Valuable Fastnet Rock Colt On Debut
Trainer Bevan Laming will unveil beautifully-bred colt Fastnet Cove (Fastnet Rock-Freckled Face, Polish Patriot) in the Ascend Sales QTIS Two-Years-Old Handicap (1030m) at Doomben in Brisbane today. Laming picked up the 2YO for $370,000 at the 2012 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, an investment that will undoubtedly prove quite astute should he win a stakes race during his career. From the 4-time winning Polish Patriot mare Freckled Face, Fastnet Cove is a half-brother to Gr3 VRC Bobby Lewis Quality winner and stallion Face Value (Red Ransom), sire of Listed winner Hidden Value & Gr3 winner Silent Surround. Fastnet Cove can be expected to have plenty of speed, boasting a 3Mx3F cross of Danzig through his grandsire Danehill and damsire Polish Patriot.
