Larneuk based Cluster has become One of Australia’s Leading 1st Season Sires.
Cluster has only had 3 runners so far, 2 of them winners Gee Gees Darl and Galaxy , Bunched has had one start for a gallant 2nd at Lismore during the week.
A particularly good looking son of the champion stallion Fastnet Rock (well represented by 142 stakes winners with over $166 million in progeny earnings… and who has already had nine sons sire stakes winners), the Gr.2 winning Cluster has inherited his sire’s strength coupled nicely with the refinement of his dam sire Last Tycoon whose influence as a broodmare sire is considerable – 152 stakes winners and over $237 million in prize money.
Cluster was lightning quick: finishing second in the Group Three San Domenico in his first run at three, he was a neck third in the Group Two Stutt Stakes and capped off his career with a brilliant victory in the Group Two Theo Marks Stakes. Better still, the acorn hasn’t fallen far from the tree as he is really ‘stamping’ his progeny, as evidenced by the first of his yearlings selling up to $72,000 at 2018 yearling sales – 12 times service fee.

I was very happy with the debut second placing from Bunched yesterday @lismoreturfclub . Not everything went to plan but she finished off strongly and has pulled up well. She will now head to Doomben @brisbaneracingclub meeting on the 27th of February. @KBloodstock @StudLarneuk pic.twitter.com/aHYrCmYQYO— Bryan Guy (@BryanGuyRacing) February 13, 2019
