TBB Racing are delighted to have put a syndicate together to race a share in an American Pharoah filly with Tom Dabernig.
Dabernig Racing continues to go from strength to strength since Tom went out on his own.' When he started he had horses across three or four properties and the winners just kept coming.
The Dabernig team are now settled in to their 40 horse barn on course at Warrnambool and they haven't looked back since.
The American Pharoah x Angel Face filly was purchased by Dabernig Racing at the Inglis HTBA May Sale and she was on the radar of TBB's Todd Blum.
"Tom would be one of the country's leading horseman and he has really hit the ground running since opening his own stable, you only have to look at the owners that have continued to support him," Blum
"I was overseas at the time of the sale and was keeping an eye on the results online while I was out for dinner in Mendoza, Argentina.
"I had three horses on my shortlist and was eager to see where they ended up.
"Having had a little bit to do with Tom and Cassi Dabernig through my work with The Trainers Hut Media when they secured this filly, we just had to get involved.
"Some good clients of Tom's who have raced a lot of the family in the Jenkins family jumped in also and there are apparently some really good racing people involved.
"I was quick to get some people involved and we have taken a small hare to join in the fun."
American Pharoah was a world class racehorse in America and is having a global impact on racing as a sire. He has sired five Group 1 winners across a number of countries and his filly look very smart. Much like Longchamp Group 1 winner Above The Curve.
Angel Face is by Fastnet Rock and is a half-sister to Cat's Whisker, making her a three-quarter-sister to Group 1 Blue Diamond-winning filly CATCHY (also by Fastnet Rock ex Cat's Whisker).
Purchased from Coolmore Stud she is a filly that will be given plenty of time and is currently enjoying a break after completing her early education.
"American Pharoah's have shown they can get a bit of distance and I think that although there has been some early ones such as Tijuana, majority of them appreciate time and distance so here's hoping we have an Oaks style of filly on our hands," Blum added.
TBB Racing is a young racing group that is aiming to get people involved in horses that maybe normally wouldn't. It is about introducing new people to the experience of racehorse ownership.
