Third Win for Royal Rumble

Adelaide, February 27 – Ending a frustrating run of minor placings with a deserved win at Morphettville on Saturday was promising New Approach (IRE) three year-old Royal Rumble, who has a yearling half-brother headed to the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale for Mill Park.

Trained by Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas, Royal Rumble charged home to win by a long head over 1250 metres and has now won three of 10 starts with four placings and earnings topping $133,000.

Bred by Harry Perks and retained to race with partners, Royal Rumble was raised at Mill Park and is one of three winners from three to race from Queen’s Kiss, a grand-daughter of stakes-winner Loving Cup.

A yearling colt by dual Derby winner Rebel Raider from Queen’s Kiss will be offered as Lot 260 at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.
