Multiple Group One winner and first season sire Toorak Toff posted his second winner from just nine starters when Toorak Rose beat the older horses at Moe in her first ever race start.
The daughter of stakes placed Strategic mare Plans was an $80,000 Inglis Melbourne Premier purchase by Caulfield trainer Clint McDonald.
Good enough to be nominated for the Group 1 Champagne Stakes, a patient approach from McDonald brought dividends today.
“I really like the Toorak Toff stock. I’ve got a few in the stable and they are going to make lovely three year olds,” McDonald said.
His other very promising 2yo filly Pop is also by Toorak Toff and was good enough to take her place in the G1 Champagne Stakes during the ATC Championships, running a bold fifth. She is Toorak Toff’s other winner to date.
“We are really excited by the six months ahead for this stallion,” said Rosemont’s Anthony Mithen.
“Every trainer that has one has been very keen for them to get to their 3yo season given they are showing a propensity to get a mile and maybe beyond.”
Rosemont announced earlier this month that the son of Show a Heart will stand for $8800 in season 2016.
