A Super One filly to be based in Newcastle
Kris Lees to take charge
I doubt if we have a more exciting sire hit our breeding scene in recent years than I Am Invincible. He has done a remarkable job at stud and while his oldest progeny is only six, he already has three sons at stud in Brazen Beau, Hellbent and Super One. This is a big achievement with these young sires standing at Darley, Yarraman Park and Newgate Farm, three of our highest profile studs.
I went to Cranbourne to inspect Super One when he had his first start in Australia and was very impressed with him. He was a strong athletic horse. I have been very impressed by his progeny with this being the second filly I have purchased by the sire. They remind me a lot of the I Am Invincible progeny. In the main they have good conformation and strong hindquarters. They are also very attractive horses to the eye.
By Super One
Super One was a very good looking yearling and precocious two years old being unbeaten in four starts in Singapore. One of the greatest assets a sire can have is speed and Super One possessed that in abundance.
He is by the hottest sire in Australia at present in I Am Invincible who is currently ranked second on the Australian Sire’s List and the Leading Sire of 2yo winners in Australia.
Super One has a good pedigree on his dam’s side and is out of a Tale Of The Cat mare. Tale Of The Cat has been a wonderful broodmare sire with 158 stakes horses coming from his daughters. While most of those are overseas his best-known performers here are Snitty Kitty, Felines, Stampede, Adrift, Atomic and, of course, Super One.
Super One came back to Australia and won the Group 3 DC McKay Stakes before going to stud. He wasn’t over raced which I prefer and is a strong, attractive horse. It is important to note some of our very best studs took up shares in the horse when he was syndicated for stud with many of them sending mares to him again this season.
Super One has 108 foals on the ground in his first crop and was again busy in his second season where he served a good book of mares.
Out of El Mina
El Mina was a talented 2yo running 2nd to the precocious Psychic Mick on debut. He went on to win the Vain Stakes. She won twice including a win over the talented mare Royal Scandal as well as running 2nd to Mighty Like who also went on to be a stakes winner.
El Mina is out of the Dracula mare Mina who had five named foals which all won including the Group 3 winner Puritan and stakes placed Linked In. The first three mares have had 21 to race with 18 winning.
El Mina is by the highly successful international broodmare sire Spinning World. Our handy mare Not Surprising is out of a Spinning World by I Am Invincible. Spinning World’s daughters have thrown 21 stakes horses in Australia and $16,434,641 in stakes earnings.
Tragically El Mina died after giving birth to this filly which is very disappointing as she was a beautiful mare and her first foal is a cracker.
