Déjà vu Morphettville Double for Mill Park Graduates

Two weeks ago, progressive four year-olds Beluga Blue and Mail It In made it a winning double at Morphettville for yearlings sold by Mill Park and they repeated the performance on Saturday.

Prepared by Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas, stakes-winning Lookin at Lucky (USA) mare Beluga Blue was having her second run back from a spell after finishing fourth in the Group III SAJC Ubet Fillies Classic over 2500 metres back in May.

She was sent out favourite for the 1400 metre contest and scored by a length, her fourth win from 16 starts with prizemoney topping $224,000.

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 made it back to back wins at 1550 metres, travelling handy to the lead and kicking away to win by a length as favourite.

Mail It In has won four of 21 starts earning over $210,000 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.
