Weekend Hussler Full-Sister Born At Arrowfield
In the NSW Hunter Valley, a full-sister to recently-crowned Australian Horse-Of-The-Year & multiple Gr1-winning 4YO gelding Weekend Hussler (Hussonet-Weekend Beauty, by Helissio) was born at Arrowfield Stud. Operations manager Sam Fairgray commented: "She's a lovely filly. She's leggy, tall & correct. We couldn't be happier with her." Weekend Hussler (an $80,000 yearling consigned by Arrowfield at the 2006 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale) currently boasts 12 wins (including last start's Gr1 Underwood Stakes over 1800m at Caulfield on September 20, plus the Gr1 George Ryder Stakes, Gr1 Royal Randwick Guineas, Gr1 Newmarket Handicap, Gr1 Oakleigh Plate, Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes, Gr1 Caulfield Guineas, Gr2 Memsie Stakes & Gr2 Makybe Diva Stakes) & a runner-up (in the Gr2 Liston Stakes) from 15 starts for $3,058,900 earnings. His Arrowfield-based stallion Hussonet (Mr Prospector-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba) was Champion Sire of Chile 6 times & last year added Australia's Champion 2nd-Season Sire title. Hussonet will cover a full book of mares at Arrowfield this season at a $137,500 fee.
