$750,000 Colt for Golden Slipper Winner Capitalist

capitalistxbooklet-1023Foaled and raised at Newgate Farm for his breeder Nick Vass, this Capitalist colt from Booklet made a big splash at Magic Millions on Wednesday when selling for $750,000 to James Harron, who purchased his sire from this sale in 2015.

A handsome chestnut stamped unmistakably in the image of his sire, the colt is a half-brother to smart winner Groundbreak and is the third foal of stakes-winning Tale of the Cat (USA) mare Booklet.

Sadly for her owner, Booklet died last year and her final foal is another filly by Capitalist.

$1.5 Million Written Tycoon Filly Sets Benchmark for Sire

written-tycoon karuta queen-filly-1020Fillies have been selling like second class citizens at Magic Millions this year in comparison to colts, but Strawberry Hill Stud’s Written Tycoon filly from Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Karuta Queen bucked the turned when selling for $1.5 million on Thursday.

The flashy chestnut was a showstopper and quickly caught the attention of Victorian bloodstock agent Sheamus Mills, who secured the star filly, now the highest priced yearling for her sire Written Tycoon.

Zoustar Mare Madam Rouge Wins $1million MM Snippets

madamrouge-mmFresh from success in the Magic Millions sale ring, Zoustar kept up the good work on the MM Raceday at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Chris Waller improved his enviable record on Magic Millions Raceday when Madam Rouge clinched a last-stride win in the $1 million It’s Live! in Queensland Magic Millions Snippets (1200m).

The champion trainer praised the ride of jockey James McDonald who, after beginning from the inside gate and settling three back on the fence, was able to plot a path to the middle of the track on Madam Rouge.

The daughter of Zoustar, who is out of the Al Maher mare Cabernet, unleashed a powerful turn of speed over the final 200m to win by a neck.

Snitzel’s Daughter Away Game wins the Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

AwayGame-MM-Classic-HomePageChampion sire Snitzel affirmed his status as a big-race stallion when his daughter Away Game raced away with Saturday’s $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic 1200m RL.

A last-start stakeswinner, the Maher & Eustace-trained filly was among several well-qualified runners who started at long odds in a competitive field, but at the business end of the race only Arrowfield graduate Stellar Pauline (by Not A Single Doubt) came within two lengths of her.

Nature Strip again shows his talent on the clock withDarley Sprint Classic victory providing a career-highlight

nature-stripNature Strip (Nicconi) proved himself as the fastest horse in Australia with  his  brilliant  win  in the Darley Sprint Classic (registered as VRC Sprint Classic) (Gr 1, 1200m) at Flemington on Saturday.

“He was airborne, floating across the ground,” jockey James McDonald said later. After featuring in this column on numerous occasions  for  his  efforts  on  the  clock,  Nature Strip showed the benefit of his time in the Chris Waller  stable  this  year  in  providing a career-highlight on Saturday.

Since joining the leading stable in February, Waller and regular rider  McDonald have    attempted to achieve the seemingly impossible in  getting  Nature  Strip to settle and  use  his  brilliant speed in a more effective way. And while he still  went  about  pursuing  his  front-running  role,  McDonald did  manage to get Nature Strip through a reasonably  docile first 200 metres before lifting the tempo to a very quick pace before dashing clear to win by three and a quarter lengths in a time of 1:09.23.
