$400K Son Of Fastnet Rock Racing At Coonamble - You Bet!

By Mark Brassel

An impeccably-bred galloper - and a last start interstate winner - will command his fair share of the spotlight when he steps out at Saturday's Coonamble race meeting.

Genetics was a $400,000 purchase at the 2014 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale but didn't make his debut until February of 2017.

Dubbo trainer Allan Gibson [pictured left] purchased Genetics from Ballarat-based Robert Smerdon and the gelding has only had three lifetime starts.

Last start the son of Fastnet Rock finished well to win a Ballarat maiden (1400m) by a length and a quarter.

"I'd heard he was for sale so I made some inquiries and have now had him for a few weeks," Gibson said. "I had a vet take a look at him in Victoria and he gave him the all-clear so I proceeded with the sale and hadn't set eyes on him until he arrived at my stables.

"He's a big, strong sort of horse and obviously has the right breeding. I spoke to Robert [Smerdon] and he said he has ability but is a lazy type of horse.

"If he performs up to scratch on Saturday I will look further down the track to possibly next year's Country Championships as the 1400m would suit him down to the ground."

Ken Dubar will partner Genetics from barrier three with the four-year-old having been allotted the steadier of 62.5kg.
