First winner by Sudden Clang

Queensland stallion Sudden Clang moved off the mark at stud when his first foal Pricklethorp won at Bundaberg on Saturday.

Pricklethorp (3g Sudden Clang – Realt by Reenact) bolted in by three lengths on debut in the Perfection Fresh Maiden Plate (1212m).  He’s a homebred for Geoff Mooney and is trained locally by Laura Cronan.

Mooney stands Sudden Clang at Waverley Stud in Mt Perry.  “He lost an eye as a yearling and didn’t race,” he said.  “I put him over my own mares and a few from outside clients.”

Sudden Clang is a son of G1 Golden Slipper sire Clang and his dam Dokic (Kenvain) won four races around the Queensland provincials for trainer Tony Sears and Gainsborough Lodge.  His second-dam is a three-quarter sister to Lindsay Park’s Group 1 star Planet Ruler.
