Black type abounds in Lang Bloodstock’s colt

By Peter Wharton

Buyers at the inaugural Nutrien Equine Standardbred Yearling Sale at Oaklands Junction on Sunday looking for a trotter with star potential should not go past Lot 174.

The only nomination from Lang Bloodstock, of Chris and Haley Lang, the bay colt, by the French champion Orlando Vici out of the New Zealand mare Top Of The Anvils. has everything – he looks the part, he’s a natural trotter and has a great pedigree.

His sire, Orlando Vici, a prolific winner on the European Grand Circuit, has had the amazing score of having sired 10 individual winners from his first Australian crop of 11 foals. His progeny include the NSW Derby winner Xebec, the Vicbred Final placegetter Brandlo Prince, Beau Garcon (Breeders Crown 2YO Silver), Deneuve Star, Adelle, Just Believe (Vicbred 3YO Silver) and Orlando Storm.

On his dam’s side, the colt has winners and ‘black type’ all down his pedigree page. There’s an Inter Dominion champion, an Oaks winner, a Bill Collins Sprint victor, a NZ Trotting Free-for-all winner and a NZ 2YO Colt and Filly Trotter of the Year.

Top Of The Anvils, the colt’s dam, left the multiple Group placegetter Parisian Amore (1:59.7) and the Vicbred Homegrown Classic heat winner Saint Germain with her first two foals.

She is a half-sister to a fine trotter and Oaks placegetter in Courchevel, the NZ Oaks winner and Breeders Crown placegetter Chevron Express and the NZ Sales Classic victor Thebestlove.

The colt’s grand-dam, the NZ 2YO Filly of the Year Kathy Galleon, was a half-sister to six winners including a champion trotter in Galleon’s Sunset, a winner of 14 races and $343,849 including the 2008 Inter Dominion Grand Final, and the NZ 2YO Trotting Colt of the Year The Ultimate Galleon.

In the back removes of the colt’s pedigree are trotters of the calibre of Last Sunset (NZ Trotting Free-for-all and two ID heats), Real Deal Yankee (NZ Hambletonian), Great Getaway and Tricky Ric.  

Furthermore, Last Sunset figures as the sire of the former top racemare She’s An Image, the dam of an Andover Hall colt offered by Lang Bloodstock at last year’s APTS sale which fetched the equal highest price of $55,000.

Interestingly, the colt’s family is crossing particularly well with stallions boasting European blood. Parisian Amore, Saint Germain, Courchevel and Thebestlove were all sired by European stallions as is the case with Lot 174, a son of Orlando Vici.

“You can’t fault him. He’s a well grown, muscular colt and he’s very correct,” Chris Lang said.

To arrange an inspection and for further information phone Haley Lang on 0436 475 659.

Three-quarter brother to Ride High

By Peter Wharton


Prior to a leg injury in his last start Ride High was widely acclaimed as the best pacer in Australia. So much so that he was purchased for what is believed to be a record price for a ‘Down Under’ pacer.

The son of Art Major had taken all before him in a sensational 12-month period winning eleven wins on the bounce including the Breeders Crown 3YO Final (beating Poster Boy), the Victorian 4YO & 5YO Championship and several free-for-alls at Melton.

In all, Ride High has won 16 of his 18 starts to date and $289,427 in stakes and holds a mile record of 1:49. Last June he clocked the fastest ever last 800 metres at Melton in a stunning 52.7 seconds. Impressing further is his next level speed and ability to finish off races in 25 second quarters.  

A rare opportunity to purchase a three-quarter brother-in-blood to Ride High is in the making in Lot 240 at the inaugural Nutrien Equine Standardbred Yearling Sale at Oaklands Junction on Sunday, April 11.

The classy Art Major colt is out of the 2016 Victorian Broodmare of the Year Celebrity Ball, whose daughter, All The Magic, ranks as the dam of Ride High.

All The Magic is also the dam of the Breeders Crown and Vicbred Super Series champion Rocknroll Magic 1:54.5 ($466,183), the Group winner Always Fast 1:52.8 ($117,960) and All A Breeze (1:55.2) from only five foals of racing age.

Celebrity Ball, the dam of Lot 240, has been one of the gems of the Australian stud book.  She is the dam of six individual winners – all in better than 2:00 - including the Group winner and Vicbred placegetter Starburst Girl 1:53.6 ($143,670), the Victoria Sapling Stakes, Golden Nursery and Southern Cross 2YO Final winner Our Celebrity 1:55.1 ($130,019) and the dual Oaks placegetter Celebrity Guest (1:55.2).

One of Celebrity Ball’s daughters, the Art Major mare Celebrity Lass (1:57.6), left last year’s SA BOTRA 2YO Pace winner and Southern Cross placegetter Celebrity Chef (1:58.2).

It is worth noting that Art Major is ‘clicking’ well with members of the family of Australian Broodmare of the Year Larrakeyah Lady, whose family today is one of the best in the Australian stud book.

Besides Ride High, Art Major over daughters and granddaughters of Larrakeyah Lady have produced the Miracle Mile contestant Out To Play (Vicbred 3YO Final), Major Secret (NSW Derby), Major Times (Bunbury Cup), the Southern Cross winners That’s Perfect and Perfect Look, Perfect Major (WA Preux Chevalier), Starburst Girl (Vic. Silver Chalice), He’s Magic Red and many more.
