FIGHTING SUN PACKS A ONE-TWO PUNCH Lightly raced FIGHTING SUN three-year-old’s AEECEE DIAMOND & SEAFOOD SOURCE have completed a race night double for their sire at Racing.com Park on Thursday.
AEECEE DIAMOND delivered in Race 2 3Y MDN-SW (1200m) at just his second trip to the track. The Freedman Racing trained gelding was impressive after being caught wide the trip and coming from off the pace to land the prize.
“That was a competitive maiden so he looks like a horse that could continue to go through the grades now,” said Freedman.
The 10th named foal out of the Desert King mare, Silver Barbie, AEECEE DIAMOND was bred by Deballa and originally sold for $90,000 as a weanling at the 2017 Inglis Great Southern Sale. The youngster was then the subject of a successful pinhook when making $160,000 at the 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale to the bid of leading syndicator Spicer Thoroughbreds.
SEAFOOD SOURCE completed the deuce when beating the older horses in Race 3 F&M MDN (1400m) for Andrew Noblet & Daniel Stackhouse.
"She picked up good. I was confident I was going to get to them. She's got a lot of upside," said Stackhouse.
Another graduate from the 2018 Magic Millions January Yearling Sale, SEAFOOD SOURCE was bred by Sun Kingdom and sold for $80,000 to Aqua Trained Thoroughbreds.
FIGHTING SUN has recorded 29 individual winners and his progeny earnings exceed $1m for the 2019/20 season.
$200 will be donated to charity in aid of #bushfiresAustralia for every winner by a stallion on the Sun Stud roster for the month of January. ... See MoreSee Less
IF YOU DON’T MIND! Sun Bloodstock’s PEACE OF MIND has annihilated her rivals by 3.85L over the mile at Gosford on Thursday.
The Gerald Ryan trained four-year-old led at an even tempo and then extended beautifully at the 600m marker to put all challengers off the bit, then it was just a matter of how far in the straight as she was eased down on the line by Jay Ford.
The mare advances her record to 10:2-2-2 $57,705 and there looks to be plenty more to come this preparation.
A daughter of Bernardini, PEACE OF MIND is a half-sister to stakes winner Baby Corn, and was a $220,000 buy from the Davali Thoroughbreds draft at the 2017 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.
Sun Bloodstock is proud to contribute a 💰$1000 charity donation💰#bushfiresAustralia
A $1000 donation will be made for every Australian winner owned by Sun Bloostock and $200 for every winner by a stallion on the Sun Stud roster for the month of January. ... See MoreSee Less
MAGNUS MAKES $160k ON COAST It probably shouldn’t come as any great surprise that the purchasers of the MAGNUS colt at the Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale were Robbie Griffiths and bloodstock agent to the stars, Peter Ford. Both Robbie and 4-D won out with a bid of $160,000 to secure the son of Sun Stud’s gun stallion and he indeed looks a likely type. The colt was offered by Fernrigg Farm and continues the great run by MAGNUS in the sale ring from those astute buyers keen to secure another topline galloper like the Griffiths Racing bred, trained and part-owned, Halvorsen, winner of his last 3 starts including the Group Three Standish Handicap at Flemington on New Year’s Day. MAGNUS has nearly 350 winners (70% strike rate) with 21 stakes winners of over $40 million in progeny earnings. As for Robbie, he had at least 18 reasons to buy the MAGNUS colt on the Coast … he has trained 19 of the Magnus progeny for 18 winners! Good luck with this one Robbie. ... See MoreSee Less
