First win for Tassie MM Sale-Topper

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday August 7
The top priced offering at the 2018 Magic Millions Tasmanian Yearling Sale was a lovely colt by Epaulette that fetched $100,000 and he opened his account with a stylish win at Cranbourne on Wednesday.

Influential Jack as a yearlingTrained by Matt Ellerton and Simon Zahra, Influential Jack was luckless when finishing fifth and fourth at his first two starts at Bendigo and Sandown last month, but atoned for those defeats with an impressive win.

Sent out favourite for the 1500 metre maiden, Influential Jack cruised clear to win by a length and a quarter over a competitive field of 13.

Purchased by his trainers from the Armidale Stud draft, Influential Jack is the fourth winner from stakes-placed Savoire Vivre (IRE) mare With Decorum, who is due to foal to Needs Further this spring.

Darley's young sire Epaulette did a great job last season siring some 56 winners of $3.7 million and is poised to keep up the good work.

The dual Group I winning son of Commands stands at a fee of $27,500.
