Three out of five ain’t bad

The win of Only Wanna Sing (Your Song x Sweet Hollow) at Doomben yesterday made it three metropolitan winners from five purchases at last year’s Magic Millions January sale. Bought on behalf of Mary-Lee Trivett for $30,000, the colt was beaten a neck by Magic Millions race favourite, F Troop at his only other start, and joins fellow sales graduates, Pony Power and Pinch Memory as winners.

Better late than never!

Pinch Memory (Denman x Noesis) was a good winner of the two-year old race over 1050m at Doomben today, providing owners with some consolation after missing out on a start in the Magic Millions three weeks ago. Trainer Robbie Heathcote has big wraps on the gelding and will likely give him one more run this time in, before looking toward stakes races over the winter carnival. Out of an Exceed And Excel mare, Pinch Memory cost $57,500 at the Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

Miss Wahoo (Master of Design x Fish Dive) won her second race back from a 44-week spell, at Morphetville today. The filly ran second at her very first start, at Flemington, before two unplaced runs and has come back looking better than ever. She cost $45,000 at the William Inglis Classic Sale.


Four Saturday winners
9 December 2017

Ghodeleine (Monaco Consul x Swam River) (photo above) won his second race for the Inglis team after racing four-wide in a six-horse field. Privlaka (Mossman x Endearment) made it 7 wins from 25 starts at Doomben, where Zofonic Dancer (Zoffany x Goddess of Wisdom) also won. (The latter is nominated for the $2milliion Magic Millions race for 3yos.) And Nasdex (Not A Single Doubt x Indexed) held on at Pakenham to score win five from his last eight starts. I’m just running out the door for a few days in the Coromandel before Christmas. Enjoy the sun everyone!

Ghodeleine wins for team of important owners
16 December 2017

Ghodeleine (Monaco Consul x Swan River) won at Murray Bridge today for her large team of owners from William Inglis. The form analysts at summed it up perfectly: ‘Took over @ the 200 & kicked away # too good here’. Congratulations to A J Munce, A A Inglis, Miss S T Flannery, D Mcnamara, S Mulligan, S Durrant, M A Pilkington, C B W Bavin, Miss B Connellan, Miss J Ellings, M Otto, S R Vivian, S B Hayes, Seymour Bloodstock (Mgr: D S Thomas) on your first victory at start two. I bought the filly for $14,000 at the Sydney weanling sale.

Aspen Lass (Alamosa x Tief) has taken out the Listed Metropolitan Trophy, a traditional lead-up race to the New Zealand Cup. I bought the mare (shown here as a yearling) at Ready to Run for $25,000 on behalf of Graeme and Leah Causer. Well done to the two of you, I’m wrapped! After the race Graeme told reporters, “This is our first horse. She didn’t cost a lot. It just goes to show that you can have some big thrills with the cheaper horses.” 

Half-sister to Caulfield Guineas winner for sale

Did you see Mighty Boss (Not A Single Doubt) take out the Caulfield Guineas at 80-1! A great result for the lucky few punters who were on it, and an even better result for my Victorian client who owns the half-sister by Declaration of War. I bought the filly from Coolmore for the princely sum of $21,000 at the Sydney Weanling Sale. BOBS eligible, she’ll go through the ring again at the Sydney Easter Sale. Bullion Mansion, a $625,000 purchase at the 2007 Easter Yearling sale, is a sister to Polska, the dam of Group II winners Catch A Fire and Seaburge. Polksa herself sold for $1.6 million as a broodmare so it's a valuable family.
