New Stallions for New South Wales (continued)
LORD OF THE SKY
Bay horse, 2010
Standing at Kingstar Farm, Denman
Fee: $7,700
From the Danehill (USA) male line and carrying the blood of
Bletchingly, Lord of the Sky was a tough and highly talented short
course sprinter who did most of his racing in strong Melbourne
company.
He won three stakes events, the VRC Standish Handicap (Gr. 3,
1200m), the MRC Bletchingly Stakes (Gr. 3, 1200m) and the MRC Sir
John Monash Stakes (Gr. 3,1100m).
In total Lord of the Sky won seven races and was second on five
occasions to earn $1,126,150 in prizemoney.
Danerich, the sire of Lord of the Sky, was a stakes winner who has
made the most of the opportunities given him at stud in Victoria
and his other black type winners are Rich Charm, Richie’s Vibe,
Didntcostalot, Heaven’s Riches, Classy Chloe, Flying Skipper and
Streetcar Isabelle.
Out of former top two-year-old Millrich, Danerich is a half-brother to
ATC The Everest winner Redzel whose earnings are just short of $8.7
million.
Lord of the Sky’s dam Princess Abassi won five races up to 1300m
including two in Melbourne and comes from a female line with its
origins in New Zealand.

Princess Abassi’s sire Abassi is not well known but is by champion
sire Bletchingly from a German mare so bred on similar lines to
Kingston Town.

Further back in the pedigree there is more stamina through such sires
as Patron Saint (GB), Marco Polo II (FR) and Contact.

MERCHANT NAVY
Bay horse, 2014
Standing at Coolmore Stud, Jerrys Plains
Fee: $55,000
Merchant Navy’s twice champion sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill) is
having another excellent season in Australia, recently notching his
136th stakes winner worldwide and his 34th Group One winner when
Unforgotten captured the 2018 ATC Australian Oaks (Gr. 1, 2400m) in
record time.
A sprinting Group One winner for him is Coolmore’s new sire
Merchant Navy, brilliant victor of last spring’s VRC Coolmore Stud
(Ascot Vale) Stakes (Gr.1, 1200m) and more recently a close up and
somewhat unlucky third against the best older sprinters in the VRC
Newmarket Handicap (Gr. 1, 1200m)
Following that run Merchant Navy (current Timeform rating 126p) has
been sent to Ireland’s great trainer Aidan O’Brien with the plan of racing
at Royal Ascot in June before returning to Australia for his first stud season
winning impressively Greenlands Stakes in Ireland in his lead up start.
Also a stakes winner in Melbourne as a two-year-old, Merchant Navy
has to date raced eight times over two seasons for five wins and two
thirds to earn $939,850 in Australia.
At two years Merchant Navy won the MRC H D F McNeil Stakes (Gr. 3,
1200m) but his class and ability really shone through in the Coolmore
Stud Stakes when he produced a dramatic, power finish to win.
The female half of Merchant Navy’s pedigree is as impressive as the
male half as his dam Legally Bay is a brilliant, dual stakes winning
daughter of Snippets and has also bred Merchant Navy’s stakes
winning sister Jolie Bay.

Legally Bay’s dam Decidity (Last Tycoon) was a smart performer but a
far better producer, also leaving multiple black type winner Bonaria,
earner of $951,000 from her successes which included the VRC Myer
Classic (Gr. 1, 1600m) and Group Three winner Time Out.
In turn, Decidity is a half-sister to multiple stakes winner Classy Fella
from Class, a daughter of stakes producer Pirouette whose dam Gypsy
Moss (IRE) was a stakes winner in Australia and remembered as the
mother of QTC Queensland Derby (Gr. 1, 2400m) winner Our Planet
and his stakes winning brother Gypsy Kingdom, a successful sire.
