When Gemma Hewitt, the Group 1 trainer originally from Bathurst and owner of Laughing Lilly, wanted to give her mare the best shot of leaving a future star of the sport she engaged the services of a leading QLD stud. Together they went about selecting her best sire option to match with this broodmare from Mach Three. An earlier Mach Three broodmare cross produced a truly stunning Sweet Lou colt, Fourever Boy (winner to date of $997,845), and now it has also produced another future star on the rise, Lot 46 in the upcoming APG Gold Coast Sale.

To understand a bit more about the pedigree of this horse lets look back in the lineage to Mach Three.

Mach Three’s influence on the Standardbred breed will forever be cemented as the sire of the legendary Hall of Fame racehorse and supersire Somebeachsomewhere ($3.3 Million, 1:46.4 World Record).

He posted a record of 7-2-0 in nine starts at two in 2001 and won the $1.1 million Metro Pace at Woodbine in 1:51.4 while under the tutelage of Brett, Shawn and Bill Robinson, along with Monte Gelrod.

The Metro victory came seven months after Karl Magid died of cancer. The following year, Mach Three won the $1 million Meadowlands Pace in a career best 1:49.

At three, Mach Three had a record of 11-2-2 in 18 starts to give him a career record of 18-4-2 in 27 starts and earnings of $2,376,700. Mach Three was predominantly driven by Randy Waples at two and John Campbell at three. Mach Three stood his entire career at Tara Hills Stud in the northern hemisphere and his later career at Alabar in the southern hemisphere. His first foals hit the ground in 2004.  To date Mach Three has sired 17 millionaires including:
