Dundeel x Ocean Gate yearling filly was purchased at the Melbourne Premier Sale in 2022 and will be trained by Matthew Dunn at Warwick Farm.


Filly is by Champion middle distance racehorse DUNDEEL who was a six-time Group 1 winner. Now one of Australia's most exciting young sires with 5 Group 1 winners from his first two crops including SUPER SETHCASTELVECCHIO, YOURDEEL & TRULY GREAT!

Dam OCEAN GATE was an unraced mare by SEBRING from a family littered with black-type winners. She is a full sister to Group 2, Group 3 and Listed placed Revolving Door and half-sister to Group 2 placed Golden Spin.


Current Group 2 winner Vangelic is also in the family.


Filly was outstanding value and the aim during her career in the first 18 months is to target Sydney city racing and black type races. Any success at this level will see her value skyrocket in the breeding barn.


The Dundeel x Ocean Gate filly will be owned by the breeding syndicate and pay for her upkeep (training fees) and retain prizemoney during her career. Post her racing career a decision will be made by the breeding syndicate whether to sell her as a race filly/broodmare or retain for breeding.


Purchased at the 2022 Magic Millions Broodmare sale, the attractive mare is in-foal to Spirit of Boom.

Shorthand is by leading sire Written Tycoon with her Dam Imtops winning 6 races during her career including 3 at Sydney metro level.

Shorthand only had the two career starts, winning on debut in Victoria and placing at her second start before being retire to stud.

She is a big strong and attractive mare and we like the mating with Spirit of Boom. An attractive foal is expected to sell for $150,000 as a yearling.

Shorthand has a nice pedigree. She is a half sister to Sandy Darling who is the Dam of Twist Tops.

Twist Tops was a Listed winner at two and Group 2 placed during her career.

Twist Tops has two horses on the ground, 2 year old Deep Field Colt that sold for $200,000 as a yearling (Les Bridge trains) and yearling Justify Colt that sold for $225,000 (Chris Waller trains). If one of these young horses can perform at stakes level in the next 6-12 months the value of our mare will increase.

We believe we have found great value with Shorthand in a very strong selling market.
