Sasso Corbaro Another Mill Park Success

The China Horse Club colours were carried to victory at Randwick on Saturday by promising filly Sasso Corbaro, a $290,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Mill Park draft.

The Kris Lees trained daughter of All Too Hard was second at her first two starts in June and July before breaking her maiden at Newcastle on July 27.

Spelled after that, she has returned a stronger more mature filly and gave promise of better to come when resuming with a facile win at Hawkesbury before Christmas.

Stepped up in class and distance for this Benchmark 76 event over 1100 metres, Sasso Corbaro dominated her rivals to win by three and a quarter lengths as a short priced favourite.

Connections will be hoping her prizemoney of $135,930 is now sufficient to secure her a start in the $2million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas on January 13.

Bred by Mill Park and partners, Sasso Corbaro is a half-sister to Group 3 placed Smart Manouevre from stakes-placed Furline, a daughter of Group II winner Umaline.

Mill Park sold the current two year-old from Furline, a filly by I Am Invincible, for $500,000 at the 2017 Magic Millions.

Named She's Furline, the filly is in the ownership of Aquis Farm, Leidel Racing, L L C, Stonestreet Stables Llc in the care of Snowden Racing where she has trailled on two occassions, most recently finishing third to leading Magic Millions 2YO contender Secret Lady.

Furline has a yearling colt to follow by Foxwedge, and missed to I Am Invincible the following season, since being being covered by All Too Hard on Septmeber 1.

Sasso Corbaro looms as yet another a future stakes horse sold by Mill Park, who will present another top class draft at the 2018 Magic Millions. Click here to see them.
