Not A Single Doubt’s Farnan Impresses in the Magic Millions Wyong Classic
Mark Smith - Thursday December 12

A facile winner at his career debut at Canberra over three weeks back, Aquis Farm and Phoenix Thoroughbred’s Not A Single Doubt colt Farnan will head to the Gold Coast with a favourites chance following a dominant performance in Thursday’s $200,000 Magic Millions Wyong 2yo Classic (1100m).Farnan keeps his record perfect in the MM Wyong Classic - image Steve Hart

The best to jump under Tim Clark, Farnan sat outside the pacesetting Time For Peace and when asked for the supreme effort in the straight produced an impressive burst of acceleration that proved too much for Choisir’s impressive Gimcrack Stakes winner Every Rose who could get no closer than a length with the Written Tycoon colt Remorseless three lengths back in third.

Trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Farnan was slashed to $5 favourite for the $2 million Magic Millions 2yo Classic at the Gold Coast on January 11.

Clark said the son of Not A Single Doubt is fool proof.

“This is the first time that I have sat on him. He was very impressive, his attitude is great,” Clark said.

“He began well and sat outside the leader, we controlled the speed from there and he gave a nice kick. I felt the filly coming but he responded for me and was strong through the line.”Tim Clark brings Faran back to scale image Steve Hart

Adrian Bott said a decision on whether Farnan has another start before the Classic will be made later.

 "Like all those good young horses and the good colts in particular, he's got a great attitude,” Bott said.

"We kept him nice and fresh between runs getting here today and it's good to see him take that next step."

Purchased for $550,000 by Phoenix Thoroughbreds/Aquis Farms out of the Vinery Stud draft at the 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Farnan was bred by Phoenix and is the sixth foal of the talented Tallow a Group III winning daughter of Street Cry.

Tallow has left three winners from as many to race highlighted by the Snitzel colt Sandbar who numbers wins in the Listed ATC Lonhro Stakes and Listed ATC The Rosebud among his four wins.

Purchased by David Lucas on behalf of Phoenix Thoroughbreds for $250,000 at the 2017 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale, Tallow has missed at her last two seasons.

The ever-popular Not A Single Doubt has 28 yearlings on offer at the Gold Coast Magic Millions beginning on January 8.
