Shinzig | Bay Entire (2001)
Facts are facts ... there are 7 Australian Group One winning sons of Danehill standing at stud in Australia (with a maximum winning distance of 1600m) and 6 of them have runners.
The 6 - Redoute's Choice, Flying Spur, Danzero, Danasinga, Exceed And Excel and Fastnet Rock - all have produced Group One winners in their own right.
The seventh? Shinzig! With his oldest progeny now yearlings, Shinzig has it all before him.
Firstly, Shinzig won the toughest CF Orr Stakes-G1 in history: defeating no less than 12 Group One winners and remained highly competitive throughout his career, finishing within 3.2 lengths of the winner in no less than nine Group One events (including a half length second to 5-time Group One winner Darchi Brahma).
Secondly, Shinzig is by Danehill - the 'surest bet' in the breeding world and, thirdly, he's out of the Group One winning mare Shindig, who still holds the track record for 1500m at Rosehill.
Finally, Shinzig's first two books of mares have included Group One winners Northwood Plume, Chlorophyll and Love to Dance, plus the dams of Group One winners Stella Cadente and Tears I Cry.
Shinzig ... it's Group One all the way.
