2013 MM Gold Coast Yearling Sale VINS TOP PICKS
As published in the SMH
View six of Vin Cox's top picks for the MM Gold Coast Yearling Sale at www.sirecam.com
"He came up with eight yearlings, which he believes will impact on sale turnover and the list comprises five colts and three fillies sired by the usual suspects - Fastnet Rock, Redoute's Choice, More Than Ready, High Chaparral and Encosta De Lago. The list is in lot order, not which ones Cox figures will be the sales-toppers, because as managing director of Magic Millions, it wouldn't be in the company's best interests."
Lot 25: Fastnet Rock x Liberty Rose colt from Coolmore Stud. "This colt is really a man's man type of horse. He is extremely masculine and looks very forward. The Fastnet Rock's were sales-toppers at all but one of the major sales in 2012 and his progeny can easily repeat the dose next month."
Lot 188: Fastnet Rock x Rock Diva filly from Glastonbury Farms. "This is a gorgeous filly and a magnificent walker. She's not too heavy and her pedigree page is full of black type. She's the type of filly that the breeders will find irresistible."
Lot 249: Encosta De Lago x Sliding Cube colt from Vinery Stud. "This colt is the three-quarter brother to Manhattan Rain and closely related to Redoute's Choice. He's a lovely sort of horse and he has an extremely neat style. Also boasts a tremendous catalogue page which boasts a number of top-class stallions."
Lot 344: Redoute's Choice x Volte filly from Coolmore Stud. "This filly is a half-sister to the group 1 winner Dealer Principal and gives me the impression she will be a stylish two-year-old type. She's another with a very good pedigree and there will be plenty of buyers keen on her in the sale ring."
Lot 399: Redoute's Choice x Apercu colt from Newgate Farm. He's the second foal of a group 1 winner who took out the T.J. Smith Classic at Eagle Farm and has produced a cracking sort here. Not only is his pedigree strong but he has the looks to match."
Lot 650: High Chaparral x Judged from Denis Roberts's Trevannah Farm. ''He's by So You Think's sire and if you think he was a good looking horse - and he is exactly that - then this colt is another movie-star type. He's one out of left field as far as my eight lots are concerned but I am certain he will be tagged by many of the buyers in the Magic Millions complex."

Caviar Night For Eliza Park
The MCG has been the scene of many a great triumph, but for Eliza Park it was, in a sense, it’s biggest night out.
Eliza Park almost made a clean sweep of the 2010/11 Victorian Owners and Breeders Awards when Bel Esprit (above) took out the Sirecam Champion Victorian Stallion and Written Tycoon (below) the Stable Financial First Season Sire.
And there was many a vicarious thrill to be had too with Black Caviar’s owners grabbing the TROA Metropolitan Owners gong, while Rick Jamieson’s Gilgai Farm snapped up the Stu-Art Graphics Champion Broodmare with Helsigne, which was bred and sold by Eliza Park.
What’s more, Eliza Park ‘smithy’ John Pittard was bestowed the Leading Small Breeder Award for ‘arranging’ triple Group One winner Yosei … an honour he shared with Tarcoola Stud (breeders of dual 10/11 Group One winner Sacred Choice).
The relevance of such awards cannot be understated: certainly the trophies look nice in the ‘pool room’, but it’s sobering to gauge the strides Eliza Park has made in a relatively short period.
In just over a decade, Eliza Park has now accepted four consecutive, record-equalling, Victorian Sires’ titles with Bel Esprit, coupled with Written Tycoon’s efforts, who not only captured the state First Season premiership, but the national one as well.
The first Eliza Park bred progeny had yet to race at the time the last Victorian based sire won the Australian First Season Sires’ title!
It has been a memorable season to say the least … Black Caviar’s run has bolstered Bel Esprit’s stock globally but it’s essential to note that the World’s Best Racehorse is just one of the champ’s 112 winners for 2010/11 … three seasons ago he finished 82nd on the national chart by winners – this time around he’s in seventh spot.
In 2009/10, Bel Esprit was 21st on the earnings table and this year seventh … less than $14k off fifth spot. Amazing when you think he had $7.082 million in progeny earnings overall.
And let’s not forget Statue of Liberty and Hay List, providing Eliza Park with bragging rights to not only the world’s best racehorse, but arguably the world’s best male sprinter too.

STRATUM'S BROTHER MAKES $850,000 AT MILLIONS
The full brother to Stratum has taken the early running during today's first session of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
View Sirecam video of Lot 30 here
Leading Melbourne trainer Peter Moody struck late in the bidding process and secured the prized lot for his stable at $850,000.
Moody said the son of Redoute's Choice was purchased for a group of stable clients.
"We have not finalised anything yet. He is a nice colt - so happy to have him in the yard."
Bidding the colt kicked away at $300,000 and quickly rose through the $500,000 mark before hitting $850,000 when auctioneer Steve Davis let his hammer fall.
"He is a nice quality colt and I thought he was the colt of the sale. He has an exceptional pedigree being a brother to a Slipper winner and just an all round athletic colt."
Moody said he was keen to buy the colt and could have gone a fraction higher to secure him at the auction.
"We would have been prepared to go a little bit more, but we not have to thankfully," Moody added.
The colt's full brother Stratum is a graduate of the same sale ring and went on to win the Golden Slipper Stakes before retiring to Widden Stud where he has met with exceptional early success.
Last season he was crowned the Champion First Season Sire of Australia. His daughter Crystal Lily scored a dramatic win in Golden Slipper last year.
The colt was a member of the quality draft from New South Wales' based thoroughbred nursery, Reavill Farm.
The first session of the sale continues. Session Two commences at 11am (Qld time) tomorrow.
