On 15 and 16 May 2015, we were at Australia’s richest country races, the Scone Racing Carnival. And it was great to see so many of our clients represented.
One highlight was Sargent Doakes taking out the Inglis 2yo Challenge – not least because Thoroughbred represented the trainer (Rod Northam), breeders (Harry and Arthur Mitchell of Yarraman Park) and vendor (Jilly Henderson of Middlebrook Thoroughbreds). All clients of Thoroughbred Legal.
Thoroughbred Legal clients who did well on the race days included:
- Darley bred and raced Careless won the Newgate Stallions Maiden Plate
- Vinery Stud bred Makeadane fittingly won the Vinery Stud Handicap (C1) and another Vinery Stud product Skripchenko won the Segenhoe Stud Handicap (C1)
- Arrowfield Stud offered the winner of the Kia Ora Stud Handicap (C2), Avanaco, at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
- Born and bred in Scone, Peter Snowden and his son, Paul, bookended the Saturday meeting with Flippant sired by Yarraman Park’s Hinchinbrook and part owned by Harry and Arthur Mitchell, winning the first race the Pryde’s Easifeed Woodlands Stakes (L).
- The Snowden combination trained the Arrowfield Stud bred That’s a Good Idea to fittingly win the Arrowfield Ortensia Stakes. Coincidentally, the race was named after a Group 1 winning mare over three continents called Ortensia, owned by Alistair Fraser who is the brother of Thoroughbred Legal solicitor, George Fraser.The 5yo gelding was sold by Kitchwin Hills at the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
- Widden Stud bred Karakuchi won the Pages Equipment Country Cup (BM70). Widden Stud’s Loved Up also won the Inglis 3yo Guineas. The 3yo filly was offered in session 2 of the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale by Throughbred’s newest clients Alison and David Hush who have developed Davali Thoroughbreds at Lochinvar on the property formerly known as Twin Palms.
- Holbrook Thoroughbreds offered the Cressfield (BM75) winner, Leaders Road, at the 2010 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.
- Local trainer Greg Bennett trained In a Wink, the winner of the Coolmore Denise’s Joy Stakes (L).
Thoroughbred Legal director, Daniel Morgan, presented the Group 3 Darley Dark Jewel Classic winner Devertire, in combination with Ross Cole, Director of Corporate Services at Darley Australia.
Well done to everyone involved.
