God's Own Half-Sibling Debut Today
Shehadtohavehim, a half-brother to Gr1-winning stallion God's Own, will debut at Taree today. The gelding will carry top weight for Cessnock trainer Todd Howlett in the Sunne Printing 2YO Maiden Handicap (1250m) and be ridden by apprentice Rachael Murray. Owned by Dato Tan Chin Nam and trained by Bart Cummings, God's Own (Redoute's Choice-Angel in Disguise, by Sky Chase) won the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas before retiring to stud at Eliza Park. He now stands at Greta West Stud in Victoria for $5,500. Shehadtohavehim & God's Own's dam is the Sky Chase mare Angel In Disguise, making her a three-parts sibling to multiple Gr1-winning champion Saintly. Shehadtohavehim was a $105,000 purchase at the 2012 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the consignment of Edinglassie Stud.
