Two colts from the sale that produced Dothraki
Triple Crown Syndications’ principals Chris and Michael Ward were active at the recent Magic Millions National Yearling Sale at the Gold Coast, the very same sale that produced the boutique syndication company’s recent Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas winner, Dothraki.
Following countless hours of catalogue research and onsite inspections, two impressive individuals were knocked down to Triple Crown.
The first, a Medaglia d’Oro colt (Lot 1522) from the Group 2 performed mare Classic Rush. Prepared by Bowness Stud, this colt will be entrusted to Peter and Paul Snowden and trained out of their new Randwick base.
Sire of the exceptional American mare Rachel Alexandra, who won 13 of 19 starts (including 5 at Group 1 level) and over $3m in prizemoney, Medaglia d’Oro has also had a successful season so far with his first crop of 2YOs in Australia hitting the track and including the likes of Thalia, Nostradamis, Matilija, Shaumari etc.
Peter Snowden commented that he is an extremely athletic individual who he expects will furnish into a lovely race horse with a terrific temperament. This colt represents terrific value with shares now available for $8,990 incl. GST per 10%.
Lot 1563, also purchased by the Ward brothers for the Triple Crown stable, will hopefully continue the great success their owners have had racing the progeny of Snitzel.
From, Easy To Read, the half-sister to multiple Group 2 winner, Group 1placed Trusting, this colt was purchased from the Riversdale draft for $75,000.
Michael Ward commented “not only is there a lot to like about the make up of this colt, but a lot that reminds us of Triple Crown’s Group 2 winning mare Flying Snitzel”.
He has the highly desirable genetic influences of Snitzel, Encosta De Lago and Zabeel to match his strong, precocious physique and will also be trained by Peter and Paul Snowden.
