Weekend Wrap Up 3.09.18

It was a super weekend at the races for Curraghmore graduates, with two stakes winners in Australia, a debut winner in New Zealand, and a winner in Hong Kong.

Goko (O'Reilly) made it four wins over the weekend when successful at Sha Tin over 1000m.  The Nearco Stud bred five-year-old has hit his straps of late winning three of his last four starts.

Goko was the top priced weanling when sold by Curraghmore in 2014 at the New Zealand Bloodstock Sale, and went on to be the sale topping Ready To Run 2yo when sold by Ascot Farm the following year.

Unforgotten (Fastnet Rock) was pure class when taking out the Gr.2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick.  

Bred by the Coolmore connected Roncon, Unforgotten was sold by Curraghmore in 2016 for $360,000 at the New Zealand Bloodstock Premier Sale. 

“She was a filly with a lot of scope, she moved well and she’s from a very good family,” Gordon Cunningham said. “The Fastnet Rock-Galileo cross has proved exceptional. She was selected by Guy Mulcaster and Chris Waller has given her time to mature, he’s doing a brilliant job."

Theanswermyfriend (High Chaparral) brought up a winning hat trick after making an inter-state trip to contest the Listed Penny Edition Stakes (1400m) at Morphettville.

“We sold him as a yearling to Aquanita for $70,000,” Cunningham said. “He’s a terrific horse and he’s had a bit of tough year with a couple of stable changes, but each time he runs he leaves the tank empty and still finds the line. He’s obviously got a great constitution.”

Now trained by Darren Weir, Theanswermyfriend has lined up three times in the last four weeks and found the line each time a winner.  Curraghmore will offer the three-quarter brother by So You Think at Karaka in 2019.

Connections have every right to be excited about the prospects of debut winner Loose Cannon (Tavistock).  The Ruakaka winner was selected by bloodstock agent Sheamus Mills as a weanling from the draft of Brighthill Farm and was sold as a yearling at Karaka by Curraghmore when purchased by Go Racing for $150,000.

The three-year-old filly won both her trials leading in to the race and looks an exciting prospect for the future.
