This colt is the complete package – by Champion Sire FASTNET ROCK (Danehill), he is out of the juvenile Stakes performer Wiener (More Than Ready) who is a half-sister to Champion Sires SNITZEL (Redoute’s Choice) and HINCHINBROOK (Fastnet Rock).
Wiener has produced six winners from seven runners to-date and they include the Stakes performers Redoutable Heart (Redoute’s Choice) and Za Zi Ba (All Too Hard). She is also the dam of Wiener Waltz (Zoustar) who looked promising on his only start to-date when beaten just 1L at Ascot as a 2YO. The 3YO is now back in work with Sean Casey and is a recent winner of two trials at Belmont. Wiener foaled a filly by I AM INVINCIBLE this spring.
The FASTNET ROCK/MORE THAN READY cross is one of the hottest crosses around with an astonishing 18 winners from 20 runners led by Group One New Zealand 2,000 Guineas winner ATLANTE, and Stakes winners IMPETUOUS and MISS DEBUTANTE.
Furthering underscoring the strength of this mating is the fact that three of the runners bred on the FASTNET ROCK/MORE THAN READY cross have, like this colt, SNIPPETS as their second dam sire and all three are winners and include Phoenix Rising who was fourth in the Group Three National Stakes, and Angel who was fourth in the Listed Morphettville Guineas.
