WAY WEST (AUS)

Danehill (USA) - Prospect Fever (USA)

by Mr. Prospector (USA)

As underrated a sire as there is in the land right now, Way West quietly gets on with his business at Summerhill with little fanfare. His quiet demeanour belies a prince’s pedigree, and a record of performance which hinted at a destructive talent betrayed by the sort of injury only racehorses can inflict upon themselves.

Carrying the looks of a champion show horse, Way West is statuesque, but he’s a little fellow. Attracting the patronage of local breeders has not been easy, yet from two small crops at the races to date, he has two Group One performing fillies, the Highveld Juvenile Champion, Waywest Goddess, and Extra Zero. The latter who followed an excellent third to the much-heralded Princess Victoria in the Golden Slipper (Gr1), with an astounding runner-up performance against the colts in the R2million Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup.

Now we find our man sitting in 5th place on the National Sires’ Log, measured by average earnings per runner : the stats tell us he’s in great company, while he has several of the nation’s most illustrious stallions behind him.
