One of the secrets to giving yourself a chance of ownership success is to purchase yearlings by very fast horses. Winning Rupert was certainly that. He won five of his six starts breaking two course records in the process and going to within .1 second of Takeover Target's Doomben record for 1200m. He was beaten as an odds-on favourite in the $2 million Magic Millions Guineas which was won by our good filly Flying Jess. After this race, he was found to be lame and then was retired to stud.
Leading Australian form analyst Dominic Beirne wrote this about the horse in January 2017: “I match-raced him at weight-for-age against Chautauqua, Astern, Star Turn, Flying Artie and Extreme Choice and based on the projected ratings for those horses at their next start, Winning Rupert was the marginal favourite.”
Winning Rupert is by Written Tycoon out of a fast Show A Heart mare and comes from a running family. I was quite impressed by the overall quality of his yearlings and expect him to be a success at stud.
Mowgli had good ability but was only lightly raced. She was placed in Sydney and ran 4th in the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes. She is by the speed sire Not A Single Doubt. The second dam is Flion Fenena by Lion Hunter. She was very fast winning at two and being placed in the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes. I love Lion Hunter mares. His daughters have thrown Chautauqua, Star Witness, Dark Dream, Nostradamus and the sister to Mowgli in Beat The Clock.
Mowgli is a ½ sister to Champion Hong Kong sprinter Beat The Clock. Beat The Clock is a very good sprinter by Hinchinbrook which has won A$8,159,209 in Hong Kong. He is currently the best sprinter in Hong Kong. He beat Santa Ana Lane and Viddora in the Hong Kong Centenary Sprint Cup.
This filly looks like a 2yo and was bred at Yarraman Park. She is an exciting prospect with Patrick Payne to train.
