Strong Early Support For Rosemont Stud's Toorak Toff
Victoria's Rosemont Stud, whose stallion operations will move in August to their newly acquired (from Makybe) Gnarwarre property, reports exceptionally strong early support for dual Gr1-winning freshman sire Toorak Toff (Show A Heart-Orong, by Grand Lodge) with 65 mares already booked. Standing his 1st season at $16,5000 alongside Danzero, Toorak Toff was a $135,000 yearling consigned by Glenlogan Park at the 2009 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale. He recorded 6 wins (including 2011's Gr1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield, plus 2010's Gr1 Golden Rose over 1400m at Rosehill, Gr3 Jansz National Stakes over 1200m at Morphettville, Listed Vain Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield & Magic Millions Classic over 1200m at Morphettville) & 2 placings (including 2011's Gr3 Tab.com.au Stakes over 1400m at Flemington & 2010's Gr3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude over 1400m at Caulfield) from 18 starts for $1,293,520 earnings.
