Have we found the next Champ Elect?

Smart Missile x Foscat colt at the 2017 Gold Coast National Yearling Sale Smart Missile x Foscat colt at the 2017 Gold Coast National Yearling Sale

While Queensland sweltered in heatwave conditions, auction bidding was feverish on high quality stock at the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

Last year the top-priced yearling was Chauffeur, who sold for $1.6 million and went on to place second in the 2017 Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Adrenaline also had a runner in the feature race: Stakes-winner Champ Elect who we purchased for $95,000 from Attunga Stud. 

In 2017, two yearlings were sold for the top sales price of $1.3 million: one by Redoutes Choice and the other by More Than Ready. The average sales price was more than $200,000, up on last year.

We inspected more than 150 thoroughbreds before selecting three that fit the Adrenaline mould: athletic yearlings with strong shoulders and hindquarters, a fluid action, and the scope to run early. Here’s a preview of the next crop of Adrenaline racehorses. Shares are on sale soon!

FOXWEDGE x Authoress filly 

This filly has pedigree-plus, making her an enticing racing and breeding prospect. She is a daughter of the impressive FOXWEDGE, who was a worthy foe for some of the best sprinters in the world and competed against BLACK CAVIAR, HAY LIST, BUFFERING, SEPOY, and SMART MISSILE.

FOXWEDGE is a top-10 freshman sire in Australia who is really making his presence felt now his first crop are aged three – he is currently ranked no.2 on the Second Season Sires Premiership and leads in number of Stakes-winners to date.

Our FOXWEDGE filly is out of Gr.2 placed mare Authoress, who has produced four runners for four winners, including Stakes-placed Sense of Hite and Storyline (Gr.2 placed). Based on her admirable breeding, this FOXWEDGE x Authoress filly has the scope to be a very valuable broodmare if she can achieve on track when racing.

SMART MISSILE x Foscat colt 

This colt is magnificent value! SMART MISSILE is a hot shot stallion who won the Freshman Sires Premiership and is now on track to claim the Second Sires Premiership with 29 individual winners so far. The dam of this colt, Foscat, is a metropolitan quality mare that has won – and then bred horses that have won – city-class races. 

This colt has been bred on a desirable cross that has produced Gr.1 winners FOXWEDGE and IRISH LIGHTS, and this SMART MISSILE x Foscat colt combines pedigree with impressive physical conformation. 

CHOISIR x Global Start filly

Could this be the next CHAMP ELECT for Adrenaline?? You’ll be struck by the similarities between Stakes-winning 2yo CHAMP ELECT and this CHOISIR filly out of Global Start. Both fillies have huge powerful hindquarters, perfect for explosive speed on track.

This CHOISIR x Global Start filly, however, comes from a dam-line of high speed, suggesting she too will become a sprinter. With a deep girth, she looks to have the large heart and lung capacity required to be a genuine contender over the exhilarating shorter distances.
