Mr Stunning does it again
The dust had barely had a chance to settle on the award that Tony had picked up on Thursday night for ‘Champion Victorian Bred International Horse’ for Mr Stunning before the superstar had won the Hong Kong sprint for the second time. Bringing his tally to 2 Group one victories and 3 at Group Two level, the MAKYBE bred gelding has cemented his position as one of the best sprinters on the circuit. With earnings now beyond the AU$8m mark, the $110,000 paid for this son of Exceed and Excel now seems paltry.
Foaled down for Makybe at the then Yallambee Stud by Rick and Christie Woodard, Mr Stunning always had a good physique and good confirmation. A little light boned initially, the decision was made to sell as a weanling at the Great Southern Sale.
