Black Sheep does Hallmark proud
04 Jul 2014The Flemington-trained Black Sheep looks to have a bright future ahead of him following his maiden success at Cranbourne yesterday.
The Hallmark Stud graduate, who had placed at his two previous appearances in Victoria, was a comfortable winner over 1400 metres.
Black Sheep was originally purchased by Masterton agent Bruce Perry for $20,000 out of the farm’s Select Sale draft to Karaka in 2012.
He finished third in his sole New Zealand start at Gisborne last sprint for Guy Lowry and Grant Cullen before his sale to Australian interests.
Now prepared by Stephen Brown, Black Sheep is a son of Savabeel and the unraced Danasinga mare Demerara.
She is from a well-known Australian family that features the dual Group One Chipping Norton and Ryder Stakes winner Wong and the Gr 2 Alister Clark winner Domesky.
