It has been a busy week with the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale and a number of runners throughout the week.
Firstly to our runners and then our new purchases!
I thought BACKSTREET LOVER ran out of her skin at Sandown on Wednesday and was stiff not to win going down by the smallest of margins!
We produced two first starters last night with BEL SONIC (Bel Esprit x Ausmaid) and Redwood filly SEQUOIA LADY (see pictured) both running third and showing they have good futures.
WHAT A NICE BUNCH OF 2YO'S
I am extremely proud and excited by all our 2yo's which have stepped out this season. They all look to have good futures.
Impressive winner Tarcoola Spirit has been saved for the spring after her great win. Smooth Celebration and Kardashing both showed they have above average ability whilst Bel Sonic looked very promising last night. He has also been sent to the paddock to gear up for the spring.
Dixie Preacher (by Dixie Prospect) had a number of jumpouts and showed good staying ability and will also be held back for the distance races in the spring.
Our Ready to Run purchases (Sepoy, All American and Ilovethiscity boys) have shown some nice glimpses at home and will step out over the winter months and into the spring.
We have a bunch of other unraced 2yo's which haven't been tested yet so there is plenty to look forward to!
FINDING A WEEKEND WINNER
We had three runners this weekend. New Zealand filly TROIS VALEES has come back bigger and stronger. She resumes at Cranbourne tonight and should be hitting the line late.
STRATEGIC SPIN (pictured below) and WINTON CREEK go head to head tomorrow at Bairnsdale. Both should run well and will hopefully finish top 3.
MELBOURNE PREMIER SALE
We picked up some beautiful youngsters at the Melbourne Sales this week. If any of them take your fancy, call Julian (0427 662 977) or myself to get involved. Here they are..
I AM INVINCIBLE COLT - $120,000 + GST
A cracking colt with a stallions pedigree. His full brother (Vinnie Eagle) is a Group 3 winner and hopefully this boy can go a touch better and win a Group 1 which will make him incredibly valuable.
It is great to finally have an I am Invincible in the stable. He is arguably the hottest young sire in the land! See video below.
PIERRO FILLY - $50,000 + GST
This is a filly for the impatient owners out there! She is bred to go early and I will be aiming her at the early 2yo races over the Spring. By a champion racehorse who is doing an excellent job at stud with his first crop including his filly Tulip who ran 4th in the G1 Blue Diamond.
REDOUTES CHOICE COLT - $55,000
We teamed up with leading bloodstock agent Duncan Ramage at this years Melbourne Sale who is best known for purchasing superstar racehorse SO YOU THINK.
Duncan has bought countless champions during his time as bloodstock agent for the legendary Bart Cummings. He now works closely with James Cummings so we were lucky to secure his services.
If you after a staying colt that could win a Derby, then look no further than this Redoute's Choice colt who was one of Duncan's favourites in the sale. He is out of a Galileo mare and hails from the same family as AJC Derby winner ROMAN EMPEROR.
He is a cracking colt and a bargain at only $55,000. He is already 60% sold so don't miss out.
UNENCUMBERED FILLY - $35,000
She might be the cheapest filly of our quartet but don't discount her as she could be the bargain buy of the sale. She is a half sister to our very own BACKSTREET LOVER and is by exciting first season stallion UNENCUMBERED (who won the Magic Millions).
