SJ Racing were able to purchase four exciting new yearlings at the Magic Millions Yearling Sales on the Gold Coast recently. All four horses will be trained by Tony Newing in Gosford where they will prepared to race early in the 2017/2018 season.
Our first purchase was a lovely CASINO PRINCE – PURPLE ROYALE filly who’s a 3/4 sister to one of the world’s best sprinters in ABLE FRIEND. She’s a beautiful horse who will be targeted for the Magic Millions in 2018. She has DANEHILL on the sire’s side of the family where she will excel over the mile. The filly also has ZABEEL on the mare’s side so he will inject some stamina into her making her a possible 2,000m horse.
Second buy of the day was a cracking MOSSMAN – BLUSHING RAHY Colt who’s a close relation to Golden Slipper winner MOSSFUN, sprinting Champion BUFFERING and Group 1 winner SNOWLAND. The family is full of speedsters who are best performed up to 1,400m. The dam has produced 3 winners from 3 foals so we’re extremely excited to see the colt in action and in the winners stall in the coming year.
On the Tuesday we purchased an athletic LOPE DE VEGA filly who has been bred to blitz at the mile. She’s a 3/4 sister to Champion Australian sprinter GENERAL NEDIYM. Also in the family is Group 1 Australian Guineas winner MILITARY PLUME, Japan Cup and MacKinnon Stakes winner HORLICKS as well as Group 1 Canterbury Guineas winner INTERSTELLAR. She is by Group 1 winning and producing stallion LOPE DE VEGA, Champion 1st Season Sire in Europe and son of Champion Sire SHAMARDAL.
Our final buy is a GOLDEN ARCHER colt who has to be seen to be believed. Strong with muscles everywhere, he’s related to Golden Slipper winner BINT MARSCAY, Epsom winner FILANTE and Coolmore Classic winner BOLLINGER. This colt is such an early developer you could nearly race him now. He will be targeted at the 2 Year Old Magic Millions Classic on the Gold Coast.
All of our new yearlings are from the best families in Australia and have been purchased to race as 2 year olds. For more information on how to secure your own chance to race with SJ Racing, please visit our HORSES AVAILABLE TO RACE page.
