Another Group 1 Victory for Superb SAVABEEL Sensation SHILLELAGH

04 Nov 18


Shillelagh (NZ) (Savabeel x Trocair) returned to Flemington and claimed her second Group 1 victory with an awesome display, to capture the EMPIRE ROSE Stakes 1600m Gr1 for Fillies and Mares on the opening day of the four-day Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Shillelagh had won the Gr1 Kennedy Mile (1600m) on the same programme last year.

Ridden by James McDonald, Shillelagh was backed from $7.50 to $6.50 before winning by 1-1/4 lengths.

Shillelagh had been aimed at last year’s Empire Rose Stakes only for the mare to be balloted from the 1600m race at acceptance time.

“She ran well at Caulfield, as she did last year, and the writing was on the wall she was going to run well and her racing style says she needs Flemington,” said her trainer.




Shillelagh is a seven-year-old mare.

“She’s pretty good winning two time-honoured Group One mile races here at Flemington and she was pretty good in an Epsom and her run in the Toorak was pretty good from a long way back,” her trainer added.

Shillelagh was retained by breeders Christopher and Susanna Grace from NZ.

Shillelagh has been entered for the Gr.1 Railway Stakes (1600m) and the Gr.1 Kingston Town Stakes (1800m) at ascot in Perth.

Whilst the stable is keen to try the mare at 2000m and may back her up in the Gr.2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m) next Saturday, its believed the 1800m of the Kingston Town may suit.

McDonald didn’t leave the fence on the mare, gaining a run in the last 150m and sprinting clear for an easy win.

“It’s great how it all worked out,” McDonald said.

“She travelled so beautifully in the running line and was probably fifth-back the fence.

“I was on the right horse and peaked to perfection.”

Dynamic Syndications purchased 3 yearlings by Champion sire Savabeel this year and unsurprisingly each of them have shown excellent ability in early training.


The Savabeel we purchased from the INGLIS CLASSIC Sale is a Spectacular individual that we have a huge opinion of.

He is from the mare TIARA (by O’Reilly).


Our SAVABEEL x TIARA Colt



We are yet to officially go to market with him, as we intended to finish the year with a bang by offering a super colt by the super sire.

Impressively, on displayed early raw ability, he could be destined for high quality racetrack success.

He’s been specifically purchased to be our Classics candidate – a horse to aim at the life changing races as a 3yo such as the Guineas, Derbies and Cups and maybe the Plate !

He is bred on what we have highlighted above to be statistically the “Best Cross” for Savabeel progeny, the Savabeel x O’Reilly cross.

He’s our own Ready-To-Run candidate.

If Owning a Share in a High Quality Racehorse capable of aiming at the Big CLASSIC Races is your dream then become involved.

If you want to own a the Progeny of Champion Sire SAVABEEL - there are only 2 crosses to concentrate on - O'REILLY and PINS.

With the statistics heavily geared in your favour for a COLT bred on the SAVABEEL x O'REILLY cross - you simply can't find better anywhere.
