QUEENSLAND BREEDERS HOPEFUL OF DERBY DAY RESULTS

Two year’s ago on Derby Day Highgrove Stud’s Ron Gilbert, the breeder of Wanted eagerly tuned into the oncourse monitors at Flemington to watch the colt win his debut at Rosehill impressively.

This Saturday Gilbert will again be at Flemington, to watch Wanted’s half brother Shrapnel in the Group One Coolmore Stakes.

A win for Shrapnel will be a victory for Gilbert on many fronts. Gilbert is not only the breeder but is also a part owner of Shrapnel. He has a share in the colt’s sire Charge Forward and will offer a colt from Shrapnel and Wanted’s dam Fragmentation at next year’s Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale by Fastnet Rock.
