When Hinchinbrook had to be put down after an accident, it robbed the Australian breeding industry of one of its best young sires.
Hinchinbrook was a very good racehorse, had a great pedigree and was siring some terrific racehorses. We were reminded of just how good a sire he was when Beat The Clock won the Group 1 Centenary Cup in Hong Kong late last year.
Hinchinbrook only ever served average sized books of mares but has sired 247 winners with four Group 1 winners. I'm proud of the fact I purchased and syndicated Flying Jess who is Hinchinbrook's highest earning filly with $1,421,680. Overall, she is his 3rd highest earner behind Beat The Clock and Press Statement.
Positive Charge is by Charge Forward, one of our very best young broodmare sires. He has moved from 164th position on the Broodmare Sires List 5 years ago to 22nd at present. He is represented by Sunlight, She Will Reign, Estijaab and Limestone. It should be noted these are all fillies.
Positive Charge was a good race filly winning twice and being placed in the Listed Denise's Joy Stakes. Her best effort was running 2nd to the outstanding mare Egyptian Symbol, beaten only .5 of a length. She was only lightly raced which I like and this is her second foal. She has a filly by Russian Revolution at foot.
Positive Charge is a full sister to the very good race mare Slightly Sweet. She won twice at Group 3 level with $502,585 stakes to her name. She didn't go to stud.
Down the page this is a nice family with a number of ‘Black type’ performers listed including the Group 1 horse Stay Tuned.
This is a lovely filly, typical of Hinchinbrook's best ones. She is strong behind and is very athletic. She certainly looks like a runner. I'm thrilled to have her in my team.
I have paid her up for the Magic Millions race series. Sadly this filly is a part of Hinchinbrook's final crop of yearlings with a colt selling for $1.15 million to Coolmore Australia.
The filly goes to Kris Lees who has done a great job for us for many years.
