Typhoon to stand at Bulla­rook

The Sportsman Weekend - - Chartform - By SHAYNE O’CASS

THE one and only foal of the ill-fated Horse of the Year Typhoon Tracy will carry on her legacy at stud.

The aptly-named Last Typhoon will stand at Bulla­rook Stud in Vic­to­ria a fee of $4400.

Typhoon Tracy won six Group 1 races dur­ing a stel­lar ca­reer that saw her crowned Aus­tralian Horse of the Year in 2009/10.

The daugh­ter Red Ran­som and South African cham­pion Tracy’s El­e­ment re­tired to stud in the 2011 sea­son with a visit to Street Cry.

Sadly, the mare died soon af­ter foal­ing re­sult­ing colt – hence name Last Typhoon.

Last Typhoon was passed in at $2.1m at the 2014 Inglis Aus­tralian Easter Year­ling Sale, $500,000 more than the even­tual sale top­per.

The son of Winx’s sire, Street Cry, was re­tained by his breeder John Hutchins who bred and raced Typhoon Tracy through­out her il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer.

Orig­i­nally housed with Typhoon Tracy’s trainer Peter Moody, Last Typhoon, won at Bairnd­sale and Don­ald over 2000m both times.

“The Street Cry in­flu­ence is a big tick for me,” said Bulla­rook’s Mal­colm Boyd.

“He is a cham­pion sire, proven in Aus­tralian con­di­tions, who has three sons at stud in Vic­to­ria and this fel­low is from a sim­ply out­stand­ing fam­ily.”

Street Cry is a proven sire of sires with Per In­canto, Shock­ing, Boss and Street Sense all sir­ing Aus­tralasian Group 1 win­ners.

Last Typhoon will stand along­side Lu­cas Cranach, Strate­gic Manuever and Helis­sio son Aze­vado.
