Bluebloods : Feb 2011 Issue - Sale Previews
GRAEME McCULLOCH has been selling yearlings for 40 years and has lost count of the number of winners raised on his 108ha (265 acre) Grenville Stud at Whitemore, many trained on the property by Graeme himself. He is confident there will be plenty more winners in the stud's 2011 Tasmanian Sale draft of 17, half of them by new young sire Incumbent (Choisir-Chalonne by Rubiton), a talented two year- old whose major win came in the VRC Sires' Produce-Gr.2. "I really think he'll make it asasire,hehasa lovely bunch of yearlings and they are very like him, none more so than the colt from Palace Downs (Palace Music). He's very correct, a really nice horse and the dam, who is from the family of great sire Bold Ruler, already has four winners," Graeme said. Also mentioned among the pick of the Incumbents were the fillies from Uptown Amber (Double Income), who won six races, and Charlann (Double Income), "a lovely, big filly". The dam also won six races and has produced two winners. With more than 230 winners (10SW) of $9.7m Grenville's "grand old man" West Quest (Gone West- Veridian by Green Dancer) is a Tasmanian success story. "He's won six straight sires' premierships here and always seems to have a good horse. Dream Pedlar is the latest, he won the Tasmanian Stakes-LR and Devonport Cup at his past two starts and was runner-up in the Launceston Cup-Gr.3 last year, and this year could go one better. He's won eight races and $525,000, typical of the West Quests who keep on winning season after season." Graeme selected the "lovely colt" from Coming at You (Never Quit) as a yearling to command attention. He is a three-quarter sibling to Tasmanian Stakes-LR winner Braequest and from the family of Hobart Cup-Gr.3 winner Southern States. Grenville's Snippetson colt from stakes placed Flying Spur mare Flying Diva should also draw plenty of admirers and this attractive, athletic yearling is from the family of juvenile stakes winners Noble Lancer and In The Slot, while the Rock of Gibraltar- Cincinnati Sal (Last Tycoon) colt is a half-brother to five winners including stakes placed Cincinnati Gal, and the Undoubtedly-Classic Echo (Rory's Jester) colt is a half-brother to three winners and a "nice, scopey fellow with plenty of size."
