Fastnet Latina is a recent arrival to Australia and made his Australian race debut at Terang on Tuesday January 24 2017, winning impressively by almost 3 lengths over 1200m.


Fastnet Latina had three career starts in the USA, finishing strongly on each occasion.  His last start 3rd placing was most impressive.  He is seen as a 1600m-2000m plus horse, but has only been tried to 1600m to this stage.  This makes his win over 1200m even more impressive.

As his moniker would suggest, Fastnet Latina is a son of Fastnet Rock.  Fastnet Rock needs no introduction to Australian racing circles.  He is out of La Chunga, a daughter of More Than Ready that won at Group 3 level on two occasions.  Thus, he is a half-brother to the Listed-winner, Roheryn.

Fastnet Latina has now recovered from a minor tendon issue.  A vet report on his soundness is available.  We look forward to him continuing his career for Archie Alexander.  Archie is showing promising signs as a trainer at the Ballarat training complex.
