DERBY TRIIMPH FOR TINTIN IN AMERICA
The Group 3 $31,160 Redcliffe Derby was a triumph for Tintin In America as the sire of the winner Tim’s A Trooper and Teddy Disco (3rd) – rather a notable siring feat.
Tim’s A Trooper, who was bred by Yirribee Pacing Stud, who stand his sire, posted his seventh success and his third at Group level. He has now earned $219,843.
Tintin In America, who also sired the brilliant 1:55 Auckland winner Jack Tar, is second on the three-year-old sire’s list for average earnings per starter, behind only Bettor’s Delight.
The North America Cup hero Fear The Dragon continues to churn out the winners from his first two crops in America. He was represented by a pair of two-year-old winners in Fearthelue (1:54.4) and Fear Of Sports (1:55.2) and the three-year-olds Diva’s Dragon, who won the $US32,000 Daryl Sherman Pace in 1:53.8, Odds On Capitalism (1:51.4), Pearl Snaps (1:52.6) and Sectionline Dragon (1:53).
Lady Zegna, a first crop daughter of Yirribee stallion Warrawee Needy, overcame a brief miscue and a torrid passage to notch her fourth win in seven starts at the Gloucester Park midweek meeting.
Meanwhile, Renaissance Man’s smart son Medieval Man led throughout at Gloucester Park on Friday (June 24) to complete his 15th win and lift his stake earnings beyond the $130,000 mark.

Yirribee was established in 1985 by Rod Woodhouse and Ian Walsh, and was officially opened in 1986 by Darren Binskin and David Aitken.
Yirribee Pacing Stud has since grown to be one of the leaders in the Australian Standardbred breeding industry. Rod and Ian were business partners in an unrelated industry and shared a common interest as trainers and drivers. Ian retired from his interest in Yirribee in 2009 and sadly has since passed away after a long battle with illness.
Yirribee Pacing Stud is situated close to Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia and encompasses over 400 acres of rich alluvial river flats which is all under irrigation and has extensive frontage to the Murrumbidgee River.
The purchase of US stallion Jeremy Lobell to stand his first season in Australia in 1986 combined with the picturesque and fertile environment allowed Yirribee to establish itself very early as leader in the breeding industry. From very early on it has been considered by the Yirribee team that the very best of care combined with the best possible environment would a recipe for success.
