ARLINGTON (AUS)(Red Ransom-Savannah Success, by Success Express)
Tamalee Farm, NSW. Fee: $5,500

Arlington Overview

Arlington, a Gr1 performed half-brother to a Cox Plate winning Champion Sire, is up to 29 individual winners of 60 races on the board from his first small crops, including multiple winners Gordon's Leap, The Lion (both Highway Handicap winners), Fort Myer, Fast Arli, Arlington's Pick, Little Arli, Hurricane Harbour, Magic Arli, Cut The Mustard and Arlington Heights. With multiple winners continuing to roll in, Arlington’s pedigree and race record suggest his progeny are going to make exceptional maturing horses over journeys at a mile and beyond where they could be genuine Cups prospects.

Arlington was a $1.55 million yearling thanks to his exemplary pedigree and stunning looks. His half-brother, Savabeel, a multiple champion sire, won a Cox Plate as a 3YO, and his dam, Savannah Success, was a dual Gr1 winning Oaks filly. His own sire, Red Ransom, is one of our best in recent times. Arlington’s already impressive pedigree has continued to have significant upgrades via the success of Black Heart Bart (Blackfriars) whose five individual Gr1 wins have been underpinned by an equal number of Gr1 placings. Black Heart Bart is a son of Savannah Success’s city winning half-sister Sister Theresa (At Talaq). The success of Black Heart Bart, and Savabeel’s stud career highlight how well this family crosses with sons of Danehill.

Arlington first raced as an October 2YO, and was stakes-placed at just his second start. As a 3YO, Arlington ran third in the Gr1 Randwick Guineas to Horse of the Year Weekend Hussler, and as an older horse, Arlington picked up group placings in the Gr2 Japan-New Zealand International Trophy and Gr3 Tauranga Stakes (behind multiple Gr1 winner Sir Slick). He also has three Listed placings to his credit (two of those in his 2YO season). Arlington proved on the track that he was tough, and talented, having 54 starts over six seasons for five wins.

Breeders who can’t afford Savabeel’s much deserved lofty fee can access Arlington for a fraction of the price. This is real value, right here.

  • Flurry Of Wins For Arlington

    Tue, 11 Sep 2018

    Improving stallion prospect Arlington, who only weeks ago had his progeny reach 50 wins, has done what any decent batsman would after reaching his half century. Since 26 August, progeny of Arlington (a Gr1-performed half-brother to Cox Plate winner and multiple champion sire Savabeel) have finished 1st or 2nd in 12 races, with 7 of those being the major prize. Among those is 5-time winner Another Weapon, one of 17 Arlington runners to have won more than once from his 29 individual winners of 59 races. Arlington, whose past four TAB Highway Handicap runners have scored three times in Sydney, is standing the 2018 season at Tamalee Farm, an hour north of Scone, for $5,500.

  • Sistercharlie Wins Gr1 Beverly D

    Mon, 13 Aug 2018

    At Arlington racecourse in the US, Bowness Stud's Gr1-winning stallion Myboycharlie (Danetime-Dulceata, by Rousillon) celebrated an elite race success when 4YO Irish-bred mare Sistercharlie (Myboycharlie-Starlet's Sister, by Galileo) held off a late challenge from her stable-mate Fourstar Crook to score by 0.5 length in the US$600,000 Gr1 Beverly D Stakes (9.5 furlongs) for fillies & mares. Long-shot Thais finished in third. This was the third Group 1 victory for Sistercharlie who advanced her record to 6 wins (including the Group 1 Diana Stakes & Gr1 Jenny Wiley Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr1 Prix de Diane & Gr1 Belmont Oaks) from 10 starts for more than US$1.4 million in earnings. "She's very consistent," trainer Chad Brown told Blood Horse. "She's the type of mare any trainer would love to have."

  • Arlington Poised To Raise His Bat For Half Ton

    Fri, 10 Aug 2018

    Tamalee Farm's resident stallion Arlington (Red Ransom-Savannah Success, by Success Express) is on the cusp of a milestone at Scone today (originally programmed for Tamworth) where he is represented by seven runners. The Gr1-placed million dollar yearling half-brother to Cox Plate winner and multiple champion sire Savabeel only needs one more race win to take his tally to 50. Those 49 victories have been shared by 24 individual winners, with metropolitan performers The Lion and Hurricane Harbour each bagging a quartet. Arlington's 2018 fee is $5,500.

  • North Atlantic Clash In Gr1 Beverly D

    Fri, 10 Aug 2018

    4YO Myboycharlie mare Sistercharlie and is set to face-off against Aidan O'Brien-trained 3YO filly Athena in the US$600,000 Gr1 Beverly D. Stakes at Arlington tomorrow, reports bloodhorse.com. With both coming off Gr1 turf victories in New York at their latest tests, Sistercharlie by a decisive 2.5-lengths in the Jenny Wiley Stakes at Keeneland and Athena clearly in the Belmont Oaks on her US debut, the scene has been set for a mouthwatering clash. Trained by Chad Brown, who has 4 entered for the Beverly D, Sistercharlie appears to have re-emerged in even more ominous form than that which took her to runner-up positions in both the Gr1 French and Belmont Oaks' last season. From Galileo mare Starlet's Sister, Sistercharlie comes from an outstanding, primarily French stakes-winning family including Leo's Starlet and Anabas's Creation, while Athena is by 4-time Gr1 winning sire Camelot from outstanding producer Cherry Hinton who counts Gr1 Irish Oaks winner Bracelet amongst her progeny.

  • Arlington Sale Coincides With Strong Progeny Form

    Tue, 1 May 2018

    With the potential pending sale of champion sire Savabeel's Gr1-performed half-brother Arlington at Tamalee Farm next Sunday, the promising sire of future potential Cups prospects is currently enjoying strong success with his progeny including three winners in the last week of April. The Red Ransom stallion, whose oldest are 4YO staying prospects, already boasts 20 individual winners (12 of them with between 2 - 4 wins) of almost $1 million. His best runner might even be a city-class maiden, with the Barry Lockwood-trained Toowoomba Guineas runner-up Naked already the earner of $40,000 from 6 placings and entered for the Gr3 Grand Prix Stakes (2200m) during Brisbane’s Winter Carnival. Arlington, along with a number of weanlings, yearlings and mares in-foal to him, will be auctioned at Tamalee Farm in Tamworth on Sunday 6 May from 11am. Inspections will be held on Saturday 5 May from 9am to 3pm. Sunday's sale will include the local school providing a barbecue, food and drinks.

  • Highland Reel to Stand at Swettenham Stud

    Tue, 17 Apr 2018

    In a tremendous boost to Australia's stallion ranks, Swettenham Stud has announced that globetrotting star Highland Reel (Galileo-Hveger, by Danehill) will stand in Victoria this spring. Trained by Aidan O'Brien, the Irish-bred Highland Reel was last seen scoring a brilliant win in the Gr1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m) at Sha Tin in December. In what was the swansong of his remarkable career before retiring to stud, Highland Reel advanced his record to 10 wins from 27 starts for $13,951,220 in earnings. Among those wins were 7 at Group 1 level, namely the Hong Kong Vase, Prince of Wales's Stakes, Breeders' Cup Turf, Coronation Cup, King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Hong Kong Vase, and Arlington Secretariat Stakes. He also boasts placings in world-class events such as the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe & Cox Plate. By the legendary Galileo, Highland Reel is out of the Gr1-placed Australian mare Hveger (Danehill), a full-sister to multiple Gr1 winner Elvstroem and a half-sister to fellow multiple Gr1 scorer Haradasun from Australian Oaks heroine Circles Of Gold. This is also the family of brilliant young sire Starspangledbanner and Golden Slipper winner Polar Success. "Swettenham Stud is extremely excited to have secured Highland Reel from Coolmore Stud for stallion duties in the southern hemisphere," Swettenham Stud principal Adam Sangster said. "And while he might be standing at our Nagambie base, Highland Reel's appeal is truly global." Sangster added: "With his tremendous race record and what is clearly a stallion's pedigree, I'm highly confident he will attract broodmare owners from all states...particularly at such a competitive fee." Highland Reel will join the Swettenham roster at an introductory fee of $15,000 plus GST.
