Greta West’s Bucklee Farm has entered a
draft of 10 yearlings, and you have to wait
till the end to see the most impressive
on paper. Lot 340 is by Fastnet Rock son
Wanted from a Gr3- winning mare whose
second and third dam are also stakes
winners. Also looking good on paper is Lot
46, a colt by Amadeus Wolf, from a stakes-
placed half-sister to Gr1 winner Happiness,
dam of Zankel. Two yearlings here are by
Astronomer Royal including Lot 33 who is
a colt from a tough 5-time winning mare
whose half-brother won 14 races up to Gr2
level, while Lot 211 is a granddaughter
of dual Gr1 winner Electrique, whose
daughters have already left 3 stakes winners.
This filly might be next.
Eliza Park’s Gr1 winning 2YO Bushranger
has 2 yearlings here, including Lot 41, a
filly from a winning mare who boasts the
impressive sprinter Second Effort in her
pedigree. The other Bushranger is also a filly,
Lot 120, from a half-sister to Gr2 winner
Rain Dance Lady. This draft also contains
two fillies by Gr1 winner Shinzig; Lot 65 is
from good winner producer Cymbidium
from a solid NZ family and Lot 122, a half-
sister to 4 winners. Lot 124 is a colt by first
season sire Red Arrow, from a half-sister to
Ascot Gold Cup winner Zero Engagement,
and is a half-brother to two winners already.
Lot 221 is a filly that has some toughness in
her immediate family – her dam won 8 races,
and has left stakes-placed Delago’s Lad, and
descends from the family of USA Horse of
the Year All Along.
A draft of 13 yearlings from Fulmen Park
kicks off with Lot 6, a colt by Hard Spun from
stakes-placed 2YO Volkiss, dam of 5 winners
and a half-sister to Gr2 winner Fire House.
Also by Hard Spun is Lot 135 and Lot 350,
both from the same family full of Moonee
Valley winners. Lot 350 is a full-sister to
Beau Rada who ran fourth in this season’s
Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes. Lot 22 is
a Domesday filly from a young Redoute’s
Choice mare who descends from the same
amazing family of Champion Sire Storm
Bird. Lot 23 is a colt by Laser Hawk’s sire
Artie Schiller from a winning mare from the
family of Gr1 winner Fair Sir. Lot 55 is the
second foal of 4-time winner Commands a
Smile, by unbeaten Gr1 winner and now Gr1
sire Reset, from a family that has worked well
with Reset’s sire Zabeel producing Gr3 winner
Zabarra and stakes-placed Abeel Hostess.
Lot 62 has residual value as a half-sister to
Gr3 winner Bianmick from a strong European
family that includes two German Champion
3YOs. Sharing the same sire, Masterpiece, is Lot
306, from a winning mare whose first foal has
won twice this season. Freshman sire Reward
for Effort is represented by Lot 158, a filly from
a three-quarter sister to Gr1 VRC Oaks winner
Kensington Palace, whose dam is a Gr1 AJC
Sire’s Produce winner, so perhaps this filly has
the potential to emulate her sire and granddam
in precocity. Both out of winning Redoute’s
Choice mares are Lot 199 (a filly by Street Boss
from a strong American family) and Lot 358 (a
filly by Astronomer Royal from the family of
Gr1 winner St Covet).
