ADRENALINE BUYS ANOTHER ROTHESAY
This Rothesay colt was on Adrenaline’s watch-list from the outset at the 2015 March Magic Millions Yearling Sale. Not only did Adrenaline syndicate his half-brother in 2013, they also race Supersay, an early two-year-old and the first winner to come out of Rothesay’s first crop.
Rothesay emerged as one of the most popular first season sires in 2014, now with the horses first crop having closed of the 2014-15 season he is Queensland’s Leading First Crop Sire with 14 individual winners with earnings of more than $653,300. Adrenaline, know a number of leading trainers who speak highly about the juveniles by Rothesay in their stables.
Rothesay is by Fastnet Rock, who has sired 15 individual Group 1 winners from his first five crops including Atlantic Jewel, Mosheen, Wanted, Foxwedge, Super Cool, Sea Siren and Nechita. Other Australian turf stars that are closely related to Rothesay are four times Group 1 winner and popular young sire, Sepoy (winner of the Golden Slipper-Blue Diamond double and more than $3.8 million in prize money) and four times Group 1 winner Guelph (winner of the Caulfield Thousand Guineas, Sires Produce and more than $1.6 million).
Bethany is a winning daughter of successful Queensland broodmare Huntington Girl. Huntington Girl has produced 13 runners for 12 winners including stakes winners Dynamic Love (Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes and Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes) and Key Bar Nights (Sir Douglas Wadley Stakes and the Group 2 Champagne Classic). Bethany has already produced Saraji who is stakes placed with more than a quarter of a million dollars in prize money.
NOT ENOUGH? This colt is physically impressive as you can see in the pictures. The colts sire, Rothesay, is tall standing a little over 16 hands high and appears to be siring yearlings that are well grown. Adrenaline Thoroughbreds belive this colt will race as a late two-year-old and/or early three-year-old as they love the female family and coupled with the colts presence, they believe he’s an exciting prospect to race.
The syndicate and colt’s career will be managed by Adrenaline Thoroughbreds.
Tony Gollan claimed another Brisbane metropolitan trainers perimership chalking up 79 winners to claim the 2014-15 honours a year after winning is first.

Tony brings the knowledge of generations to his training practices. He learned from his father, thoroughbred trainer Darryl Gollan, and was mentored by the late JJ Atkins (Australian Racing Hall of Fame trainer).
Originally from Toowoomba, Tony relocated his Darling Downs stable to Eagle Farm in 2012 and industry insiders were quick to notice his advanced training capabilities and potential. Radio TAB thoroughbred caller David Fowler tipped Tony to be “the next big thing in Queensland racing”.
Veteran racing journalist Bart Sinclair said, “Rarely have I been so confident about a young trainer rising through the ranks to stake a claim as a leader in his chosen career.” His success in the 2013-14 season proves these high expectations were justified.
Tony’s recent training achievements include:
Adrenaline Thoroughbred Syndications are impressed by Tony’s detailed knowledge of his horses and their competitors, his candid performance appraisals, and his generosity towards owners.
