A resolute last-to-first effort by the promising colt Kubrick in Saturday’s Lonhro Hall Of Fame 2YO Handicap at Rosehill has added to the strong start to the stallion career of his sire Shooting To Win.
Already one of Shooting To Win’s five first-crop winners, Kubrick showed he had improved on his debut win in a juvenile maiden at Cranbourne to gather in the leaders at the 150m mark and outlast the runner-up Espinola to win by a head.
As well as his five winners, Shooting To Win, himself the winner of the G1 Caulfield Guineas, has produced the G3 placegetter Shotmaker.
Kubrick was a A$250,000 purchase at last year’s Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale by prominent syndicator Star Thoroughbreds.
The colt is out of the Fastnet Rock mare Alcatraz who is closely-related to the excellent racehorse Twiglet, the dam of the international G1 champion Fairy King Prawn, the G1-winning Australian sprinter Easy Rocking and the listed winner Crevette.
Shooting To Win will stand in 2019 at Kelvinside, NSW, at a fee of A$22,000 including GST.
