Rewarding week for Goodwood
17 May 2018

Goodwood Stud has enjoyed success on both sides of the Tasman this week.

Graduates McCartney and Hirtshals were successful on Wednesday both home and away.

The former broke her maiden at Ruakaka with a performance expected by co-trainer Graeme Rogerson.

“She has taken a little while to mature, but I think she’s very good,” he said. “All she’s needed was a good track.”

By Alamosa, she is a half-sister to the dual Group Two winner and Group One performer Serena Miss.

McCartney was purchased out of Goodwood’s 2016 Premier Sale draft to Karaka for $55,000.

The three year old will go to auction at the Gold Coast later this month.

Hirtshals won for the fourth time in her 13-start career with her latest victory at Caloundra.

She is trained by Brian Smith at Eagle Farm for long-time Goodwood supporters Cam and Chas Stewart.

By Pins, Hirtshals is out of the Kinjite mare Burnzees Magic, who won six times.

Her best representative to date has been Hirtshals’ stakes-winning brother Barbaric.
