Wild Planet (Animal Kingdom x Salutations) was sold for $280,000 at the 2017 Australian Easter Yearling Sale by Arrowfield, out of the same draft that included champion 2YO Estijaab and star 3YO The Autumn Sun.

He was purchased by Hawkes Racing and Andrew Williams Bloodstock and has now finished in the top three placings at nine of his 11 career starts, earning almost $400,000 in the process.


“It was some draft, and this horse was always a lovely individual,’’ Arrowfield’s John Messara said.

“What’s happening now is the strength of our broodmare band is coming to the fore and we’re lucky to have three in the top 10 stallions, so it’s a nice recipe for success.

“That’s really allowed us to put together some very strong drafts for Easter and will continue to do so moving forward.’’

Winning co-trainer Michael Hawkes said Wild Planet was set for the Guineas due to its significant prizemoney bounty.

“It’s a great race series. This is what it’s all about, there’s owners here from Adelaide and other places to be here to watch this today,’’ Hawkes said.

“Winning is everything, it’s all about the prizemoney that owners can target.

“A horse like this, he’s definitely going the right way.'

Wild Planet beat Military Zone and Wild Power in the Guineas.

R1 SCONE 11 May 2019
Inglis 3yo Guineas 3 , 1400m
Race Synopsis: Consistent Team Hawkes-trained three-year-old Wild Planet took his record to three wins and six placings from 11 starts in taking out this Restricted Listed race. He was smartly away from his inside barrier (1) and went to the front. He steadied the mid-race tempo, lifted gamely when challenged in the straight and then went on to win well. The favourite Military Zone settled back in last place from his outside barrier (9), improved (deep) rounding the home turn, looked dangerous when he moved up at the 100m and then battled on well for second. Total Power had a nice trip in fifth place on the rails, got along the inner on turning for home and then fought on nicely for third from Signore Fox, who ran on well from second last for (2 lengths) fourth with Bare Naked Lady holding on for (2.1 lengths) fifth after looking a threat when she challenged at the 200m.
