Standing at Kingsley Park, Tasmania in 2018

Multiple Group One winner Toorak Toff entered stud at Rosemont Stud in 2012 and has been relocated to Tasmania’s Kingsley Park for season 2018.

A Group winner at two, Group One winner at three and Group One winner again at four, he was the most highly qualified Australian sprinter to go to stud in Victoria during that year.

The handsome 16.2 chestnut showed his class winning The Janz stakes G3 at two, having already won the Magic Millions Adelaide classic in his juvenile year to stamp himself as an emerging superstar.

He kicked off his three-year-old year winning the Vain Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield, coming from last to beat Star Witness and Soul to earn himself a shot at Randwick’s Golden Rose G1 (1400m).

Again getting back in the field, he proved too strong for the best of his era including Crystal Lily, Ilovethiscity and Hinchinbrook in the process. He went on to run an unlucky fourth in the Group One Caulfield Guineas (1600m) as favourite, to add to his unlucky half length defeat in the Group One AJC Sires’ Produce in his two-year-old year.

Toorak Toff went on as a four year old to prove his wares, winning the Group One Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) beating stars including fellow Group One-winning son of Show A Heart Woorim and stallion prospect Smart Missile. He was set an audacious task to finish his racing career, attempting to be the first horse in 100 years to win the Group One Newmarket (1200m) first-up, finishing five lengths from star sprinter Hay List.

Toorak Toff offers breeders the rare opportunity to access the Star Kingdom blood that has been a surefire pathway to success in Australia for so long.

A son of Show A Heart, from well-related Grand Lodge mare Orong, Toorak Toff was bought by stallion-making trainer Rick Hore-Lacy for $130,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions yearling sale.

Hore-Lacy is best known for purchasing and creating the stallion careers of the mighty Redoutes Choice, Canny Lad and Dash For Cash amongst others and has described Toorak Toff as “the best looking colt of them all”.

With a strike rate of almost 50% runners to winners, it was decided to lease the Toff to Kingsley Park for the 2018 season while Rosemont retains majority ownership. For pedigree advice or more information, please contact Rohan Gudden at KINGSLEY PARK, TASMANIA on 0400 682 099 or [email protected]
