40th Stakes-Winner for Fastnet Rock
Lightly raced sprinter Undeniably (6g Fastnet Rock x Suggestive, by Al Hareb) scored the biggest win of his career when taking out the Listed MRC Christmas Stakes at Caulfield on Boxing Day. Undeniably has always shown ability in a career peppered with lengthy spells due to varying issues including a near fatal illness, but has taken until now to land his first Black Type success. The Mark Kavanagh trained gelding improved on his first up second to Catapulted in the Listed MRC Doveton Stakes on December 8, racing up on the pace and powering clear for Jake Noonan to win the 1200 metre sprint by three-quarters of a length. “It was a beautiful ride today by Jake,” said stable representative Merv Harvey. "He’s a big monster of a horse, but he’s a very happy horse at the moment. Last time in, he used to charge in his races and they couldn’t hold him and today he settled well in behind the leaders and he hit the line good.” A $360,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Turangga Farm draft, Undeniably has won four races and placed five times from just 16 starts earning more than $250,000 in prizemoney. He is one of eight winners from nine foals to race from terrific producer Suggestive, whose offspring are headed by Group I VRC Emirates Stakes winner Sky Cuddle, Group II winner Highly Recommended (also by Fastnet Rock) and Group III winner Sky Love – all of them bred by Turangga Farm’s Stuart Ramsey. Undeniably is from the first crop of foals sired by champion sire Fastnet Rock and is his 40th stakes-winner.
