WHITTINGTON – A STAKES WINNING 2YO
Grandview Stud in conjunction with the Whittington Syndicate QLD are thrilled to announce that outstanding Stakes Winning sprinter Whittington will be standing again this forthcoming season at Grandview Stud (Peak Crossing QLD).
Whittington exploded onto the scene in October 2012 taking out the time-honored Breeders Plate in dominant fashion showing his rivals a clean pair of heels powering away to win.
Whittington came back as a three-year-old and mixed it with the best sprinters the country has to offer after taking out the Magic Millions Sprint defeating the older horses in blistering fashion, stopping the clock at 1:01.77 for the 1100m smashing the track record.
Whittington has covered two good books of mares and his first foals are outstanding types and will be well worth a look at the upcoming weanling sales.
The striking son of Tale of the Cat is an impeccable type and possesses the strength and speed that has been the precedent for shire success in Queensland
Promoting high praise from both trainer and jockey, Gai Waterhouse “He won the Breeders Plate in dominant fashion and today he has shown you just what an outstanding sprinter he is!”, Tommy Berry “He flew today!.. You would never dream of getting beaten on a horse the way he went today!”
