Group Winner Derryn Sold To New Zealand Stud

Classy Australian sprinter Derryn has been sold to stand at stud in New Zealand.

The talented son of Hinchinbrook met and matched some of the best Australian short course performers during a career that saw him win three races including the G2 Arrowfield Sprint at Randwick.

Derryn has been secured by Mark and Jane Corcoran’s Grangewilliam Stud at Waitotora in Taranaki.

“I approached New Zealand Bloodstock to keep an eye out for a new stallion and I was keen on a speed horse,” Mark Corcoran said.

“When Derryn came up I looked at his race videos and I was sold. He was probably unlucky not to win a Group One.

“He’s got a great pedigree, really good blood, and a family that leaves top stallions.

“He’s got the looks to go with it as well – he’s the complete package.”

The four-year-old raced at the top grade throughout his career with 19 of his 20 starts at black type level, nine of them in Group One company for trainers David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig.

Derryn career highlight saw him defeat G1 winners Global Glamour and Impending in the Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m).

He also won the Listed Darby Munro (1200m) at Rosehill and showed his precocious nature with a two-year-old victory over 1000m at Caulfield.

Derryn’s record also features placings in the G1 Doomben 10,000 behind Redzel, the G3 Zeditave Stakes, the G3 Blue Sapphire Stakes and the G3 Up And Coming Stakes (1200m).

His sire Hinchinbrook is a three-quarter brother by Fastnet Rock to champion sire Snitzel.

Derryn’s dam is Munhro, a winning daughter of Lonhro and an Unbridled’s Song mare, is a half-sister to the G3 winner Colour.

It is the same family as successful stallions Not A Single Doubt, Snippets and Zizou as well as the G1 winners Forensics, Rewaaya, Sense Of Occasion and Ertijaal.

Derryn will stand at Grangewilliam for $5000 + GST in 2018 alongside Zed, Haradasun, The Bold One and Dial A Prayer.
