Monday, 15 April 2019 | Geisel Park graduates Skinnen Tins and Classic Pro have augmented another successful week for the stud’s resident sire All American.

Skinnen Tins (Patronize) was sold by Geisel Park at the 2015 Magic Millions and she won for the fourth time at Ascot on April 6.  Classic Pro (Proart) was part of the Myalup nursery’s draft to the 2017 Magic Millions and she just missed black-type when fourth in the LR Raconteur Stakes on Saturday.

All American sired a half-dozen winners at home and abroad last week starting with Mercy Hill (NZ) and a Dark Dream – Green Card double at Sha Tin.

Dark Dream put his G1 Hong Kong Derby (2000m) fourth behind him with a smart score in the Class 1 Harlech Hcp (2000m).  Six of the Derby defeated lined up and it was the 2018 G1 Queensland Derby winner who did best on the quick back-up.

He stopped the clock at 1.59.66s which broke a class-record set 19 years ago.  It was also the third-fastest time ever recorded over the 2000m trip at Sha Tin.

Winning jockey Zac Purton feels that there’s better to come from Dark Dream.  “He’s just not the finished product yet,” the champion hoop said after another four-timer at Sha Tin.  “His behaviour was much better behind the gate and he put himself in the right spot.

“The race was run to suit but he had to make a long run and then wandered about in the straight until I gave him a couple of cracks.  We haven’t seen his best yet.”

Trainer Frankie Lor revealed the immediate plan for Dark Dream is the G1 QEII Cup (2000m) on April 28.

All American (Red Ransom) has sired 44 winners of 62 races in Australia this season for earnings of $1.71 million.
