Always knew Shinzig would be a good stallion! OK, we’re only joking about our ‘vision’, but the performance of Psychic Mick at Morphettville certainly augurs well for the future of the Danehill Group One winner.
After all, this was Shinzig’s first runner … and his first winner – and what a winner at Breednet’s Mark Smith points out ...

Looking the consummate professional despite making his first race start, Physic Mick tracked the early speed before holding on strongly to win Saturday’s Distinctive Homes Plate (1000m) at Morphettville to credit Eliza Park Stud's young stallion Shinzig with his first winner.
Ridden by Mark Pegus for Morphettville-based trainer Dan Clarken, Physic Mick (Shinzig x Super Fund (Bianconi) defeated Clearwater Bay by a half-neck with Miss Intensus (Hard Spun) two and a quarter lengths back in third.
A bargain $10,000 purchase by part-owner Michael Duffield at last years Adelaide Magic Millions Yearling Sale, Physic Mick is the second foal of the Melbourne winning Bianconi (USA) mare Super Fund.
Eliza Park Stud will offer a half-sister to Physic Mick by Bel Esprit at the upcoming Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling sale.
Physic Mick is the first runner for the CF Orr Stakes (G1) winner Shinzig, a full brother to Strada.
A son of Danehill out of the Coolmore Classic winner Shindig (Straight Strike), Shinzig covered 88 mares last year at a fee of $8,800.
Remarkably, Shinzig (below) has just one yearling on offer at both the Inglis Classic Yearling sale and Inglis Premier Yearling sale, while he has four at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling sale.
