Widden Sires Deliver Inglis Classic Winner

theenzo 500Stratum colt The Enzo broke his maiden is style when scoring a tenacious victory in the $250,000 Inglis Classic at Warwick Farm on Saturday, also providing Sebring with the milestone of having his first stakes-winner as a broodmare sire.

Seventh to Irish Bet in the Inglis Nursery before Christmas, the Mark Newnham trained youngster was third at his most recent start at Canterbury to Sandbar, who won the Listed ATC Lonhro Plate at the start of the meeting.

With Sandbar's win franking the form of The Enzo, Newnham said he was quietly confident his charge would make his presence felt in the 1200m dash.

Zoustar's Sunlight a Class Above in Magic Millions 2YO Classic

At the Magic Millions Yearling sale on Thursday, Tony McEvoy was forced to go to $600,00 to purchase the Zoustar x Solar Charged filly, which was double he needed to purchase her sister Sunlight the previous year.

sunlight mm2yoclassicSunlight paid all expenses plus some when she overcame interference to capture Saturday's $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on the Gold Coast.

From an outside barrier, EF Troop made a beeline to the fence causing crowding to Secret Lady and Sunlight resulting in Jonker being severely checked and almost put over the fence.

Redoute's Choice Filly Eases The Pain for Peters

Prolific owner Bob Peters did not have long to stew on the disappointment of Royal Star being withdrawn at the barriers in the Tattersalls Cup when that filly's sister Perfect Jewel captured the $500,000 Group II Sky Racing - W.A. Guineas (1600m) at Ascot on Saturday.

One of just two fillies in the race, Perfect Jewel was three wide with cover for Willie Pike and did not shirk the task in the straight. She was strong to the line defeating Achernar Star (Gingerbread Man) by three-quarters of a length with Art Series (Sebring) a length back in third.

Winner of the Listed Belgravia Stakes on October 28, the daughter of Redoute's Choice advances her record to 4 wins from 5 starts with earnings of $432,280.

"The ups and downs of racing. Her full sister gets pulled out at the barrier and this filly draws barrier 16 and still wins, how do you handle that," Bob Peters said.

"I've always liked her and Royal Star, they are nice fillies and it's just wonderful to see you can do it from this barrier. One of the best horses I owned, Old Spice, drew 16 and got beaten a lip.

"We resisted the temptation to run her in the Champion Fillies and kept her three weeks till this one and it worked."

Bob Peters won the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic in 2015 with the 3yo filly Perfect Reflection but was non-committal about Perfect Jewel following a similar path.

"It just depends on how she pulls up. She will tell us," he said.
