GREAT BRITAIN OFF THE MARK
Highlands Farm’s young stallion, Great Britain, has gotten off the mark as a stallion in Australia. From a small crop first crop, Great Britain’s Tacash won an 1000m dash at the second time of asking.
A stakes winner in Dubai, Great Britain won up to 1400 metres, and earned a Timeform Rating of 118. His biggest victory came in the Al Quoz Sprint – a race famously captured twice by champion sprinter, J J the Jet Plane.
Great Britain is a son of the Gr1 July Cup winner and world leading sire Green Desert (Danzig). The latter has made a tremendous impact at stud through such outstanding sire sons as Invincible Spirit, Oasis Dream, Volksraad and Cape Cross.
Great Britain, from the family of successful sires Diktat and Iffraaj, is an own brother to former G1 Lockinge Stakes hero Cape Cross, who has sired such outstanding performers as Ouija Board and Sea The Stars – among over another 70 stakes winners.
Out of the dual G1 winner Park Appeal, Great Britain stands at Highlands for a stud fee of R12,000.
