The new fibre sand track at Seymour received a glowing endorsement, with its first major public test, the Victorian breeze-ups for next month’s Magic Millions Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale, declared a great success.
Some 45 juveniles were put through their paces on a sunny morning and early afternoon with 26 running sub-11 second sectionals recorded for the 200 metre breeze.
A filly by Eurozone stopped the clock in the day’s quickest breeze – running 10.37 seconds. Catalogued as Lot 249, the filly is a member of the quality draft from Rosemont Stud.
Colts by More Than Ready (10.52 secs), Smart Missile (10.56 secs) and Toorak Toff (10.56 secs) also impressed during the successful session.
“We would like to again thank Penny and her team from the Seymour Racing Club for presenting the brand new track in great condition,” Magic Millions’ Tim Brown reported.
“More than half of all breeze up lots broke 11 seconds and I’m confident there will be another Group One winner among the line up – just like Capital Gain last year,” Brown added.
Attention now switches to the Gold Coast Turf Club which hosts approximately 150 lots breezing on Monday (from 9.30am) before another session at Warwick Farm in Sydney on Tuesday (from 9am).
All breeze up sessions are streamed online via the live broadcast section of the Magic Millions website.
The 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale will be held on October 10 and 11.
Rosemont Stud has a fantastic draft for the event.
