Trelawney Stud graduates had an outstanding 2018/19 season on the racetrack amassing 120 wins from 60 individual winners in five different racing jurisdictions.
There were 9 horses to win at stakes level, including dual Queensland Group One winner The Bostonian (Jimmy Choux x Keepa Cheval) who was born and raised at Trelawney Stud, and Gr.1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) winner Grunt (O’Reilly x Ruqqaya) who was bred, raised and sold by the farm.
Emily Margaret (Pins x Seven Schillings) was another to have a standout season. Bred by David Archer, who also bred The Bostonian, Emily Margaret was sold as a yearling through Trelawney Stud’s 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock draft. The daughter of Pins had 11 starts during the season, for four wins including her career best performance to take out the Gr.2 Wellington Guineas (1400m) in March. She won a further two times at Listed level and was also runner up in the Listed NZB Airfreight Stakes (1600m).
Igraine (Galileo x Iota) was another to step up during the season. The imported mare will hold a valuable spot in the Trelawney Stud broodmare band after adding a further four wins to her tally, including the Gr.3 Counties Cup (2100m) and Listed Caloundra Cup (2400m). Igraine has stayed in Australia following her Queensland campaign and will be covered by Fastnet Rock.
Star of the Seas (Ocean Park x Stella Livia) can lay claim to being the Trelawney Stud graduate with the most wins for the season. Bred and raised by the farm before being sold privately, Star of the Seas won five races out of Chris Waller’s stable and was placed in his further four starts of the season.
At the conclusion of the racing season five mares that race in the Trelawney Stud silks were retired to stud. Igraine, Indecision (Per Incanto x Yeah Nah), Perroquet (Ocean Park x Pernod), Vinevale (Flying Spur x Eden Valley) and Winkelmann (Rip Van Winkle x Crepe De Chine) will all be covered this year, as will juvenile Group Three performer Astor (Iffraaj x Hukba) who has been purchased as a breeding prospect.
The new additions to the broodmare band will give access to another generation of several of the farm’s successful families, while new international pedigrees will also be introduced to the mix.
There is plenty to be excited about in the 2019/2020 racing season. More Than Ever (More Than Ready x Danalaga) got the new term off to a successful start when bringing up a winning hat-trick at Moonee Valley on Saturday. The five-year-old gelding has taken time to develop but trainer Tony McEvoy has marked him as a quality stayer in the making. In Singapore the Trelawney Stud bred and owned Strap Marks (Jimmy Choux x Dominatrix) has won his last two starts and looks like he will progress further, while Loire (Redoute’s Choice x Syrah) broke her maiden in style in May.
Trelawney Stud would like to thank all those that supported them during the 2018/19 racing season and congratulate connections of winning farm graduates. They wish everyone the best of luck over the next twelve months of racing and look forward to another season of success stories.
