The Renaissance continues !
Addington double for Tintin
Former New Zealand 4YO of the Year Tintin In America, who is now standing at Yirribee Pacing Stud, Wagga (NSW), took the siring honours at the final Winter Meeting at Addington Raceway on Sunday (August 30).
The champion son of McArdle led in a winning double with two members of his first crop, Claus and Terrier, the former posting his sixth success and the latter his fourth.
Tintin In America was also represented by the three-year-old filly Smooth Rye, who came from worse than midfield to notch her third win at Pinjarra.
Million Dollar Cam claimed a winning double at the Bathurst midweek meeting with the three-year-old Pat McGarry (1:56.7), who was bred by Yirribee Stud, and Bill Shannon (1:59.7).
Highly promising three-year-old filly Didn’t I, a winner in 1:57.2 at Kimore and now the winner of four of her last five, and Arrived Late (1:59, Summerside Rcaeway, Canada) were other recent winners sired by Million Dollar Cam.
The Renaissance Man two-year-old colt Artful Jack continues to fly the flag for his sire in NSW. The colt scored a runaway success in 1:59.6 at Tamworth to complete a winning hat trick.
Another Yirribee Stud-bred winner was Mach Angelo, who emerged successful for the sixth time at Penrith. By Peter Wharton

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.
