Leonardo’s half-brother arrives in time for Guineas

WA stud Gervase Park will have cause for double celebration if Leonardo Da Hinchi wins tomorrow’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

A half-brother to the Group 2-winning colt by Awesome Rock arrived safely at Chris and Andrea Gales’ West Swan-based stud on Thursday night.

“He arrived just in time for the Caulfield Guineas!” Andrea Gales said.

“The colt is a lovely strong-looking individual with plenty of scope and bone.

“He will grow into an impressive-looking yearling for 2020 and hopefully Leonardo Da Hinchi will have a few more outstanding runs under his belt by then in Group races.”

Gervase Park bred Leonardo Da Hinchi and sold the son of the ill-fated Hinchinbrook for $100,000 at the 2017 Magic Millions Perth yearling sale.

The Darren Weir-trained colt has won three of five starts, including the Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley last start, and is a $9.50 chance in the Guineas.

He will race for his WA syndicate of owners, who met with Swettenham Stud’s Adam Sangster on Thursday night to discuss a possible stud deal.

“We had a chat about different ways to do it, but we just want to race the horse,” part-owner Glen Kettlewell said.

“They’re still very interested. We’ve just got to win the Guineas now. I’m sure he’ll run a good race.”
