This PUBLISHING gelding has already shown he’s got the goods. We bought him at the Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale. This is a run up sale, showcasing young horses who have already been broken in and educated. The horses are breezed up, showing their fitness and action in a gallop that is timed over the final furlong (200 metres). We came home with this terrific PUBLISHING x Dodgette horse, who had the 14th fastest breeze up time of 229 lots, running home in 10.39 seconds. And he was able to achieve this despite running greenly, which shows he has plenty of scope to improve with further education. You can view his breeze up here

This horse is an indisputable athlete. His physique has all the hallmarks of a sprinter/miler – well-developed shoulder and forearm, muscular hindquarters, and strength across his back. He has great depth of girth and a big-barrelled torso which allows for the requisite heart and lung capacity to make a racehorse. He is structurally correct to support the rigours of racing, and he is a very fluid walker. In addition to having scope for improvement through education, there is also great potential for physical growth; he is a late October foal who will continue to furnish into a fantastic physical type.

This gelding is eligible for lucrative QTIS bonus prize money, which has just been increased. He is a genuine Queensland racehorse, by Raheen Stud stallion PUBLISHING and out of local mare Dodgette.

This horse has shown us he has the speed and action to sprint, which is consistent with his sire line.  PUBLISHING is a young sire producing great results with the opportunities he’s had to date. From his first two crops, he has produced Ruby Soho (Stakes placed in the Gold Coast 2yo Classic), Stralis (Stakes placed in the 2YO Castletown Stakes, NZ) and Royal Scribe (winner of the 2014 Grafton Guineas over 1600m). PUBLISHING was an early 2YO sprinter and was sired by Champion Australian Sprinter TESTA ROSSA whose impressive race record includes 5 Gr.1 wins and $2.9 million in prize money.

There’s some stoutness in the dam line of this horse that could get him up to a strong mile in time. Dodgette was sired by DODGE, who won multiple Gr.1 titles in middle distance and staying races. DODGE sired HARD TO CATCH ($1.1 million in prize money) and the Group placed Little Stranger and Dodgem. Dodgem placed second in the Gr.2 Grand Prix Stakes (2100m, Eagle Farm) and is a full sister to Dodgette (both by DODGE out of THREADNEEDLE).

“A lovely horse who has done everything right in his preparation, who ran in great time with loads of improvement” (Basil Nolan Jr., Raheen Stud)
