GROUP One winner Onemorenomore arrived at Vinery Stud last week and walked straight into the barn once occupied by his illustrious father, Red Ransom.
Onemorenomore is one of two additions to the Vinery Stud roster in 2010, the other being the American wonder horse and Kentucky Derby/Preakness winner, Big Brown.
“Onemorenomore is a magic looking horse,” says Vinery Stud’s Adam White. “He has plenty of size – he’s 16.1 hands, plenty of substance to go with it and just a really attractive sort of horse.
“He looks a picture at the moment, Patinack have done a really great job with him and we’re ready to show him off because he looks magnificent.”
Onemorenomore’s arrival coincides with the annual Scone in May festivities which is highlighted by the richest ever country race meeting to be in Australia this Friday at White Park.
With so many breeders expected to flock to Australia’s horse capital in the coming days, Vinery Stud are inviting clients and breeders to visit the Stud and see view Onemorenomore for themselves.
“It’s a good opportunity for breeders to see the horse while they are up here for the yearling sale and the races,” White said.
“If they would like to come to the Stud, all they have to do is ring and make an appointment and we’ll be happy to welcome them.”
Onemorenomore is expected to receive a strong book of mares in his opening season, including a number of Patinack Farm owner, Nathan Tinkler’s mares.
Tinkler purchased Onemorenomore for $800,000 at the 2008 Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
Onemorenomore was a racehorse of the highest calibre winning the Group One AJC Champagne Stakes (1600m) by four lengths ahead of Tickets and Manhattan Rain.
“We really wanted a son of Red Ransom and we identified Onemorenomore as the ideal one to have and that’s why we first approached Nathan and the deal was done,” White explained.
“Patinack obviously stand his close relation, Casino Prince, and given our interest in the horse, Nathan saw it as an opportunity to get added support for the horse by standing him here.”
Apart from being his sire’s only Group One winning two-year-old, Red Ransom’s burgeoning reputation as a sire-of-sires was an important factor in Vinery’s decision to target one of his elite sons.
“Red Ransom has obviously started very well as a sire of sires here,” says White.
“He has a pedigree where he outcrosses all of our Danehill bred mares as well as colonial mares.”
