Wanted becomes first Fastnet Rock son to stud

GROUP 1 Newmarket Handicap winner Wanted has become the first son of Coolmore's new reverse shuttler Fastnet Rock to retire to stud.

Eliza Park Stud in Victoria, Australia, has snapped up Wanted and will stand him alongside the likes of Bel Esprit, Danbird and Magnus. His first book has been limited to 80 mares and his fee has been set at A$38,500 (£23,230, €26,525).

Wanted hails from the first crop of Fastnet Rock and was his sire's most expensive yearling that season, at A$800,000.

Trained by Peter Moody, he won the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes at two and made all the running to win last month's Newmarket Handicap .

Shrapnel, his two-year-old half-brother by Charge Forward, won the Group 3 Marsh Breeders' Stakes in February. The pair are out of the Snippets mare Fragmentation.

Fastnet Rock is currently the leading second-crop sire in Australia. The son of Danehill is standing his first season at Coolmore in Ireland this spring.
