Casino Prince | Bay Entire (2003)
Australia's Leading First Season Sire
We saw Casino Prince's star qualities as a two year old with three brilliant wins headed by the Group 3 Skyline Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick.
On his return as a three year old he took out the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (1600m) before lining up against star filly Miss Finland in the Group 1 Cadbury Guineas (1600m) to be narrowly beaten in the last few strides.
The highlight of his racing career was beating the star mare Tuesday Joy as a four-year-old in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick where he proved his class as one of Australia's toughest and most talented racehorses.
The 2011 12 racing season has seen Casino Prince's first crop of two year olds step onto racetracks around the country in impressive style. He has already sired seven individual winners, including the very exciting multiple stakes winner ALL TOO HARD. Together with a number of placegetters on metropolitan tracks showing good speed at an early age, Casino Prince's progeny earnings have earned him the title of leading Australian first season sire.
