First winner for Outback Prince

Clear Mountain Fairview stallion Outback Prince was represented by his first winner at Rockhampton on Thursday.  The G1 T J Smith 2YO Classic winner got off the mark when the Lyle Rowe trained filly Hallowed Pearl saluted in the SMR Advertising Plate (1050m).

It was a great result all-round for Clear Mountain Fairview.  Runner-up Desert Playboy (Tycoon Ruler) is also by a resident of the Greenmount based stud.

Outback Prince has 63 foals from his first crop and Hallowed Pearl was just his second starter.  The Rockhampton winner was bred by Murray Murdoch and was a $16,000 buy out of the 2010 MM QTIS 600 Sale.

Hallowed Pearl (2f Outback Prince – Kashkow by Kashani) is from a precocious filly who earned Listed placings in the AJC Gimcrack Stakes, VATC Debutante Stakes and VRC Ottawa Stakes at her first three starts.

Kashkow has also thrown the Brisbane winner Casholet (Hussonet) and foaled a filly by Court Command on October 26.

After his Brisbane G1 victory, Outback Prince returned at three to win the G2 Hobartville Stakes and was also G1 placed in the AJC Spring Champion Stakes and STC Rosehill Guineas.

Outback Prince (Desert Prince) is a half-brother to Hotel Grand (Grand Lodge), a G1 winner of the AJC Spring Champion Stakes and Randwick Guineas.  His initial crop are also two –year-olds and his first winner isn’t far away, either.

Hotel Grand colt Metonymy earned black-type on debut in the Listed MRC Merson Cooper Stakes at Sandown on November 13.  Trainer Peter Moody has nominated him for the Transpacific Cleanaway Plate at Moonee Valley this Saturday.

Hotel Grand stands at Racetree for a $13,200 fee.   Outback Prince is priced on application.
