Bluebloods : Inglis Sydney Classic
BREEDING the Racing Stars of Tomorrow" is Egmont Park's proud motto - and the south-east Queensland farm is proven in its ability to produce stars. Home to the stallions Over and Dracula, Egmont is a dual purpose stud, also standing a number of high quality standardbred stallions and being the birthplace of pacing superstar Blacks A Fake. Two exciting youngsters are being prepared at Egmont Park for the Inglis Classic Sale on January 24-25, and the first to enter the ring will be Lot 240, a bay son of the Caulfield Guineas-Gr.1 winner God's Own. One of Redoute's Choice's finest racing sons, God's Own is only just being represented by his first runners - members of his debut crop selling extremely well to leading stables. This fellow, a son of the imported Bering mare Queen Moranbon, is a half-brother to five winners including the German Gr.3 winner Maranilla and the local stakes placegetter Airstream. Queen Moranbon is a daughter of the stakes placed Saint-Cloud winner Moranbon, in turn daughter of the wonderful race mare Before Dawn, champion filly on the 1981 USA free handicap. She also made her mark at stud, her descendants including the Japanese Gr.3 winner Big Gold, the US dual Listed winner J.P Jet, the NZ Gr.2 winner I Rock My World and the Golden Slipper-Gr.1 hero Prowl. Boasting a nicely constructed pedigree, this colt boasts three crosses of Northern Dancer and one each of that legendary stallion's relatives Danehill and Arctic Tern. The second of Egmont's two Classic colts is Lot 329, a member of the second crop of the globe-trotting champ Starcraft. A five times Gr.1 winner in Australia, New Zealand, France and England, he has made an encouraging start with first crop winners in Europe and Australasia. This bay is the second living foal of the unraced End Sweep mare Sweeping Views, half-sister to the stakes placegetters Rezyana and Sunday Service out of the South African stakes winner Lady's Delight. A half-sister to the Gr.2 winner Lady Broadhurst and the Listed winners Daphne Donnelly, Announce and Youthful Legs, she hails from the immediate family of the Caulfield Cup/Rosehill Guineas-Gr.1 winner Diatribe. This is of course also the family of the superstar stallions Northern Dancer, Halo, Danehill and Machiavellian and this colt is line-bred to the wonderful mare Natalma, his fifth dam.
