A flying 9.81 second sectional by a son of ill-fated stallion Hinchinbrook was the highlight of the first session of breeze-ups for next month's Magic Millions 2YO in Training Sale on Thursday.

Twenty-four horses went through their paces at Warwick Farm and it was the Melanie O'Gorman prepared gelding by Hinchinbrook out of La Valeta (NZ) who shone the brightest, powering though the final 200m in 9.81 seconds.

Lot 171 (Arlington {Aus} - Tony Package) went 10.23s. while a colt by Star Witness out of the American mare Tragic Moment (USA) being offered by Widden ran 10.25s

Other horses of note were the colt by Denman (Aus) out of She Can Move, and a colt by Rothesay (Aus) out of Night At The Opera.

The Can She Move (Canny Lad {Aus}) colt is being offered by Woodpark Stud and clocked 10.34s, while the colt out of Night At The Opera (Good Journey {USA}), from Highlands Racing and Bloodstock, recorded a time of 10.52s.
