We were very fortunate to have some luck in the sales ring this week when securing seven new yearlings to join the Pride Racing team. The brand new Riverside complex was a pleasure to attend and we are very much looking forward to Easter.

Hinchinbrook x Redhandedjill

Tricolours Syndications secured our first lot of the sale when purchasing Lot 58 from the Gold Riband session on the Saturday night. He is a Hinchinbrook colt out of four time winning mare Redhandedjill, who is the half sister to Group 3 winning mare Into The Red. Contact Tricolours to know more by clicking here


Hinchinbrook x Leamington

Proven Thoroughbreds secured our second horse of the evening when the hammer dropped for Lot 112. Joe was thrilled to acquire this Milburn Creek bred Hinchinbrook colt, a precocious type that will be paid up for the lucrative Inglis Race Series which offers $8 million in prizemoney for 2018 graduates. With BOBS bonuses also available, this athletic colt is an attractive racing proposition. For more information contact Proven Thoroughbreds by clicking here


Shamus Award x Star Salute

Lot 138 was our next yearling to join the team. He was one of the first horses that Joe viewed at the Riverside complex and Joe was even more delighted to take him home for $40,000. He is out of the stakes placed General Nediym mare Star Salute, who was a three time winner which included a win in her two year old year. She has already had one foal to race who is a winner at two over 1400m and this yearling is her second foal. He is a well put together individual and we can't wait for him to arrive in the barn.

Your Song x Kats Clause

Lot 467 a colt by Your Song was the next yearling to join the Tricolours/Pride Racing team. He is out of a stakes winning mare in Kats Clause, who won the G3 Mannerism Stakes, and a further 7 races. She has had 5 foals to race, all are winners, including the Listed Tasmanian Guineas winner in Mister John (Strada). This colts full brother, Mister Songman, has already won 4 races from 6 starts! He also comes from the same family as Group 1 George Ryder Stakes winner Ravarda. here

Exceed and Excel x Double Dee

Our final purchase for Proven Thoroughbreds was Lot 365, an athletic looking son of Exceed And Excel, sire of the grand-slam of Australian two-year-old racing - Golden Slipper, Blue Diamond, Sires' Produce, Champagne & Magic Millions. As well as being a half-sister to one of only four Cox Plate winning three-year-olds since 1985, the dam Double Dee (Dubleo) won five races in Melbourne from 1000m to 1600m.

THE BIG WEEKEND


We kick off Friday night with three runners at Canterbury and one runner at Moonee Valley.

Argent D'Or

Argent D'Or and Brenton Avdulla join forces in the fifth race of the night over 1200m. He could have done with some rainfall overnight but this looks like an ideal assignment for him.

Tamarack

Tamarack is the second horse to carry the Proven Thoroughbred's colours on the night when teaming up with Jay Ford over 1900m. Tamarack just lost out on the win last start at Kembla but the step up in distance should be to suit tonight.

Mana

Mana will be carrying Pride colours in the seventh race with Jay Ford in the saddle. Mana gave a super effort first up at Warwick Farm on Australia Day and comes here in great order. It would have been ideal if we had some rain during the week but never the less he is on great form.

Brook Magic

Meanwhile in Melbourne our stable speed machine Brook Magic will be flying the flag for Pride Racing at Moonee Valley. Brook Magic has returned to the stable in excellent order this prep when winning her two trials back as well as her first assignment at Warwick Farm on Australia Day. She teams up with Melbourne jockey Mark Zahra in the Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge over 955m. Good luck to all the Proven Thoroughbreds connections tonight.

Super Saturday


It's a family affair at Flemington on Saturday with our Group 1 winner Terravista defending his title in the Lightning. In a case of sibling rivalry, younger half brother Ball Of Muscle will also contest the race.

Terravista will jump from barrier four with jockey Mark Zahra. He is resuming after his close defeat in the Group 1 Darley Classic in November when we was just beaten within a length of the Snowden trained Redzel.


Ball Of Muscle resumes after his gallant victory in the G.H. Mumm Stakes at Flemington in November. Craig Williams takes his place in the saddle on this 1000m specialist and we are looking forward to the brothers going head to head.


Good luck to our Parfore brothers and their connections.
