Progressive four year-olds Beluga Blue and Mail It In were impressive winners at Morphettville on Saturday and both were sold as yearlings by Mill Park.
Prepared by Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas, stakes-winning Lookin at Lucky (USA) mare Beluga Blue was resuming from a spell after finishing fourth in the Group III SAJC Ubet Fillies Classic over 2500 metres back in May.
Fresh and ready to fire, she was sent out favourite for the 1400 metre contest and scored by a length and a quarter, her third win from 15 starts with prizemoney topping $190,000.
Consigned for sale by Mill Park at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale, Beluga Blue made $100,000 to the bid of Leon Macdonald and runs for a syndicate of owners that includes her breeder Harry Perks.
A half-sister to talented winner Burgundy Blast, she is the second foal of Choice of Colours, a metro winning Redoute’s Choice mare from the family of Group winners Excited Angel, Typhoon and more recently Text’n Hurley and Delago’s Secret.
Also saluting was Reset gelding Mail It In, a $50,000 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale purchase from the draft of Mill Park.
Prepared by Leon MacDonald and Andrew Gluyas, Mail It In has been racing without luck of late, but had it all come together for him in this 1550 metre event, charging home from the back of the field to score by nearly two length as favourite.
Mail It In has won three of 20 starts earning over $185,000 in prizemoney and is a half-brother to Group III winner Daytona Grey being from terrific producer Southern Rose, who sadly died earlier this year.
