Colour: Bay

Dam: Stars are Out

Age: 2

Foaled: Aug 09, 2019

Owners: Wes Belt, Georgia Belt, Matthew Bracchi, Maree Hyland , C F Hyland Racing P/L, Chris Manakis, Justin O'Gorman, Michael Poes, Paul Thompson

Trainer: Chris Hyland

From the second crop of Sooboog, this colt is a daughter of the Fastnet Rock mare Stars Are Out, who is a daughter of Stakes winning Woodman mare Moon Is Up.

He is a strong colt with great movement and very much in the mould of his sire.

Sooboog has had an exceptional past 12 months with his first yearlings in the sales ring averaging 7X times his service fee, entering all the major stables in the Country.

His highest priced filly was the half-sister to Oohood selling for $250,000 to Aquis Farm, while $150,000 was paid for a colt from Deema.

With significant numbers in his first three seasons at stud with 152 rising 2yo’s working their way to the track in October. This to be followed by 178 the following year, and over 100 in his third season, with already a significant book built for the upcoming 2020 season Sooboog certainly has the numbers and quality to kick.
