The progeny of Derby winner Renaissance Man, a newcomer to the Yirribee Pacing Stud sire roster, are firing on all four cylinders recently.

Star three-year-old filly Fifty Five Reborn sat without cover before defeating a strong field at Gloucester Park last Friday (July 31), rating 1:57.3 over 2130 metres with the last 800 in 57.2. It was her eighth lifetime success and took her career earnings beyond the $90,000 mark.

Renaissance Man was also represented by a ‘new’ two-year-old winner in Artful Jack (1:59.2, Newcastle), while the three-year-old Medieval Man won for the fourth time this season at Pinjarra.

Renaissance Man has now sired 19 individual winners from 31 starters and boasts an average of $17,200 per starter!

Whatta Conk, a gelding by Million Dollar Cam, put the exclamation mark on another busy week for his sire when he won in a career-best 1:53.5 at the Menangle midweek meeting. It was his sixth lifetime success.

Plumpton Road (1:59.6, Wagga), Neville Shannon (1:58.6, Tamworth), Getaloadathisgirl (Redcliffe) and at the American pacer Eastend Eddie (1:56.8) were other recent winners sired by Million Dollar Cam.

Warrawee Needy, Australia’s second leading first season sire in 2019/20, was represented by the smart Wagga two-year-old winner Menames Needy (1:58.7) and a pair of Canadian three-year-old winners in Frownie’s Miracle (1:57) and Wine Tyme (1:59.4).

Meanwhile, Tintin In America, the sire of reigning USA Horse of the Year and world champion racemare Shartin, led in the ‘new’ Globe Derby Park three-year-old winner Tinhorn (1:59.9) and the Saratoga, New York victor Kiwi Tintin NZ (1:56.4).

To complete a big week for Yirribee Pacing Stud, the champion Lombo Pocket Watch provided the third leg of a study treble at Wagga with The Clock Winder (1:59.7).
