Australian Thoroughbred

A-Z of Australian Horse Racing and Breeding.

11/11/2019 Five for Ocean Park 

The emergence of Waikato Stud’s sire Ocean Park (Thorn Park) this season continued on Saturday when Oceanex (4 m ex Danex by Danasinga) made up for a luckless campaign with a valuable Matriarch Stakes (Gr 2, 2000m) victory.
The Mick Price and Mick Kent Jr-trained Oceanex is by the same sire as Epsom Handicap (Gr 1, 1600m) winner Kolding who also landed last week’s $7.5 million Golden Eagle (1500m) at Rosehill. Ocean Park, who won the 2012 Cox Plate (Gr 1, 2040m), is also the sire of Group 3 winner Tofane and Listed winners Seaway and Ocean Jewel.
He stands for NZ$15,000 (plus GST).
