THE TONE IS SET FOR STARDOM

The early success of Japanese-bred stallions in Australia was on show today with the first 2YO trials of the season conducted at Royal Randwick. The first of the two trials was taken out by I Love Lucy, the Lee Curtis-trained daughter of Maurice (Jpn), just ahead of the Woodside Park Stud-bred and sold Little Miss Magic, a filly by Written Tycoon. The very next 2YO trial of the day saw [...]

The vagaries of thoroughbred racehorse breeding never fail to fascinate. How on occasions a 1000m specialist can produce a Cup aspirant, how a known mudlark can throw a confirmed firm tracker, how a perfect specimen can sire a poorly conformed speedster. How Woodside Park Stud's handsome but plain bay Tosen Stardom can sire foals with bling. And not just some bling... plenty of it! Of course the answers are always [...]
