Hill Smith Stakes Winner is SA Bred

Stakes Success for Expensive Dundeel Colt

Tara Madgwick – Saturday October 9

The focus of stakes racing on Saturday centred on Caulfield and Randwick, but the Listed SAJC Hill Smith Stakes (1800m) in Adelaide produced an interesting winner in Cerberus, a $750,000 Magic Millions purchase for James Harron Bloodstock from the Mill Park draft.

Trained by Anthony and Sam Freedman, Cerberus was placed in his first two starts at Bendigo and Cranbourne and was expected to appreciate a step up in distance.

He hit the line hard doing his best work late to win by a long neck and holds an entry for the Group I VRC Victoria Derby.

Place-getters Jungle Magnate (Tarzino) and Max Fire (Star Turn) are also entered for the Derby.

James Harron usually targets colts bred for speed, but stepped out of his comfort zone in purchasing Cerberus, who was the most expensive yearling by Dundeel sold in 2020.

Cerberus was a $750,000 MM purchase from Mill Park.Cerberus was a $750,000 MM purchase from Mill Park.

Raced by a syndicate of the usual JHB clients, Cerberus is the best of three winners from three foals to race from Scarlet Moretta, a metro winning Fastnet Rock mare from a big European family packed with quality miler/ middle distance type horses.

Cerberus is the 16th stakes-winner for Arrowfield Stud’s Dundeel and is bred on a nick that shows good promise with seven winners from nine runners to date.

SA Bred G3 winner in Hong Kong

HK Stakes-Winner for Epaulett

Tara Madgwick – Friday October 1

Champion trainer David Hayes had four impressive Aussie bred winners at Sha Tin on Friday, but none more so than Epaulette gelding Super Wealthy, who won the Group III National Day Cup (1000m), his dam sold this year  on Inglis Digital for just $500.

The six year-old gelding won a maiden race at Randwick in Australia in June 2019 as a three year-old before being sold to Hong Kong and was trained there by Douglas Whyte until Hayes took him over earlier this year.

David Hayes plans to target the Group I LONGINES Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) after Super Wealthy threatened Sha Tin’s 1000m course record with a brilliant three-quarter length win under Alexis Badel in 54.96 seconds, narrowly missing Valiant Dream’s course mark of 54.68s.

Hayes currently leads the trainers’ championship with 12 wins – five clear of Danny Shum – and had a day to remember posting his 500th Hong Kong victory after emphatic wins by exciting trio Nervous Witness, Lord Thunder and Master Montaro, all Aussie bred.

 

“He ran exceptional time, beating in-form horses (Sky Field and Lucky Patch),” Hayes beamed.

“He’s done it twice in a row now, so I’ve got complete faith with him going into the good races here in Hong Kong. I just like the way he’s relaxing, he’s matured.”

Hayes indicated the Group II Premier Bowl Handicap (1200m) on 17 October was Super Wealthy’s likely springboard into the Hong Kong Sprint on 12 December.

“That’s probably a really nice race (Premier Bowl) because he’ll be well in at the handicaps and that will qualify him for the Internationals,” he said.

“I would love to go to the Hong Kong Sprint with him. He’s in-form and can run time.”

 

Super Wealthy was sold at Inglis Classic by Bhima Thoroughbreds for $55,000.Super Wealthy was sold at Inglis Classic by Bhima Thoroughbreds for $55,000.

Super Wealthy was a $55,000 Inglis Classic ourtchase from the Bhima Thoroughbreds draft for Familia Nominees Pty Ltd / Homann Bloodstock and was then passed in when re-offered at the Inglis Ready 2 Race Sale.

He has the overall record of six wins and three placings from 14 starts.

Bred by South Australian breeder Kerry O’Brien, he is the best of five winners from imported More Than Ready stakes-winner Well Hidden (USA), who has a yearling filly by Hellbent.

Well Hidden has been a troubled breeder and missed again last year. The 18 year-old mare was offered through Inglis Digital in their 2021 August (late) Online Sale  where she was bought by Lisa Shephard for $500 (see her sale page here), a cheap price for a stakes-winning daughter of a champion sire that has now produced a stakes-winner!

No doubt all effort will be made to get her back in foal one last time.

Super Wealthy is the 16th stakes-winner for Darley’s Golden Rose winning sire Epaulette, who will continue his stud career in Turkey next year after being on-sold by Darley.

A second stakes win for Mill Parks SERADESS

Tara Madgwick – Friday September 24

Astern Filly Wins G3 Scarborough Stakes

A stakes-winner last season at two, Astern filly Seradess stripped fitter at her second run back from a spell at Moonee Valley on Friday night, hitting the line hard for Luke Currie to win the Group III MVRC Scarborough stakes (1200m).

Trained by Mark and Levi Kavanagh, Seradess was slowly away when resuming and finishing fifth in a Listed race on September 11, but was on the job this time around.

Seradess charged to the line to overhaul Godolphin runner Larkspur Run to win by a long head taking her overall record to three wins from four starts with prizemoney in excess of $200,000.

 

 

“She wasn’t quite wound up for her last run and took a lot improvement from that and she was ready to go today,” said Levi Kavanagh.

Purchased by her trainer for $50,000 out of the Mill Park Stud draft at the 2020 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale, Seradess is the best of two winners from four to race out of the accomplished racemare Obsidian Dragon.

A stakes-placed daughter of Hidden Dragon, Obsidian Dragon won nine and placed in eight of her 27 starts while banking $419,600.

A half-sister to two-time Listed stakes-winner Danedina, Obsidian Dragon has a yearling colt by Nicconi and has foaled this spring producing a filly by Magna Grecia (IRE).

Seardess is the first stakes-winner of the new season for Darley sire Astern, who won the Group I ATC Golden Rose in 2016.

He stands at Darley NSW this spring for a fee of $16,500.

Star 3yo filly stays in SA hands but changes stables

MILEVA  – She is the South Australian bred 3yo filly who burst onto the scene in Jan 2020 and immediately announced herself in Blue Diamond contention.

 

Bred, owned and trained in South Australia.

 

For her 4 year old season  MILEVA changes ownership and training hands but all is not lost for the locals who came to loved the  dynamo.

 

Geoff and Chris Tucker of LITTLE HILLS PASTORAL CO  bred MILEVA at Yorketown – a mating of HEADWATER with LADY EINSTEIN a winning half-sister to Melbourne Group 2 winner Second Effort.

 

Trainers Dan Clarken & Oopie Macgillivray purchased her at the 2019 Adelaide Magic Millions – Day 1 and Book 1 for $42,000.

 

Under this tutelage she has delivered 4 wins from just 9 starts and proved she can match it with the top level by winning the LISTED Manihi Classic. In this win she took the scalps of some big names including LYRE, GARNER, HUMMA HUMMA and BOLD STAR.

 

In season 21/22 MILEVA joins the stable of Phillip Stokes after an agreement to purchase the speedster by South Australian owner and breeder Michael Birchall.

MILEVA has been in the STOKES RACING Morphettville stable for a few weeks under the eye of Tommy Stokes. Plans are in place for MILEVA to be given her opportunity during the Melbourne Spring Carnival and to no doubt add to that beautiful record.

 

Michael Birchall has seen success at the highest levels and the story of BOUNDING is one of the most unique stories in breeding and racing after he sold horse as a yearling for $425,000.

BOUNDING went on to become a G1 winner of the Railyway in NZ and was then later sold  to John Moynihan, for America’s Stonestreet Farm for $1.9M at the 2016 Magic Millions National Broodmare sale.

In a storyline that keeps delivering a new chapter her first foal , a colt,  sold for $4.1M and all of this being wrapped up nicely with a close connection to the family of English Derby Winner Anthony Van Dyck.

 

Could MILEVA be the creation of another bestseller full of worldwide racing and breeding chapters ?

 

 

 

AWAY GAME set to test her AWAY GAME

 

Another impressive win for the #MillParkRaised bred AWAY GAME

Trainer Ciaron Maher revealed that he’d been looking for an excuse to set the daughter of Sitzel for a tilt at a feature race during the Breeders Cup, which will this year be run over two days in November at Del Mar.

Options could include the $1 million Grade 1 Breeders Cup Turf Sprint (1000m), the $1 million Grade 1 Filly and Mare Sprint (1400m) and the $2 million Grade 1 Breeders Cup Sprint (1200m), the latter two races on dirt.

Owners on the day, Members of the SA Thoroughbred Breeders and SAROA will be provided with free entry, a free first shout from the bar and a few nibbles during the day all within the Macquarie Room at Gifford Hill.

We are seeking your assistance to find a total of 7 sponsors for the day to take up naming rights and the club will offer these at a very low rate of $250 each but also to invite the members of your association to participate on the day.

This will be a great opportunity to have a good vibe between Breeder’s and Owners at the races at our spectacular racecourse on a long weekend.

We have created a link below which allows you to register and to assist the club with booking numbers, event preparation and identification we have attached a link below which will take them to a booking page.

Type in the promo code TBBS21 and that will bring up the free link.

Just put in your name/s and we will have you booked in.
