Al Maher - Randwick Bound
Patrick Payne to train in Victoria

The colt

The colt is a forward well grown August foal from a family that can get an early runner. In fact, during this season Randwick Bound’s ½ sister Roobeena was placed 2nd in the VRC Group 3 Ottawa Stakes at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day. Another colt named Run Naan won the Group 3 VRC Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington on Emirates Day during the same Carnival and was recently placed at Caulfield in a lead up race to the Blue Diamond.

My expectations are that the colt will race at two but will be at her best at three and four years. He is an August foal and quite mature. I have paid him up for the $8 million Inglis Race Series which is a great initiative put on by the famous sales company.

By Al Maher

Al Maher has done a remarkable job with him siring 352 individual winners. He has sired 55 stakes horses including the Group 1 winners Delicacy, Fat Al, Diamond Drille and Almalad as well as Majestic Music, Budriguez, Silverstream, Badawiya (1/2 sister to Randwick Bound) and, of course, Prime Thoroughbreds' Unchain My Heart. He is an incredibly versatile sire getting 2yo through to 3200m winners.

Al Maher was a very good racehorse winning at Randwick as a 2yo. He went on to be one of the very best three year bolds winning the VRC Group 1 Australian Guineas as well as the VRC Carbine Club Stakes and STC Gloaming Stakes.

Out of Randwick Bound

Randwick Bound is by the high class son of Chief’s Crown in Beautiful Crown who stood at stud in Australia with great success. Two of his daughters Maha Chakri and Believe ‘n Achieve wore our colours with distinction and both have thrown stakes horses at stud including the Whittington who now stands at stud in Queensland.

Randwick Bound comes from a very successful female line which includes many ‘black type’ winners. She was unraced but is a ½ sister to Rumya a multiple Group 1 winner in South Africa and Badawya a multiple Group 2 winner and Group 1 placed in the MRC 1000 Guineas. She is also a ½ sister to Roobeena which ran 2nd in the VRC Group 3 Ottawa Stakes in November of 2017.

This family is that of the great mare Emancipation which is one of the most prominent in the Australian stud Book. This is Randwick Bound’s second live foal. She is in foal to Snitzel.

It is amazing how some horses grab your attention when you attend a yearling sale and, for whatever reason, you can’t really find a reason not to like the horse. That is the case with this colt. He has good presence about him and gets around like a good horse. I loved his colour. It is hard to go past rich bay horses in colour. He is a very healthy animal and was reared in the upper Hunter Valley which is very good horse country.

I am a big fan of Al Maher. He was a very good racehorse and has a superb pedigree. Unchain My Heart was one of Prime Thoroughbreds best performers on the track and won 10 races and $595,980 in stakes money. She won three stakes races at Flemington including the Andrew Ramsden Stakes twice and was one of only two Australian bred horses to contest the 2014 Melbourne Cup.

I cannot wait for this colt to get to the races.
