Yearling Bay or Brown Colt

  • Sire: Your Song (by Fastnet Rock)
  • Dam: Sarthemare (by Street Cry {IRE})
  • Foal Date: November 16, 2018 (AUS)

A nicely balanced, good moving colt by good young sire YOUR SONG (Fastnet Rock), out of a stakes-winning 2yo.

On day 2 of the Inglis Classic sale, Nigel was quite taken by a son of YOUR SONG, a fast son of Fastnet Rock and a magnificent individual.

In a brief career of just nine races, YOUR SONG won three races and placed three times. Two of those wins were as a two-year-old in Sydney. He then returned for a three-year-old season where he competed solely at Group level. A second to PIERRO in the Group 3 Run to the Rose was backed up with another placing in the Group 3 Roman Consul Stakes. But in the Autumn, first up, Your Song was a dominant winner of the Group 1 BTC Cup beating Better Than Ready.

Your Song is represented by 150 runners from his first two crops (now four and five-year-olds). Of those, a very healthy 69% are winners and three are stakes-winners.

His two best performers are GEM SONG and BRAVE SONG. GEM SONG won the Group 3 STC Eskimo Prince Qlty and Group 3 BRC Gunsynd Classic, placed in four other stakes races and finished fourth in the Group 1 Epsom Hcp and Doomben Cup. BRAVE SONG won the Group 3 Healey Stakes win and recorded a Listed win at Caulfield. He also placed in six other stakes-races in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Your Song recently made his mark on Slipper Day when his five year-old daughter MMISS EXFACTOR won in the Group 3 ATC Birthday Card Quality. She now boasts the overall record of five wins and seven placings from 18 starts with prizemoney topping $322,000. Not bad for a $70,000 purchase!

Miss Exfactor is the fourth stakes-winner for Your Song, whose fortunes may well be on an upswing given his biggest ever foal crop are yearlings being sold this year.


The dam of this colt, SARTHEMARE, is a stakes-winning daughter of STREET CRY (IRE). She won the Listed Canberra Black Opal Stakes at her third race start in her two-year-old season, before being competitive in Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes and Group 2 Magic Night Stakes – two lead ups to the Golden Slipper. At her final start in her two-year-old season she placed third in the Inglis 2yo Classic at Randwick.

After a brief three-year-old season which yielded a city placing in Adelaide and three unsuccessful runs at Group 3 and Listed level, she returned at four to win a Brisbane metro race over 1200m. But as a broodmare, she has been more impressive, producing four winners already including SESAR and DOUBT DEFYING.

SESAR won the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial at the Gold Coast in his two-year-old season, beating BOOMSARA and LEAN MEAN MACHINE. His performances in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce (2.6 lengths behind Lean Mean Machine and Zousain) and the Group 1 JJ Atkins (2 lengths behind The Autumn Sun), were full of merit. In his three-year-old season he impressively won the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes in Sydney.

Sarthemare has also produced the Listed Sale Cup winner DOUBT DEFYING, so she is certainly proving a success in the breeding barn.
