Mossman claimed the honour of siring Australia’s first two-year-old winner for the 2010/11 season on the same day as producing yet another Stakes Winner in New Zealand.
Trained by Jackie Crompton, Double Impact worked home stylishly on the inside of runners to race clear for an easy two length win in the $75,000 Hopeful Plate (1000m) at Toowoomba on Saturday.
The Hopeful Plate has a proud history of producing quality juveniles and today’s winner Double Impact looks to have an exciting future.
The Mossman gelding was purchased by senior part owner Jimmy Georgiou for just $35,000 at this year’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale and has already won Georgiou and his nine co-owners $48,000 from his debut win.
Bred by Gerry Harvey and sold through his Baramul Stud draft at the Gold Coast, Double Impact is out of the lightly raced Barathea mare Cornish Moss, a half sister to the Melbourne stakes winner Heaps Of Fun.
Cornish Moss is from the Moonee Valley winner Calemoss, a half sister to Group One winner Caledonian Boy as well as the dam of the G1 Thousand Guineas winner Lady Of The Pines.
The win capped a successful day for Vinery Stud stallion Mossman who was represented by today’s Bonecrusher Stakes winner Hoofit at Ellerslie in New Zealand.
A half sister to Double Impact, by Danewin’s G1 winning son Excites, is set to go under the hammer at the 2011 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.
