Lovely type who should develop early and will be targeted at Sydney’s 2YO Triple Crown before maturing into an ideal Guineas horse …
This is a big, strong colt with that extra bit of length you find in top racehorses. Importantly, he’s very well balanced and a beautiful mover. He appears to be the precocious type that should run early and will be aimed at Sydney’s 2YO Triple Crown series, which includes the world’s richest 2YO race, the $3.5 million Golden Slipper. The colt also looks to share many of the qualities of his sire who was a dual Group 1 winner as a 3YO, winning both the ‘sire making’ Golden Rose and Randwick Guineas.
This is the first HALLOWED CROWN yearling sold at auction and, given his athleticism, early speed, ability to perform at the highest level from 1200m to 2000m, and being a grandson of WINX’s sire STREET CRY, he has the industry excited.
Importantly, this colt is from a winning mare by another Group 1 winning sprinter/miler in TESTA ROSSA whose daughters have produced over 200 winners including 2016/17 star, GLOBAL GLAMOUR.
Meanwhile, the pedigree is of the highest order and includes close relations such as TULLY THUNDER, SUFFICIENT, ZAMZAM, IRISH FLAME, THUNDER LADY and 2017 spring Group winner, LEVENDI.
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 millions) 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 pedigree on the move!
This is definitely a ‘happening’ family … our colt is the first foal of MISS LOMBARDI, who was a talented winner in Victoria for former Champion trainer, PETER MOODY.
MISS LOMBARDI meanwhile, is a half sister to Group 1 winner of $420k in TULLY THUNDER, while other close relations include New Zealand 2YO black type winner SUFFICIENT, Group 2 winner and multiple Group 1 placed, THUNDER LADY, plus 2017 2YO stakes winner, IRISH FLAME and 2016 stakes winner and Group 1 Blue Diamond placed, ZAMZAM.
Yet another close relation is the exciting Pierro 3YO, LEVENDI (pictured below), who was one of the stars of the 2017 Melbourne spring, winning the prestigious Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes at Flemington on Derby Day.
And just to cap it off, the colt’s grand-dam, FLEUR DE CHINE was a Group 2 winning 2YO in New Zealand.
MISS LOMBARDI is by the brilliant sprinter/miler and influential broodmare sire, TESTA ROSSA, whose daughters have produced over 200 winners including 2016/17 racetrack sensation GLOBAL GLAMOUR.
This is a family from racing royalty that continues to produce top quality stakes-winning racehorses.
The match with HALLOWED CROWN provides this pedigree with a 4 x 4 to the immortal DANZIG (sire of Australian legend DANEHILL) and others bred along these lines include Melbourne Cup winner and sire SHOCKING and dual Group 1 winning 2YO and shuttle sire PRIDE OF DUBAI.
