One to Watch - Cranbourne

Tara Madgwick - Friday October 8

A half-sister to Group I VRC Coolmore Stud Stakes winner Septmeber Run by American Pharoah (USA), this debut winner at Cranbourne on Friday evening was an easy pick as the ‘One to Watch’.

Trained by John Salanitri and ridden by Dean Holland, My Yankee Girl came from off the pace to score a fast finishing three-quarter length win over hot favourite Dollar Chaser in the 1000m maiden.


A $100,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Coolmore draft for Hirsch Racing, My Yankee Girl looks to have been very well bought and looms as a great investment for Eddie Hirsch being the second foal and second winner from Group III winning Street Cry (IRE) mare Pittsburgh Flyer.


My Yankee Girl as a yearling.

My Yankee Girl was bred by Go Bloodstock as they purchased her dam Pittsburgh Flyer for $500,000 at the 2108 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale when she was in foal to American Pharoah.

She has a yearling filly to follow by Merchant Navy and has foaled this spring producing a colt by Exceed and Excel.

My Yankee Girl’s sire American Pharoah has one of the leading contenders for the Group I ATC Spring Champion Stakes in Head of State, a last start winner of the Group III ATC Gloaming Stakes.

American Pharoah has already sired Group I winners in North America, Japan and France, the Triple Crown winner back at Coolmore this spring at a fee of $49,500.

Sires With Winners - Friday October 15
Here is the full list of 46 stallions which had winners throughout Australasia today with winners and result details.
Sebring Filly Off to the Oaks
There was a big shake-up in the betting for the Kennedy Oaks following the dominant performance of the Sebring filly Daisies and the sub-par performance of Kapalua Sunset in Saturday’s Group III Schweppes Ethereal Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield.
24th G1 Winner for Savabeel

Zoustar is not a sire we think about when looking for potential Derby contenders, but if anyone can turn that thinking on it’s head it will be Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.
It’s Nature Strip’s Everest!

Early Stakes Double for Sebring
Widden Stud’s much missed Golden Slipper winning sire Sebring posted an early stakes double with Daisies winning the Group III MRC Ethereal Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield quickly followed by Fangirl, who captured the Listed ATC Reginald Allen Stakes (1400m) at Randwick.
Is This the Next Derby Winner for Tavistock?
After Daisies flagged her Oaks credentials in the Ethereal Stakes, Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr look to have another Classic contender in the Victoria Derby-bound Gunstock following his strong-finishing win in the Group III Caulfield Classic (2000m).
