While some sales are still to be finalised, Eliza Park will take 14 yearlings to the Gold Coast Magic Millions (12-21 January), eight to the Inglis Sydney Classic (23-25 January) and 14 to the New Zealand Nationals (31 January-7 February).
GOLD COAST MAGIC MILLIONS
The Gold Coast will provide Eliza Park with the opportunity to showcase the first Magnus yearlings – four in total – including the first foal of Flemington Group winner Coniston Gem, a colt from a half sister to juvenile Group winners Doubting and Clinton, and a half brother to Group One winner Red Dazzler.
Champion Victorian stallion and sire of Black Cavaiar, Bel Esprit has two heading to the Coast, along with sons and daughters of More Than Ready, Excellent Art, Show a Heart, Royal Academy, Exceed And Excel, Haradasun, Host and Street Sense.
God’s Own and Written Tycoon both play a sizeable role in Eliza Park’s Classic eight with three by the former and a pair via the latter.
A graduate of this very sale in 2004, God’s Own will have a half brother to stakes winner Umaprince and a half brother to the exciting 2YO Bel Franc, while Written Tycoon boast a half sister to the multiple Group One placed Lords a Leaping. Magnus, Oratorio and Excellent Art are also represented in Sydney.
Yearlings by Group One winning Danehill stallion Fastnet Rock (sire of 2010 Newmarket Handicap winner and Eliza Park newcomer Wanted) highlight our trans-Tasman team with three of his colts and a filly making the journey.
Meanwhile, Kiwis will get the opportunity to inspect first crop fillies by another Danehill stallion in Shinzig, who ran several Group One placings across the pond (including a close second to Darci Brahma) prior to capturing the CF Orr Stakes-G1 in Melbourne.
Other NZ bound yearlings are a filly by Champion Australian Sire Encosta de Lago (from the multiple Group One winner Pace Invader), a colt and filly by Bernardini, plus youngsters by Commands, Exceed And Excel, Dehere, Elusive Quality and Librettist.
Pedigree details will be posted on Eliza Park’s sales pages shortly.
