Classic First Season Sires Will Make an Impact

Having had a good look at the progeny of first season sires through Magic Millions and Karaka, the market has had a chance to assess the young guns and now we move to Inglis Classic starting this Sunday where five of the top 10 most represented sires are first season sires.

Last to First Winner Brings Karaka Update

Well related Not a Single Doubt filly Don’tdoubtlayla unleashed a brilliant finish to charge home from last to win at Randwick on Wednesday bringing a timely update for her Karaka bound three-quarter sister by Anders.

Widden First Season Sires off the Mark

The 2024 Magic Millions Yearling Sale was a busy one for Widden Stud selling 65 yearlings across Books 1 and 2 for $14.6million and particularly pleasing was the warm reception afforded their first season sires Anders, Russian Camelot (IRE), Dirty Work and Doubtland.

Widden Stud’s bargain priced Not a Single Doubt son Anders has been quietly making a very good impression at Magic Millions with eight yearlings selling so far at an average $216,250 off a $16,500 service fee and one of them, a colt from En Aval sold for $300,000 to the great delight of Widden Stud’s yearling manager Liam Attwood.
