Denman Repaying Twin Hills Stud

The faith Twin Hills Stud has placed in accomplished sire Denman was rewarded with a stakes double at Caulfield and Randwick on Saturday.

Twin Hills purchased a big share and standing rights to the son of Lonhro this year with the former Darley stallion now into his first season at the Cootamundra stud.

Homebred By Darley at Woodlands Stud, Denman (Lonhro x Pleach) won nine of his 12 starts including the G1 Golden Rose among his six wins in stakes races between 1200m and 1400m.

He has been equally successful since he went to stud in 2010, siring m,ore than 300 winers of almost 800 races including 16 stakes winners.

Those black type winners include Saturday's winners Humma Humma in the Listed Alinghi Stakes at Caulfield and Deprive in the G3 Sydney Stakes at Randwick.

A half brother to the dam of this year's Golden Slipper winner Kiamichi, Denman features other Golden Slipper winners Vain, Marscay and Dark Eclipse in his pedigree.

Humma Humma was bred by Bridsan Bloodstock and is s the second winner from the Bel Esprit mare Humma Mumma, a metropolitan winning half-sister to the stakes-winner Vignette and dam of the multiple winner Strela (Smart Misssile).
