First stakes winner by Amadeus Wolf

Caledonian Spring gave Chatswood Stud shuttler Amadeus Wolf his first stakes winner at Haydock on Saturday.

He is one of 13 individual winners from the first northern crop of Amadeus Wolf who retired to the Irish National Stud in 2008.

Caledonian Spring (2c Amadeus Wolf – Mathuna by Tagula) was an Ascot winner in July and he broke through at black-type level with a three-length victory in the Listed Ascendant Stakes.  He holds entries for the G1 Dewhurst Stakes and G1 Racing Post Trophy in October.

Amadeus Wolf (Mozart) won the Middle Park in 2005.  He covered 62 mares in his first season in Victoria last spring and will stand at an $11,000 (inc gst) fee this year.

Caledonian Spring was bred in Ireland by Patrick Cosgrove and is the first foal produced by Mathuna.  She was a juvenile winner in France and is a half-sister to G3 Prix Chloe winner Wilside and LR Prix Coronation winner Round Heels.

Her stakes winning son was bought by pin-hooker Con Marnane for 20,000 euros at the 2010 Goffs Orby yearling sale and was resold to Ross Doyle for 50,000 pounds at the Goffs Kempton 2YO Sale in March.

Marnane also sold Amadeus Wolf as a 2YO for 50,000 guineas at Tattersalls in April 2005.
