Promising colt Hi World (3c High Chaparral x Beauty World, by Danehill Dancer) claimed his first Black Type win in the Group III ATC Carbine Club Stakes at Randwick on Easter Monday.
Prepared by Peter Moody, the dashing bay was sent to the lead by Kerrin McEvoy and handled the heavy conditions a treat to repel all challengers and win the 1600 metre feature by a short neck over the Godolphin runner Farolitos.
A $120,000 Magic Millions purchase for Slade Bloodstock from the Coolmore draft, Hi World has won three races and placed twice from just six starts earning over $195,000 in prizemoney for his big team of Slade Bloodstock owners.
“He’s gone to another level today and is a credit to Peter and his team,” said Kerrin McEvoy.
“He raced a bit fiercely, but he’s a determined little fella!
“He doesn’t have to lead and will probably be better with a sit.”
Peter Moody is in no rush to push Hi World into Group I company.
“He’s still very backward, so we might only have one more run and then look to the spring as he has a lot of growing to do,” he said.
Yet another stakes-winner foaled and raised at Coolmore, Hi World is a half-brother to stakes-winner Loveyamadly and Group I placed American Crew being the fifth winner from Danehill Dancer mare Beauty World, who comes from the old Stage Hit family.
He is the 66th stakes-winner for ill-fated High Chaparral, who has a terrific draft of 15 for the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
