50 STARTS – 28 WINS – 19 PLACINGS
Lochinvar Art has an imposing record, winning 28 races and placing 19 times from just 50 starts, leaving him unplaced on only three occasions.
Due to ongoing issues stemming from a foot abscess, connections have joined forces with Cobbitty Equine Farm to stand him for a one off season whilst he is rehabilitating…so ensure you make your enquiry now before it’s too late!
Winning his first group one as a three year old, Lochinvar Art really signalled he’d taken the next step into a potential great when he smashed the Melton 1720m track record with an unthinkable 1.48.6 mile rate winning the Group 1 4YO Bonanza. Lochinvar Art really transformed into a megastar at four, winning the Chariots Of Fire and earning himself a ticket into the Miracle Mile where he finished a mighty brave second behind King Of Swing NZ. Seven months later, LOCHINAR ART went on to take out the 2020 Group One Victoria Cup beating the likes of King of Swing smashing the clock in 1:51.4 over 2240m at Melton again. Then taking out another 4 group wins just months after that, such as the Ballarat Cup and the Hunter Cup.
LOCHINVAR ART is one of Australasia most exciting pacers, standing a one off season here at Cobbitty Equine Farm before making a race track return.
“They don’t come around very often and thank God I’ve got him,” Moran said. “He’s got everything. He’s so fast that it’s just not funny.”
“He’s the best horse in Australasia now the way he’s developed and improved has been incredible,” he said. “It was just over a year ago he beat me on Self Assured and smashed the track record in that 4YO Bonanza. It certainly made me stand-up and take notice” – Mark Purdon
“What I find a little scary is that I‘m not convinced he has peaked yet, He has strings to his bow; he can lead, sit parked, pour the pressure on and is probably even best as a sit sprinter but few horses can keep up with him. He breaks track records regularly and sometimes without being pushed. The clock doesn‘t lie. He is a beautifully gaited pacer. Not unlike the way (former greats) Paleface Adios and Christian Cullen would cover the ground” – the voice of harness racing Dan Mielicki
Whether it is racing – Standardbreds or Thoroughbreds – rehabilitation, agistment or breeding, Cobbitty Equine Farm’s location, facilities and operations ensure the horses welfare and development are paramount.
