Hell Or Highwater today gave Not A Single Doubt the earliest stakeswinner he's posted in the ten seasons his progeny have been racing, and it was a thoroughly well-deserved success.
Patiently developed by the Hayes & Dabernig stable and owners Alan Green's Echo Beach Bloodstock & Brian Singer, Hell or Highwater has reeled out three consecutive wins in Melbourne this Spring, culminating with today's $120,000 MRC Heatherlie H. 1700m LR.
The 5YO mare has now won 8 races and almost $400,000, and is nominated for the ATC Epsom H. G1 on 30 September.
Bred by Yarraman Park Stud, Ron Dufficy and Hilton Cope, Hell Or Highwater is the last of four foals out of the US stakeswinner Get Ready Bertie (More Than Bertie). She was bought for $210,000 by Edwards Elkington Racing from Yarraman Park Stud's draft at the 2014 Inglis Easter Sale.
Not A Single Doubt now has 44 stakeswinners, ten of them, like Hell Or Highwater, from his 2012 crop, a group headed by Group 1 winners Secret Agenda, Single Gaze and Scales Of Justice.
