Australias Finest Broodmare Farm

Platelet Overview

A dual Group 1 winner of the Sangster Stakes, Goodwood double at Morphettville, Platelet, the speedy daughter of Strategic had 32 starts in her career for 10 wins and 14 placings. Amassing over $1.3 million in Prize money Darren Weir described Platelet as the most genuine and honest racehorse to prepare.

Platelet came to Cressfield following retirement from racing to start her new career as a Broodmare. She produced her first foal in 2016, a lovely strong Fastnet Rock colt. No foal was produced in 2017 after slipping to Snitzel, in 2018 she had another colt, this one by Exceed And Excel.
