The next Hopfgarten?
24 September 2016
Privlaka

Trainer Rob Heathcote labeled Privlaka (Mossman x Endearment) a future star for his stable following the sprinter’s track record victory at Eagle Farm on Saturday. Privlaka was having its first start since failing in a Group 3 race during the winter carnival. Afterwards, Robbie told reporters: “He’s in the same mould as Hopfgarten and I think he’ll be better once gets up to 1400 metres. To win over 1000 metres in 57.9 shows he’s got that touch of class and it’s a nice bonus.” 

Bidii Babe first past the post again

Bidii Babe

Bidii Babe (Not A Single Doubt x Arthur’s Lass) made it five starts for three wins with her impressive victory at Eagle Farm today. Trainer Robbie Heathcote has a big opinion of the four-year old mare and will now target the Magic Millions carnival in January. “She’s very good and I really do think she’s destined to be a stakes filly,” Heathcote said. “It was only a class three but she’s got a big future.”

Aspen Lass win 99 for Alamosa
3 September 2016

Aspen Lass (Alamosa x Tief) broke maiden ranks at start number four today, leaving her sire on 99 individual winners. The four-year old mare, bought for $25,000 at the 2014 Ready to Run sale, hasn’t had a lot of luck in her career to date, but I know connections were contemplating a start in the 1000 Guineas last season. Congratulations to Graeme and Leah on your first ever winner. Fingers crossed you have many more to come!

Two states, two winners today

Silento

Congratulations to all winning connections today. In Doomben, Silento (Savabeel x Speechless) (above) overcame the front runners' bias to win over 1350m. The six-year old gelding has now won four of 12 starts. Meanwhile down south, Prima (Sir Percy x Azabella) won fresh up over 1800m at Sandown. Prima looked to be a real stayer in the making when twice placing behind Mongolian Khan in guineas races, but hasn’t really grown since. Maybe the five-year old has turned the corner with today’s win. Both horses were cheap buys – $12,000 and $10,000 respectively.

Another week, another winner from sale

1 Nasdex

It was a case of same sale, same trainer and same syndicator again today, with the win of Nasdex (Not A Single Doubt x Indexed) at Geelong. The Melbourne Premier Sale graduate ($185,000), trained by Ciaron Maher for First Light Racing, won like a $2 shot should, sitting outside the leader before running away by three lengths. The dam has now had eight foals to the races for six winners. Not bad!

Savvy Belle

Savvy Belle (Smart Missile x Clever Clogs) first. Stately Boy (Stryker x Royale Harmony) second. Both horses were purchased at the Melbourne Premier Sale, for $160,000 and $100,000 respectively. Winning trainer Ciaron Maher is now looking towards an $80,000 race at Flemington for the filly (above) on 23 July. Well done to the team at First Light Racing.

Bidii Babe makes it two on end

DSC1980

She might have paid 26-1 but the win of Bidii Babe (Not A Single Doubt x Arthur’s Lass) at Eagle Farm today came as no surprise to those close to the filly. What a good effort to go from winning a maiden to beating stakes winning three-year olds 10 days later. This filly was a cracking type at the 2014 Gold Coast Yearling Sale but had no luck when trained in Sydney. Carrying the same colours as Pinch River, Bidii Babe has now had four starts for two wins. The full sister, a dead ringer for her, sold at the Gold Coast National Weanling Sale the other week for $170,000.
