Mawingo showed a great turn of foot bursting through a gap to win the Gr.1 Doomben Cup (2000m). However, Mawingo’s most notable performance in Australia was running an unlucky second in the weight-for-age Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m), beaten by All Too Hard.
“He showed amazing speed and with any luck at all should have won”- Jockey Craig Williams after the C. F. Orr Stakes.
In addition to the success achieved in Australia Mawingo was also a Group 3 winner in Germany and a winner in Singapore over 1600m and he also ran 3rd in the Group 1 Singapore International Cup.
Mawingo’s pedigree is one of considerable depth. His sire, the globe-trotting Tertullian won five Group races in three countries. A son of highly successful Mr Prospector stallion Miswaki, Tertullian is a ¾ brother to Urban Sea, a sensation both on the track – winning the Group 1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – and at stud, producing the champion racehorses and outstanding stallions Sea The Stars and Galileo.
Mawingo’s dam, by the legendary Sadler’s Wells, hails from one of the world’s great stallion families, that of More Than Ready, Caerleon, Buckpasser, Woodman, Boucher, Rhythm, Private Account, Noble Bijou, Don’t Say Halo and Hula Chief.
“He is a lovely stallion with great conformation and an excellent temperament” – Graeme McCulloch stated upon Mawingo settling into Grenville.
Mawingo has left strong, precocious types on the ground with breeders being very happy with the great types he is leaving. Breeders have continued to show support for the stallion on the back of the weanlings he has had.
Mawingo will stand his third season at Grenville for $4,400 including GST, for bookings please contact Graeme McCulloch on 0417 018 895.
