Bluebloods : April 2010
BRILLIANT Snitzel filly Chance Bye has been a great advertisement for the Cornish family's Torryburn Stud this season as the daughter of the Red Ransom (USA) mare Rouge Femme remains unbeaten going into the Golden Slipper. Two of her three wins, the other being the Silver Slipper-Gr.2, came in the rich $250,000 Inglis Classic at Rosehill on January 23 and the inaugural $250,000 Inglis Nursery at Randwick on December 19, while other winners of Inglis sales-related races bred by the stud were the David Hayes-trained Marmaa (General Nediym) in the $250,000 Inglis Juvenile at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day and Travaldo (Mossman) in an Inglis Bonus race at Canberra - a huge result for the Torryburn team and stud manager Reggie McKellar. A $15,000 buy for trainer Michael Tubman, Chance Bye, was raised on some great horse country at East Gresford in the Hunter Valley, as were the 20 yearlings Torryburn will be taking to the 2010 Inglis Australian Easter Sale at Newmarket, Sydney from April 6-8. First settled in 1821 by John McIntyre and later owned by the family of poet Dorothea Mackellar, Torryburn was purchased by John and Pam Cornish and their family in 2002, and they have added to and improved the already extensive horse breeding infrastructure as well as purchasing two adjoining properties. Torryburn has a substantial frontage to the Allyn River, providing valuable irrigation in summer, and the property also has many dams for water storage. More than 100 mares foal down each season for the boutique farm's owners and their clients and they are walked on to neighbouring Hunter studs to be covered by some of Australia's best sires. The Torryburn draft begins with Lot 60, a bay colt by Al Maher ex Montana Downs (by Bluebird). He is a three- quarter brother to recent stakes winner Montana Flyer and the stakes placed Montana Sunset and out of a winning half-sister to the Gr.2 placed Montana Sands. John and Pam's son Brett says this colt is very typical of his sire. "He's strong and a real runner and he's a three-quarter brother to a recent stakes winner." Lot 102, a brown filly by Flying Spur ex Pink Mogul (by Last Tycoon), is a half- sister to the stakes placed seven times winner Amici Forever and out of a dual city winner from the family of the Gr.1 winners Onemorenomore and Casino Prince.
