The only foal of a superstar mare will stand in Victoria this coming season at Avenel’s Bullarook Park Stud.
The new addition to Bullarook’s stallion roster is Last Typhoon, the first and only foal of Australian Champion Racehorse and six-time Group 1 winner Typhoon Tracy.
The son of Street Cry was her only progeny due to the very sad death of the mare while giving birth.
Last Typhoon’s pedigree page with black-type being one of the premier families in the Australian Stud Book.
His grand-dam is the blue-hen Tracy’s Element whose close descendants, apart from Typhoon Tracy, include stakes winning horses Red Element, Cantonese and Shaft along with a host of other black-type performers.
This is also the family of star broodmare Urge to Merge, the dam of Group 1 winners Master of Design and Suntagonal.
Bullarook studmaster Malcolm Boyd said it was an honour to stand a stallion with such an exceptional pedigree as that of Last Typhoon.
“He has a tremendous disposition, looks a treat and will slot in nicely into the stallion barns here at Avenel,” Boyd said.
“The amazing race track performances of his dam Typhoon Tracy demonstrate what a great family this is. And the black type wins are prolific throughout the pedigree.
“Added to that, he is a son of Street Cry, a champion sire in Australia and a proven sire of sires in Australia with the likes of Street Boss and Street Sense.
“I am confident all these elements will help produce quality progeny that are tough and versatile on the racetrack getting good results for owners.”
Last Typhoon will stand for $4,400 (GST incl) in his first season at Bullarook, standing alongside Lucas Cranach ($5,500) and Strategic Maneuver ($6,600).
