Cracking Brazen Beau colt and regally bred Hellbent filly join the team!
We welcomed another pair of exciting additions to the Triple Crown team during yesterday’s session of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, the first of which came in the shape of a beautifully put together colt by exciting young sire BRAZEN BEAU.
This colt simply floats over the ground and hails from the same family as Group 1 Rosehill Guineas winner DEALER PRINCIPAL!
“A cracking colt who moves like the real good ones. He’s an ideal candidate to target next year’s Magic Millions race.” – Chris Ward.
The best son of sire sensation I Am Invincible and a dual Group 1 winner in his own right, Brazen Beau has made an excellent start to life at stud.
North Pacific came within a lip of providing him with the winner of last year’s stallion-making Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes, while Group 2 winner Pretty Brazen also boasts an elite level placing. Another of his son’s, General Beau, easily landed this season’s first 2YO race down in Melbourne and Brazen Beau is rapidly developing into a proven source of top juvenile talent.
A magnificent mover, this colt looks to have inherited his fair share of precociousness and is one to target at all the major two-year-old races.
He will head into training with Peter & Paul Snowden, the country’s leading trainers of 2YOs, and he is sure to prove popular at an affordable price.
Half-sister to a Grade 1-placed stallion joins the team
The Triple Crown team struck again late in the day and we are simply over the moon with the purchase of Lot 630 – a beautifully bred daughter from the first crop of exciting stallion HELLBENT.
This filly is a half-sister to Grade 1 runner-up CARACARO, who was recently snapped up for stallion duties by Kentucky stud Crestwood Farm
“A stunning filly who is a half-sister to a seriously good racehorse and the granddaughter of another elite racehorse. A beautifully put together filly with great residual value prospects.” – Chris Ward.
This filly simply has a pedigree to die for.
Her half-brother, CARACARO, finished runner-up in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes and was one of the favourites for the Kentucky Derby before injury ruled him out of the world-famous showpiece.
“Caracaro, from day one, was very talented and performed brilliantly at the highest level. I consider Caracaro to be a horse in another category and the best horse I have ever trained,” said his trainer Gustavo Delgado in an interview with US racing and breeding publication Bloodhorse.
If being a half-sister to a stallion wasn’t enough, this filly is also a granddaughter of Grade 2 winner SANTA CATARINA, who also placed at Grade 1 level on four occasions, including at the prestigious Breeders’ Cup World Championships as a 2YO.
HELLBENT, a sensational winner of the Group 1 William Reid Stakes, was chosen by Yarraman Park Stud to be the heir apparent to their all-conquering sire I AM INVINCIBLE.
Just like his Dad, Hellbent is throwing cracking types and we are delighted to have secured this filly for $60,000, a price we believe represents serious value given his progeny have sold up to $500,000.
Like our Brazen Beau colt, she too will be trained by the multiple Group 1-winning partnership of Peter & Paul Snowden, who have trained Triple Crown fillies MOSS TRIP, REELEM IN RUBY and MISSILE MANTRA to Group race success in recent seasons – all three of whom were purchased for $90,000 or less!
