PRESS STATEMENT (AUS)(Hinchinbrook-Kaaptive Empress, by Kaaptive Edition)
Vinery Stud, NSW. Fee: $13,750 Live Foal Terms

Press Statement Overview

Press Statement was the only colt of his generation to win a Group 1 at two and three and he’s on track for a Group 1 stud career.

Chris Waller trained Press Statement to complete the J J Atkins Stakes – Caulfield Guineas double and among their 2yo winners this season has been Sydney colt Spokesman who doubled up at Canterbury and Warwick Farm.

“Press Statement didn’t start racing until April of his juvenile season and he finished that first season as an undefeated Group 1 winner,” Vinery General Manager Peter Orton said.  “We are now starting to see some talented stock of his following the same pattern and we expect them to really hit their straps when they turn three.”

Ciaron Maher & David Eustace train his first-crop winners Incredulous Dream, Major Murphy and Equation while there are a couple of promising fillies in Sydney with Waller (Giovanna Run) and John O’Shea (Newsreader).

Incredulous Dream was the top-priced yearling from Press Statement’s first-crop when making $340,000 to Brad Spicer at the 2019 Gold Coast Magic Millions.  “She reminded me so much of Commanding Jewel that we had to have her,” Spicer explained following a debut win at Bendigo in February.  “She should develop into a serious 3yo filly next season.”

Spicer had syndicated Commanding Jewel after buying her from Vinery Stud at the 2011 Gold Coast Yearling Sale and she won a Thousand Guineas Gr.1 at Caulfield. He won a bidding duel with Sheikh Hamdan’s bloodstock adviser Angus Gold to buy Incredulous Dream on the Gold Coast. 

“She was high-priority but I was worried when Angus was on her, too,” Spicer admitted.  “We will give her every chance to come good for the classics.” 

Vinery Stud stands Press Statement for a ‘Payment on Live Foal’ service fee of $13,750 (inc GST).

    Impressive with his dominant victory over 1400m last time out at Sandown where he defeated Prix Du Turn (Turn Me Loose), with that runner up tackling the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas next time out, the Anthony and Sam Freedman-trained 3YO Extreme Flight (Extreme Choice-Abscond, by Galileo) looks more than capable of running a big race in Saturday's Listed Gothic Stakes at Caulfield. In the ten-horse field, the Damien Thornton-ridden colt is one of four last start winners and from the outside gate in 10, the back-to-back winner is likely to settle worse than midfield. Dropping back in class form his sixth, beaten less than 2-lengths in the Gr2 Bill Stutt Stakes, the Archie Alexander-trained Prince Alexander (Animal Kingdom-Alexandra Rose, by Caesour) looks capable of running a better race away from the tight turning Moonee Valley. With form around Daily Bugle (Press Statement-Hold Me Closer, by Danehill Dancer) and Sandy Prince (Pride of Dubai-Sandy Desert, by Line in the Sand) who finished third and fourth respectively in the Stutt Stakes, it looks an even race on paper.

  • Waller's Reginald Allen Quintet Formidable

    Thu, 14 Oct 2021

    Champion trainer Chris Waller has accepted with five fillies for Saturday's Listed Reginald Allen Quality at Royal Randwick, with last start winner Fan Girl (Sebring-Little Surfer Girl, by Encosta de Lago) who destroyed her opposition at Goulburn when winning by 5-lengths, the current race favourite. The question remains if that is the right form line leading into a stakes race, given stablemate Hoover Lucy (No Nay Never-Chelsea, by Dylan Thomas) dominated over 1400m at Warwick Farm and looks a leading chance. Another of the stable runners Roots (Press Statement-Arctic Success, by Big Brown) also won at Goulburn last start. An interesting runner is the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained Decent Raine (Dissident-Royal Raine, by Thorn Park) who comes up from Melbourne off the back of a third last time out at Gr3 level at Moonee Valley, while another coming up from Melbourne is the James Cummings-trained Picarones (Shooting to Win-Anise, by General Nediym). She has finished fourth at her last two starts, both at Listed company.

  • Stan Fox Stakes Suitable for Cotehele

    Thu, 7 Oct 2021

    While a last start victory at Goulburn might not, on paper, read as a great lead in run for Saturday's Gr3 Stan Fox Stakes at Randwick, one would not want to question Champion trainer John O'Shea on the placement of his colt Cotohele (Tavistock-Bequests, by Stravinsky) who is a winner of two of his four starts, by three plus length margins each time. Jockey Hugh Bowman, fresh from Gr1 success aboard Montefilia, is yet to ride the colt on race day with the pair set to jump from barrier five in the nine-horse field. With the top two in the betting, Captivant (Capitalist-Speedboat, by Commands) and Coastwatch (Fastnet Rock-Bullion Mansion, by Encosta de Lago), both having also accepted for the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas in Melbourne on the same day, the market could change slightly and see the Godolphin colt Brigantine (Astern-Lobola, by Anabaa) assume favouritism off the back of his last start second behind Lightsaber (Zoustar) in the Gr3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude. No matter what the result, there is no doubt that the winner should be followed, with previous success stories including Peltzer (So You Think), Press Statement (Hinchinbrook), Impending (Lonhro) and Shooting To Win (Northern Meteor) in recent years.

  • Magicool's Sibling Out To Seek Fortune

    Tue, 31 Aug 2021

    Fortune Hunter (Capitalist-Perfect Truth, by Galileo) will have his first start today in the Hawkesbury TAB Maiden Plate over 1000m for trainers Team Hawkes. The 3YO colt is a half-brother to Group 1 winner Magicool (Fastnet Rock), and stakes-placed winners Perfect Dare (Fastnet Rock) and Romantic Journey (More Than Ready). His dam, Perfect Truth, won the Listed Cheshire Oaks. Fortune Hunter was a $600,000 graduate of the Element Hill draft at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. Capitalist was the leading sire of 2YO winners with his first crop last season, including Group 1 winner Captivant. Also on debut in the same race is Sebring's Rose (Sebring-Single Rose, by Irgun) whose dam was a Listed winner, as well as No Statement (Press Statement-Berning Affair, by Bernadini), and Nay to Remember (No Nay Never-A Day to Remember, by Real Saga).

  • Vinery Stud Releases 2021 Virtual Sire Parade

    Mon, 30 Aug 2021

    Presenting what is widely regarded as its most exciting stallion line-up ever, Vinery Stud has premiered its 2021 virtual sire parade. While its multiple champion shuttle stallion More Than Ready (Southern Halo) no longer calls the Hunter Valley home during the Australian spring, Vinery boasts an imposing group of horses that are in major demand for the new season starting next Wednesday. Augmenting redoubtable sire All Too Hard (already Top 5 for the 2021-22 Black Type Stallion Premiership) and his own sire Casino Prince (Flying Spur), are young guns Headwater (Exceed and Excel), Press Statement (Hinchinbrook) and Star Turn (Star Witness) whose early progeny have put them well and truly on the map. Having launched hugely popular Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes winner Exceedance (Exceed and Excel) last year, Vinery continued to up the ante by snaring stunningly-pedigreed dual Group 1-winning 3YO Ole Kirk (Written Tycoon) for his debut season in 2021. Among the most progressive stud farms in Australia, Vinery’s management has integrated its full complement of stallions into the Australian Black Type Premiership – see here.

  • Gun Hinchinbrook Son in the Spotlight

    Fri, 6 Aug 2021

    In the same season as his champion sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill) finished – incredibly – runner-up on both the Australian and New Zealand Black Type Sire Premierships, ill-fated stallion Hinchinbrook’s final crop of 2YOs produced four individual stakes horses in 2020-21. With his dual Gr1-winning miler son Press Statement doing a sterling job at stud to date at Vinery Stud, it’s now the turn of one of Hinchinbrook’s most precocious juvenile sons to make his own mark. That exciting journey for Unite and Conquer (Hinchinbrook-Maglissa, by Magnus) has started with the birth of his first foal, a filly out of stakes-performed 2YO Shamurt (Murtajill). A prodigiously muscled and precocious 2YO who was favoured to win the Magic Millions 2YO Classic after effortlessly winning his first two races, the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stks at Flemington and RL Magic Millions Wyong Classic, before Christmas, Unite and Conquer is out of a daughter of Danglissa, winner of the Gr1 Flight Stakes and runner-up in the Gr1 Thousand Guineas. With excellent breeder support at Kingstar Farm in his debut season, Unite and Conquer’s immediate family is going from strength to strength. From the same damline as bullet-like juvenile Profiteer (Capitalist), his 3YO half-brother So United (So You Think) won in Sydney in 2020-21, whilst his 2YO half-brother Mission Value (Capitalist) was stakes-placed in 2020-21 on debut (in his only start) for trainer Mark Newnham. Unite and Conquer stands his second season at Kingstar Farm for $6,600 inc GST.

  • Hunter Studs Support Queen of The Valley

    Wed, 4 Aug 2021

    Owners of fillies or mares that race in next week’s Queen Of The Valley Matchmaker (Friday 13 August) will have access to an exciting list of stallions in the Hunter Valley, reports racingnsw.com.au. Widden, Vinery and Kingstar Farm have all offered nominations to some of their standing stallions for 2021 with the first three placegetters in the race able to access the list on a ‘first past the post’ allocation. “This concept has been available for several years at Muswellbrook Race Club and has always proven to be very popular,” said Muswellbrook Race Club's CEO, Duane Dowell. “The winning connections will get the first choice, then second place the next pick and so on.” Dowell noted, “The small change this year is that Kingstar Farm has offered multiple choices for their allocation so there is an even greater selection. The stallions on offer include Unite And Conquer, Bull Point or Lord Of The Sky (Kingstar), Press Statement (Vinery) and Supido (Widden). The feature race is a Benchmark 66 Handicap over 1280m for fillies and mares. Last year’s winner was the Rod Northam-trained Modernity (Foxwedge-Palia, by Last Tycoon). The raceday also marks the last day at Muswellbrook for outgoing CEO Duane Dowell who starts at Newcastle Jockey Club on 16 August.

  • Performance and Maturity Converge for Stable

    Tue, 15 Jun 2021

    It's stating the obvious to give a cursory tick to the Gr1 JJ Atkins (1600m) for being the final Group 1 of the juvenile race of the racing season, but there's more to the important Queensland 2YO race than just that as it's a springboard to further riches. History shows that among the leading 2YOs and 3YOs of each generation there are a number of distinct groups that include but are not restricted to: the jack rabbit-like precocious juveniles that run like scalded cats over short trips and whose best days are sometimes behind them after the autumn; the later maturing 2YOs who show early glimpses of their talent before finishing off the season with a flourish from 1400-1600m; the new season 3YOs who, with or without a start at two, emerge from winter sun on their backs to be serious Guineas prospects, and then the 3YOs who show up on the periphery of the big miles before going on to dominate at 2000m-plus in the late spring and into the New Year. Frankel's Converge (ex Shamardal mare Conversely) definitely fits into the second group after his rousing triumph in the JJ Atkins, but with his pedigree and Waterhouse-Bott polish he could quite easily drop back to the 1400m of the Gr1 Golden Rose before rolling all the way through the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and beyond to the Gr1 Victoria Derby. Of course, like Anamoe (who showed his hand even earlier in the season), Converge could also prove a handful in the Cox Plate. Whatever path he takes, with recent winners and place-getters that include Rothfire (Rothesay), The Autumn Sun (Redoute's Choice), Press Statement (Hinchinbrook), Sizzling (Snitzel), Zousain (Zoustar), Brazen Beau (I Am Invincible) and Zoustar (Northern Meteor), Converge is obviously the latest success story of a JJ Atkins that well and truly deserves its Group 1 tag.

  • Cape Breton Poised to Make a Statement

    Mon, 7 Jun 2021

    It wasn’t that long ago that premier trainer Chris Waller plucked a late autumn-winning 2YO colt called Press Statement (Hinchinbrrok) and tossed him into the cauldron of Brisbane’s Gr1 JJ Atkins Stakes (1600m). Not only did the future successful young Vinery Stud stallion claim the last elite 2YO feature of the season, he doubled down by taking the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas as a 3YO and also placed in both the Gr1 Randwick Guineas and Gr1 All Aged Stakes in the same season. Now there’s a chance that Waller could do the same with Cape Breton (Vancouver-Exclusive Lass, by Niconni). After drifting like a log on a running tide from even money to $3.80 on Saturday in the face of huge support for subsequently unplaced Royalzel, Cape Breton sat third behind tearaway speed before pouncing early in the straight and hanging tough for a deserved win. Waller stable 2IC Charlie Duckworth acknowledged, “The JJ Atkins is only seven days away but Press Statement did pretty much the exact same thing and whether we do that or not with Cape Breton I’m not quite sure… Chris will discuss it with the owners early in the week but it was good to see Cape Breton step up to Saturday grade and get the job done.” According to punters.com.au, Duckworth conceded, “It’s a lot to ask of the horse to back up next week but he has the right attitude to get away with it. Cape Breton is very relaxed, very unfazed – every day is like a holiday for him. He is a fantastic doer and does everything you ask of him.’’ A $600,000 purchase from Glenn Burrows’ Willow Park Stud at the 2020 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, the son of Vancouver (Medaglia d’Oro) is raced by an ownership group headed by Coolmore Stud.

  • History Underpins Vinery Sire Track Record

    Tue, 1 Jun 2021

    Launching new stallions is never easy for any stud farm, however some are habitually successful at it. Among those that have stood the test of time is Vinery Stud whose record is admirable. Off the back of world champion shuttle phenomenon More Than Ready (Southern Halo) and entrenched leading stallion All Too Hard (Casino Prince), Vinery debuted three new horses in two years (2016 and 2017). The results have been exceptional. All of Headwater (Exceed and Excel), Press Statement (Hinchinbrook) and Star Turn (Star Witness) have started in style. With their eldest just 3YOs, between them Headwater and Press Statement already have 10 individual stakes-performers and were both Top 8 Freshman Sires. Ditto, Star Turn (12), who sits second to only Capitalist (15) on the current season’s star-studded First Crop Sire table of winners. Last year’s launch stallion, sensational Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes hero Exceedance (Exceed and Excel), debuted to critical acclaim and consequently served a deserved book of elite mares. And, so to 2021 where Vinery’s cracking recruit Ole Kirk (Written Tycoon) has captured a huge amount of attention. The stunningly-bred debutant who recorded stallion-making Group 1 victories as a 3YO in both Sydney and Melbourne is a red hot prospect. As with the afore-mentioned young Vinery cohort, there is a sense of déjà vu; after-all, history repeats.

  • Full Press Chasing Three in Succession Today

    Tue, 25 May 2021

    Promising 3YO gelding Full Press (Press Statement-Max it Out, by Northern Meteor) will be chasing three wins in succession in race six at Armidale today, reports racingnsw.com.au. Trainer Brett Dodson is keen to see the gelding at the track where he is two from two. "I wanted to give him a little break after his last win as I would like to nominate him for Grafton Guineas in July," Dodson said. "He has been a slow maturing horse who has started to grow into himself and find his legs when he gallops. I told the owners they would have to be patient with the horse as it would take time for him to produce his best. I gave him a jump out last week and he went well so I can't see any reason why he won run well again." Dodson noted, "He is up in grade with 60 kilograms and against some horses that have won more races. It's the most weight he has carried, but he is a big gangly horse and I think he will be alright." Full Press first raced in July 2020 as a 2YO where he ran third on debut, and then had six further starts for only one second placing. He found form in his last two starts, winning both, and now has a record of two wins from nine starts. Full Press was a $40,000 purchase from the New Zealand Bloodstock 2YO Sale from the draft of Kiltannon Stables.

  • Lees Chasing Scone Challenge Double

    Fri, 14 May 2021

    Twelve months back, the Kris Lees-trained The Bopper (Nicconi-Chicago, by Artie Schiller) set tongues wagging when he started a short-priced favourite and demoralised his opponents, scoring by almost 4-lengths in the Inglis Scone 2YO Challenge (1100m), and this year the Newcastle-based trainer will start I Want One (Super One-I Want You, by Howbaddouwantit) and Miss Statement (Press Statement-Arziki, by Tale Of The Cat), both for Australian Bloodstock, in an attempt to record back to back wins. The unraced I Want One, currently the race favourite, will have the services of Brenton Avdulla and will jump from the inside barrier which is always a great advantage for unraced juveniles. Successful by just over 2-lengths in a May 5 barrier trial over 800m, the gelding was a $26,000 purchase from the draft of Davali Thoroughbreds at last year's Inglis Scone yearling sale. Also purchased from the sale, Miss Statement cost connections $30,000 with the Vinery Stud graduate being out of a half-sister to Group 3 winner November Flight, who is the dam of Gr1 All Aged Stakes winner and Aquis stallion Pierata (Pierro) and the Gr3-winning Gr1-placed Ashokan (More Than Ready).

  • Vinery Stud Releases 2021 Roster and Fees

    Thu, 22 Apr 2021

    Fresh from a record-breaking Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, Vinery Stud has raised the bar again with a list of stallions tailor-made for broodmare owners at every level. In addition to high profile debutant Ole Kirk (see above item), explosively fast Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes-winning sprinter Exceedance (Exceed and Excel-Bonnie Mac, by Thorn Park), who covered 142 mares in his initial book in 2020, will be fully subscribed again this year where he heads the balance of Vinery’s seven-strong stallion line-up. The powerful line-up includes star First Season Sire Star Turn (Star Witness-Golden Delicious, by Made of Gold), Australian Top 10 stallion All Too Hard (Casino Prince-Helsinge, by Desert Sun), who remains one of the best-value stallions in the Hunter Valley, and Headwater (Exceed and Excel-River Dove, by Hurricane Sky) who emerged from Randwick's The Championships as Australia’s leading Second Season Sire to back up his First Season Sire championship. Then there are Gr1-winning 2YO/3YO Press Statement (Hinchinbrook-Kaaptive Empress, by Kaaptive Edition) whose recent local and overseas feature and city winners has turned into a wave of success, and the redoubtable Casino Prince (Flying Spur-Lady Capel, by Last Tycoon); his incredible 71% strike rate saw him serve almost 100 mares in 2020 following a black-type revival led by Baccarat Baby, Sweet Deal, cult hero The Candy Man and Bandersnatch. There is far more to each of Vinery’s seven stallions – CLICK HERE for a full overview. Meanwhile, here is the full alphabetical 2021 line-up and their respective GST-inclusive fees.

  • Winning Neasham Equation Makes a Statement

    Wed, 10 Mar 2021

    It was never a question of if, but rather when both Annabel Neasham and Vinery Stud’s Press Statement (Hinchinbrook) were going to record their first stakes-winners. Neasham, who now has a significant number of high-class horses in work for Aquis, went very close on Saturday to not just nailing her maiden stakes victory but also nabbing a Group 1 when ultra-talented Savabeel colt Mo’Unga finished a fast-closing runner-up in the Gr1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) in Sydney. Fast forward two days to Monday, and Neasham had her first black type triumph, courtesy of high quality 3YO colt Equation (Press Statement-Purcentage, by Onemorenomore) in the Listed Canberra Guineas (1600m). A $110,000 weanling purchase by Aquis at the 2018 Magic Millions National Sale, Equation – now boasting 4 wins from 5 starts – is from dual 2YO and 3YO Gr1 winner Press Statement’s first crop and becomes his first stakes-winner among a glut of city winners. Press Statement is also sire of Group 3 and Listed-placed Baby Wong who finished in the first half of the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic field in January.

  • Purton Claws Back Huge Hong Kong Deficit

    Fri, 5 Mar 2021

    The deficit remains confronting, but Zac Purton breathed life into his flickering hopes of a successful jockeys’ championship defence with a stunning quintet at Happy Valley on Wednesday. Capitalising on runaway leader Joao Moreira’s suspension, Purton posted his first five-timer for the 2020/21 season, cutting Moreira’s seemingly impregnable margin to 25 after triumphing on Wood On Fire (Per Incanto), Hurry Hurry Gain (Press Statement), Ever Force (Toronado) and the John Size-pair of Wealthy Delight (Lord Kanaloa) and Wind N Grass (Lawman). It is the eighth time Purton has registered five wins at a Hong Kong meeting and the first time he has accomplished the feat since May last year. Chasing his fifth jockeys’ title, the Australian rider boosted his tally to 70 – still well adrift of Moreira (95), who is serving a two-meeting suspension for careless riding, with 37 meetings left in the season. Albeit just in theory, Purton only needs to ride one winner more than Moreira per meeting on average to draw equal with 12 meetings to go; it's Everest-like but not impossible.

  • Finding Top Class 2YOs a Needle in a Haystack

    Wed, 3 Mar 2021

    At face value, finding an elite black-type class juvenile prospect at the yearling sales should be relatively simple – head to the proven go-to stallions renowned for precocity, for example Snitzel, I Am Invincible, Written Tycoon, Fastnet Rock, Not A Single Doubt, Zoustar, Exceed and Excel, Redoute’s Choice, Street Boss, Sebring, Spirit of Boom, More Than Ready, Starspangled Banner, Siyouni, Better Than Ready etc. But wait, there’s more: young guns like Brazen Beau, Capitalist, Press Statement, Shalaa, Star Turn, Lord Kanaloa, Frosted, Rich Enuff, Sooboog, Pride of Dubai, Vancouver, Swear, Headwater, Under The Louvre, Flying Artie and Extreme Choice are also putting their hands up. They’re soon to be followed by hot freshman yearling sire prospects that include Churchill, Hellbent, Invader, Pariah, Menari, Merchant Navy, National Defense, Overshare and Russian Revolution. If further convincing is required as to just how challenging it remains to unearth a star juvenile, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Now into the eighth month of the current racing season, the 2YO Black Type Premiership (BTP) for 2020-21 reveals that of the Top 13-rated 2YOs by points earned from stakes races, only Darley’s Street Boss (Street Cry) is represented more than once – see below. Note: Capitalist’s gun 2YO Profiteering, current Golden Slipper favourite, is absent from the sample as the $2 million Inglis Millennium – the scene of his scorching victory – is currently, like the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, only afforded Restricted Listed status by the Australian Black Type Committee.
