In Europe, Coolmore’s Excelebration is proving to be a sire of classy sprinter-milers. His first-crop statistics are equal to or better than leading Australian second-season sires FOXWEDGE and SO YOU THINK.
We were delighted with the debut of two young fillies, Reality Show and Lady of Flanders, at Sale yesterday.
We have been following the progress of the older half-sister to our EXCELEBRATION colt out of MAGITA.
At Sale on Thursday, the win of Distant Sky at his 16th race start was a victory for patience and perseverance, as much as one for the owners and the stable.
Our colt by Excelebration out of Magita is progressing well at the end of his education program. We visited him, and two other yearlings being educated by renowned horseman Tim Hughes.
What better way to share the excitement about the progeny of Excelebration, than sharing what we see on Twitter!
We have to admit that Tiny’s Legacy has been frustrating all of us until his overdue victory at Seymour on Tuesday. It was a welcome reward for his breeder/owner, Ross Wilkinson.
A few of the horses checking out what’s going on this morning.
An additional $15.5m has been injected in next season’s Victorian prize money disbursements, taking the total prize money and bonuses above the $200m level for the first time.
It was lovely to welcome all owners for breakfast on Saturday and parade all the horses. Hope all that came enjoyed it.
Excelebration sired his first stakes-winner on Saturday at Newbury (UK), the first of many one suspects as his progeny mature into their three-year-old seasons.
Over the next week we are excited about our runners. Read about them here.
