Trusting

Tale of the Cat / Legible

Trusting joins Turangga Farm this season, just as his first crop are ready to hit the tracks. An athletic and tenacious racehorse, Trusting was a proven performer at the highest level. He won three Group 2 races in his career: The AJC Warwick Stakes, the ATC Hill Stakes and the Tatt's NSW Chelmsford Stakes. Constantly competing against the best, he placed a further 5 times in Group 1 company while amassing his $960,000 in stakes earnings. With that great form on the board Trusting commenced stud duties for owners Patinack Farm in 2012.

Trusting brings some of the worlds best bloodlines to the table. His sire Tale of the Cat is a son of the breed-shaper Storm Cat. A grand son of Northern Dancer, Storm Cat was a leading sire in the USA, but his greatest success has been as a sire of sires. His sire progeny include Forestry, Giant's Causeway, Hennessy, One Cool Cat and Tale of the Cat. Tale of the Cat was the Champion 2YO sire in the USA in 2003 and has in turn sired the stallion Gio Ponti. This is a sire line that just keeps producing successful sires.

Trusting's dam line is just as remarkable, his dam Legible is by the Cambridge Stud stallion Zabeel. Zabeel has been a dominant influence in black type racing in the southern hemisphere and his sire Sir Tristram is arguably one of the greatest sires to stand in Australasia. So dominant was his influence on Australasian racing, that in 1996/7 season Sir Tristram appeared in the pedigrees of one in four of the 67 Group One winners in Australia.

Trusting is the complete package.

  • He's a proven performer who raced and won against the best of his era.
  • He has a pedigree that encapsulates some of the greatest bloodlines the world has to offer.
  • He's a great looking, well conformed athelete

Trusting will undoubtedly make his presence felt in Australian Racing and he stands for just $11,000 including GST.
