There was an
across-the-card four-timer for graduates of Coolmore Australia on Wednesday,
made up of a stylish juvenile winner for the Lindsay Park team and a trio of
promising three year-old winners.
All this just a couple of days after the mighty Winx
had rounded out a
group race treble for graduates of the farm for a second consecutive weekend.
"In our top bunch" is how co-trainer Ben Hayes described Sandown two year-old
winner Justice Glory
Now bound for the Group III
Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes at Flemington,
the Michael and Gail Crismale bred Justice Glory
joins the likes of
other Coolmore graduates Catchy
( Group II
winner) and Formality
( Group III
winner) amongst the eight juvenile winners by Fastnet Rock so
far from his 2014 crop.
Also at Sandown, the progressive Smerdon-trained three year-old Theanswermyfriend
a son of High Chaparral, signalled promise for the Autumn with a dominant
performance over 1400m.
At Randwick, talented colt I Thought So
joined the long list of So You
Think progeny gearing up for a productive Autumn with a classy win over 1200m
at just his second start.
Trainer David Pfieffer has stakes races in mind for the handsome colt and it
wouldn't surprise were he to join the likes of La Diosa
, So Si Bon
, Northwest Passage
and Smart As You
as black-type progeny of his sire in the near future.
Black-type also looks on the agenda for the Anthony Cummings trained Ma
following her powerful performance over 1100m on the same card. The
Uncle Mo filly will be looking to join stablemates Moqueen
(who is bound for this Saturday's Group II
Stakes) as stakes winning progeny of her sire at some point through the Autumn.
"The year has started off incredibly well for graduates of the farm as results
over the last few days demonstrate," said Coolmore Australia Bloodstock Sales
Manager Shane McGrath.
won her 16th
stakes race at Randwick on Monday, while Ektifaa
who was foaled and weaned on the farm for Winx
's breeders John and Deb
Camilleri, won in Group III
company in South Africa to complete a group
race treble for farm graduates. Catchy
had brought up the first leg of
the treble when winning the Blue Diamond (Fillies) Prelude Group II
Saturday and is now favourite for the Group I
Blue Diamond ahead of
other Coolmore graduates Formality
. Last week we were
celebrating a group race treble with Formality
, Man From Uncle
and Supreme Profit
, so the success really does speak volumes for the
farm and our team, while it's also hugely rewarding for our clients. "

Declaration Of War and Camelot will be on offer at the upcoming Inglis
Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, while Coolmore Australia has a draft of 32
yearlings catalogued for the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in April. See them here.
