ARLINGTON (AUS)(Red Ransom-Savannah Success, by Success Express)
Tamalee Farm, NSW. Fee: $5,500

Arlington Overview

Arlington, a Gr1 performed half-brother to a Cox Plate winning Champion Sire, is up to 22 individual winners of 45 races on the board from his first small crops, including multiple winners Fort Myer, Fast Arli, Arlington's Pick, Little Arli, Hurricane Harbour, Magic Arli, Cut The Mustard and Arlington Heights. With multiple winners continuing to roll in, Arlington’s pedigree and race record suggest his progeny are going to make exceptional maturing horses over journeys at a mile and beyond where they could be genuine Cups prospects.

Arlington was a $1.55 million yearling thanks to his exemplary pedigree and stunning looks. His half-brother, Savabeel, a multiple champion sire, won a Cox Plate as a 3YO, and his dam, Savannah Success, was a dual Gr1 winning Oaks filly. His own sire, Red Ransom, is one of our best in recent times. Arlington’s already impressive pedigree has continued to have significant upgrades via the success of Black Heart Bart (Blackfriars) whose five individual Gr1 wins have been underpinned by an equal number of Gr1 placings. Black Heart Bart is a son of Savannah Success’s city winning half-sister Sister Theresa (At Talaq). The success of Black Heart Bart, and Savabeel’s stud career highlight how well this family crosses with sons of Danehill.

Arlington first raced as an October 2YO, and was stakes-placed at just his second start. As a 3YO, Arlington ran third in the Gr1 Randwick Guineas to Horse of the Year Weekend Hussler, and as an older horse, Arlington picked up group placings in the Gr2 Japan-New Zealand International Trophy and Gr3 Tauranga Stakes (behind multiple Gr1 winner Sir Slick). He also has three Listed placings to his credit (two of those in his 2YO season). Arlington proved on the track that he was tough, and talented, having 54 starts over six seasons for five wins.

Breeders who can’t afford Savabeel’s much deserved lofty fee can access Arlington for a fraction of the price. This is real value, right here.

  • Arlington Sale Coincides With Strong Progeny Form

    Tue, 1 May 2018

    With the potential pending sale of champion sire Savabeel's Gr1-performed half-brother Arlington at Tamalee Farm next Sunday, the promising sire of future potential Cups prospects is currently enjoying strong success with his progeny including three winners in the last week of April. The Red Ransom stallion, whose oldest are 4YO staying prospects, already boasts 20 individual winners (12 of them with between 2 - 4 wins) of almost $1 million. His best runner might even be a city-class maiden, with the Barry Lockwood-trained Toowoomba Guineas runner-up Naked already the earner of $40,000 from 6 placings and entered for the Gr3 Grand Prix Stakes (2200m) during Brisbane’s Winter Carnival. Arlington, along with a number of weanlings, yearlings and mares in-foal to him, will be auctioned at Tamalee Farm in Tamworth on Sunday 6 May from 11am. Inspections will be held on Saturday 5 May from 9am to 3pm. Sunday's sale will include the local school providing a barbecue, food and drinks.

  • Highland Reel to Stand at Swettenham Stud

    Tue, 17 Apr 2018

    In a tremendous boost to Australia's stallion ranks, Swettenham Stud has announced that globetrotting star Highland Reel (Galileo-Hveger, by Danehill) will stand in Victoria this spring. Trained by Aidan O'Brien, the Irish-bred Highland Reel was last seen scoring a brilliant win in the Gr1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m) at Sha Tin in December. In what was the swansong of his remarkable career before retiring to stud, Highland Reel advanced his record to 10 wins from 27 starts for $13,951,220 in earnings. Among those wins were 7 at Group 1 level, namely the Hong Kong Vase, Prince of Wales's Stakes, Breeders' Cup Turf, Coronation Cup, King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Hong Kong Vase, and Arlington Secretariat Stakes. He also boasts placings in world-class events such as the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe & Cox Plate. By the legendary Galileo, Highland Reel is out of the Gr1-placed Australian mare Hveger (Danehill), a full-sister to multiple Gr1 winner Elvstroem and a half-sister to fellow multiple Gr1 scorer Haradasun from Australian Oaks heroine Circles Of Gold. This is also the family of brilliant young sire Starspangledbanner and Golden Slipper winner Polar Success. "Swettenham Stud is extremely excited to have secured Highland Reel from Coolmore Stud for stallion duties in the southern hemisphere," Swettenham Stud principal Adam Sangster said. "And while he might be standing at our Nagambie base, Highland Reel's appeal is truly global." Sangster added: "With his tremendous race record and what is clearly a stallion's pedigree, I'm highly confident he will attract broodmare owners from all states...particularly at such a competitive fee." Highland Reel will join the Swettenham roster at an introductory fee of $15,000 plus GST.

  • Arlington Sires First City Winner In Sydney

    Tue, 30 Jan 2018

    Multiple champion stallion Savabeel's half-brother Arlington (Red Ransom-Savannah Success, by Success Express) sired his first metropolitan winner in emphatic style last Saturday at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney. Trained by Michelle Fleming (her first Sydney runner) and ridden by Chris O'Brien, The Lion (Arlington-Lion Belle, by Lion Heart) made it back to back wins following his recent successful outing at Scone when sweeping home for an effortless 2-lengths triumph in the TAB Highway Handicap (1100m). The manner of his victory was similar to Arlington's flashing third in the Gr1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) as a 3YO. Arlington has now sired 15 individual winners of 30 races. The Lion, who is being prepared to contest the Country Championships, now has 2 wins and 3 placings from 10 starts. Watch his Highway victory here.

Highland Reel is out of the Gr1-placed Australian mare Hveger (Danehill), a full-sister to multiple Gr1 winner Elvstroem and a half-sister to fellow multiple Gr1 scorer Haradasun from Australian Oaks heroine Circles Of Gold. This is also the family of brilliant young sire Starspangledbanner and Golden Slipper winner Polar Success. Trainer Aidan O'Brien said: "He's incredible. He's tactically very good, fast early and then quickens. What's unbelievable is that he is very brave. When you want everything he gives you everything. Ryan gave him a brilliant ride. He wasn't going to give up."

Highland Reel is out of the Gr1-placed Australian mare Hveger (Danehill), a full-sister to multiple Gr1 winner Elvstroem and a half-sister to fellow multiple Gr1 scorer Haradasun from Australian Oaks heroine Circles Of Gold. This is also the family of brilliant young sire Starspangledbanner and Golden Slipper winner Polar Success. "He's unbelievably courageous. It's what his dad had that made him different to every other horse we've had, and he has it tenfold,” trainer Aidan O’Brien told Racing Post. "He's passed every test you would want a thoroughbred to go through, from the time he was two. He has turned up in big races and we've travelled everywhere with him. He's an amazing horse.”

    Wed, 31 May 2017

    Sydney-based jockey Blake Shinn will ride in America on a short-term contract for trainer Wesley Ward during the Australian winter, reports AAP. Shinn, who departs for the US on Sunday, will spend five weeks riding for Ward who is based at Arlington Park in Chicago.

  • No Reserve Arlington Yearlings At Tamalee Farm

    Fri, 12 May 2017

    Following an exceptional season with his first crop of 3YOs, where 10 individuals have won already, emerging sire Arlington (Red Ransom-Savannah Success, by Success Express) is the subject of a private yearling sale at Tamalee Farm, near Tamworth, on Sunday, May 21. "It's a no reserve sale," notes former STC Chairman Bruce McHugh, also Tamalee Farm principal, and managing owner of Arlington. He is confident that the 12 well-pedigreed yearlings on offer will find plenty of interest from owners and trainers, providing them with genuine value at modest prices. A Gr1-placed $1.55 million half-brother to multiple champion sire Savabeel, and closely related to Gr1 star Black Heart Bart, Arlington is stamping his progeny with his own impressive physique (see Lot 2 from the sale below). "The exciting thing," acknowledges McHugh, "is that each year the quality of mares Arlington gets has improved, and with the success of his progeny this year it is going to be even better in 2017." The sale starts at 11am. Click here for more information.

  • Arlington Breaks Into Double Figures

    Fri, 28 Apr 2017

    With 3 months of the current racing season still to run, emerging second crop sire Arlington (Red Ransom-Savannah Success, by Success Express) has sired his 10th individual winner for 2016-17. Joining the other 9 winners from Arlington’s first crop, Arlington Heights went one better than his previous start’s 2nd placing when scoring convincingly over 1700m at Grafton earlier this week. Much like his Cox Plate-winning and NZ Champion Sire half-brother Savabeel did with his early crops, Arlington’s progeny are coming into their own as they mature and tackle longer distances. A 2YO-winning, Gr1 placed 3YO, & $1.55 million Magic Millions yearling, now starting to attract better class mares following his first crop’s success and the continuing feats of close relation Black Heart Bart, Arlington will stand for $6,600 inc GST at Tamalee Farm in 2017.

  • Black Heart Bart Wins Gr1 Futurity Stakes

    Mon, 27 Feb 2017

    At Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, Scenic Lodge's VRC Derby-winning sire Blackfriars (Danehill-Kensington Gardens, by Grosvenor) celebrated an elite success when 6YO gelding Black Heart Bart (Blackfriars-Sister Theresa, by At Talaq) scored by 0.1 length for trainer Darren Weir in the $500,000 Gr1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) for 3YO+, over 6YO Japanese-bred entire and stable-mate Tosen Stardom (Deep Impact-Admire Kirameki, by End Sweep) & 7YO New Zealand-bred gelding Ecuador (High Chaparral-Bak da Princess, by Danske). This was the fifth top-flight victory for former West Australian-trained galloper Black Heart Bart who advanced his outstanding record to 16 wins (including the Gr1 C.F. Orr Stakes, Gr1 Underwood Stakes, Gr1 Memsie Stakes, Gr1 Goodwood, Gr2 Lee Steere Stakes, Gr3 Victoria Handicap, Gr3 WATC Northerly Stakes, Listed Birthday Stakes, Listed Bunbury Stakes, Listed Pinjarra Classic, Listed Cyril Flower Stakes, Listed WATC Carbine Club of WA Stakes & Listed WATC Summer Scorcher) and 14 placings (including the Gr1 Caulfield Stakes, Gr1 Makybe Diva Stakes, Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap, Gr1 Newmarket Handicap, Gr1 All Aged Stakes & Gr3 WATC Asian Beau Stakes) from 39 starts for $3,420,950 earnings. "He's just a great horse. Yeah five Group Ones, he's just an unbelievable horse," trainer Darren Weir told Racing.com. "I thought Tosen Stardom was going to win there at one stage but gee, he just keeps coming Black Heart Bart, you wouldn't want him chasing you. What a horse." Black Heart Bart, who was sold for $20,000 at the 2012 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, is out of a half-sister to New Zealand Oaks winner Savannah Success, dam of Cox Plate winner and outstanding young stallion Savabeel and Gr1-placed Tamalee Farm stallion Arlington.

  • Arlington's Early Stats Compare Favourably

    Fri, 17 Feb 2017

    Meanwhile, the victory by Arlington's eighth individual winner, The Lion, in last Friday's prestigious Walcha Maiden highlights the extent to which the career of the close relation to Black Heart Bart is emulating the slow burn path of his half-brother Savabeel, multiple Champion Sire of New Zealand. Both Arlington and Savabeel are out of a dual Gr1-winning half-sister to the dam of Black Heart Bart (see above item). Current runaway NZ leader again in 2016-17, Gr1 Cox Plate hero Savabeel's status as a champion sire has taken time to embed, a characteristic that Gr1-placed Arlington appears to have inherited, with the latter's progeny displaying the same signs that they will improve with time. Other prominent sires who took a little time to come to prominence with their juveniles include exceptional stallions Written Tycoon and Not A Single Doubt, the latter siring his first stakes-winner when his his eldest crop were 4YOs. The status quo augurs well for Arlington whose first crop are current 3YOs, particularly as the bulk of his progeny are only just starting to come into their own.

Black Heart Bart cemented his status as one of the best racehorses in Australia and in the process boosted his already outstanding record to 15 wins (including the Gr1 Underwood Stakes, Gr1 Memsie Stakes, Gr1 Goodwood, Gr2 Lee Steere Stakes, Gr3 Victoria Handicap, Gr3 WATC Northerly Stakes, Listed Birthday Stakes, Listed Bunbury Stakes, Listed Pinjarra Classic, Listed Cyril Flower Stakes, Listed WATC Carbine Club of WA Stakes & Listed WATC Summer Scorcher) and 14 placings (including the Gr1 Caulfield Stakes, Gr1 Makybe Diva Stakes, Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap, Gr1 Newmarket Handicap, Gr1 All Aged Stakes & Gr3 WATC Asian Beau Stakes) from 38 starts for $3,118,950 earnings. "He's a beauty…what a horse to have in your stable," trainer Darren Weir told Racing.com. "He's just bombproof; a great, great racehorse." Weir added: "He will head to the Group One in two weeks. He's in great shape, so it's only racing that will improve him now." The Gr1 Gr1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) will be run at Caulfield on 25 February. Black Heart Bart, who was sold for $20,000 at the 2012 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale, is out of a half-sister to New Zealand Oaks winner Savannah Success, dam of Cox Plate winner and outstanding young stallion Savabeel and Gr1-placed Tamalee Farm stallion Arlington.
