2021 FOALS








Golden Slipper winning sire Vancouver was represented by an impressive debut juvenile winner at Canterbury on Wednesday in Cape Breton (2c Vancouver x Exclusive Lass, by Nicconi) and followed up to win the next race with talented filly Canadian Spice (3f Vancouver x Paprika, by General Nediym), both horses prepared by champion trainer Chris Waller.

Cape Breton was well educated at the trials ahead of his first outing and found the 1250m juvenile maiden very much to his liking.

Partnered by James McDonald, he surged to the lead turning for home and held off all challengers to win by a neck.

“We’ve taken our time with him and he’s very much a work in progress,” said stable representative Charlie Duckworth.

“He’s slowly putting it altogether and we were confident coming here today that we had the right horse.

“He’s going to be a beautiful 3YO colt and we’re hoping a Guineas type of horse.”

A $600,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Willow Park draft for Tom Magnier, Cape Breton runs for a big group of owners including Coolmore and Sir Peter Vela in whose colours he runs.

Cape Breton is the most expensive yearling colt by Vancouver and was bred by Fergus and Delia Doyle and foaled and raised at Willow Park.

Cape Breton is the first foal from stakes-winning Nicconi mare Exclusive Lass, who was bought by James Harron Bloodstock for $460,000 at the 2018 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale when she was carrying Cape Breton.

Vancouver made it a winning double when Canadian Spice posted her second win with a dominant all the way front running performance under Tommy Berry to take the Benchmark 72 event over 1550m by a length.

Stakes-placed as a two year-old, Canadian Spice has won over $140,000 in prizemoney and may take confidence from her victory to go on and win more races.

A $600,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Coolmore draft for Woppitt Bloodstock / Hermitage Thoroughbreds, Canadian Spice was foaled and raised at Coolmore and is the fourth winner from five foals to race from stakes-winning General Nediym mare Paprika.

Paprika has no yearling for the sales this year, but produced a full sister to Canadian Spice last spring and is now in foal to Pride of Dubai.

Vancouver has sired the winners of over $2.2million in prizemoney this season highlighted by stakes - winners Yaletown and Night Raid, plus Group I placed Vangelic and stands this spring at $22,000.

Progressive colt Overpass (2c Vancouver x Walkway, by Exceed and Excel) went on his winning way at Gosford on Saturday notching his third consecutive win for the Bjorn Baker stable.

He had a tough run from a wide gate, but powered to the line under Josh Parr to win the $125,000 juvenile event over 1200m by a length and a quarter.

"I thought it was a massive win today, caught deep. It didn't work out with looking to be positive, but he just didn't have that gate speed and he looks like he's going to get over further as well. Really big win," Baker said.

"You've got to look at Queensland, we might do a little winter sojourn up there."

A $75,000 Inglis Easter Round 2 purchase for Darby Racing / Will Johnson Bloodstock from the Corumbene Stud draft, Overpass has won three of four starts and has already won nearly double his purchase price, banking over $143,000 in prizemoney.

He was bred by Corumbene and is the fourth winner from four to race from Exceed and Excel mare Walkway who comes from the family of Australian Horse of the Year Northerly.

Vancouver has sired 35 winners of over $2.1 million in prizemoney this season highlighted by stakes-winners Yaletown and Night Raid and stands at $22,000 this spring.
