Big yearling colt for lease - get in without up front expense.
Feb 16, 2010
The cheapest way to get into racing is through a lease - simply put, you don't have to buy it, just pay the ongoing expenses.
Right now Bruce has a big strapping yearling colt by the defunct King Of Happiness (USA) to lease for three years.
The colt presently being reared at Wattle Brae on the Darling Downs is good natured, correct with a big girth.
He is a chestnut like his dad King Of Happiness, who stood at 16.2 hands and was rated one of the best milers (turf) in the US in 2005.
King Of Happiness won his lone start as a two-year-old, was a dual Group 3 winner including the Group 3 Craven Stakes as a three year old in England and later in the US finished second in the Group 1 2005 Breeders Cup (1600m) behind Castledale at Hollywood Park.
This colt's dam Broadway Beauty (by Star Way) was bought by Star Thoroughbred's from the Karaka sale in the mid 90's for $56,000.
Gai Waterhouse trained, but her best performances have been in the breeding barn.
Broadway Beauty has already thrown two winners Pickastar, a winner of ten races, and Miss Kalymnos a winner of two.
Broadway Beauty gives the dominant Northern Dancer line in King Of Happiness the needed outcross for success.
The dam line is predominantly a European and USA family with plenty of black-type.
King Of Happiness died in July this year when victim of laminitis.
Numbers he covered suggest he will never lead the sire's table having only had 88 live foals in a short three season career.
Will it be another case of a good one going before his time?
This colt has the looks to make its mark and Bruce is very happy to take him on.
"He is yet to be broken in and it is a chance for people to get in without initial outlay from the start."
This colt's broodmare sire Star Way was a great sire with 58 stakewinners including Our Waverley Star, Shankhill Lass etc.
As a broodmare sire his influence has been great with his daughters having produced 500 winners including 20 Group winners such as Encosta de Lago Carnegie Express, La Bella Dama, Black Bean, Coco Cobanna, Conair, etc.
