Kolding Running Hot For Ocean Park

Karaka graduate Kolding passed his first black-type test as he recorded a fourth consecutive win in Saturday’s $350,000 Queensland Guineas at Eagle Farm.

Bought for $NZ170,000 by agent Guy Mulcaster at the 2017 NZB Karaka Premier Sale, Kolding went into the Group 2 three-year-old feature with four wins to his name from 10 career starts.

He had won his three previous starts in handicap races in Sydney since being gelded and now boasts prizemoney of $361,150 for his Queensland owner Neville Morgan.

Kolding was bred by Warren Pegg from the maiden Danzero mare Magic Star. She is the dam of seven winners including three-time NZ stakes winner Sampson (Dubai Destination) and the Listed winner Miss Upstart (Snippetson).

Sampson won 11 races including the G2 Awapuni Gold Cup, G3 Trentham Stakes and Listed New Zealand St Leger.

Sampson cost just $NZ20,000 at the 2011 Karaka Festival Sale and has earned more than $450,000. Another half-sibling, a filly by Iffraaj, was bought for $NZ150,000 during Book 1 at Karaka last year.

The trio join G2 winner Make Mine Magic (Canadian Silver) as the only stakes winners under Kolding’s first three dams.

Kolding’s fifth dam is the G1 winner Maltmaid (Malt Denis).

Magic Star’s final foal is a current 2YO filly by Iffraaj. She cost $NZ150,000  at Karaka last year and is in training with Grahame Begg.

Kolding carries the same colours as multiple G1-winning New Zealand-breds Kermadec and Rangirangdoo.

All three have been trained for Neville Morgan by Chris Waller.

Kolding was bred by Warren Pegg in partnership with Wentwood Grange Stud.

Wentwood Grange’s Hawkins family also bred and sold Kermadec four years earlier.

“Warren was actually our very first client when Wentwood Grange first got started,” said stud manager Dean Hawkins.

“A few years ago he decided to stop breeding horses on his own so we started to breed in partnership with him.

“He’s been a wonderful client for a long time and has become a close family friend. It’s fantastic to share this result with him.”

Kolding is the best winner for Waikato Stud’s Cox Plate winner Ocean Park among his 12 stakes performers to date that include four G1 placegetters.

Now with three crops of racing age, Ocean Park has sired 94 winners from 167 runners including 27 in the last two months.

They include Kolding’s stablemate Star Of The Seas, who recorded the sixth win of his 12-start career at Randwick on Saturday after he failed to make the cut for the G1 Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm.

The 4YO Star Of The Seas has recorded four wins and four placings from eight starts this preparation and has never run out of the money in his 13 career starts.

Star Of The Seas who was bred in NZ by Trelawney Stud and was sold after a barrier trial win in New Zealand when prepared by Clayton Chipperfield through bloodstock agent Phil Cataldo to Waller’s Sydney based client Tony Muollo.
