When High Earner was sweeping about the country winning Group 1 finals and living up to his name, we kept a very close eye on his damline.
It was a damline we wanted at Jackson Kennels.
Fortunately, we were able to buy High Earner's litter sister Another Request (Collision-Double Guess). She was a pretty hot race bitch herself winning to top grade at Albion Park and over 600m at The Meadows.
We mated Another Request to Brett Lee and got the South Australian superstar Genghis Kahn a powerhouse middle distance galloper.
To Premier Fantasy, Another Request has already produced a number of city performers including Wentworth Park winner Hector Kahn and we are looking forward to breeding with the bitches from that mating.
Now Another Request has been mated to Fabregas. He is already proving a potential superstar sire and the crosses we pick up in this mating to Another Request, we expect, will add to his growing reputation.
The features of this cross are many. One is a duplication and important balance of "chase" influence Head Honcho. Another is a duplication and balance of Ginger.
But we also have a link between Fabregas' damsire, the great Larkhill Jo, and Curryhill Brute who is found in the damline of Another Request.
Many of the best progeny of Another Request's brother High Earner are bred on a link to Curryhill Brute.
Another Request was a special race bitch and she is a special producer. We fully expect her Fabregas offspring to be just as special.
