Here’s a nice filly purchased at the recent Magic Millions National Sale with staying races in mind. She’s by the New Zealand based stallion TARZINO who excelled on the racetrack winning twice at the elite Group 1 level.
Those big feature races were the VRC Derby and the Rosehill Guineas, and that led to Tarzino being crowned Champion 3yo Colt in Australia in his year. After being retired from racing, he was sent to stud in New Zealand, and his first progeny were offered at the Karaka sales there earlier this year. I saw plenty of them and I was quite impressed with them on the whole, and in fact I was the under bidder on two of them. That first crop have just turned two year olds on August 1st, and will get to the races later this year, and so it’s exciting to get one on the team.
This filly is bred to go a journey. Tarzino won from 1400m to 2500m, and her dam was a winner at 2050m. She’s from an O’Reilly mare, and he’s one of the greatest stallions ever to stand in New Zealand. Her second dam is by the mighty Sir Tristram, and he was the greatest stallion ever to stand not only in New Zealand, but the entire Southern Hemisphere which is a huge achievement.
Further down the pedigree page, this is the family of TRI BELLE who was the NZ filly of the year with 11 wins in total-9 of them in Group and Listed races. Generally speaking, when you delve deep into this filly’s pedigree, you’ll notice that most of the horses in the family have won over 2000m+-and if you want a stayer, that’s exactly what you should be looking for.
In addition to a good pedigree page though, you have to firstly have a horse that’s well put together-and that’s what I always buy first-the athlete. She’s a cracker, no two ways about it, and she looks every inch a stayer in the making. Will she be good enough to get you in the winners circle on Western Australian Oaks day? Let’s hope so!
Possible Residual Value:
There’s one important thing about buying nice fillies like this, and that is that you get the racehorse for a few years, but you get the mare for a lifetime. If she can deliver the goods on the racetrack, she’ll be much sought after as a potential broodmare, and then as a syndicate, we can elect to either carry on and breed with her, or send her to sale and cash out.
This is a 20 share syndicate priced at $2,575 each.
