We are very fortunate to have clients who support the Kitchwin Hills brand with their most prize processions – blue-hen broodmares.

Without their support, the KWH brand wouldn’t have half the success it does on the track and we can’t thank them enough year in and year out for entrusting us with their quality bloodstock! In saying that, there were a couple of stand out’s this week in the foaling unit!

This week the dam of Everest winner (and now sire) Yes Yes Yes (Rubick) in Sin Sin Sin foaled a beautiful filly by sire of the moment Snitzel! Congratulations to Brett and Andrea Bradley on the arrival of this beautiful filly!

This week Line and Sinker, a half-sister to G2 winner Hooked, foaled a beautiful Pride of Dubai colt for Phoenix Thoroughbreds! A very stylish colt, a big congratulations!

The one’s to watch

Get In The Spirit (Spirit of Boom x Sopraffina 2yo f.), a beautiful filly bred by Simon Engelbrecht and sold for $110,000 at the January Magic Millions Sale to Pendant Racing, she is trained by Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr – with a good opinion of her coming from the stable she is set for her first start tomorrow at Flemington in the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes. 

Boogie Dancer (Sooboog x Search For Fame 2yo. f) as a yearling, where she sold for $50,000 to Peter Moody for Rushton Park Thoroughbreds! She recently won her jump out at Pakenham and looks like she will be up and running early!
