Lot 330 Fastnet Rock - Supreme Mind Bay Filly

2024 Australian Easter Yearling Sale


Lot 330 bay filly Fastnet Rock – Supreme Mind (Akeed Mofeed) $260,000 (draft: Newgate Farm)

Champion Australian Sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill), who has commanded a stud fee of $275,000, has been referred to as the Galileo (Sadler’s Wells) of the Southern Hemisphere – high praise indeed – and Te Akau experienced great success with his progeny through the deeds of Group One winners Rock ‘N’ Pop, Heroic Valour, Age of Fire, and Avantage, winner of nine Group One races. 

Not only is Fastnet Rock a Champion Sire with nearly 200 individual stakes winners, especially with fillies such as Avantage being his best performed Group One winner, but also as sire of sires, including triple Group One winner Merchant Navy, and proven as a broodmare sire of Group One winners. Some notable Fastnet Rock Group One winning progeny include: Atlantic Jewel, Mosheen, Dreamforce, Unforgotten, Planet Rock, Foxwedge, Atlante, Wanted, and the list goes on... in addition to the Te Akau Group One winners by him. 

Dam sire Akeed Mofeed is by Dubawi (Dubai Millennium), who has been the highest ranked stallion in the world and currently second to Frankel (Galileo). Dubawi is the sire of Makfi, who stood successfully in New Zealand, producing Group One winners in both NZ and Australia. On the dam line, the filly has a very influential sire, Golden Slipper (Gr. 1, 1200m) winner and Champion Australian Sire Canny Lad (Bletchingly), who adds speed and quality to any pedigree.

“She’s an absolutely beautiful and classic filly, just a darling,” said David Ellis. “Very much in the mould of Fastnet Rock, she has impeccable conformation, great balance, and an outstanding temperament.” 

The filly carries a Danehill cross, as the sire of Fastnet Rock and on the dam line of dam sire Akeed Mofeed (Dubawi).
