Super One - Manhattan Angel
A Super One filly to race in Victoria
Trainer - Darren Weir

The filly

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 and was thrilled when I found this filly at the Magic Millions National Sale. It has been interesting just how many people commented to me after I purchased her on what a good type she was.

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 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.

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. This is a very good sign.

Out of Manhattan Angel

This is only Manhattan Angel’s fourth foal. She has had two to race with both being winners and importantly both were metropolitan placed as 2yo. The 3rd foal was a cracking colt by The Factor which had to be put down after an accident.

Manhattan Angel comes from a good family that includes Pleasuring which won the SAJC Group 3 SA Fillies Classic and the Listed double of the TRC Strutt Stakes and TTC Tasmanian Oaks during her last preparation. She was also a closing 4th in the Group 1 SAJC Australasian Oaks.

I love buying out of winning families and this one has seen the first four dams have 32 to race for 26 individual winners including the Group or Listed performers Northern Drake, Seattle Ice, Profit Report and Triumphant Feeling

Northern Drake was an outstanding galloper winning the VATC Group 1 Yalumba Stakes and was placed 2nd in the MVRC WS Cox Plate and Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes.

All in all, this filly represents great value and heads to an outstanding trainer. I’ll be very surprised if she doesn’t run at two and expect Super One to make it as a sire given the high-quality foals I have inspected.

She is to race in Victoria.
