DOUBLE GIVES A MILLION REASONS FOR BURNEWANG CELEBRATION (TDN 25/1/2021)

Written by Bren O’Brien

Star 3-year-old Need I Say More claimed his fourth career stakes win in seven starts in the G3 Almanzor Trophy, before On The Bubbles, also bred by Burnewang North, won the NZ$1 million R. Listed Karaka Million 2YO.

Both horses were sold as foals by Burnewang North, before eventually being purchased by Te Akau Racing’s David Ellis as yearlings and prepared by Te Akau trainer Jamie Richards.

“Both horses are very lucky to end up in the stewardship of Jamie Richards and Te Akau, because their dominance and results set and extraordinary benchmark for Australasian racing,” Burnewang North owner Cathy Hains told TDN AusNZ.

“Te Akau are just a juggernaut, it’s awesome to see and we are beside ourselves to have that connection with them.” – Cathy Hains

“Good on the people who took them as weanlings and took them to New Zealand, because clearly there was something that happened in between times that have suited those horses.

“Neither of them were standouts as foals. We would have rated them in the top 25 per cent of our crop, but clearly they are a whole lot higher than that now!”

On The Bubbles was purchased by Ben Kwok and Bevan Smith Bloodstock from the Burnewang North draft at the 2019 Inglis Great Southern Sale in Melbourne for $60,000, before being pinhooked for NZ$90,000 to Ellis as part of the Leanach Lodge draft at the New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale at Karaka last year.

On The Bubbles as a yearling

“He was an attractive foal, but he had a few setbacks when he was younger and that made him look a bit behind his other mates in the paddock. We thought he had a good frame and would eventually grow into a nice hose, but he was a bit backwards,” Hains said.

“He was also a bit feisty, so we weren’t at all surprised to learn he had to be gelded, because of attitude issues.

“He didn’t have the best of x-rays. He had moderate sized stifle OCDs. So while he was popular with viewers and had quite a few second lookers, we only got him just over the line for his reserve.”

It was a similar path to Jamie Richards’ stables that Need I Say More plotted a year earlier, when initially sold by Burnewang North for $65,000 at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale to Kilgravin Lodge, who then secured a NZ$130,000 pricetag from Ellis for him at Karaka in 2019.

“She’s a big mare, his dam Bo Bardi, and he was a big first foal, so it was a pretty tough foaling. He was a fair size, with good shoulder and leg and had plenty of scope as a weanling,” Hains said.

“He was narrow-chested and a bit light in the forearm. He didn’t look your typical early runner. Eoin Kemp from Kilgravin Lodge bought him up on the Gold Coast. He was a good mover and he had plenty of x-ray hits.”

Humble origins make success sweeter

Considering the recent hot nature of the Australian yearling market, they aren’t big prices for horses that are featuring at the front end of New Zealand’s best 2 and 3-year-old races, and that’s something which proves to Hains the importance of good judgement.

“Good on David Ellis and Jamie Richards for picking them out,” she said.

“On face value, it looks like the market has slipped away from the syndicate buyers and the everyday owners, but it hasn’t really, because there is still opportunities there for some of the smarter buyers to overlook some of the things that are so important to the high-end commercial buyers and end up with a viable proposition,” she said.

Hains feels that while the sales of Need I Say More and On The Bubbles weren’t exactly lucrative for them as breeders, it was important to give prominence to the opportunities there on offer for those willing to invest at different points of the market.

“To me, it’s really important to have an entry level which people can access and enjoy. It’s fantastic when you see Bryan Martin and the team he had involved with On The Bubbles, at the pub with their bubbly, that’s the sort of thing that makes it fun,” she said.

“To me, it’s really important to have an entry level which people can access and enjoy.” – Cathy Hains

“With the big-money horses, it’s fabulous to have an industry that reaches those heady heights, but for me, it’s about the sport. For people to be able to cover some costs and have some fun and get some really enjoyable moments at a higher level, is really something that should be affordable, if we are going to attract people to spend their hard-earned money on it.”

Brem’s legacy

Both horses were first foals out of mares that Burnewang North purchased out of broodmare sales under the guidance of the late bloodstock agent Steve Brem.

“I’m sure he would be absolutely delighted to see his selections producing such great results, especially in these races in New Zealand, given he himself was a Kiwi,” Hains said.

Need I Say More’s dam, Bo Bardi (Fastnet Rock), is a winning daughter of American stakes winner Our Golden Dream (USA) (Medaglia D’Oro {USA}) who cost $75,000 in foal to No Nay Never (USA) at the 2017 Inglis Australian Broodmare Sale, while On The Bubbles’ dam, More Bubbles (Sebring), is a half-sister to Group 1 winner Politeness (Street Sense {USA}) who cost $100,000 at the Inglis Great Southern Sale in foal to Brazen Beau.

Hains said the strategy wasn’t specifically to secure mares in foal, but find ones that would work well within the Burnewang North broodmare band.

“Young mares are always at a premium and an in-foal mare has that residual value. We tend to take the attitude that it’s best not to be overly influenced by who the mare is in foal to. We look first and foremost at the mare and how she fits our parameters in terms of type, pedigree and affordability,” she said.

“Being in foal is optimal, being in foal to a good stallion is better still and being affordable is what gets you over the line in the ring.”

Both delivered foals by Darley’s Impending last spring, Bo Bardi a filly and More Bubbles a colt.

“Bo Bardi’s Impending filly is like her brother, plenty of size and leg and she is now in foal to Too Darn Hot,” Hains said.

“The colt (out of More Bubbles) is probably the pick out of those two. Having said that, the filly has residual value if Need I Say More can go on.”

Both are a chance to feature in upcoming drafts for Burnewang North during the weanling sales mid-year, although Hains said she would keep her options open.

More Bubbles missed to Frosted (USA) last spring. “She might just be one of those less voracious breeders, but we won’t hold that against her,” she said.

Hains said Saturday’s results were also a fitting reward for the hard-working staff at Burnewang North.

“We’ve got an amazingly positive, committed and dedicated team. Absolutely, it puts a spring in everyone’s step. They work really, really hard and they always look on the sunnyside of things,” she said.

“That’s sort of necessary in this business, but when you get a real ray of sunshine, there is a lot to be celebrated, and exactly what we have been doing among ourselves.”


BUBBLES FLOW AS TE AKAU JUGGERNAUT ROLLS ON IN 2YO CLASSIC (TDN 24/1/2021)

If history can be considered a reliable guide, Group 1 success is coming the way of On The Bubbles (Brazen Beau) off the back of an outstanding display to continue Te Akau’s dominance of the R. Listed Karaka Million.

On The Bubbles continued the all-conquering Te Akau’s stranglehold on the Doubletree By Hilton 2-year-old feature with its fifth consecutive victory to give further credence to its purchasing approach at new Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale.

With bidding to open at the 2021 Sale on Sunday, the David Ellis-led operation will again attack the auction ring in high spirits following the celebration sparked by On The Bubbles’ performance at Ellerslie.

For Head Trainer Jamie Richards it was his third Karaka Million victory in his own right having prepared last year’s winner Cool Aza Beel (NZ) (Savabeel) and 2019 heroine Probabeel (NZ) (Savabeel).

When training in partnership with Stephen Autridge, he shared in the glory of 2018 winner Avantage (Fastnet Rock) and 12 months previously with Melody Belle (NZ) (Commands).

The odd one out in the Te Akau set is Cool Aza Beel, who claimed just one top-flight title in the Sistema S. before his recent purchase for stud duty by Newhaven Park.

Probabeel, Avantage and Melody Belle are all multiple Group 1 winners, and still counting, so On The Bubbles has a lot to live up to in the future, but his Ellerslie display provided ample evidence he is capable of rising to expectations.

Jamies Richards

Wide gate no issue

Richards had said during the week that he believed On The Bubbles was the stable’s best chance and wasn’t swayed when he drew the outside gate and rider Johnathan Parkes played his part with a gun ride.

“On The Bubbles is going to just need a bit of luck and we’ve won it from out there before so why can’t we do it again?” Richards said at the live barrier draw on Wednesday and how right he was.

“He was aided by a lovely ride and to find the one out and one back spot was a big effort so full credit to Johnathan and the horse. It’s been a really big team effort and I’m very proud.”

While On The Bubbles proved the dominant force at Ellerslie, he was ably supported by his stablemates with Sneaky Shark (Capitalist) finishing runner-up ahead of Avonallo (NZ) (Belardo {Ire}) and Sophisticardo (NZ) (Bugundy {NZ}) was fourth.

Richards’ fifth representative Millefiori (NZ) (Iffraaj {GB}) was the only slight disappointment in finishing out of contention.

“They all ran very well and Sneaky Shark was great with the hood on after a disappointing run last week,” he said. “Lisa Allpress on Avonallo took the bull by the horns and led up and Sophisticardo kept up a strong gallop.

They all ran very well and Sneaky Shark was great with the hood on after a disappointing run last week.” – Jamie Richards

“Millefiori probably just didn’t handle the back-up and she will be a lovely 3-year-old.”

On The Bubbles jumped well from his wide barrier and Parkes quickly decided to press ahead after being caught wide to sit one off the fence. He peeled out three wide before the home turn and his charge proved too good in the run to the wire.

“I was lucky enough to have the horse and the opportunity to ride him in such a big race when the money was up, he’s a super horse,” Parkes said.

“I was caught wide and was thinking whether to go back or forward and he’s such a big, rolling horse that I went forward and he did it quite easily. I pulled out before the turn and he proved too good for them.”

On The Bubbles completed a memorable day for breeder Burnewang North as the North Victorian operation also bred and sold the Richards-trained Need I Say More (No Nay Never {USA}), who won the G3 Cambridge Stud Almanzor Trophy earlier in the program.

Originally bought at the Inglis Great Southern Weanling Sale by Ben Kwok and Bevan Smith Bloodstock for $60,000, On The Bubbles was re-offered at New Zealand Bloodstock’s Yearling Sale by Leanach Lodge and knocked down to Te Akau’s David Ellis for NZ$90,000.

He is a son of the Sebring mare More Bubbles who is a half-sister to the G1 Myer Classic winner Politeness (Street Sense {USA}) and also the family of the Group 2 winners Thackeray (At Talaq {USA}) and Parables (Lonhro).

EVERYONE IS ON THE BUBBLES!

ON THE BUBBLES (Brazen Beau-More Bubbles) continued his unbeaten run to win the NZ $1 million R. Listed Karaka Million 2yo race (23/1).  Having drawn barrier 15, it was a masterful ride by Johnathan Parkes to position the horse perfectly.  He peeled out three wide before the home turn proved too good in the run to the wire.  Another amazing win for Te Akau Racing and Jamie Richards and a HUGE thrill for us.

The win was celebrated both near and far with large syndicates having shares in the horse including Bryan Martin and his team who celebrated in style at The Emerald Hotel.  Let’s just say everyone was “on the bubbles”.  Great job Bolli!

ON THE BUBBLES DOES IT AGAIN – KARAKA HERE COMES

On The Bubbles (Brazen Beau-More Bubbles) is now undefeated in two 2yo starts after a comprehensive victory at Ellerslie today (10/1).

The Jamie Richards-trained Brazen Beau youngster sat three-wide throughout the 1200m contest but still found plenty of kick in the home straight to race away for a comfortable two and a half-length victory.

“He was very impressive today and as we wanted to ride him off the speed and teach him not to to be so one-dimensional,” Richards said.

On The Bubbles will now have an easy time before tackling the 2YO Karaka Million later this month.

10 January 2021.
