Eliza Park’s first season sire, WANTED, is out of the blocks, covering the first of a full book on the second day of the new breeding season (2 September).
The lady having the pleasure of the Newmarket Handicap winner’s company was Woodman mare, Celtic Reign, who just happens to be out of a mare called Tugela.
And if that name sounds family it’s because Tugela is also the dam of Makybe Diva and Group winners Musket and Valkyrie Diva.
Interestingly, Celtic Reign’s Encosta de Lago yearling sold for $400,000 at the 2010 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.
According to Eliza Park’s General Manger of Operation, David Somers, it was “a good cover, no problems”.
Just like his previous career, Wanted is off and running!
