PIINMEDOWN FETCHES GREAT PRICE

Trained by Mike Moroney and Pam Gerard, Group Two & Three winning mare Pinmedown (5 m Pins – Alleyway, by Oregon) fetched a terrific price at the 2021 Inglis Chairman’s Sale on Friday (7 May) at Riverside, Warwick Farm, in N.S.W.

After leaving on 27 March to prepare at Newgate Farm, Pinmedown was lot 46 in a total of 66 and sold for $630,000 to Newhaven Park (as agent).

Owned by Savvy Racing Blues Syndicate (Mgr: Keith McDonald), Lois & Mike Wilson, Noel Gurney, Richard Sims, Adrian Mathieson, Rob Alderson, Ken & Bev Cherry, and Ballymore New Zealand, Pinmedown was selected as a yearling by Paul Moroney and purchased for $28,000 at the 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock Select Sale, from the draft of Ardsley Stud, who prepared the horse for breeder Pat Lowry.

Pinmedown won four times, including the Eight Carat Classic (Gr. 2, 1600m) and Sunline Vase (Gr. 3, 2100m), both at Ellerslie.

A filly with ever increasing value, Pinmedown is a three-quarter sister to Hong Kong Horse of the Year (twice) Ambitious Dragon (Pins), who won 13 races, including six Group One, and the equivalent of NZ$10.9 million in prize money. While sire Pins (Snippets) was twice crowned Champion Sire in Hong Kong, largely due to the feats of Ambitious Dragon.

The dam side of the family has left some very talented and classy performers. Obviously Ambitious Dragon, but also stakes winning mares Roxon (Postponed), Delightful (Omnicorp), and the very good producer Sky Mist (Sky Chase).
