Shooting To Win (Northern Meteor) sired his first stakes winner yesterday when Ms Catherine (3 f ex Lucky Diva by Perugino) took out the Typhoon Tracy Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m) at Moonee Valley. The Caulfield Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) winner, who went to stud in 2015, is also the sire of Kubrick, runnerup in last year’s JJ Atkins Plate (Gr 1, 1600m) and inaugural winner of the $1 million Bondi Stakes (1600m), as well as the stakes-placed juvenile Shotmaker.
Ms Catherine is the first stakes winner and one of five winners for her dam, the Group 3 winner Lucky Diva, who in turn is a sister to Listed winner Gina Lollawitcha and a half-sister to stakes winners Spirit Of Westbury (Sir Tristram) and Duke of Westbury (Sir Tristram). Shooting To Win stands for a fee of $22,000.
