MISS CARBONI LIVES UP TO THE WRAPS
The Burnewang bred Miss Carboni (Helmet – Gold Digger Miss) was a graduate of the 2017 Melbourne Premier sale and always promised to live up to her good looks. Purchased by Johnny McKeever for Archie Alexander she is now raced by OTI Racing and others including ourselves. After a strong 2nd in her maiden run at Terang on 23/11 (in horrendous weather conditions), the filly stepped up to 1300m at Stawell on Saturday and broke her maiden convincingly. We look forward to her progressing this prep.
CATEGORIC WINS WELL AT NEWCASTLE
The Chris Waller, Star Thoroughbreds owned CATEGORIC (Zoustar – Thekatcamehome) fought on strongly to win over 1400m at Newcastle on Saturday. Ridden superbly by Kathy O’Hara the gelding showed promising signs with a strong finish. This is a special horse to us as it was selected for Denise by the late Steve Brem, who also selected the mare on our behalf at Keenelands.

Another Burnewang North-bred Rapture Miss (Smart Missile-Rap Tale) making her first start for six months, rocketed home from last place at the top of the straight to win the Class 2 over 1435 metres, a great effort first-up. This enigmatic mare hasn’t been further back than 5th in 10 career starts; there’s no doubt the ability is there and full credit to trainer Matthew Dale. Rapture Miss is the seventh Burnewang North-bred winner in August to date.
Dashtorush (Sebring-Limoncelli) appreciated every metre of the 1660 metres at Moruya today 19 August to break his maiden.

Three days earlier, Podium Bound (Equiano-Chloe Rose) scored at Coonamble.
Our first winner for the new season! Burnewang North-bred and part-owned mare Aphrodite Rock (Commands-Vintage Rock) scored her second victory from just four starts on the Geelong synthetic today 3 August.

Yulong (China) winner Di Wang Feng Fan is by Hard Spun and is one of four Burnewang North-bred winners out of the Giant’s Causeway mare Apologies. Di Wang Feng Fan was a $90,000 2015 Inglis Classic Sale yearling and was exported to China unraced shortly thereafter.
PRES DE TOI DELIVERS FOR THE PUNTERS
Promising filly Pres de Toi (Helmet-Nonchalance) lived up to her favouritism when winning over 1400m at Cranbourne tonight (April 13).
Having her second start in her current campaign, Pres de Toi was slow to step away in the fillies and mares’ contest but recovered and was on the backs of the leaders making the home turn. Once into the clear, she drove through for a comfortable success despite giving weight to all her rivals.
Though her previous win had been over 2000m, Pres de Toi was made favourite on the strength of her formlines in her first preparation last spring. They included a third placing behind Cliff’s Edge at Caulfield and finishing less than six lengths astern of Bring Me Roses and subsequent Group 1 winner Hiyaam at Group 2 level at Flemington. The big, rangy Burnewang North-bred and part-owned filly looks to have good prospects as a middle distance galloper.
Pres de Toi was an $80,000 purchase by the Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra training partnership, in conjunction with Group One Bloodstock, at the 2016 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.

GOOD THINGS COME IN THREES!
Good things come in threes!
Burnewang North Pastoral had the pleasure of watching three of its products – all fillies – win on the same today today, bringing the total for the last five weeks to 10 victories.
At Ballarat, Double The Magic (3f Magic Albert-She’s Double Gold) – Burnewang North’s 100th individual winner when winning her previous start at Cranbourne on 9 March – made no race of the fillies’ and mares’ 1600m. Camped behind the leader, she strode clear in the straight to win by five and a half lengths. Darren Weir has her flying!
Up at Grafton, two regular servants got the job done. First, Capital City (5m Wanted Elleandee) took that track’s fillies’ and mares’ sprint decisively, recording her fifth win.
Rounding off the day was Greselin (5m Bernardini-Polar) who won the sprint handicap over 1209m in a slick 1:09.81, her sixth success.
While Double The Magic is just in her first racing preparation, Capital City and Greselin are hardy campaigners with 76 starts between them. Tough, sound mares still with the zest for racing.
Greselin and Double The Magic were both sold by Burnewang North at a VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale in Melbourne which serves as a reminder that this year’s sale is barely three weeks away (22 April). Burnewang North has a five horse draft by seriously hot sires – by I Am Invincible, Written Tycoon, Zoustar, Dundeel and Kuroshio.

TE AMO, WE LOVE YOU TOO !
In her brief career, Te Amo (Not A Single Doubt-Je t’Aime) has covered a lot of territory. These days settled into the stable of leading Queensland trainer Toby Edmonds, she provided an immediate reward with a big first-up win at Ipswich today over 1200m.
Trained initially in Sydney, she placed twice as an early two-year-old then was flown off to New Zealand to contest the Karaka Million, albeit with no luck. She reappeared last winter with a placed performance at Canterbury then was not seen again until last December when placed in both her starts.
Her transfer to the Toby Edmonds yard occurred not long after that and the trainer produced her in sparkling condition for a 3.8 lengths romp at Ipswich as an odds-on favourite with Jeff Lloyd in the saddle.
She races for Segenhoe Stud, where she was actually foaled. Segenhoe bought the filly as a yearling at Karaka for NZ$220,000 after Burnewang North had sold her as a weanling to New Zealand pinhookers for A$90,000 at the 2015 Great Southern Weanling Sale. We are delighted for Segenhoe with whom Burnewang North has a close working relationship. Segenhoe has been the seasonal base for our mares nominated each year to visit Hunter Valley stallions; the inimitable Peter O’Brien and his team have worked tremendously hard on our behalf and provide great feedback. Here’s hoping they enjoy more wins with this quick filly.
Te Amo is a prime example of a highly quality weanling providing a very solid pinhooking profit, something Burnewang North has been proudly putting into the market in recent times. This year, in Melbourne in June, Burnewang North’s entire 2017 foal crop will be on offer. It’s stacked with similar opportunities including a Street Boss half-brother to Te Amo.
Te Amo is the first named foal of Je t’Aime, a daughter of Bianconi. Je t’Aime is a half-sister to Group 1 VRC Oaks winner Arapaho Miss, in turn the dam of popular stayer De Little Engine ($749,540). Te Amo is Not A Single Doubt’s 536th individual winner, hitting at a most impressive 71.7% winners/starters strike rate.

ROYAL ADVANCE: QUICK MARCH!
Royal Advance (Commands-Royal Lineup) began his career in the best possible fashion when posting a clear-cut win over 1100m at Hawkesbury today.
The Aquis Farm-owned and Gai Waterhouse/Adrian Bott-trained three-year-old was bred by Burnewang North Pastoral and purchased by Aquis at the 2016 Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale for $150,000.
The son of the late Commands is the fourth winner produced by the city-winning Viscount mare Royal Lineup and is a younger brother to the very capable Melbourne trained King’s Command, winner to date of seven races and $302,685. Since Royal Advance, Royal Lineup has produced the two-year-old filly Divine Diva, by Sebring, in training with the Hayes/Hayes/Dabernig team at Lindsay Park, a yearling colt also by Sebring destined for New Zealand, and a Written Tycoon weanling filly to be offered for sale mid-year.
Royal Lineup belongs to the deep black-type family founded in Australia by Gainesville (CAN) from whom descend 14 stakeswinners to the current time, prominent among which are globe-trotting Criterion ($7.4 million), his half-brother and recent Group 2 winner Comin’ Through ($606,570), Godolphin’s Malice ($579,600) and Group 1 performer Bull Point ($547,000)

100 – A MAGICAL NUMBER
We breed them to win races. There’s no greater satisfaction. Hence it was a milestone for Burnewang North Pastoral when Double The Magic (Magic Albert-She’s Double Gold) scored at Cranbourne tonight, becoming the 100th individual winner bred at the Rochester property since Burnewang set out on the journey from small beginnings a decade ago.
The first winner bred was the ill-fated stakes-placed Flaxton (Falvelon-Hello Boys) who was bought by New Zealand interests from our first Melbourne Premier Sale draft in 2009 and won on his debut, as a two-year-old, at Riccarton in February 2010.
Double The Magic, a three-year-old filly trained by Darren Weir, had been knocking on the door with a couple of recent placings and saw out the 1500m event from an on-pace position with plenty of determination. She was sold as a weanling for $15,000 at the 2015 Melbourne Great Southern Weanling Sale. Burnewang North is going to have a very significant presence at the 2018 edition of the same sale taking place this June.
She’s Double Gold, the dam of our history-maker, is an American-bred daughter of the outstanding filly Arborea whose six wins included the Group 1 VRC Oaks and VATC Thousand Guineas. She’s Double Gold has produced four winners including stakes-placed Meshmaker and Lola De Oro, a winner as recently as 25 February at Ballarat.

MORE HAPPY DAYS AT THE VALLEY
Progressive four-year-old Good Days (Artie Schiller-Vintage Rock, by Thunder Gulch) scored his second win in six weeks when he outstayed his rivals over 2200m in the Class 4 event at Happy Valley (Hong Kong) on Wednesday night (7 March).
Second choice in the betting, Good Days was given a rail-hugging ride just off the pace by ex-pat Aussie jockey Nash Rawiller. When the sprint home started in earnest from the 600m, Good Days was caught flat-footed momentarily but Rawiller cajoled him to pick up the bit and the gelding found his way between the two leaders to win with authority.
Good Days’s maiden win at Sha Tin in January (see article below) was over 2000m so he is showing a preference for middle distances, as did his dam Vintage Rock who was a close third in the 2009 Canberra Cup behind Colin Little’s $2 million earner Blutigeroo.
