Hollywood Emulates Glamour Mum
15 October 2012
It may have not have the Gr.1 Goodwood Handicap, but young mare Hollywood matched one of her mother’s feats by winning at Morphettville. The four-year-old daughter of dual Gr.1 winning star Glamour Puss recorded her first metropolitan win at the weekend with the promise of more to come.
Earlier this year, trainer Danny O’Brien managed to claim Gr.2 and Gr.3 successes with the recently retired Shopaholic, who like Hollywood is bred and raced by Waikato Stud, and whose mother, Splashing Out, was also prepared for feature race success by the Flemington trainer.
“I take pride in seeing progeny of our former horses doing well on the track and it’s even better when I have the opportunity to train them,” O’Brien said. “Glamour Puss was an absolute star and getting a metropolitan win on her pedigree page with one of her progeny is very satisfying.”
Saturday’s win was the second of Hollywood’s career from just five starts and O’Brien is hoping there is more to come from the New Zealand-bred.
