Pedigree Boosters

2 min read

In the build up to the Inglis Classic Sale at the Riverside Stables in Sydney, we will pick out three yearlings each day who have had substantial pedigree updates in the past couple of months.

Today we look at a half-brother to a boom Hong Kong galloper, and the siblings of a couple of recent Sydney metropolitan winners.

Lot 97 - Epaulette x More Glory - Offered by Bhima Thoroughbreds

In-form Hong Kong 3-year-old Tornado Twist (Denman) has delivered a nice boost to this colt's page on the eve of the sale, winning three races in succession, including an impressive win at Sha Tin last Saturday. He has won three from four starts now for John Size and looks highly promising.

The pedigree already had a fair bit of quality with the dam, More Glory (More Than Ready {USA}), a three-quarter sister to Group 3 winner Readytogorightnow (More Than Ready {USA}) and a half-sister to stakes-placed My Sweet Cookie (Hussonet {USA}).

Lot 249 - Star Witness x Defrock - Offered by Noogee Park

This colt's half brother Deprive (Denman) put together back-to-back wins in Sydney at the end of December, adding a bit of recent form to his pedigree page. That 4-year-old looks progressive and it wouldn't surprise to see him claim black-type next campaign.

The dam, Defrock (Canny Lad) is a full sister to G3 winner Blackball from a Darley/Woodlands family that includes the talented mare Hosannah (Octagonal).

Lot 328 - All Too Hard x Found The One - Offered by Aquis Farm

This colt's half-sister Sylvia's Mother (Snitzel) has been in excellent form over the past two months, reeling off a hat-trick of wins, culminating in an impressive victory at Randwick on Australia Day.

Their dam, Found the One (Bel Esprit) is a full sister to Group 1 winning mare Bel Mer, whose very handy All Too Hard gelding All Too Royal, has been on a summer spree of his own, winning three straight races, including a hard-fought victory at Rosehill last Saturday.
