The 15-year-old Observatory mare Tinnarinka is offered for sale.
A useful performer when trained by Richard Hannon senior, she was runner-up on the second of three outings as a juvenile, before injury intervened and she missed her three-year-old season. However, she returned better than ever at four and won a mile handicap at Lingfield, as well as finishing second over a mile and a quarter at the same venue.
Tinnarinka has demonstrated herself to be equally potent as a broodmare, with her six foals to have raced thus far resulting in three winners. These include the 86-rated seven-furlong winner Mystical Moment and the 81-rated dual five-furlong winner Clumber Street.
That Tinnarinka would succeed as a breeding animal is no surprise as she hails from a black-type producing family. Her half-sister Montecito was Listed-placed, whilst her second dam Danseuse du Soir won the Grp-1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches and Grp-1 Prix de la Foret prior to producing the Grp-1 winner Scintillo and the multiple Grp-3 winner Jumbajukiba.
Her sire Observatory is also now gaining increased recognition as a broodmare sire. His standout performer in this sense is the recently retired Grp-2 Coventry Stakes winner Calyx, although the Grp-1 Cheveley Park Stakes heroine Vorda, the Grp-1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Epicuris, the Grp-1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches runner-up Irish Rookie and the four-length Grp-3 Princess Margaret Stakes victrix Fair Eva confirm that he is no one hit wonder.
With a winning racing record and eyecatching pedigree, there is no doubt that Tinnarinka offers excellent value at the advertised price.
