Bastille Goes Two for Two
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 1 March 2017
The Coolmore navy blue colours were carried to victory at Sandown on Wednesday by promising three year-old Snitzel colt Bastille, a $775,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Berkeley Park draft for Tom Magnier/John Warren Bloodstock/China Horse Club.

Bastille - Racing Victoria TwitterPrepared by the Hayes/ Dabernig training partnership, Bastille bolted in to win on debut at Benalla on February 12 by more than five lengths and was favourite for this 1200 metre assignment in town.

He travelled up on the pace for Clint Johnston-Porter and sped away to win by two and three-quarter lengths in a dominant display.

"It was a good win and we'll look to get him out over a bit more distance," said co-trainer Ben Hayes.

"We'd like to get him to Sydney for some of the nice three year-old races."

Bastille is the fourth winner from four foals to race winners from Starlevie, a half-sister by Fasliyev (USA) to stakes-placed Palace Glow, the dam of Group III Red Colossus and Nediym's Glow.
