Czarson Earns a Trip to the Gold Coast
Mark Smith - Saturday December 8

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained Czarson will head to the Gold Coast in January for the Magic Millions 2yo Classic after keeping his record at a perfect two for two with a dominant performance in a 2yo Handicap over 1200 metres at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday.

The chestnut son of Stratum was coming off a two and a quarter length win when on debut at Gosford back on November 24.

With Tim Clark in the saddle, Czarson went straight to the front and simply galloped his opponents into the ground, defeating last start Rosehill winner Kiamichi (Sidestep) by two lengths with the $1.5 million Redoute's Choice colt Creator a further three lengths back in third.


Stable representative Neil Paine said the decision now was whether Czarson (pictured as a yearling ) would need another run before the 2yo Classic min five weeks time.

"He improved so much in his trackwork from  last start we had no problems with the 1200 metres today because we knew he would relax," Paine said.

"With all Tulloch Lodge two-year-olds, Gai and Adrian just get them switched on and they know what to do from the time they jump.

"Adrian is over in Hong Kong at the moment and he watched the race over a cup of coffee with the owner."

A $200,000 purchase by PL Bloodstock out of the Amarina Farm draft at the 2018 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Czarson is the first foal of the talented Show A Heart mare Wobbly Boots who won five of her 10 starts.

A half-sister to the stakes-placed Aqua Vite (Northern Meteor) from the family of Group 1 George Main Stakes winner Mr Celebrity and dual Group 1 winner Prince Salieri, Wobbly Boots has a filly by Epaulette in the Amarina draft at the upcoming Inglis Classic Yearling Sale (Lot 814).

Widden Stud's Golden Slipper-winning son of Redoute's Choice died 13 days into the 2016 season. 

He had 15 live foals from that crop, two of which will be heading to the Magic Millions while Inglis has attracted seven to the Classic sale.
