Platinum Lincoln A Top Prospect
10 Aug 2012
Mark down the well-related Platinum Lincoln as a three-year-old with a bright future following his successful Riccarton debut on Saturday.
The Goodwood Stud graduate was impressive at the first time of asking for Awapuni trainer Lisa Latta in beating his more experienced rivals.
“He’s a gorgeous horse and a pleasure to do anything with,” she said. “He had a jumpout at home a couple of weeks ago and has taken natural improvement from that.”
Latta has yet to confirm his immediate programme, but is looking at the early season age group events with the gelding.
Platinum Lincoln is a son of champion European first-season sire Iffraaj and the winning Jetball mare Midnight Call.
She was also placed in the Gr 3 Lowland Stakes and is a daughter of the Listed Cambridge Breeders’ Stakes winner Tough Call.
Her sister Call Spades also won the Te Rapa feature while the headline act in the pedigree is Scarlett Lady.
She was the dual Gr 1 winner of the Queensland Oaks and the New Zealand Stakes.
Gr 3 Manawatu Challenge Stakes winner Justanexcuse is a current member of this family.
Platinum Lincoln was purchased by Latta for $60,000 out of Godowood’s 2011 Select Sale draft to Karaka.
Exciting 3YO Not For Sale
16 Jun 2012
Goodwood Stud has decided to spurn any offers for Barbaric and are looking forward to the three-year-old’s future career.
The homebred created a stir when he was an effortless debut winner at Hastings recently and has been the subject of buyer interest.
“We’re going to keep him and race him on,” William Fell said. “He was very impressive and looked like he could have won by more so we’re going to take a chance.
“For various reasons he didn’t sell and we ended up racing him and hopefully he’s going to be another good advertisement for the stud.”
A son of Pins, Barbaric was withdrawn from Goodwood’s 2010 National Yearling Sale draft due to a skin infection and a stone bruise kept him away from the Ready to Run Sale.
“He’s a horse that has had a lot of problems and he needs to be managed well, which Stephen (Marsh) has done,” Fell said.
“He’s gone out for four weeks and then he’ll come back for the spring and placed right there might be some nice stakes races for him in the future.”
Barbaric is out of Burnzees Magic and the six-time winning daughter of Kinjite is also the dam of the multiple Hong Kong winner Elusive Prince.
“We’ve got a weanling filly out of the mare by Nom du Jeu that we’ll keep and she’ll probably go back to Pins again this year,” Fells aid. “She’s from a great old Fairdale Stud family.”
Burnzees Magic is a grandson of the Fell family’s Gr.1 Railway Handicap winner Ajasco whose daughter Silver Liner emulated her Ellerslie success. She also left the South African Gr.1 winners Petrava and Hoeberg and the successful stallion Jallad.
Goodwood Tops Broodmare Sale
10 May 2012
 
Goodwood Stud provided the headline act during the National Broodmare Sale when So Divine topped the session.

Out of the Star Way mare Argante, So Divine is a sister to the Gr 1 VRC Derby and Spring Champion Stakes winner Monaco Consul.
It is also the family of the Gr 1 Australian Guineas winner and sire Military Plume and Singapore Gr 1 winner Con Air.
Goodwood presented So Divine to a keen buying bench and she was knocked down for $130,000 to Queensland agent John Foote.
“We were pretty confident that she would make around that figure,” William Fell said.
“She’s very well-related and we were certainly happy to have her in our draft.”
Goodwood also enjoyed a top result during the weanling sale with a Startcraft filly that made $51,000.
She is the first foal of the Listed Strutt Stakes winner Cabazon, a daughter of Redoute’s Choice, who has also second in the Tasmanian Oaks.
Progressive Filly Wins Again
23 Apr 2012

Jetset Lad To Fly Flag In Brisbane
22 Apr 2012
A Group One-performed Goodwood Stud graduate will spearhead Taranaki trainer John Wheeler’s team to the Queensland winter carnival.
Easter Handicap fourth placegetter Jetset Lad has been confirmed for Brisbane in the wake of his top last-start effort at Ellerslie.
“It was a huge run after he missed the jump by probably a length and ended up five wide,” Wheeler said.
“She (Spratt) had to chug forward from there and she did the best she could in the circumstances.
“The horse is the author of his own destiny really. He’s a bit of a loose cannon and still tends to do a few things wrong, but he is a fair sort.”
Wheeler is keen to stake a place in another Gr 1 feature in Brisbane and a race he won twice in the early 1990s with his former star Rough Habit.
“He’ll be going and will be aimed at the Stradbroke, but if he doesn’t get in that then there are plenty of other handicap sprints around for him,” he said.
By Elusive City, Jetset Lad is out of the winning Jetball mare Jetset Lass, who is a half-sister to Singapore Gr 3 winner Sky Frontier.
It is also the family of the dual Gr 1 Underwood Stakes and Doomben Cup winner Perlin.
 
 
 
Simply The Best Back In Business
19 Mar 2012
Goodwood Stud graduate Simply The Best rewarded his connections’ patience with an impressive win in Singapore last night. The now four-year-old by Golden Slipper winner Stratum was a major force when he began his career at Kranji in August 2010, racking up four wins in six starts to earn himself a shot at the Singapore Three-Year-Old Challenge in 2011.
A third placing in the first Leg, the Sprint race over 1200m was his best result and his form tapered off thereafter, but more worryingly for his trainer Desmond Koh and owner the Paiza Stable, Simply The Best became a barrier rogue, a situation which necessitated a break.
The rest helped recharge the batteries, but the head was obviously still not fixed when he again became fractious in the barriers at his comeback race on December 4. Koh sent him back for reschooling with the enlisted help of leading jockey Joao Moreira. After weeks of coaxing at the pens, Simply The Best finally changed for the better when he loaded into the gate without any handlers. He passed two barrier trials and was ready for his return.
Ridden by Moreira in a Class 3 race over 1200m on February 24, Simply The Best walked in like a lamb and ran on nicely for an encouraging third to Goal Keeper. With that run under the belt, his second race was highly-anticipated and the former four-time winner did not let his backers down when he produced an electrifying turn of foot at the 300m to shoot clear for a two and a-half length length win from the previously unbeaten Dollhouse.
“That was a huge relief to see him back in the winner’s circle. He’s still not 100 per cent, probably 90 per cent now, but most importantly you saw how good he can be when he does not play up at the gates,” Koh said. “They released him the moment he walked in and that is probably how he should be loaded. On that run, I would say he is really up to the mark now and I may consider the Singapore Four-Year-Old Challenge as his next target. I would definitely consider the first Leg (Stewards’ Cup over 1400m) and seriously look at the second Leg (Patron’s Bowl) over the mile.”
Moreira for one was extremely pleased he had seen his hard work pay off with a handsome win from the favourite. “I had to work for weeks to get him there. As you know he’s a horse who often got scratched behind the barriers but I knew from his third to Gingerbread Man in a Group race, he had ability,” said the Brazilian, who was at another riding treble having saluted earlier on Masthead and Nandowra. “That’s why I was very keen to get on him. And to see him win so well tonight is particularly satisfying as it would have been a shame to see such talent go to waste because of his barrier manners. I think he still had a little more to give me in the end. It’s just that when he got there in front, he had a tendency to stop. If another horse was there to chase him, I’m sure he would have scored by even further. I just had to show him the whip to keep his mind on the job.”
Simply The Best has now recorded five wins and five placings from 12 starts for stakes earnings in excess of $250,000 for the Paiza Stable. He is out of the End Sweep mare Career Start who is a half-sister to the dam of the Gr 1 Oakleigh Plate winner Eagle Falls.
 
Elusive Prince Helps The Size Cause
09 Mar 2012
Elusive Prince helped trainer John Size to extend his lead in the Hong Kong Trainers’ Premiership with victory at Happy Valley last night.
The Goodwood Stud graduate set up a winning double for the trainer who now leads the title race by 14 from Tony Cruz.
Elusive Prince was a $23,000 purchase out of the farm’s 2009 Select Sale consignment to Karaka.
By Elusive City, he is out of the winning Kinjite mare Burnzees Magic who is from an outstanding Fell family.
It features the Gr 1 Railway Handicap winner Ajasco whose daughter Silver Liner emulated her Ellerslie success.
Silver Liner produced the champion South African performer Petrava who in turn left crack filly Hoeberg and successful sire Jallad.
Group Glory For Goodwood
20 Feb 2012
Goodwood Stud celebrated their first Group-winning graduate when the progressive four-year-old Jetset Lad was victorious in the Taranaki Cup at New Plymouth.
Placed in the Gr 1 Thorndon Mile at Trentham at his previous start, the John Wheeler-trained four-year-old claimed the Gr 3 feature with a grand performance on his home track.
“He relaxed well and went a super race,” Wheeler said. “He was strong to the line and his demeanour is better than it’s ever been and he just keeps improving.”
The son of Elusive City has now won five of his 20 starts and also finished runner-up last season to champion colt Jimmy Choux in the Gr 3 Wellington Stakes.
Jetset Lad was reared at Rex and William Fell’s Goodwood Stud and is out of the Jetball mare Jetset Lass, who won three races.

Madamoiselle had placed in both her previous appearances and appreciated the step up to 1600 metres at the weekend.
She settled toward the tail of the field before improving across the top and stormed home in the straight to win by
"She's taken time to mature both physically and mentally," Ardmore trainer Stephen McKee said.
"I said to Alysha (Collett) that if she got caught wide to sit back on her and wait for the last run."
Madamoiselle's dam Tall Poppy won 11 races including the Lion Red Stakes, Thorndon Mile and the Waikato Sprint at Gr 1 level.
By Kaapstad, she is out of the Gr 1 Jarden Mile winner Fun On The Run and the family of the Gr 2 winner and Gr 1 placegetter Frenetic.

He missed the jump, was then forced to race three wide and still rounded off his effort in the straight.
Trained by Desmond Koh, Simply The Best was sold by Goodwood for $210,000 at the 2009 Ready to Run Sale.
He is out of the winning End Sweep mare Career Start whose Pins colt made $170,000 during the Premier Sale at Karaka earlier this year.

The daughter of Cape Cross followed up her successful New Plymouth outing by accounting for her Rating 80 rivals.
Part-owned by Goodwood Stud, the mare has now taken her career record to three wins from just nine appearances.
"She has been a little bit nervous on raceday but she's much more settled now," said Linda Wheeler, wife of trainer John.
"She's got great acceleration and she's going to really make it."
Ridden by Buddy Lammas, Gold Cape was midfield on the outer and had the leaders within her sights on the turn.
She was cramped for clear room until late in the straight before diving through a gap close to the post to win in fine style.
Gold Cape has added further performance to her international pedigree as she is a half-sister to the French winner and Swedish stakes performer Golden Gift.

Their dam Casting Ford Gold is a three-quarter sister to the Gr 2 York Gimcrack Stakes winner and sire Mujahid

Well-bred Mare Strikes Gold
25 Mar 2011
Highly-regarded Cape Cross mare Gold Cape took a positive step yesterday toward future black-type goals with a stylish winning performance.
The four-year-old showed the benefit of a first-up run earlier this month when she thumped the Rating 70 sprinters at New Plymouth.
Part-owned by Goodwood Stud, Gold Cape is prepared by leading trainer John Wheeler who is confident she can make her mark in good company.
"I've always thought she was a pretty good horse and rated her my best chance of winning a race today," he said.
Gold Cape has now won two of her eight starts and a possible long-term goal for her is the Gr 1 Railway Stakes at Ellerslie.
The mare boasts a strong international pedigree and is a half-sister to the French winner and Swedish stakes performer Golden Gift.
Their dam Casting Ford Gold is a three-quarter sister to the Gr 2 York Gimcrack Stakes winner and sire Mujahid.
She is further a half-sister to Gr 2 Deauville d'Ornano winner Just Happy and Canadian stakes winner and Gr 1 performer Tanasaa.

She is out of the American-bred mare You Remember Me and all six of her foals to race have now been winners.
They include the Zabeel mare Etoile Du Nord who was successful in the Listed Marton Cup and placed at Group level.

Chinese Dragon Runs Hot At Karaka
15 Feb 2011
The first crop of Goodwood Stud's flagship stallion Chinese Dragon were hot property at Karaka with his yearlings selling for up to $80,000.
The son of Stravinsky's youngsters were in keen demand throughout NZ Bloodstock's National Yearling Sales series.
"We were delighted with the response and the feedback on them was excellent," William Fell said.
"All the top trainers and buyers from Australia were looking at them and they've all gone to the right people."
Among those to secure Chinese Dragon youngsters were Te Akau and Wexford Stables and trainers Lisa Latta, Mike Breslin and Francis Finnegan.
"We've even got people coming to the farm in the next few weeks looking to buy them out of the paddock," Fell said.
Chinese Dragon's top lot was the half-sister to Gr 1 Ellerslie Sires' Produce Stakes winner Mi Jubilee offered by Goodwood on behalf of Wanganui breeder Gordon Lambert.
She was purchased by David Ellis for $80,000 and will be raced by the stud and American Dick Hale, who raced Chinese Dragon.
"We were keen to buy into the family and Jason Bridgman will be training her - hopefully she can be a Karaka Million filly," Fell said.
Goodwood's Premier Sale star was a half-sister by Red Ransom to the stakes winner Rasmussen with their dam Fleureel a sister to dual Gr 1 winner Jezabeel.
She was knocked down to big-spending Sydney agent Rick Connolly for $220,000 while Western Australian agent John Chalmers outlaid $160,000 for a Testa Rossa colt.
His dam is the Red Ransom mare Donna Sienna who is from the stallion family of Catbird, Danbird and Maizcay.
Goodwood also enjoyed a sound Select Sale with a top price of $105,000 paid by Queensland agent John Foote for a Pins colt out of a half-sister to triple Gr 1 winner Miltak.
Lisa Latta split $120,000 evenly on a son and a daughter of Iffraaj while a son of Volksraad was knocked down to Matamata trainer Lance Noble, also for $60,000.
"We think we met the market pretty well and it was solid for us all the way through," Fell said.
It was during the Select session that Latta went to $58,000 to secure her Chinese Dragon colt.
The youngster is out of the winning Centaine mare Flytaine whose three foals to race have all won and include Mercury Mistress (Listed NZ Bloodstock Air Freight Stakes).
Trade was also pleasing for Goodwood in the Festival Sale with their highlight the Dubleo yearling who went to prominent Auckland owner Peter Walker for $40,000.
The colt is out of the winning Redoute's Choice mare Diagonal who is from the Gr 1 family of Tristanagh (VRC Oaks, 1000 Guineas) and Dupain (Brisbane Cup).  
Pedigree Update For Filly
26 Jan 2011
Goodwood Stud's Karaka-bound Iffraaj filly was given a timely boost for the upcoming auction when her half-brother won at Sha Tin last night.
She will be offered by the Palmerston North farm during the Select Session during New Zealand Bloodstock's National Yearling Sale.
The youngster (Lot 959) is out of the Jetball mare Kinetic, who won nine races including the Listed Castletown Stakes.
It is also the family of the Gr 1 New Zealand 2000 Guineas winner The Pooka and Australian Gr 3 winners Never Say and Century Boy.
Kinetic's only foal to race has been Chantilly who won for a second time in Hong Kong when successful over 1600 metres on Sunday.
Well-Related 3YO Triumphs
03 Jan 2011
Memories of the former top-class stayer Hyperno were revived at Paeroa today when Goodwood Stud graduate Bruno opened his winning account.
The three-year-old showed he had a bright middle-distance future when he was successful over 2100 metres at just his fifth appearance.
"He's a big, weak type and he's been screaming out for more ground," trainer Jakki Good said.
"He'll have one or two more runs this campaign and then turn him out - we'll give him plenty of time."
Bruno was given a cosy run in the trail by Jason Collett, who worked off the fence before the field turned for home.
They challenged soon after straightening and, after hitting the front 200 metres out, held a strong gallop to strike his first winning blow. 
"Jason gave him a lovely ride and he won really well," Good said.
Bruno is out of the Kings Island mare Midas Touch who is a half-sister to the former Australian Horse of the Year Hyperno.
He won 20 races including the Melbourne Cup, Tancred Stakes, Australian Cup, Caulfield Stakes, Rawson Stakes and the Adelaide Cup at the top level.
Outstanding 2011 karaka Yearling draft
21 Dec 2010
Expectations and excitement are mounting at Goodwood Stud ahead of Karaka where the first crop of Chinese Dragon will be presented at the National Yearling Sales. 
Rex and William Fell's foundation stallion is well-represented in the farm’s biggest draft yet spread through all three divisions of the auction.
“We’ve got 12 Chinese Dragons and a total of 27 in all and we’re very pleased and excited about the quality and depth throughout,” William Fell said.
A son of Stravinsky and the Alydar mare Fabulous Fairy, whose dam Fairy Footsteps won the Group One English 1000 Guineas, Chinese Dragon was a juvenile winner in Ireland before furthering his career in the United States.
The Gr 2 winner of the San Francisco Mile and Gr 1 placed in the Santa Anita Mile, he was retired to Goodwood Stud as the winner of seven of his 13 starts.
“We’ve got two Chinese Dragons in the Premier Sale with a colt out You Remember Me (Lot 145) who has had six to the track for six winners, including the stakes-winner Etoile Du Nord,” Fell said.
“She’s been a great producer and this colt is a spitting image of Chinese Dragon with a lot of quality about him and a great head.”
The farm’s co-top lot at the 2010 sale was an O’Reilly filly out of You Remember Me who was knocked down to the Sydney-based bloodstock agent Steve Brem for $170,000.
Chinese Dragon’s daughter (Lot 444) boasts a Gr 1 pedigree being a half-sister to the Ellerslie Sires’ Produce Stakes winner and champion juvenile filly Mi Jubilee. 
"This one is also very similar to her sire with a great look and shoulder. The Chinese Dragons are outstanding to deal with and we’re pretty excited about his future.”
In the Premier Sale consignment, Fell also singled out a Tale Of The Cat filly (Lot 377) for special mention.
“She is an outstanding first foal for Just Peaches and is very correct and oozes quality,” he said. By Howbaddouwantit, Just Peaches is a grand-daughter of the former top racemare and multiple Gr 1 performer Daisy.
“Our Red Ransom filly (Lot 315) is a lovely type as well and is out of the Zabeel mare Fleureel,” Fell said. The dam is a sister to the Gr 1 Melbourne Cup winner Jezabeel. “We will also be offering some quality yearlings by Pins, Holy Roman Emperor (Lot 101) and Testa Rossa (Lot 283) so we’ve got an excellent selection,” Fell said.
Goodwood will also present yearlings by Pins (Lot 333) out of a More Than Ready mare and a half-brother to Gr 2 Sandown Guineas winner Schilling by Snitzel (Lot 433).
In the Select draft, high expectations were held for two more Chinese Dragon-sired youngsters. “The colt out of Flytaine (Lot 861) is a half-brother to Mercury Mistress, who has been a stakes-winner, and he’s a beautiful type and one of the stand-outs for sure,” Fell said.
“There’s also a filly out of Gypsy Rose (Lot 900) who is a really nice individual and pretty hard to fault.” Gypsy Rose, who like Flytaine is a daughter of Centaine, hails from the family of the Gr 1 Epsom Handicap winner Rock Kingdom.
Chinese Dragon will be further represented by Lots 640, 872, 1022 and 1072 while the consignment is completed by colts by Volksraad (Lot 628), Pins (Lot 825), Iffraaj (Lot 1034) and Elusive Quality (Lot 1118) and daughters of Iffraaj (Lot 512 and 959).
In the Festival Sale, Goodwood will offer colts by Chinese Dragon (Lots 1167 and 1281), Dubleo (Lot 1387) and fillies by Chinese Dragon (Lots 1259, 1468), Lion Heart (Lot 1391) and Savabeel (Lot 1405).

Smart Filly Chasing Eulogy
09 Dec 2010

Well-bred filly Lol will be looking to add further performance to her pedigree when she heads south to Awapuni on Saturday.

The Murray and Bjorn-Baker trained three-year-old will chase Gr 3 honours in the Eulogy Stakes.

The Goodwood Stud-bred and owned Lol already has a win and a black-type placing to her credit when third in the Ryder Stakes.

However, she has often performed without luck and has been denied clear racing room at her last two appearances.

She was also found to be in season after finishing sixth at Ellerslie at her most recent outing.

By General Nediym, she will be reunited with jockey David Walsh at the weekend.

Walsh has ridden the filly three times for a debut win together at Avondale last season and a placing.

Lol is out of the Zabeel mare Kazak who has an Alamosa filly at foot and is in foal to Gr 1 winner Nom De Jeu.

Home-Bred Simply The Best In Singapore
06 Dec 2010

Simply The Best is likely to be sent for a well-earned break after another impressive victory at Kranji on Sunday night.

The Goodwood Stud-bred and sold gelding now boasts the record of four wins and two seconds from his six career starts.

Simply The Best handled the rise to open company with ease to post his latest success over 1200 metres.

“I wasn’t sure he would measure up but the way he won tells me he’s definitely got plenty of ability,” trainer Desmond Koh told the Singapore Turf Club's website.

“They jammed on the brakes the early and when they bunched up around the 800 metres he suddenly found himself in the leading section, four wide.

“I relaxed a little when I saw he seemed to be travelling freely within himself. But when the others started coming home at the 200m, I thought he was in trouble.

“That was when he kicked again, which goes to show he’s looking for more ground.

“I will probably give him a break and look at the Three-Year-Old Challenge next year.”

The autumn series will kick off with the Singapore 3YO Sprint on April 1.

Simply The Best strode to the front 300 metres from home last night and held a strong gallop to win with authority.

“Des told me to ride him a little handy as he resents the kickback. Though he was wide, he was on a free rein and running along very well," rider Saimee Jumaat said.

“He had a tendency to wander around and loaf when he hit the front but once he put his mind on the job he kicked again.

“It’s probably not the best way to ride him. He’s better off coming from the back, but the race panned out that way and I didn’t have many options.”

By Stratum, Simply The Best was sold by Goodwood for $210,000 at the 2009 Ready to Run Sale.

He is out of the winning End Sweep mare Career Start whose Pins colt made $170,000 during the Premier Sale at Karaka earlier this year.

Another Cracker For Chinese Dragon
18 Aug 2010
The first foal of the season for exciting resident stallion Chinese Dragon has been welcomed at Goodwood Stud with the arrival of a well-related colt.
"He's a nice, big strong fellow and a bay - he's very typical of the breed and they've all got good presence about them," studmaster William Fell said.
The newcomer is out of the Mi Preferido mare Mi Steel and a half-brother to Gr 1 Ellerslie Sires' Produce Stakes winner Mi Jubilee.
The colt's older sister will also feature among Goodwood's consignment to next year's New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sales.
"She's an outstanding filly and part of a really good draft we'll be sending to Karaka," Fell said.
By Stravinsky, Chinese Dragon has been well-received by breeders since his retirement to Goodwood in 2008.
He was the Gr 2 winner of seven of his 13 starts and is from the successful stallion family of Desert Prince, Selkirk and Royal Palace.
Chinese Dragon is out of the winning Alydar mare Fabulous Fairy who is a daughter of Fairy Fooststeps (Gr 1 English 1000 Guineas).
Best Yet To Come From Lol
02 Aug 2010
Lol showed she would be a serious contender for three-year-old fillies' honours this season with another eye-catching effort in the Listed Ryder Stakes.
The daughter of General Nediym was slow away on Saturday and hit the line strongly to finish an excellent third and an all-important black-type credit.
The Goodwood Stud graduate has had little luck in her two starts since an impressive win on debut at Avondale last month.
She then had no favours at Ruakaka where she was doing her best work at the finish in behind the placegetters in the Listed Northland Breeders' Stakes.
"She was a touch slow and was then squeezed out and it's hard to come from the back at Whangarei," Cambridge co-trainer Bjorn Baker said.
"She did pretty well to finish as close as she did in the end."
Lol again did herself no favours when missing the kick at Otaki and her effort to run third was first-class under the circumstances.
"She's always showed a lot of ability and is very genuine - there's also a fair bit of improvement to come from her yet," Baker said
