After a very successful sale at the Gold Coast (click here to read all about it), Rosemont Stud eagerly awaits returning in 2015 to sell the first crop of resident stallion Toorak Toff.
If this foal is any example of the quality that his sire is throwing, there could well be a barn full of Toffs at the sale!!
A stunning first foal, this colt is out of the four-time winning Fastnet Rock mare Luminous Harmony, herself from the family of Champion sire Quiet American, a winner of the Group One NYRA Mile at Aqueduct.
With his first book of mares producing some outstanding types, so impressed were breeders that his second book of mares was considerably larger than his first.
A Magic Millions Yearling Sale graduate himself, Toorak Toff was devastating on the track, winning on debut before taking out the Adelaide Magic Millions 2YO Classic at his third start followed by victory in the Group Three Jansz Stakes. Narrowly beaten at his next two starts, both at Group One level, the son of Show A Heart headed for spell with Group One aims as a three-year-old.
Winning the Listed Vain Stakes first up, defeating a class field including Soul, Star Witness, General Truce and Shrapnel, Toorak Toff headed to Sydney for his next start and was dominate in the Group One Golden Rose, defeating Squamosa and Ilovethiscity, leaving a host of stakes winners behind, including the Group One Golden Slipper winner of the previous year in Crystal Lily.
It is interesting to note that the winner of the Group One Golden Rose the year prior was Lonhro colt Denman, who has been all the rage with his first two crops – his first runner was a stakes winner!
As a four-year-old “The Toff” was once again successful at Group One level, taking out the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes by a length-and-a-half, a race won in the past by Champion Sires Exceed And Excel, Testa Rossa and Encosta de Lago!
