A MASSIVE performance in defeat coupled with an almost perfect season will see Patrickthepiranha’s younger sibling attract plenty of attention during Sunday’s Australian Pacing Gold Sale in Perth.

Winner of his first seven starts for the term, Patrickthepiranha finished third at Gloucester Park yesterday in what was an impressive run after dragging a flat tyre.

By highly-successful sire Four Starzzz Shark, Patrickthepiranha is from Thats The Spirit which boasts a perfect record from four starters.

Thats The Spirit’s latest offering is a colt by Rock N Roll Heaven, which is set to enter the ring as Lot 620.

The family includes Il Vicolo, Gotta Go Cullen, Stunin Cullen, Chilli Palmer, Veste, Jinni’s Fantasy, Fake Spirit and Niketia.

Also an APG graduate, Patrickthepiranha is being primed for next week’s Sales Series Final by trainer Colin Brown, who played a role in naming the gelding.

“The boys were at the stable one morning talking about Lennytheshark,” Brown explained.

“Lenny, which is also by Four Starzzz Shark, had just run an enormous race the night before and they were crowing about him.

“This bloke’s stable name at the breeder’s place was Patrick and as a throwaway line I said ‘don’t worry about Lennytheshark we’ve got Patrickthepiranha’.

“The boys loved it and went with it. So I guess in some way he is named after Lenny!””
