Edinburgh Park – Biggest and Best
Tara Madgwick - Saturday January 5
When you can produce sale-toppers and stakes-winners, your yearling draft will always be a must inspect and Edinburgh Park have upped the ante in 2019 to present their biggest and best ever draft at the Gold Coast with 16 Magic Millions yearlings to offer.

Edinburgh Park will offer three yearlings from the family of G1 winner and $1.8 million earner Comin' ThroughIan Smith's boutique breeding operation on the mid north coast of New South Wales has established a reputation for excellence driven by ongoing results on the track at the highest level.

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, Amovatio and Golden Spin, Edinburgh Park is a brand to be respected.

New stars are emerging all the time from Edinburgh Park and include this season's promising three year-olds Zizzis and Wonderbabe, who has a full brother headed to the Gold Coast and highlighted below.

Also talented Rubick two year-old Alburq, who has placed at his only two starts to date and a real rising star in the Darren Weir trained four year-old Tamasa.

A lightly raced son of So You Think, Tamasa has five wins and two seconds from just eight starts and has been brought along slowly, but with untapped ability could easily emerge as a serious player in 2019 for the champion trainer.

Edinburgh Park will present a draft of 16 with highlights below and see them parading at Stable I 19-26 and J 1-7.
