Sizzling X Art Gallery

2 year old Chestnut Filly

Sire: Sizzling Dam: Art Gallery

Trainer's Name: Steve O'Dea

Some broodmares just have it. Art Gallery went to the races 3 times without troubling the scorer. And she's by a nondescript sire in Marju. Yet her first 3 foals were all good types and they've all won in town.

So when the 4th, by stallion debutante SIZZLING (SNITZEL's brilliant son) , exhibited superior physical qualities when she strolled out of the box at the MAGIC MILLIONS QTIS Sale, she was the one we had to acquire. Have a look at this gorgeous filly!

Strong but very neat, a deep girth & powerful shoulder, correctly limbed and a lovely, rich chestnut to boot. And she has the mighty ZABEEL in the second dam!

This filly will be eligible for manifold riches...MAGIC MILLIONS all her life and those terrific QTIS filly bonuses that Racing Qld have pumped into general programming.

Eurozone X Dance Hit

2 year old Chestnut Colt

Sire: Eurozone Dam: Dance Hit

Trainer's Name: Steve O'Dea

**60% SOLD**

At the MAGIC MILLIONS Sale we sourced a stylish colt from the STAKES winning mare DANCE HIT by the first season sire EUROZONE.

An athletic, powerful colt who moves fluently, he's broken in a treat at Kolora Lodge. Eligible for the MAGIC MILLIONS for the duration of his life, this colt represents great value.

Savabeel X Polish

2 year old Bay Filly

Sire: Savabeel Dam: Polish

Trainer's Name: John Thompson

At the KARAKA Sale in NZ this year we identified the SAVABEEL filly from Polish, an O’REILLY half sister to GROUP 1 winner METAL BENDER as one of the standouts. Trainer John Thompson, who has produced high class females such as  FIRST SEAL and ZANBAGH, will give this filly every chance of making to an OAKS.

A first foal, this filly is bred on the potent SAVABEEL/O’REILLY cross, which yields a phenomenal 20% STAKES WINNERS to runners! And the two GROUP 1 victors of that cross are both fillies.

SAVABEEL's stallion record speaks for itself. He's produced Group I winners from 1400m-3200m among more than 100 stakes performers.

This girl is also from the same family as an 8-time winning mare of ours called ROSE OF FALVELON.

Choisir X Lalani

2 year old Bay Filly

Sire: Choisir Dam: Lalani

Trainer's Name: Joe Pride

**95% SOLD**

CHOISIR is clearly the most underrated sire in the country. Champagne Stakes hero THE MISSION, maintained his extremely consistent record of producing a GROUP 1 winner every year since 2009!!!

Joe Pride's success rate with CHOISIR's stock is phenomenal.....From 17 runners by the sire he’s prepared 14 winners including DONCASTER heroine SACRED CHOICE which bears some noticeable similarities to this filly.

The third foal from young LONHRO mare Lalani, she's bred on the same cross as multiple Saturday metropolitan winner Louie Sea Kay. This filly was one of the value buys of the year!

Declaration Of War X Ledecky's Girl

2 year old Bay Colt

Sire: Declaration of War Dam: Ledecky's Girl

Trainer's Name: John Thompson

**70% SOLD**

DECLARATION OF WAR was a brilliant middle distance galloper who won more than half his starts (13 sts 7-1-2) and was declared the joint champion older male in Europe for 2013. 

When you mate him with a MONTJEU mare who won up to 2100m and rear the progeny on the golden pasture of New Zealand, you’ve got a live shot at a DERBY or CUPS race in Australia. And MONTJEU mares have produced almost 50 individual stakes winners, the best being LUCIA VALENTINA.

And he's hit the ground running at stud with 2 stakes winners and a placegetter in France's biggest 2YO race from only a handful of runners.

The New Zealanders have won FOUR of the last 5 ATC DERBIES….JON SNOW, TAVAGO, MONGOLIAN KHAN and IT’S A DUNDEEL. In other words, if you want to win a DERBY, you shop in NZ. And the shopping in 2017 was exceptional with value abounding. The DECLARATION OF WAR colt is a most impressive type whose dam is a half-sister to the multiple GROUP 1 winner ZIRNA, one of 10 winners from 11 to race.

This colt represents outstanding value.

Sebring X Sarthemare

2 year old Brown Colt

Sire: Sebring Dam: Sarthemare

Trainer's Name: Steve O'Dea

**75% SOLD**

When he a young mare throws a pair of winners from as many foals and those winners are physically flawed, clearly that mare is engendering her stock with the undefinable quality we're ALL striving for....the burning will to win!

STREET CRY's SARTHEMARE, who could run herself (BLACK OPAL victor), is one such mare. Her freshman foal (by MANHATTAN RAIN) has won 7 races already. And her second, is one of Steve O'Dea's most promising gallopers, Doubt Defying (NOT A SINGLE DOUBT). Both have obvious physical deficiencies.

The latest foal is a far more correct, appealing specimen. So we bought him. Unlike most of the SEBRING progeny, he has a very distinguished head, abundant leg but muscular forearms and a general look of quality.

SEBRING has established himself among the top echelon of sires with more than 30 individual stakes winners (including Group 1 winners CRITERION, DISSIDENT, EGG TART, & LUCKY BUBBLES) since his first crop raced in the 2012-13 season.

Fighting Sun X Head Over Heels

2 year old Bay Filly

Sire: Fighting Sun Dam: Head Over Heels

Trainer's Name: Joe Pride

There were few more impressive debutant sires this year than FIGHTING SUN. Big, powerful, loose moving types with great bone & forearms they had a quality look about them. Hardly surprising….he was a cracking son of NORTHERN METEOR himself, unbeaten in two starts.

Who knows whether FIGHTING SUN makes it as a stallion but when mated with already successful producers, he’ll have every chance. Head Over Heels (by FASTNET ROCK) is one such mare with a 100% record having already thrown GROUP 2 winner NEW PREDATOR (by failure NEW APPROACH) and two other winners from her only three foals to race.

Her filly by FIGHTING SUN is an eye-catcher…..a lovely, alert head & eye, plenty of size & scope and an effortless action. She’ll join Joe Pride at Warwick Farm who specializes in sprinter/miler fillies like this.

Zoustar X Classic Guitar

2 year old Brown Colt

Sire: Zoustar Dam: Classic Guitar

Trainer's Name: Joe Pride

**60% SOLD**

**UPDATE** ZOUSTAR's first runner a stakes placegetter!

ZOUSTAR, the only dual Group 1-winning son of NORTHERN METEOR, followed in his father's and grandfather's (ENCOSTA DE LAGO) footsteps on the racetrack in winning the prestigious Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington. The time recorded was the second fastest 1200-metre race held at Flemington during the entire 2013-14 season - not bad for a spring 3YO!

Click here for footage of ZOUSTAR's scintillating performances on the track.

ZOUSTAR's first crop were an extremely attractive bunch but one colt was a standout at the Inglis EASTER Sale. Embodying that same NORTHERN METEOR look, this colt was correct and observant with a great demeanour about him.

And what about his maternal family! From the city winning LONHRO mare Classic Guitar, 15 of the 16 foals in the first three dams to race, are winners! This season alone LONHRO's mares have produced stakes winners like DERRYN, MORTON’S FORK, GATTING, CURDLED, ASPECT, and VERANILLO.

Joe Pride is thrilled to be training this colt after taking such a shine to him at the sales. Considering that ZOUSTAR's average yearling price in 2017 was in excess of $250k we were delighted to secure him for $80k.

Sizzling X Hold For Ransom

2 year old Bay Filly

Sire: Sizzling Dam: Hold for Ransom

Trainer's Name: Steve O'Dea

**60% SOLD**

Steve O'Dea saw a lot of SIZZLING each morning at Eagle Farm and concluded he had all the attributes required to make a sire.

Well bred (by SNITZEL), a brave & talented racehorse winner of 7 inc the GROUP 1 TJ SMITH (now the JJ ATKINS), a beautiful type AND a great attitude. So when his first progeny appeared on the market we resolved to pursue them.

The HOLD FOR RANSOM filly resonated... a strong, precocious type she had the right distaff credentials as well being out of a half sister to the brilliant MM winner REAL SURREAL and the hardy galloper BENNY'S BUTTONS.

This filly looks an early running type for Steve O'Dea.
