Could Lightning Strike Twice?

Jun 05, 2021

West Australians are awake up to promising young sire I’m All the Talk, who had a stylish two year-old winner at Wyong on Thursday in Walkin’talkin’, who is prepared by his former trainer Gary Portelli.

A close fourth on debut at Scone last month, Walkin’talkin’ was a hot favourite for the 1000m maiden and raced clear for a dominant victory scoring by nearly two lengths in the same colours carried by his sire.

Walkin’talkin was a $45,000 Magic Millions Perth purchase from the Mungrup Stud draft for Elite Thoroughbreds, who paid $40,000 for his sire at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale in 2012.

I’m All the Talk proved a fast and talented two year-old winning the Group III STC Skyline Stakes to earn a run in the Golden Slipper, the son of Stratum eventually retiring to stud in Western Australia where he still stands at Darling View Thoroughbreds at a fee of $6,600.

With his oldest progeny just three year-olds, I’m All the Talk has delivered some great results siring 21 winners from 39 runners highlighted by Group II winner Watch Me Dance, stakes-winner All Banter, Group II placed Em Tee Aye and eight more metropolitan winners.
