Bar Set For Siblings Of First Tassie 2YO Race Winner

Thursday, 24th October 2013

The siblings of the winner of Tasmania's first 2YO race of the new season, the Debutante Plate (900m) have something to live up to. Last Sunday's juvenile winner Admiral is by Vinery Stud stallion Mossman, and is the second foal of West Quest mare Reunification, whose career netted 12 wins from 28 career starts. Reunification has since dropped a colt foal by Sebring and she has just been covered by Newgate Farm's son of Fastnet Rock, Foxwedge. Campbell enjoyed a lot of success with last season's top Tassie 2YO Grand Tycoon (Written Tycoon), the winner of seven from eight, and while he is not saying Admiral is in the same mould he did infer the gelding was capable of a lot more than he showed on debut and may be even better as he matures.
