A format change via a html email linked to our website happened a few years later. What followed from a combination of a no-nonsense news style that concentrates on the facts and word-of-mouth around the globe is one of the most read thoroughbred news columns in the world today. For the past 8-months in tandem with publishing our hard copy and digital magazines Breeding&Racing s team has worked on producing a new website one which would not only be well received aesthetically but that would also allow us to provide our readers and sponsors with access to new technologies more information and the benefits of enhanced search engine optimization. With almost 50 000 news item in our archive we had to completely overhaul our site to ensure that search engine spiders could find and trawl the extraordinary depths of what is quite possibly the best archive of its genre in the world. Change is seldom comfortable in this industry more so than most yet when we went live we were delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response to the changed format of the new website essentially allowing our readers to choose the stories they want to read along similar lines to every major news website in the world. Nonetheless we quickly reacted when a handful of our valued subscribers expressed a desire to retain the old format. While the news automatically defaults to a modern setting by clicking Expand Daily News Articles at the top of the Daily News home page readers can view the entire column in the old way to return to the new format they can click Only Show Daily News Headlines. The original galloping horse archive the horse has since retired used a basic MySQL search function that while accurate also allowed peripheral data to creep into the results. Circa February 2012 the archive search is incredibly accurate. It will instantly pull up in newest to oldest date sequence the most recent 100 items that relate EXACTLY to the word s searched. Even better though is the ability to drill down to articles that contain only a combination of selected words by separating them in the search with commas. For example if you re searching for Lonhro where Snowden & Rosehill are also mentioned in the same item type Lonhro Snowden Rosehill. Key words in the resulting found articles are highlighted in different colours. Over the coming months further new and exciting additions will be added to the site. Until then here s wishing owners and vendors all the best for the next round of yearling sales.

I t is generally accepted that there are three common denominators for best identifying potential stallions in Australia. They are sprinters they are fast and they generally win leading two-year-old races. Dr Robert (Bert) Inglis promoted fast sprinters success as sires during the 1980s and this has since been supported by the overwhelming success of stallions matching this criterion. The Golden Slipper is Australia s foremost test of two-year-old sprinting ability. Recent winner Stratum is proving an outstanding success at stud while the race s winners list of sires include the ill-fated Catbird Flying Spur Danzero Canny Lad Star Watch Marauding Rory s Jester Luskin Star Vain and a number of others dating all the way back to the inaugural winner Todman. The Blue Diamond is Melbourne s leading two-year-old race and its sire s winner list includes Champion stallion Redoute s Choice Bel Esprit and a number of others. As further evidence in 2012 four of the five leading Australian bred freshman yearling sires by their initial stud fee are the quality two-year-olds Sebring Reaan Murtajill and Real Saga 4 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM Exciting young sire Sebring while the fifth is the outstanding three-yearold sprinter Northern Meteor. Precocious types are considered by many of the leading Thoroughbred breeders as among the most potent stallions. This high level of potency allows them to dominate the gene pool and pass down their own raw speed and ability. However is there more to this speedy type of stallion s success than meets the eye Keeping in mind that the racing industry is regularly aligned with an obsession for twoyear-olds and speed at the apparent ignorance of soundness we analyze the breeding relationship between Thoroughbreds precocious speed and soundness. horses performance soundness remains relatively untested regardless. A STRONG CONSTITUTION FOR WINNING TWO-YEAR-OLD RACES By winning leading races as two-year-olds despite still being years from full maturity these precocious racehorses further strengthen the argument that they possess superior performance soundness . Again this is something that slower and often finer types of racehorses have not achieved with many remaining unraced as two-year-olds. Racing and winning as a two-year-old is an SOUNDNESS QUALITIES OF THE FAST RACEHORSE Thoroughbred breeding may be considered a form of natural selection as generally the fastest racehorses make the best stallions. These stallions have demonstrated that they possess speed and the will to win and without breaking down. One may suggest that once a racehorse attains a reasonable speed threshold the forces on its limbs thereafter compound and multiply with each further speed increment. This may indicate that Champion racehorses possess a unique type of functional or performance soundness which includes qualities that are not recognizable in a visual or text book way. A possible example may be an ability to withstand micro muscle tears that otherwise may lead to serious injury. In effect the fastest stallions have proven that they can withstand powerful levering forces or pressure through sustained pace. Lower performed or slower racehorses have not achieved this. Therefore even if technically correct and sound the slower Potential stallions are sprinters are fast and generally win leading two-year-old races... exam of soundness and does ideally require a good constitution with early maturity and good strong bone and further injury resistant tendons and muscles etc. Corresponding traits typically associated with maturity speedy two-year-olds and sprinting soundness include shorter cannons not overly long or sloped pasterns closed knees with flat bone and further matured joints shaped muscle type and a strong stride with superior coordination. Generally leading two-year-olds begin their education as late yearlings and progress steadily through a buildup of slower moderate and fast work trial at least once and then win or are competitive in a successive number of high pressure two-year-old races. Many have more than one preparation as a two-year-old. During the leading two-yearold races such as the Golden Slipper and Blue Diamond the pace is generally on throughout and it s no place for the fragile or mentally flawed racehorse. This mind over body focus on speed and the will to win may also help the Champion two-year-old over-ride and prevent the onset of injury. The rare Champion two-year-old that can go on and race over a number of seasons must also be proven sounder by the above reckoning. However with the high quality colt this generally is not feasible as its guaranteed shorter term breeding earnings far outweigh possible racetrack winnings. Even when breeding is of no interest to the owner the huge and ongoing offers from the leading studs prove extremely hard to resist. Shortly after the 2008 Golden Slipper the winning Sebring sold for a reported 30 million. The entire was purchased by Widden Stud and looks set to continue the unparalleled success of Slipper winners at stud. THE FAST ONES THAT BREAKDOWN Horseracing trainers are often quoted with comments such as It s the good ones that always breakdown and He could not go fast enough to hurt himself . The majority of Champions eventually break down and the hit list reads like a who s who of Australian racing including Kingston Town Might and Power Placid Ark Northerly Saintly etc. They do however first prove themselves with successful racing careers and one may question just how many potential champions break down before even racing due to a lack of ability to withstand the forces of their own extreme levering The speedy Bel Esprit won a Blue Diamond and has produced speed 5 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM BREAKING THE SOUND BARRIER (CONT) Barrel turns would impact long sloping pasterns machine Black Caviar. The Champion mare reputably possesses a not so perfect forelimb set but regardless both sire and offspring have already proven racetrack successful and to an extent performance sound at break-neck speeds. SELECTIVE BREEDING DOES IT PRODUCE NEGATIVE OR VARIED TRAITS One has to expect that with selective breeding (such as breeding for speed) the results will provide positive negative and varied outcomes. The poor reputation of the related inbreeding considered there may be a human tendency to rate any unexpected results of the less deleterious selective breeding as negative outcomes. In reality an outcome may at times only be a variation on the original. Without doubt certain bloodlines of Thoroughbreds possess serious soundness issues such as a number of the Raise a Native lines. There is no argument that breeders do need to consider these specific issues. However problems with specific pedigree lines also apply to breeds outside of the Thoroughbred although this may not be as well documented or publicised. With the pure blood Thoroughbred the negative is regularly referred to as the so-called fragile limbs. However are the refined limbs a genuine flaw or to a greater extent a standard variation that should be expected with selective breeding by strength orientations. The Quarter Horse is certainly a tough and ready breed and on paper appears sounder than the Thoroughbred. However considering the intended purposes of each a closer analysis may suggest that the soundness-related variations of the breeds are just that variations. As an example let s consider the long and sloping pasterns of the Thoroughbred that western folk often refer to as weak and a serious flaw. Typical Quarter horse pasterns are further upright shorter and thicker by comparison. As well as adding short term power the slightly upright angle and shorter length enables the fetlocks to stay up and off the hard and unforgiving western surface particularly when getting down in the dirt during tight spins and turns around barrels etc. The Thoroughbred s pasterns of extra length and slope certainly leave it prone to injury under western working horse conditions however in contrast during refined work they also further cushion the stride and joints add spring to jumping and stride length and endurance to galloping. Another obvious trait that would also leave the Quarter Horse prone to injury under Thoroughbred racing conditions is its powerful and speedy muscle type which lacks sustained endurance capabilities leaving it open to micro muscle tears and soreness over further distances. Significantly the Thoroughbred possesses a muscle type that is capable of sustaining speed for increased durations. These variations are typical of a number of further traits from each breed. It s also clear that the Thoroughbred s refinement is not ideally suited to the high intensity strength based disciplines of western similarly the Quarter Horse is not ideally suited to the long extended gallops of Thoroughbred horseracing. Furthermore outside racing the Thoroughbred has an excellent reputation as a Sport Horse. This requires varied athletic skills such as gallops and jumping at speed and refined movement. Many breeds partake in these disciplines including the Warmblood Arabian Anglo Arabian Quarab and occasionally Quarter Horses etc. In the company of these highly respected breeds the Thoroughbred despite being placed away from its purpose bred discipline which is generally racing is not associated with unsoundness all being equal. For breeds outside of the Thoroughbred when assessing horses for breeding potential their type appearance and pedigree take a far greater relevance. The US western halter breed may be an extreme example and despite the individuals that appear as correct and with ample apparent prime moving strength and athleticism they are generally bred to look and may lack actual performance soundness . Not surprisingly they are rarely considered as serious riding horses being prone to breakdown etc. Therefore the Thoroughbred that is selected for breeding is much more likely to have proved performance sound . Its racetrack success will be highly transparent and can be clearly rated by statistics often over a period of time against varied class horses and over varied conditions distances and tracks. Consider that the greater majority of Thoroughbreds are trained professionally have been purpose-bred for centuries exist in large numbers and will require a degree of natural galloping ability to be successful. This indicates that for the Thoroughbred racing stallion to be considered commercially viable it must first measure up to a higher objective performance standard than those from other breeds. All considered a strong argument may be made for the Thoroughbred as not only being the fastest but the soundest breed for its intended purpose and that purpose is galloping at sustained speed over middle distances . MONEY TALKS There is no doubt that being proven as a fast and strong two-year-old does not automatically mean a racehorse possesses superior soundness qualities to match. Flaws such as offset knees and toeing in or out are inheritable and are less preferred in any breeding program including Thoroughbreds. However leading two-yearold racehorses have been tested as sound at the highest intensity and the question may not be whether proven two-year-old speed and soundness correlate in a positive manner but rather to what extent. Leading Australian studs such as Arrowfield and Widden are prepared to pay huge amounts for Champion two-yearolds while in contrast many leading staying types with extended careers as older horses are not considered as serious commercial stallion prospects. For the precocious sprinter that does not make an outstanding sire they can prove valuable bread and butter sires for trainers and owners looking for a lower risk investment. Their value lies in their ability to sire speedy sound and early like-types with very good winners-to-runners ratios. Nature does have a funny way of obtaining what often remain as hidden benefits from so-called flaws and Australia is fast gaining a reputation for producing the world s fastest sprinters h Ross Brunt Analyst of Racehorse Conformation & Biomechanics Horsegears.com THOROUGHBRED VERSES THE QUARTER HORSE Talk about the Thoroughbred lacking soundness often emulates from individuals involved in the hardy western horse disciplines who may not appreciate the benefits of the Thoroughbred refinement that also encourages stride extension and expression. This is in contrast to the typical western Quarter Horse type that is designed for a compact low profile stride that is dominated 6 BREEDING BY PERFORMANCE OR APPEARANCE Another factor that separates the Thoroughbred from most other breeds is that its stallions are initially judged for their breeding potential predominately based on racetrack ability. Broodmares will also be valued significantly higher if they have performance on the board. Although a wellbred broodmare is advantaged many on the fringe and almost to the exclusion of type will not be bred due to a lack of performance.

AS SHE GOES T here s something strange happening in the global thoroughbred world. The US and European economies are if not on their knees in relatively unchartered waters and yet their respective bloodstock sales are fairly zooming along. Notwithstanding that New Zealand s economy has not been cushioned as much from the global financial crisis as Australia s down under has generally fared better than our northern counterparts. Which is why it s so strange that after the opening three majors in Australia and New Zealand the best way to sum it up is that it s steady as she goes . If there s any consolation it s that the market seems to have bottomed and so long as production costs remain steady the ship should get back onto an even keel as early as next year. over the next couple of days so the figures will hopefully rise. The average of 118 952 was down 6.5% on 2011 but the median of 100 000 was up 5.3%. The clearance rate remained identical at 75%. Former Australian Champion Sire Redoute s Choice held sway with Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse paying top price of 450 000 for a colt by the flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion. The youngster is the second foal of dual stakes-winning eight-year-old General Nediyim mare I Got Chills. New Segenhoe Stud principal Kevin Maloney shelled out the same amount for another colt by Redoute s Choice the eighth foal out of winning 13-year-old Unbridled s Song mare Miss Jakeo. He was consigned by Gerry Harvey s Baramul Stud. Major overseas buyer The Hong Kong Jockey Club paid 350 00 for a colt by former Australian champion first season sire Exceed And Excel who is enjoying a purple patch of form with his offspring. This half-brother to No Looking Back is the second foal out of dual stakes-winning 8-year-old Dehere mare Mirror Mirror and was consigned by Strawberry Hill Stud. On Day-2 Coolmore representative Demi O Byrne and bloodstock agent James Bester paid top price of 960 000 for a colt by former Australian Champion second season Sire and multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred stallion Fastnet Rock. He is the first foal of dual-winning 7-year-old Bite The Bullet mare Rose of Cimmaron. Connections of the colt declared He has plenty of quality and we really wanted to buy him. We knew there were plenty of people interested in him and we would have to do a bit of fighting to get him. Other big buyers were Gai Waterhouse who paid 600 000 for a filly by Vinery Stud shuttler More Than Ready. Segenhoe Stud followed her lead parting with 470 000 for a More Than Ready colt. On day three it was back to Redoute s Choice heading affairs with Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan winning out at 750 000 for a colt the eighth out of stakes-winning 15-year-old Marauding mare Cloister. He is a full brother to dual Gr1-winning and seven time Gr1-placed racemare Melito. After the fall of hammer Ryan commented There is a lot to like about him. He is very athletic and a good mover. Waterhouse was active again when spending 680 000 to secure a colt by More Than Ready. He is the third foal out of Gr1winning and five time Gr1-placed 10-year-old Danehill mare Aqua D Amore one of the best females in training at her peak.

The colt is the second foal out of five time-winning 12-year-old Hennessy mare Valda Merceda. Prices dipped a little on the last day of Book 1 however generally held their own sufficiently for the sale to end with vendors and buyers about even. Overall during the initial sessions 1-4 at Magic Millions 492 yearlings sold for 62 570 000 (down 1.7% on last year s 515 sold for 63 669 000). However the 127 125 average was up 2.9% (last year 123 629) and the 100 000 median was up 11.1% (last year 90 000). The clearance rate also improved to 84.4% (last year 83%). Magic Millions managing director Vin Cox commented We re thrilled with the figures. The story of the sale is the clearance and the median price. The clearance rate is outstanding and this will grow over the next day or so. And the average price has increased on last year s figures - so all-in-all we re very happy. Demand on the quality lots was strong and many vendors returned some positive results. Young bloodstock agent James Harron s contribution to the sale was highly evident and the relationship he has forged with Gai Waterhouse should pay some plum dividends in the next few years for his supporters. INGLIS CLASSIC Following another exceptional year of on-track performances by Classic graduates expectations were reasonably high for this Inglis sale that has earned a reputation for athletic types. The opening day was headed by the 100 000 outlaid for a Fastnet Rock filly from 7-year-old US-bred Elusive Quality mare Polite (a granddaughter of influential matron Fanfreluche whose many well-known descendants include champion sires Encosta de Lago and Flying Spur). The top bid was shared when Denise Martin s Star Thoroughbreds also paid 100 000 for a colt by Patinack Farm stallion Beautiful Crown (the 5th foal out of 13-yearold Octagonal mare Pretty Special) consigned by Bowness Stud as agent. The colt (to be trained in Sydney by Gai Waterhouse) is a halfbrother to recent stakes-winner Kontiki Park. When stumps were drawn on Day-1 110 yearlings had been sold for 3 494 727 (down 3.1% on last year s 104 sold for 3 608 000). The average of 31 770 was down 8.4% (last year 34 692) and the median of 27 500 was down 8.3% (last year 30 000). The clearance rate was 79% (last year 79%). Although marginally off the pace Inglis managing director Mark Webster commented Today s figures are slightly down on those recorded for this session 12 months ago but I do congratulate our vendors for meeting the current market. Classic has produced 25 Gr1winners in the last 10 years an amazing feat for a sale that averages just 30 000 and we expect more again from this year s selection. As if on cue Day-2 started with some higher prices when Les Bridge and Kim Harding paid top price of 120 000 for a filly by shuttler Tale Of The Cat. Other high bids that day were by Lockyer Thoroughbreds and Albert Stapleford the former parting with 110 000 for the Choisir-Tagine filly and the later spending the same price for the aptly pedigreed Magic Albert-Benevolent colt. Others to crack the 100 000 mark were Aquanita Racing s purchase of the SnitzelBanishing colt and BC3 Thoroughbreds Ready s Image-Topsinga colt. On Day-3 Mauro Poletti paid top price of 140 000 for a colt by former 6-time Chilean Champion Sire Hussonet during the closing. The colt is the 6th foal out of unraced 11-year-old Fraar mare Monte Rosa who is a full-sister to Gr1-winner and four times Gr1-placed Nina Haraka. 105 000 won the bidding duel on two occasions a Dubawi filly out of Greta s Yarn (Inglis as agent) and the Robbie Laing-purchased Charge Forward-Lady Of Choice colt. NZ BLOODSTOCK PREMIER Coupled with the outstanding year enjoyed by New Zealand-breds a subdued local dollar and off the back of a strong 2011 Premier Sale at Karaka 2012 s renewal promised plenty. Although it took until Day-2 for the sale to really find its feet Day-1 also yielded plenty of highlights headed by Te Akau Stud s David Ellis paying top price of NZ 740 000 for a filly by Cambridge Stud s Gr1-winning shuttler Stravinsky.

Selling felt solid right throughout the 3 days with a good number of international buyers staying on (after last week s Premier Sale) to compete with the locals. With Magic Millions Perth Tasmania and Adelaide still to come in addition to Inglis Premier and Easter sales the jury could be said to still be out yet there is a sense that the worst is over.

Like the great sire he was also a minor winner at 2. Astronomer Royal trained on at 4 to pick up a Gr3 in Ireland and ran a decent fourth in the Gr1 July Cup (to Marchand d Or). His dam a Listed winner is a half-sister to Gr1 Florida Derby winner Vicar and she has also left a Gr2 winner. Rated 121 at his peak expect the foals of this Gr1 winner to improve with age. AUTHORIZED (IRE) (Montjeu-Funsie by Saumarez) Stood 2009 at Darley NSW A triple Gr1 winner by Montjeu Authorized reflects the desire by Australian breeders to look for more than just sprinters. That said Authorized was precocious enough to win a Gr1 at 2 before going on to win The (English) Derby at 3 as well as beating Dylan Thomas in the Gr1 Juddmonte International. From a strong staying European family Authorized served a book in excess of 100 mares in his first season and should provide buyers with good opportunities. His first crop in Europe includes several 2YO winners so Authorized is kicking goals already. DUKE OF MARMALADE (IRE) (Danehill-Love me True by Kingmambo) Stood 2009 at Coolmore Australia NSW A son of Danehill that won at 2 Duke of Marmalade was unfortunate to miss out on a Gr1 at 3. He gained five Gr1 placings that season before really hitting his straps at 4. In a wonderful season Duke of Marmalade won 5 Gr1 races as a 4YO including the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth S. His sire Danehill needs no introduction and his stakes placed dam is by top sire Kingmambo. He is from a marvelous stallion making family that of AP Indy and a few that are familiar to local buyers including Statue of Liberty Bite the Bullet and Foxhound. Expect Coolmore to have a draft of excellent yearlings by this horse at the sales this year. EXCEEDINGLY GOOD (AUS) (Exceed and Excel-Common Smytzer by Snippets) Stood 2009 at Secret Hill T breds NSW By Exceed and Excel who has been in the news lately as the sire of Gr1 2YO Helmet Exceedingly Good was also a precocious 2YO.

His dual Gr3 winning half-brother Better Be the One is kicking goals in Singapore at the moment recently 2nd at Gr1 level to international champion Rocket Man. Exceedingly Good is out of a stakes placed 2YO city winner by Snippets. He has the pedigree and race record to produce precocious youngsters that should get up and run early for buyers. HENRYTHENAVIGATOR (USA) KAPHERO (AUS) (Kingmambo-Sequoyah by Sadler s Wells) Stood 2009 at Coolmore Australia NSW If you can get past this horse s name you ll find a good style of a horse with a race record that looks well suited to Australian conditions. A Gr2 winner in England at 2 Henrythenavigator improved at 3 to win 4 Gr1 races including the English and Irish 2000 Guineas both over a mile. All up he won 6 races one more than his famous sire Kingmambo. Kingmambo won sire championships in 2 nations (France and Japan) and was third on the USA general sires list as well. His 80 stakes winners 22 at Gr1 level include local Gr1 winners Tawqeet and Our Kingdom of Fife. As you would expect from a Coolmore stallion Henry comes from a strong family full of stakes winners. His dam is a 2YO Gr1 winner by Sadler s Wells. (Danzero-Kapchat by Centaine) Stood 2009 at Swettenham Stud VIC A son of Golden Slipper winner Danzero and Gr1 winner Kapchat who is by champion broodmare sire Centaine Kaphero lived up to his breeding with a Listed win at 2. He followed this with another 9 wins including a Gr3 over 1000m and a good third in the Gr1 Manikato Stakes. Danzero has been a consistent son of Danehill with six Gr1 winners and Kaphero is his first son to go to stud. His stock are tough and suit Australian racing conditions. Covering nearly 100 mares in his first season Kaphero is a locally bred and locally raced sprinter. The combination of that along with his quality pedigree means that Kaphero s progeny should attract all buyers. 22 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM MURTAJILL (AUS) (Rock of Gibraltar-Skating by At Talaq) Stood 2009 at Patinack Farm NSW A half-brother to Bradbury s Luck the sire of WA Gr1 Railway winner Luckygray Murtajill is one of seven stakes horses from dual Gr1 winner Skating.

His owners took the ambitious route towards England where he ran 4th in the race made famous by his grandsire Danehill (Gr1 Haydock Sprint Cup). By Redoute s Choice this big strapping horse is out of a Vain mare from a solid Australian family. He covered nearly 100 mares in his first season and should be well supported by his stud.

He is a lovely type so get in quick before they show his precocious ability and become too expensive. NEW APPROACH (IRE) (Galileo-Park Express by Ahonoora) Stood 2009 at Darley VIC New Approach has the traditional perfect race record. Racing in England and Ireland New Approach was a dual Gr1 winner at 2 then he trained on to win a trio of Gr1s at 3 including The (English) Derby. His sire Galileo has been headlining lately with his star Frankel recently crowned Horse of the Year in Europe and his Australian bred daughter Igugu gaining recognition as South Africa s Horse of the Year. New Approach is one of 26 Gr1 winners for his dual Derby winning sire. New Approach is one of three stakes winners for his dam champion 2YO and 3YO filly Park Express. This is one heck of a racehorse and odds are good that one of his foals will be just as good. NORTHERN METEOR (AUS) (Encosta de Lago-Explosive by Fappiano) Stood 2009 at Widden Stud Australia P L NSW The most popular first season sire Northern Meteor covered 198 mares in his first season. What made him so popular His race record a win in the stallion making Gr1 Coolmore Classic his track record in a Listed race over 1200m and a Gr1 second to world champion sprinter Takeover Target. Or perhaps his top class pedigree. By Encosta de Lago whose best sons are about to emerge as stallions from stakes placed Explosive dam of three stakes winners. Northern Meteor is a local Gr1 sprinter by one of the best sires at stud in Australia. He ll have plenty of yearlings to pick from and if they look anything like him they are bound to be popular.

Hussonet has a bunch of sons at stud including the promising Husson that has started his career in the perfect fashion with a 2YO stakes winner from his first runner. Reaan s pedigree oozes quality as his dam is by Danehill and his second dam by top broodmare sire Kaapstad. Not only that but these names should just say 2YO to everyone. Reaan s family suggests that his stock will be more than just 2YOs as there are plenty of stakes winners in his female line that have trained on to greater things as they age including his own dam who won the Gr2 Moonee Valley Oaks. Don t overlook them. 23 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM MELBOURNE PREMIER SALE FEB 27 - MAR 1 2012 FRESHMAN YEARLING SIRES (SERVED 50 MARES 2009) REAL SAGA (AUS) (Tale of the Cat-Windy Kate by Air Express) Stood 2009 at Glenlogan Park QLD A flying 2YO that won 4 races at 2 including the Gr2 Todman beating Golden Slipper winner Phelan Ready.

SEBRING (AUS) (More than Ready-Purespeed by Flying Spur) Stood 2009 at Widden Stud Australia P L NSW Sebring is a dual 2YO Gr1 winner standing at the home of fellow Golden Slipper winners Todman Vain Marscay and Stratum. Sebring has plenty to live up to but breeders voted in his favour sending him 190 mares in his first season. And why wouldn t they The record of Golden Slipper winners at stud is too good to be ignored. Sebring narrowly missed the Gr1 2YO treble he won the Slipper the Sires Produce and was second to Samantha Miss in the Champagne. His dam Purespeed is by Golden Slipper winner Flying Spur and she has already left another stakes winner Gr2 winner Pureness. Sebring is by More than Ready the American shuttler that has 2 Golden Slipper winners to his name. SHARKBITE (AUS) (Redoute s Choice-Back Pass by Quest for Fame). Stood 2009 at Eliza Park VIC A son of Redoute s Choice Sharkbite won five races including 2 at 2 and a Listed race at 4. He also ran second to Haradasun and third to Wonderful World on different occasions at 3. Redoute s Choice is emerging as a sire of sires with the likes of Not a Single Doubt and more is yet to come. Sharkbite might only be a Listed winner but so was Not a Single Doubt and look how he is going Sharkbite is also from a standout family. His second dam is a half-sister to super broodmare Hasili who has left 7 stakeswinners 5 at Gr1 level. One of her foals is top sire Dansili.

He looked the part back in 2009 but now he is properly cemented as a successful sire. Sire of 53 stakes winners Street Cry has left Gr1 horses all over the world including Zenyatta Shocking Whobegotyou and Street Sense. Street Boss needs to be included on this list as he won two Gr1 races in America over 1200m and 1400m and ran 3rd in the Breeders Cup Sprint. From a stakes placed mare Street Boss is from a running family and buyers will be looking to see if his stock will run too. TEOFILO (IRE) (Galileo-Speirbhean by Danehill) Stood 2009 at Darley NSW Champion 2YO colt of Europe in 2006 Teofilo retired to stud unbeaten in five starts. Four of his five wins were at stakes level including two Gr1 events one of which is England s version of the Slipper the Dewhurst Stakes. By Galileo his race record would suggest that he is an atypical son of the champion sire being more precocious that is normally expected. This could be a good thing with early speed and ability much prized in this part of the world. Teofilo comes from a strong family his dam is a Listed winner over a mile while his third dam was the Champion 3YO filly in Canada. There are plenty of stakes winners in this family and many of them suggest that they improve with time.

He has a pedigree full of top 2YO performers including his half-sister who was a Gr1 winner at 2. His sire Cherokee Run won 5 races at 2 (13 in total including a Breeders Cup Sprint). His damsire is sprint king Mr Prospector. So it s no surprise to look at the race record of War Pass and find that he excelled as a 2YO. Four wins at 2 two at Gr1 level including the Breeders Cup Juvenile. Crowned Champion 2YO colt in the USA War Pass wasn t a one season wonder picking up another win later in his career. He has the support of one of Australia s best studs (and broodmares) and this should make his yearlings attractive to buyers who want a jump and run horse with plenty of speed. 24 FOR DAILY INDUSTRY NEWS UPDATES VISIT WWW.BREEDINGRACING.COM INGLIS MELBOURNE PREMIER FEB 27 MAR 1 VENDOR PEOFILES BOMBORA DOWNS The popular food claim No artificial colours or preservatives is reflected in the adherence by Christoph Bruechert and his dedicated team to biodynamic farming principles.

Having consigned a 100 000 colt in 2010 out of their top producer Cubicle (dam of multiple stakes-winning Go Cart) they clearly know what s required to get buyers attention. A half-brother to Go Cart (Lot 161) is by Hussonet s cracking Gr1 Blue Diamond-winning son Reaan whose first crop are yearlings from the family of Bullet Sprinter and leading sire Testa Rossa and commands attention. Balcrest kick-starts their sale with Lot 146 a colt by Nureyev s US Gr1 mile-winning son Good Journey and established sire with an Australian Gr1 winner on his CV. Stakes-placed dam Chantella has already produced 2 winners from her only 3 runners with her other runner placed as a 2YO last season including the highly promising Alpha Man a strong winner of 2 of his last 3 city starts in Metro Adelaide this campaign. With Lot 243 Balcrest has again tested the waters with a freshman yearling sire this time in the shape of Kaphero an exceptionally fast and precocious Danzero son whose victories included the Magic Millions Adelaide 2YO Classic.

Jet Spur continues to impress and Lot 178 from the immediate family of imposing UK filly Rebecca Sharp looks a nice type on paper particularly as an August foal. Although the remainder of the draft contains other appealing types the real stand-out and a possible sale topper is the Redoute s Choice colt out of Shapira. A first foal his dam is a Chilean-bred Gr1-winning daughter of Hussonet. The family is as thick as treacle with Gr1 performers and if his conformation is up to his pedigree this colt won t want for a bevy of inspectors. COMMERCIAL THOROUGHBREDS SA Progressive group Commercial Thoroughbreds who last year took on Gr2-winning stallion Scaredee Cat (Tale Of The Cat-Last Lady by Centaine) from Waikato Stud in New Zealand bring a baker s dozen to Adelaide in 2012. It s a draft chock full of quality and enjoys an early start courtesy of Lot 17 a colt by Choisir out of a Royal Academy daughter of Melbourne stakes-winner Marwell Lady herself dam of three individual stakesperformers including speedy juvenile Jestarella Boy. If differentiation is the key then Commercial Thoroughbreds SA has two yearlings that stand out from the crowd the only Encosta de Lago and Redoute s Choice in the sale. The first is Lot 109 an Encosta filly out of an Irish-bred daughter of Danehill Dancer. Her dam Pipalong was Europe s Champion older mare whose 10 wins included the Gr1 Haydock Cup Sprint plus the Gr3 Newmarket Palace House Stakes over 1000m in track record time. Her residual value alone makes her one to inspect. Another filly with a slick pedigree is Lot 133. Out of a three quartersister to Champion 2YO Rory s Jester she is by Ferocity a proven sire-son of Danehill s very fast Lion Hunter. She is followed very next lot by a colt with a lovely pedigree. By Redoute s Choice boom freshman Mutaawajid his multiple-winning dam is a half-sister to Permai dam of Gr1-performed Permaiscuous from the very smart Tynia family.

First cab off the rank is a BOBS-eligible Magic Albert colt out of a half-sister to Gr1 VRC Sires Produce runner-up Big Poppa Pump and stakes-placed Flying Chance. Kaphero is likely to prove popular with buyers and Kiah Glenn has two in their draft including a filly out of Celtic Swing mare Shell I Swing who placed 4th in the Listed VATC Debutante Stake and won four races to 1100m. With good black type below on the page it s a pedigree that smacks of precocious speed. One to watch closely as is the other Kaphero a colt (Lot 369) whose Fkying Spur dam won over 1200m and whose only foal to race thus far has won twice over sprint trips and placed twice in the city.

Few Magic Millions Adelaide graduates can compare with brilliant quadruple Gr1-winner Divine Madonna and Lot 201 a colt out of her half-sister Holy Connection by Hussonet s Chilean-bred Gr1 winner Host could be one out of the box. Lot 238 has a sex-balanced cross of Danzig. By the very good Emirates Park sire Danewin his dam won three to 1400m. Meanwhile recent form is good form and Lot 273 is an Akhadan half-brother to Gr3-placed five-time winner Imacruiser. Selling in Kiah Glenn s own right is Lot 283 a Gonski colt whose Zeditave dam is a half-sister to a trio of stakes-performers among them Gr3 winners Red Colossus and Nediym s Glow both of which are also Gr2-placed.

The former is a half-sister to stakes-performed Happy Angel while the latter is from the family of Gr1 heroine St. Clemens Belle. Little Hills Stud has got right behind the freshman sire with a filly and two colts consigned by Reaan of their nine-strong draft. The first of them is a filly (Lot 103) the first foal of Gr2 runner-up Youthful High. Of the colts Lot 118 is out of a Strategic half-sister to brilliantly fast stakes-winning track record breaker Fappiano s Son while Lot 359 is a half-brother to three winners including multiple metropolitan-winning stakes-placed Princess Joy from a very strong black-type family. It s an early start though for Little Hills with their early-foaled Elvstroem colt selling as Lot 5. His city-winning dam (who has two recent city winners to her credit) is out of Gr1-placed Gr2 winner Mystic Chantry. Magic Albert has had another highly successful season and Lot 119 should attract a steady stream of visitors. The colt is out of an unraced Hussonet daughter of good producer and stakes-winner Western Zip. There are few better bred stallions in the world than Bianconi (Danzig-Fall Aspen) and Lot 135 is out of a mare who has already produced three individual winners including a winner of four plus Hong Kong performer True Valour. She is a filly as is another female in this draft with a most appealing pedigree. Lot 153 is by Starcraft one of the most promising young sires in the country and she s an August foal to boot with plenty of black type on the page. In a game where speed is an essential Lot 348 offers plenty. By smart 2YO Face Value (Red Ransom) he is out of a 3-time winning daughter of speed merchant Umatilla. LITTLE HILLS STUD Notwithstanding Hussonet s obvious ability as a top sire his addition the stallion ranks in Australia is now being felt as an outcross for mares and also via his local and imported sons.

Feeding these young horses is a challenge because nutrients must be supplied to cater for both growth and exercise. Additionally little research has been done to quantify the nutrient requirements of horses this age particularly during the transition period from untrained yearling to intensely exercised two-year-old. Ideally the yearling Thoroughbred should have been on a sound nutritional program from birth giving it the best opportunity to develop a strong skeleton able to withstand the rigors of training. If purchased at a yearling sale the animal will likely have been on a high plane of nutrition for several months so it is important to taper off the energy intake if the yearling is going to be turned out for some time before pre-training. Yearlings fresh from the sales can be maintained on good quality forage (1-1.5% of body weight) including good pasture and a feed formulated for breeding and growing horses. If the yearling is a good-doer then cutting back the grain concentrate and feeding a low intake concentrated balancer is a good approach to keep the kilos down while still providing essential nutrition. FEEDING PROGRAMS FOR TWO-YEAR-OLDS Once the yearling has entered the training environment a real concern for trainers is how differently to feed rising two-year-olds compared with older horses in the stable. A typical feeding program for an adult racehorse in training consists of good quality forage (grass and or lucerne hay chaff pasture turn out if available) grain commercial concentrate and supplements if necessary. Forage must be fed at a minimum of 1% body weight per day that is a minimum of about 4-5kg hay per day. The energy and majority of the nutrients are provided by grain and or a commercial grain concentrate. Commercial concentrate feeds are usually fully fortified to contain all the energy protein minerals and vitamins the horse needs provided it is fed at the recommended amount (usually about 4-8kg per day) and is fed alongside good quality forage. Some commercial racing feeds are formulated so that you can add your own grain (oats barley maize) to top up the energy intake. Rising two-year-olds will require more protein calcium phosphorus and trace minerals than mature horses because they are growing as well as working. If we look at an example an adult Thoroughbred in race training and his rising two-year-old stable mate in moderate work. Both horses are fed 5kg of high quality grass lucerne mixed hay and a 13.0% protein commercial grain mix that supplies 13 MJ DE kg. The adult racehorse would require 6 kg of grain per day to meet its energy requirement while the two-year-old requires 5 kg day. Figure 2 shows how well these rations meet the nutrient requirements of the two types of horses. Figure 2 Nutrients supplied from a ration consisting of good quality grass hay () and a commercial grain mix ( ) for an adult racehorse (left) and nutrients supplied from a ration consisting of good quality grass hay () and a commercial grain mix ( ) for a rising two year-old in moderate work (right) Although the hay and grain are not excessively high in protein or minerals the adult racehorse s ration supplies more protein lysine calcium and phosphorus than needed because of the high level of intake required to meet the racehorse s energy requirement. A ration using the same hay and grain mix also meets the nutrient requirements of the two-year-old in moderate work. Again a fairly high level of intake provides adequate nutrients from feedstuffs containing fairly low concentrations of protein and minerals. The bottom line from this comparison is that most rations fed to adult racehorses contain adequate protein calcium and phosphorus for rising two-year-olds. If energy intake must be restricted in a rising two-year-old (if they re a gooddoer for example) higher levels of fortification may be needed. In these cases topping up the diet with a ration balancer would be appropriate. In conclusion the nutrient requirements of the rising two-year-old fall between the growing weanling yearling and the adult performance horse. If the rising two-year-old is in training feeds that are typically formulated for adult performance horses are appropriate because the elevated level of feed intake required to meet the energy required for exercise will provide the extra protein and minerals needed for growth.
