Pindari Express Your Perfect Choice At Stud

BREEDING expert David Brasch explains why Pindari Express promises to be such a big success at stud, the son of Fabregas standing at $2,200.

BACK in days gone by, when greyhound breeders had a go-to recipe for success, it involved putting their bitches to one-turn superstars, the Victorian greats, and those who excelled at Harold Park.

Take a look at the names of stud dog greats from the past and those dogs, those with blistering speed, hold pride of place. Legend Head Honcho is the perfect example.

Yes, the majority of them could also extend that speed to two-turn glory.

But, it was that ability to burn clear of their rivals and sustain it to the line over 500 yards (457m) that so impressed broodbitch owners and stamped those dogs as those able to pass on a new level of extreme pace.

With the retirement of “The Express Train”, Pindari Express, to stud those breeders seeking to put in blinding brilliance into their bloodlines, track record brilliance, combined with Group winning ability and the strength to match those chasing a million dollar pay day, then he is the answer.

Pindari Express (Fabregas-Brook's Doll by Collision) was bred to be the record-breaking Group star he became.

In just 32 race starts for owner-trainer Tracey Scruse, Pindari Express won 18 and was placed 10 times for $138,000 in stakes.

Along the way he ran a Bulli track record, equalled another, and set a Maitland track record.

On the home of speed racing in NSW, he won the Group 2 Bulli Gold Cup and Group 2 Bulli Gold Plate.

He went to Victoria to be placed in the Group 3 Warragul St Leger, and was also a finalist in the 2019 $1 Million Chase.

If anyone has any question about Pindari Express' blinding pace, they only have to look at his record breaking speed.

His winning times included: Bulli 21.93TR, 26.00, Maitland 24.59TR, Goulburn 24.59 and Wentworth Park 29.41.

Yes, Pindari Express was bred to be a star. He came from a litter of 11 named offspring and 10 of them have been winners.

Dam, Brook's Doll, to El Grand Senor, had already produced champion Ando's Mac (28 wins, $687,000) the G1 Melbourne Cup, G1 Vic Peters, G2 Warragul Cup winner and a finalist in 11 Group races.

To Where's Pedro, Brook's Doll is also the dam of Certification (Brett Memorial, 2nd Nat Straight Track, finalist G2 Queensland Derby) etc.

Pindari Express is almost guaranteed stud success.

He will stand at a service of $2000 plus GST.

Being by the fine sire Fabregas, he is bred on the exact same cross as G1 winner and track record breaker No Donuts and the G2 winner, sprint star She's Gifted.

His dam Brook's Doll is yet another of those high producing bitches bred on the Rumble Spirit/Token Prince cross and those in-bred bitches have proved themselves at stud.

But, Brook's Doll also carries a cross of Big Daddy Cool and Little Denver and both of these have numerous avenues, along with Collision and Token Prince, to help Pindari Express become a success.

Bitches with Brett Lee, of course, will be a natural to line up with his half brother Big Daddy Cool.

Collision's influence as damsire of Pindari Express will be HUGE!

He works with so many lines, like Kinloch Brae of course, and Fernando Bale naturally.

Bitches by both those great sires will be a MUST for Pindari Express.

Bitches by Fernando Bale will especially be suited to Pindari Express. That's because “The Express Train” carries Fantasy Fortune in his immediate damline.

She is a sister to Addis Boy who is significantly found as the sire of the second dam of Fernando's champion son Whiskey Riot.

And, anything with Cosmic Rumble up close will also suit Pindari Express to line breed to Collision and Cosmic's mother Spiritual Rumble.

Collision also has a special “nick” with Where's Pedro so daughters of that great sire will also be a MUST for Pindari Express.

This also means bitches with Where's Pedro's litter brothers Hallucinate and Carnage.

Hallucinate, of course, is the damsire of Barcia Bale.

And, bitches by this champion sire are everywhere!

Barcia Bale is the sire of Mystic Riot a half sister to Whiskey Riot. Both carry Addis Boy in their damline.

A special mating too could be to bitches by Magic Sprite and Oaks Road. They both trace along their direct female line to National Dingaan the litter sister to Little Denver the sire of Pindari Express' fourth dam).

This is the proven cross found in multiple Group 1 winner Above All.

Naturally, daughters of El Grand Senor will be ideally suited to Pindari Express. That's because Brook's Doll, dam of “The Express Train”, has produced champion Ando's Mac to a mating to El Grand Senor.

Duplicating Bombastic Shiraz, grandsire of Pindari Express, is starting to work everywhere and this will be another avenue for him at stud.

Daughters of Zambora Brockie and especially his own sire Nitro Burst, could suit Pindari Express.

Any bitch with Sonic Flight (i.e. Bekim Bale daughters) will suit to bring in a link between he and his half brother Larkhill Jo (in Fabregas).

Bitches by strength sires like My Bro Fabio, Djay's Octane, Buck Fever etc will also ideally suit the pace generated by Pindari Express.

The opportunities for him at stud are endless.
