Fresh Booker key to Goodwood

Talented sprinting mare Booker will jump from barrier 15 for the Group 1 Goodwood on Saturday but co-trainer Simon Zahra isn't too fazed by the visitor's draw.

The four-year-old won the G1 Oakleigh Plate back in February from barrier 14 when carrying 52kg and now returns to the races after two months on the sidelines.

In The Goodwood, Booker must share top weight with Sangster Stakes-winning mare Spright, but Zahra explains he takes extra confidence from her first-up record.

"All her form has suggested her fresh record is her best, even her first two runs," Zahra said on Tuesday.

"She didn't come out of the Newmarket Handicap like we'd hoped, so we gave her a few weeks up at the farm on the grass just to recover.

"We've had a perfect prep since she's returned back to the stables, she had a couple of nice jumpouts and she'll have a good gallop on the grass tomorrow morning and that should just tighten her up for Saturday.

"She's in great shape and didn't lose a lot of residual fitness from that freshen up, she's forward enough to run a big race."

Booker will be ridden by a jockey she's had a good association with in the past, combining to win two Stakes races when she was a three-year-old.

"We've got Dwayne Dunn aboard, he rides Adelaide extremely well, if we can get a good run in transit, we're in with a good chance," Zahra explained.

"We'll just let her find her feet, I think she is better ridden with cover to go to sleep and then she can build from the 600m.

"Once she gets to her top, her sectionals are outstanding."


Given Booker has not had a strenuous autumn campaign by any means, Zahra says the option to head north for the Queensland Carnival remains open.

"Maybe Queensland (next) if she performs well on Saturday," he said.

"A race like the Stradbroke (is an option), she only had two runs earlier in the autumn so she's not over-raced for this campaign, and if she goes up there she can have a good spell up there as well."

Inglis Easter Stars for Mill Park

The Mill Park brand is synonymous with quality and what better place to bring the best of the best than to the 2019 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale (April 9 and 10) at Riverside Stables in Sydney.

The Watson family owned and run Mill Park Stud might be based in South Australia, but their reputation for producing elite thoroughbreds extends right around Australia and beyond.

Booker High Res.jpg

Top class sprinting mare Booker (above) is the latest Group I winner to add her name to the Mill Park honour roll after capturing the Group I MRC Oakleigh Plate. She confirmed her status as an elite speedster when overcoming a wide draw to score a powerful three-quarter length win in the prestigious 1100 metre sprint.

A $230,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Mill Park draft at Inglis Premier in 2016, Booker has returned over $800,000 in prizemoney and will be worth even more than that as a broodmare prospect when her racing days are done.

Booker is the latest in a long line of Group I winners raised by Mill Park that includes Southern Speed, Rebel Raider, Serious Speed, Captain Sonador, Go Indy Go , Happy Trails and $3.8 million earner Fawkner, whose half-brother will be offered by Mill Park at Inglis Easter along with five other top class youngsters.

Consigned as Lot 417, the More Than Ready (USA) colt (above) is from Group III winning Danewin mare Dane Belltar, who has the perfect record of seven foals to race all winners highlighted by triple Group I winner Fawkner, $1.1 million earning Group II winner Tanby and Group II placed Viking Star.

Another highlight lot from a stellar producer is Lot 434, a stunning Tavistock filly (below) from blue-blooded Zabeel mare Elegant Eagle(NZ), a sister to the dam of Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed from the family of Golden Slipper winner Ha Ha.

This family has delivered much success for Mill Park and Elegant Eagle has the runs on the board as the dam of Group I ATC Champagne Stakes winner Go Indy Go, Group III winning sprinter Essay Raider and Group III placed Battle Brewing. The female members of this family are all being bred to the best stallions, so this is a pedigree that is only going to keep improving making this girl a real gem for investors looking beyond her racing career.

First into the ring for Mill Park will be Lot 73, a colt (below) by super popular young sire Brazen Beau from Group III winning Exceed and Excel mare Just Discreet, who comes from the iconic 'Discreet' family nurtured by renowned South Australian breeder David Peacock.

Just Discreet is a half-sister to Group I winner Maybe Discreet and closely related to Group II winner Serenely Discreet. This is her second foal and her first, a two year-old filly by Sepoy called Seemingly Discreet, is showing promise with a fourth and third at her first two starts in strong provincial Victorian maidens.

The late Sebring features as the sire of Lot 132, a handsome bay colt (above) from Group II placed Galileo (IRE) mare Miss With Attitude, whose first two foals to race are both winners.

Miss With Attitude is a half-sister to stakes-placed Oui Si Attitude, who is the dam of a very promising three year-old So You Think filly called So We Are, who has won twice this year followed by second in the Listed SAJC Laelia Stakes at Morphettville.

Written Tycoon is the sire of Mill Park's current pin-up girl Booker and he is also the sire of the next two featured lots, both powerhouse chestnut colts, just like their sire.

Lot 308 is a half-brother (above) to Group III placed It's a Myth and is the third foal of winning Redoute's Choice mare The Good Wife, a half-sister to four time Group I winner and $2million earner Divine Madonna and Group III winner Blessum. It's a prolific Black Type family that has also produced Group III winner Angel of Mercy and stakes-winner Maternal.

Lot 326 is a half-brother (above) to stakes-winner Guard Of Honour from good producing General Nediym mare Victory Cry, who has three winners from four to race.

A sibling to stakes-winners Reldas and Victory Chant, Victory Cry comes from the family of Group I winner Serious Speed and Group II winner Majestic Music. This colt's pedigree features a double cross of Golden Slipper winner Marscay as does Written Tycoon's Group I winner Tycoon Tara and his stakes-winner Danger Close.

Bluebloods - Mill Park's Inglis Easter Preview

Mill Park Stud has too many amazing racetrack graduates to list, however, their recent Inglis-catalogued winners include Naafer (Gr.1 placed winner sold at Easter), stakes winner Reldas, and stakes placed Smart Manoeuvre, Cappadocia, Girl Sunday, and Viking Star. The Mill Park paddocks have also produced the likes of Gr1 winners Fawkner, Happy Trails, Go Indy Go, Captain Sonador, Devil Moon, Southern Speed, and Rebel Raider.

Bluebloods spoke to Chris Watson about their upcoming 2019 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale draft of six yearlings, of which five are colts. “Mill Park are pleased with this draft, with all six yearlings having very current and active pedigrees.”

Zoustar Filly Headlines Premier Results

McEvoy takes shine to Zoustar filly Trainer Tony McEvoy, who bought a filly by Zoustar earlier in the session, believes the similarities between his brilliant filly Sunlight and his latest acquisition by the Widden Stud-based sire is almost uncanny.

Such is his belief in the physique and conformation of the filly he says she is likely to be up and running in the early juvenile races later this year.

“What a powerful, fast filly,” McEvoy said about his eighth purchase of the week.

“It is a cliche but Sunlight looked like that. All she wanted to do was run, she is full of fast-twitch fibre and she is going to be a ‘sit and steer’.

“She is a two-year-old, absolutely, and you’ll see her in October. She is a star of the future.”

lot 399 zoustar x ravenous lass filly_low.JPG

McEvoy also made comparisons with another stablemate, this season’s BRC B J McLachlan Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m) winner Sun City (Zoustar).

“They are not big horses but they are all power and just when she walked, it was all movement, she was like a machine with how everything fitted in,” he said.

“She is also off a beautiful farm in Mill Park, not many people do it better than them, and she is a beauty.”

The underbidder, Yulong Investments, are likely to buy back into the filly, who was the only daughter of Zoustar catalogued at the sale.

Catalogued as Lot 399, the filly is the second foal out of five-time winning mare Ravenous Lass (Stratum), who in turn is a half-sister to the juvenile winner and Group 2 winner San Nicasio (Hard Spun).

Mill Park’s Chris Watson was rewarded in the sales ring after electing to target the Premier Sale with the Zoustar filly rather than send her to sales earlier in the year.

“She is an early, forward style of filly but we thought we would place her in a sale where she would be a real standout,” Watson told ANZ Bloodstock News.

“We hoped it would work out that way and it has.”

Later on in the afternoon, Mill Park Stud also sold an I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) colt for $310,000 to Hong Kong agent Willie Leung of Magus Equine. The colt was Offered as Lot 411.

Lot 411.jpg

At the end of the Book 1 Premier Sale, Mill Park Stud sold nine lots for $1,372,000 at an average of $152,444.

Watson reiterated the view shared by many vendors this week in that high-quality yearlings were being well found by buyers and selling for above expectations.

“We couldn’t be happier. The nice horses are well sought after and if you have got them here in 100 per cent fashion they have been really well received.”

All Too Hard Mare Seeking Kiwi Black Type

A plan to chase black type with Sasso Corbaro is now coming together nicely for the former Australian mare.

The daughter of All Too Hard was originally set to contest the Gr.2 Westbury Classic (1400m) at Ellerslie last month for Newcastle trainer Kris Lees, but the mission was abandoned because of a setback.

sassocorbaro_500.jpg


However, her owners, China Horse Club Racing, decided to press ahead with a bid to boost her value with black type in New Zealand and sent her to Matamata trainer Jamie Richards, who produced her for an impressive successful New Zealand debut at Otaki last Saturday.

"She came over two or three weeks ago with the idea of chasing black type and on Saturday's run she showed she should be up to it,'' Richards said.

''We're still getting to know her. She's a big mare but she's certainly got a lot of ability."

Richards plans to start Sasso Corbaro next in the Listed Lightning Handicap (1200m) at Trentham on March 16.

Sasso Corbaro won four races and was three times placed in 12 starts for Lees with her most recent Australian win being over 1200m at Caloundra on Boxing Day. She had been taken to Queensland in pursuit of the Magic Millions Fillies and Mares (1300m), in which she finished among the tailenders on January 12.

Her earlier performances included a decisive win at Randwick and two unsuccessful attempts at black type in New South Wales.

''She's the first horse we've had in the stable for China Horse Club and it's a great start with them,'' Richards said.

''It was a really good win, to miss the kick like she did and come right down the outside and beat them hands down. We're not often sent horses like her to try and gain some black type."

Sasso Corbaro was one of three winners for Richards and led into the fifth Group One win for stable star Melody Belle in the Gr.1 Haunui Farm WFA Group One Classic (1600m) at Otaki, while at Matamata the stable provided the quinella in the Gr.3 Waikato Stud Slipper (1200m) with Yourdeel and Aotea Lad.

Richards reports that Melody Belle, who could be in line for a wildcard berth in the A$5 million All Star Mile, has come through her massive effort at Otaki in good order.

"We're working on a couple of options for her,'' he said. ''More than likely she will go out for a spell, but we'll finalise everything in the next few days.''

Yourdeel and Aotea Lad will press on for the Gr.1 Sistema Stakes (1200m) at Ellerslie on March 9 and Richards hasn't discounted stablemate Equinox, a debut winner at Trentham, also starting in the feature, despite finishing fifth of six in the Waikato Stud Slipper.

"Equinox is a lot better on good ground and he was tripped up by the ground on Saturday,'' Richards said.

''We'll work him up and see how he goes. He'll need to work really well to press on for the Sistema, but he's still in contention at this stage.''- NZ Racing Desk

Mill Park Quality to Shine at Premier

Fresh from a super successful sale at the Magic Millions on the Gold Coast, leading South Australian vendors Mill Park are now focused on the 2019 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale at the refurbished Oaklands complex in Victoria.

MP Premier Success High Res.jpg

The Watson family run Mill Park is a name synonymous with quality and the list of superior runners raised on their vast paddocks is a virtual who's who of Australian racing and includes $3.8 million earner and Caulfield Cup hero Fawkner, who was an Inglis Premier graduate sold for $70,000 in 2009.

Other Mill Park raised or sold Group I superstars include Southern Speed, Happy Trails, Rebel Raider, Serious Speed, Captain Sonador and Go Indy Go…. the list goes on.

Current stakes horses such as Booker and Mickey Blue Eyes, who both have siblings to be offered at Premier, as well as Pretty Punk, All Too Huiying, Waging War, Gogo Grace and Heart of a Lion are bringing a new chapter of success.

Also stamping himself as a super exciting prospect is the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained two year-old Dawn Passage, a brilliant debut winner at Randwick on Australia Day and then an unlucky fast closing third in the $2million Inglis Millennium.

Unbeaten Run Continues For Run Fox Run

Fastnet Rock stallion Foxwedge, who will stand at Woodside Park in 2019, had a very impressive winner at Kenilworth on Saturday.

His 3yo daughter Run Fox Run made it two wins from as many outings when romping home over 1000m for trainer Brett Crawford, jockey Anton Marcus and owners Craig and Ross Kieswetter and Ridgemont Highlands.

Run Fox Run 1 Feb 9.jpg

Sent off the 18-10 tote favourite for the Next Meeting Kenilworth 16 February 2019 FM 78 handicap for fillies and mares, Run Fox Run was always up with the pace in the 1000m sprint, and, coming to the 400m looked a hard horse to beat.

She duly cruised home to register a 1.75 length win –having scored an equally impressive win on debut, when skating home by two lengths over 1000 metres.

A $420 000 buy from the draft of Mill Park Stud at the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale, Run Fox Run was produced by General Nediym mare Victory Cry and is, as such, a half-sister to ATC Heritage Stakes winner Guard Of Honour.

Scintillating Debut By Dawn Approach Colt at Randwick

Darley shuttler Dawn Approach (IRE) may have found the big horse he has been searching for with the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained colt Dawn Passage who made an auspicious debut over 1000 metres at Randwick on Australia Day.

The stable was also represented by the better fancied Espaaniyah but when the Inglis Banner winner began to retreat, Dawn Passage was just warming up for Blake Shinn to credit the popular jockey with the perfect welcome back after a long time on the sidelines due to a serious neck injury.

dawn-passage--hart.jpg

Settled back worse than midfield, Dawn Passage displayed a brilliant turn of foot when balanced up in the straight to win running away by three and a quarter lengths from Starspangledbanner's half-brother Aussie (Snitzel) with Bivouac (Exceed And Excel) back in third. (photos Steve Hart )

"He is a lovely colt," Waterhouse told AAP.

"There are a lot of first-time owners in him and they will have a lot of fun.

"This would only happen in Australia. It's a great country we live in."


After spending months in a neck brace, Blake Shinn said he felt blessed to be back riding.

"It's been a long road back. I've done a lot of work and I've had a lot of support," he said

"I believe in fate and it was like I had someone riding with me.

Another of the hallowed grounds of Mill Park Stud, Dawn Passage was purchased by A Bott / G Waterhouse / Blue Sky Bloodstock for $150,000 at the 2018 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

Dawn Passage yearling.jpg

A half-brother to the G3 SAJC Jansz Stakes winner Dinkum Diamond (Keep The Faith), Dawn Passage is the eighth foal and the sixth winner for the now pensioned Raja Lane.

The daughter of Devaraja was a crack racemare earning over $428,000 with seven wins highlighted by the G3 SAJC Dermody Stakes.

Her final foal is a yearling colt by Rebel Raider that will sell as Lot 401 at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.

Four-time Group 1 winner Dawn Approach (IRE) clocked in as the sixth leading first-crop sire last season with several promising types, but he attracted just 36 mares last spring and in this cutthroat world his future south of the equator may well depend on the likes of Dawn Passage earning black-type.

Mill Park’s Magic Week

The first yearling sale for 2019 saw leading South Australian farm Mill Park Stud offer seven yearlings at the Magic Millions on the Gold Coast, with all offerings finding homes.

With a pair of fillies selling on the opening day of the sale, Angus Gold on behalf of Shadwell purchased Lot 112, the I Am Invincible x Sensualism filly for $300,000 while Queensland-based trainer Tony Gollan joined forces with John Foote Bloodstock to part ways with $180,000 for Lot 235, the So You Think x Tirarri filly.

While day two of the sale was a ‘rest’ day for the team with none of the draft heading through the ring, it was still all hands on deck parading the draft for potential buyers.

Lot 112: I Am Invincible x Sensualism filly sold for $300,000

Lot 112: I Am Invincible x Sensualism filly sold for $300,000

With an outstanding representation of international buyers at the sales complex, it was great to see Lot 547, our stunning Snitzel x Elusive Wonder filly get knocked down to international agent Kerri Radcliffe for $425,000 on behalf of American owner George Bolton, with the full-sister to stakes winner Modern Wonder set to head to the Caulfield stable of Ciaron Maher Racing.

Mid-way through the Friday session of the sale, Peachester Lodge went to $725,000 for our flashy Lot 667, the Not A Single Doubt filly out of the stakes-winning Hussonet mare Hussy By Choice.

The second highest priced yearling by her sire sold at the sale, the filly exceeded all expectations and we can’t wait to track her progress in the future.

Lot 819, the first colt from our draft to go through the ring, was knocked down to Gerald Ryan and David Raphael for $200,000. By Coolmore Stud’s ten-time Group 1 winner and now Group 1-producing sire So You Think, the colt was the first of our three yearlings to sell during the Saturday night session.

Next up was Lot 833, the Hinchinbrook x Moreau colt that was purchased by Hong Kong’s Bridle Bloodstock. With the progeny of the now deceased Hinchinbrook performing so well in Hong Kong through the likes of Group 1 campaigner Beat The Clock, it was no surprise to see where the colt will head.

Out final yearling to grace the Magic Millions sale ring was Lot 870, the filly by Written Tycoon out of the stakes placed Obsidian Dragon. Sold to Grahame Begg Racing and Rohan J Hughes Thoroughbred Services for $300,000, we are extremely confident about the prospects of this filly.

Lot 870: Written Tycoon x Obsidian Dragon filly sold for $300,000

Lot 870: Written Tycoon x Obsidian Dragon filly sold for $300,000

With her purchaser having trained Written Tycoon himself as well as his Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes-winning son Written By, we can’t wait to see how this filly performs for Begg in the future.

All in all, our draft of seven yearlings grossed over $2.3 million and averaged a very respectable $333,571, almost $100,000 above the overall sale average, placing the Mill Park draft in fourth position on average (3 or more sold).

The next opportunity to purchase a yearling from Mill Park will be at the upcoming Inglis Premier Yearling Sale commencing on March 3, where we have a draft of 11 catalogued to sell, before we back it up at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale on March 12 and 13 where we have a draft of 18 catalogued.

It’s worth noting that two of our recent multiple Group 1-winning graduates Fawkner and Happy Trails, were secured at the Inglis Premier and Magic Millions Adelaide respectively for a combined total of $81,000 and between them they won 21 races, six at Group 1 level and over $7.1 million in prizemoney for their connections

Mill Park's Foxwedge Filly Wins On Debut In South Africa

Newgate Farm’s proven G1 sire Foxwedge had an eye catching debut winner at Kenilworth on Saturday when his 3yo daughter Run Fox Run won over 1000m.

Trained by Brett Crawford, Run Fox Run impressed when showing her rivals a clean pair of heels in the afternoon’s first race, the Itsarush.co.za Welcomes You Maiden Plate for fillies and mares, under jockey Anton Marcus.

The three-year-old drew clear as a 4-1 shot to score a comfortable two length win first time out for owners the Kieswetters of Ridgemont Highlands –despite proving somewhat of a handful going down to post.

Crawford admitted in a post-race interview Run Fox Run had her issues, “She had her share of niggling issues beforehand and I must think the Kieswetters for their patience in letting us take our time with her.”

Bred by Mill Park, Run Fox Run was a $420 000 purchase from the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.

A daughter of G1 William Reid Stakes winner Foxwedge (also sire of the Kieswetter owned G1 Juddmonte Pretty Polly Stakes winner Urban Fox), Run Fox Run was produced by the General Nediym mare Victory Cry.

The latter, a placed sister to Listed Redelva Stakes winner Victory Chant, is also dam of the ATC Heritage Stakes winner Guard Of Honour and this is the family of G1 MRC Thousand Guineas winner Serious Speed and multiple G1 winning champion Dissident.

Mill Park Stud will consign a Written Tycoon half-brother to Run Fox Run at the upcoming Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.
