Classic Season For Australian Breeding

FASTNET Rock gelding Sambro recorded his second black type win in Saturday's G2 Queensland Guineas at Doomben.

Sambro Horseform (Fastnet Rock x Eau De Joie by Encosta De Lago) was an impressive winner of the Hawkesbury Guineas in April and was an unlucky second in the Carbine Club Stakes at Flemington in the spring.

Racing for a syndicate that purchased him as a Magic Millions yearling for $420,000, Sambro advanced his record to three wins and seven placings from 16 starts with earnings of $475,707.

He is the third winner from the stakes-placed Eau de Joie, a half-sister to Golden Slipper winner Polar Success out of the stakes-placed Covetous mare Patou who is a daughter of Polar Maid.

Eau De Joie died in 2016, leaving an unraced two-year-old filly by Redoute’s Choice.

Sambro is the 136th stakes winner by Fastnet Rock, who was responsible for the highest-priced lot at the recent Australian Easter Yearling Sale at $2.3 million.

R3 DOOMBEN 9 June 2018
Queensland Guineas 3 , 1600m
Race Synopsis: Chris Waller-trained gelding Sambro followed his good win in the Hawkesbury Guineas (Gr 3, 1400m) on 28 April with a good performance in taking out this Group Three race. He settled in a good spot under Michael Walker racing in fourth place (one out and one back) behind a good tempo before improving nearing the home turn. He responded to riding to take the lead at the 100m and then fought back to win well. The favourite Seaway raced in sixth place, tracked the eventual winner rounding the home turn and kept making ground to take second, beaten a half-length. Magnufighter settled toward the tail of the 12-horse field, put in a wide move nearing the 200m and steadily made ground to take third. New Zealander Karisto raced in third place until into the home straight and held on for (1.9 lengths) fourth after seeming to have had every chance.
