Tassie 2YO Sensation Goes Six for Six

Tara Madgwick - Sunday May 16

The dominant juvenile in Tasmania this season, Outreach gelding Turk Warrior kept his undefeated record intact on Sunday when winning the $50,000 Tasmanian Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) at Hobart on Sunday.

Trained by Glen Stevenson, Turk Warrior was a hot favourite and cruised to an easy two length win .

Turk Warrior has won six from six and banked just shy of $300,000 for his lucky owner.

Passed in at the Tasmanian Magic Millions Yearling Sale, Turk Warrior was bred and consigned by Grenville Stud.

He is the best of five winners from stakes-winner Ehor, who also won the Listed Elwick Stakes at two before going on to take the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes as well.

Grenville Stud  sold the yearling colt by Zululand from Ehor at the 2021 Tasmanian Magic Millionsfor $100,000 to Lindsay Park Racing.


Turk Warrior is the first stakes-winner for Widden Stud’s young Exceed and Excel stallion Outreach, who  stands at the modest fee of $4,400 this spring at their NSW headquarters..
