you can produce sale-toppers and stakes-winners, your yearling draft will
always be a must inspect and Edinburgh Park have upped the ante this year in
bringing their biggest and best ever draft to Magic Millions.
Ian Smith's boutique breeding operation Edinburgh Park
always bring a draft guaranteed
to please, but 2017 is a vintage crop.
A farm that has produced a world champion in Silent Witness, not to mention the
likes of Bull Point, Sister Madly, Dances on Waves, Eximius and current flagbearers
Amovatio and Golden Spin, Edinburgh Park is a brand to be respected.
New stars are emerging all the time from Edinburgh Park including current
season two year-olds Spoils, stakes-placed at her only start in the spring and
Serena Bay, who won her first two starts for the Waterhouse/ Bott stable before
finishing fourth in the $500,000 Inglis Nursery.
Lightly raced three year-old Snitzel filly Miss Wonderland is the latest star
on the rise for Edinburgh Park with two wins and two placings including a Group
III third at Flemington during the spring carnival.
A $200,000 MM purchase for Wylie Dalziel/ Moody Racing in 2015, the Ciaron
Maher trained Miss Wonderland was a fine last start second at Canterbury on New
Year's Eve and is primed for Magic Millions race day next week where she is
entered in both the $2million 3YO Guineas and $1million Fillies and Mares Plate.
