The filly

Last year when I attended the Tasmanian Magic Millions Yearling Sale I was taken with some of the progeny of Armidale Stud’s first season sire Needs Further. They certainly looked like racehorses and this assessment has been backed up with them coming out running and for one of his daughters being the first stakes winner of the first season sires in Australia. This is impressive.

Unfortunately I was the under bidder to a filly in that sale by Needs Further. I wasn’t going to miss out this year and the filly I purchased was one of four I really liked and had vetted.

The four I liked were well received by the market selling for up to $60,000 although this filly was the one I wanted.

She is very athletic and has nice length to her. Having written that she also quite strong and possesses a wonderful hindquarter. She has an attractive head and has inherited the a very important characteristic that Last Tycoon puts into a pedigree. He really tidies up the progeny and puts a lot of quality into the foals. She is a terrific chance of doing the job for us and is the first yearling I have purchased for Stuart Gandy.

Needs Further

Needs Further is by Encosta De Lago who is quickly establishing himself as a sire of sires with the ill fated Northern Meteor being his best. I also am bullish about the future of Delago Deluxe which stands at Newhaven Park.

Needs Further was a good racehorse winning the time honoured ATC Carbine Club Stakes at Royal Ranwick where he ran good time. His dam Crowned Glory was placed 2nd in the STC Golden Slipper Stakes and his pedigree page oozes high class performers.

Needs Further was reared at the famous Gooree Stud which produced Northern Meteor as well as well as Australia’s Champion First Season Sire in 2015/16 Season in Smart Missile as well as the emerging first season sire Your Song.

Needs Further’s dam is by Danehill and grand dam by the great Bletchingly and a ½ sister to Zabeel.

Needs Further’s first crop hit the ground running with two individual winners to his credit already. He looks to have a bright future.

Tycoon Sali

As you could imagine I have looked at 1000’s of mares in my time in racing and for some reason some stand out in your memory. About 15 years ago I visited Camoquill Stud in Tasmania to inspect their yearlings. In a paddock near the homestead I spotted a mare and asked the Camoquill’s owner Graham McLeod who she was. Her name was Saliah by Salieri and was one of the most attractive mares I have ever seen.

As it turned out Saliah was to go on to be a very good broodmare producing six winners from seven to race including the very good stakes winner Bank Robber and Kwassa Kwassa who ran second to Black Caviar at Flemington. She is also the dam of Tycoon Sali.

Ponton Flyer appears in the 3rd dam. She was a star on the track and at stud. She won at Group 2 level and was placed 2nd in the Group 1 VRC Sires Produce Stakes and MRC 1000 Guineas.

As a broodmare Tycoon Sali has had three to race for two winners including Liberty Tycoon the winner of nine races. She had issues getting into foal and had a few years off but I’m pleased the breeders persisted and hopefully this outstanding filly with justify their perseverance.

Armidale Stud

Armidale Stud has been run as a Thoroughbred Nursery for over 50 years. The Wishaw family are an institution in Tasmania and are extremely highly regarded as running one of the most professional stud farms in Australia.

They have continued to support the breeding industry in Tasmania through some difficult times for racing and I have no hesitation in purchasing a yearling from them. They are outstanding breeders.

Some of the better horses to have come from Armidale Stud in recent years include Up Cups, Lady Lynette, Queenstown, Iggimacool, Helova Street, Like A Carousel, Dream Pedla, Black And Tough and Rebel Bride.
