Breeding and selling winners – that’s the end-game at Burnewang North.
We aim to offer everything of good quality that we breed. Since taking our first small yearling draft to the Melbourne Premier sale in 2009, we have achieved a 97% clearance rate.

ON THE BUBBLES
An attractive colt by Brazen Beau, On the Bubbles was identified at the weanling sale by Bevan Smith for Ben Kwok at the 2019 Great Southern Weanling Sale.
As vendors, we had identified that 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 at sale time. 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.
However, none of these issues have held him back and On The Bubbles has gone on to be a star in the Te Akau Racing teams 2yo crop.
Since his December 2020 winning debut, On The Bubbles secured the Karaka 2YO Million Listed race on 23 January 2021 to the delight of breeders, owners and trainers. He then went on to the G3 Matamata RC Slipper and G1 ARC Diamond Stakes in which he ran two great 2nds to star Snitzel colt, Sword of The State.
His day would come on 3rd April 2021 when he won the G1 Manawatu Sires Produce to get his much deserved Group 1 win on the board.
Again, Jamie Richards has said he has plenty more to offer as a 3yo and we look forward to his imminent Spring Return.
NEED I SAY MORE
A colt by first season sire No Nay Never, this chestnut was popular at the weanling sale on the Gold Coast in 2018. He was identified and purchased by Eoin Kemp from Kilgravin Lodge.
Prepped by Eoin for the 2019 Karaka Yearling sale, he was purchased by David Ellis and his powerful Te Aku Racing team. Trained by Jamie Richards, Need I Say More was undefeated as a 2yo including the Group 3 Waikato Stud Slipper over 1200m in which he beat a Group 1 stablemate Cool Aza Beel (Savabeel).
After a COVID-19 enforced lay off, he returned on 5th September as a 3yo and kept up his undefeated record, winning the Northland Breeders’ Stales (Group 3, 1200m) in a powerful front-running display.
His 2020 Spring kicked off on 5/9/20 with a win in the Group 3 Waikato RC Northland Breeders Stakes which led him into the G2 Hawke’s Bay Guineas where he ran a brave 4th to star Aegon. From there he went on to secure another G2, G3 and Listed win in a preparation that lasted until March 2021.
One of the most consistent horses racing in Australasia with a record of 9:7-0-0.
Jamie Richards has assured us he has his Group 1 win in him and we look forward to Spring 2021.
Transact (Dundeel-Rap Tale), was always a looker and was identified by Gai Waterhouse at the 2017 Magic Millions sale as a first season yearling of his sire Dundeel.
After identifying that the horse needed distance, Gai set him several tasks culminating in the time honoured VRC St Ledger on Anzac Day 2019. Transact relished the extra distance of the 2800m and valiantly led from start to finish to win the Listed Race for his numerous connections.
An injury enforced retirement sees Transact living an OTT life with Jasmine from Burnewang North’s staff.
A consistent performer for his large ownership group, Translator took us all on a ride when he ran bravely in the 2019 VRC Derby.
Since then he has found his distance around the 1600m – 1800m mark and has performed well and consistently throughout his preparations for trainer Nigel Blackiston.
His last preparation ended in April 2021 with a 1st and two seconds in town, so we look forward to his spring return.
A stand out colt in our 2015 Melbourne Premier draft, he was identified by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and secured for their interests.
They resold him through the HKJC International Sale and from there he has gone on to be a reliable performer on the Hong Kong racing circuit winning his connections in excess of HK $3.7m.
Niccolance (Nicconi-Nonchalance, by Lonhro), a handsome colt was purchased for $125,000 by former trainer Kevin Moses at the 2015 Magic Millions Yearling Sale. He has since moved to the yard of Peter & Paul Snowden. Four placed runs as a two-year-old, including a fourth in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, Niccolance returned as a 3YO and showed that a dry track suits him best with Class Records wins at Rosehill and Randwick during the Spring.
To date Niccolance has won his owners over $250,000 and an extra $30,000 in BOBS bonuses.
Ayers Rock (Nicconi-Vintage Rock) was purchased by the effervescent Shawn Mathrick at the 2014 Melbourne Premier Sale. Shawn has been confident of his ability from day one and Ayers Rock has gone on to break his maiden at Mildura on 3 August and followed that up with a 2nd in the Morphetville Guineas by the closest of margins on 12 September. His defining moment was at Flemington on 4 October with a stirring front-running victory in the $120,000 UCI Stakes over 1800m.
To date Ayers Rock has won his connections is excess of $250,000.
Apoloboom has proved to be a consistent warrior racing on the Queensland circuit for his Boom Racing connections.
With 11 career wins and amassing prizemoney of $280,000 Apoloboom has been a mainstay for his ownership group and has won major country features across the 2018/2019 season.
Fleur Fatale (Commands-Rose Ceremony) began her career in the best possible style with a sparkling success in the $150,000 VOBIS Gold Ingot over 1200m on 19 April 2015.
Tuned up for the race by initial trainer Brent Stanley and defying her longish odds, Fleur Fatale had a head of steam up all the way. It was just a matter of jockey Michael Walker finding the right opportunity in the straight to put her rivals away. It was no ordinary win.
An injury-enforced spell dictated that Fleur Fatale wasn’t seen again on raceday until Anzac Day 2016, this time from the Darren Weir stable, when she rocketed home for a close second over 1000m at Flemington. Second-up, she finished third over 1200m on the same track, taking her earnings to $141,600.
Fleur Fatale is one of the final few to be bred by the Hains’ family’s Kingston Park Stud and carries the gold and red colours immortalised by Kingston Town. With the cessation of horse activities at Kingston Park on the Mornington Peninsula, Rose Ceremony and Fleur Fatale became members of the Burnewang North family, the filly being raised at the Rochester property from where she and her dam are now managed. “She’s one of our own,” say the folks at Burnewang North.
Unfortunately injury has since curtailed Fleur’s exciting career which finished with her never unplaced in her 4 starts and with a total of $180,000 in prizemoney including bonuses.
Resistant earned $420,720 in a 29-start career for the syndicate which bought and raced him, finishing top-four in 17 of those races. He was a winner at Flemington, Caulfield and Morphettville, and of the Moe Mile & Tatura Cup, over distances from 1100m to 1600m. Resistant was stakes placed twice, finishing second in the lucrative Inglis Premier and third in the Listed Gibson-Carmichael Stakes at two. He was a close fourth in the Bendigo Guineas and earlier had finished fourth behind G1 Caulfield Guineas winner Long John – and ahead of Shamus Award – at Flemington. Another tough example of the Choisir breed, well done Resistant.
Resistant has been purchased by Asian connections and will finish his career in Mongolia.
Reckless Abandon (Nicconi-Apologies) was always a head turner and at the sale was a horse that Liam Birchley “had to have”. Reckless Abandon has to date won 5 starts for his connections and stakes of $136,000.
In his earlier career he seemed to relish the heavier tracks with his first two wins coming over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast on a heavy and soft track.
A further hat-trick of wins in the Autumn of 2016 took his career tally to 5.
A bargain buy for Richard Jolly, Draw Forward has fashioned a consistent sprinting career with five wins and six placings worth $220,883. She was sold to her current owners as a future breeding prospect midway through 2013 and transferred to Mick Price. Under Richard’s training she had made several successful raids to Melbourne from her South Australian base, winning three times at Moonee Valley and just being nosed out on a fourth occasion. Draw Forward was stakes-placed in the Redelva Stakes as well as finishing fourth in both the Lightning and Manihi Classic in Adelaide. She is due to have her first foal in 2016, by Deep Field.
MIRACLE TO ME
After training her dam Miracletto, John McArdle purchased Miracle To Me, her second foal, as a yearling and turned her into a worthwhile earner of $175,760 before her retirement as a four-year-old. Miracle To Me won at Flemington, Werribee and Sandown and ran creditably at black-type level, finishing fourth to Paximadia in the Poseidon Stakes at Flemington. Her back-running style often counted against her otherwise her record could well have been better.
Averau was the staying ‘find’ of the 2014/15 Melbourne summer, at one point winning five out of seven starts in a long campaign which stretched from August to February. The highlight was a romping success in the time-honoured Listed VRC Bagot Handicap at Flemington over 2800m, setting a new stamina benchmark for any of the progeny of Golden Slipper winning sire Stratum. Sandwiched amongst the skein of wins was a nose second in the Listed Werribee Classic. Altogether, Averau raced 19 times for seven wins, two seconds and two fourths for earnings of $270,400. She sustained a career-ending injury at her last start and moves on to a new career as a broodmare.
Ultra-consistent Rich River, trained by Darren Weir, has run in the top five in 21 of his 29 starts to date, winning five times. He gave his owners their first city success since 1988 when winning at Sandown Park at his fourth start. Other metropolitan wins have come at Moonee Valley and Morphettville. Despite being a son of Choisir and related to Golden Slipper winner Marauding, Rich River was born a Zabeel lookalike, his Melbourne-winning dam Galleta being a daughter of that champion sire. He was passed in at the 2012 Melbourne Premier Sale but out-of-the-ring negotiations saw him sold afterwards for $50,000. He has won up to 2400m and his earnings stand at $186,995.
ALL MY LOVING
A competitor who seems to defy her breeding, All My Loving reached her comfort zone when extended out to 2000m. She first recorded a four-lengths win to clear her maiden at Kembla Grange in early 2014 then beat older runners, same track and distance, next time out. Returning as a four-year-old, All My Loving weathered a long campaign of 13 starts from August through to April, winning in Sydney at the most unlikely distance – for a Not A Single Doubt – of 2400m. She is a consistent mare, with four wins and 21 top-four placings to date for $131,390. Her connections generously donate a portion of her earnings to the Breast Cancer Foundation whose pink and white ‘colours’ she races. All My Loving will now start her career as a Broodmare.
Paul Perry trained his famous father Choisir and noted the likeness when he took this colt home from the Scone Yearling Sale after The Life had been successfully pinhooked. From a speedy and precocious overseas family dripping with black-type, The Life campaigned initially around his home base of Newcastle, winning three races as a juvenile, but has ‘come to town’ on numerous occasions since and notched a city win at Warwick Farm in addition to another at his home track, Newcastle. His record stands at five wins for $114,135 in earnings.
Winner of six races (including at Randwick, Warwick Farm and Canterbury) and $338,650, from 1400m to 2000m, Stakes-placed Reigning is now campaigning from the stable of Eric Musgrove after earlier plying his trade from the Denham, Karakatsanis, Cummings & Waller stables. Reigning was well travelled as a young horse and ran respectably in races like the Queensland Derby and Grand Prix Stakes and, further defying his pedigree, managed to place at 3200m in Sydney, as well over 2400m and 2500m at Caulfield and Flemington respectively. With six wins and 17 top-four placings, Reigning is a good, durable Burnewang North advertisement.
