juveniles!
