With Troy Harris in the saddle the Jamie Richards-trained colt came clear in the closing stages to defeat Miss Ipenema (Sacred Falls) by two lengths with King Of Reds (Burgundy) a nose back in third.

A $65,000 purchase by Paul Willetts Bloodstock Consultancy out of the Newgate Farm draft at the 2019 Great Southern Sale – Weanlings Sale, Palamos went through the Ainsley Downs Stud draft at Karaka earlier this year where he was knocked down to David Ellis for $85,000.

He i

s the first foal of the imported Forest Wildcat mare Unrevealed who was a 4-time winner in Japan.

Palamos was a $85,000 Karaka yearling

Unrevealed is a sister to the Grade III winner Brownie Points who was runner-up in the Grade 1 Apple Blossom Stakes.

Purchased by Hollymount Stud for $110,000 at the 2019 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale, Unrevealed has a yearling filly by Deep Field and was covered by Bull Point last year.

Extreme Choice stands at a fee of $22,000 at Newgate Farm this spring.
