Team Thoroughbreds, along with bloodstock agent John Foote and Tony Gollan, have made their next exciting purchase: a Better Than Ready x Ultimo filly. She was purchased earlier this year from Yarramalong Park Stud's draught of yearlings - at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sales. No doubt you are aware BETTER THAN READY is the hottest first season sire in QLD, already producing 15 winners, and 2 stakes winners. It is going to be competitive buying of his stock at the upcoming QTIS sales so we were thrilled to have purchased the ULTIMO filly for only 70k.
Tony, John and Terry all loved her! She is beautiful, but powerful looking. She has a big hindquarter and strong shoulder, and has a real presence of the dam's sire EXCEED AND EXCELL in her.
She was very well bought and a perfect horse to race for the lucrative QTIS BONUS riches in QLD. A QTIS filly winning a Saturday Metropolitan QTIS bonus race takes home almost $80K for her connections. This early running type is also eligible for the QTIS Jewel which has a half a million-dollar 2yo race.
Tony will target her for the Inglis Millennium 2yo race worth $2 Million dollars.
The Inglis Millennium is a Restricted Listed race held at Warwick Farm Racecourse each year over 1200m and is part of a new-look Inglis Race Series to be worth a total of $8 million.
The race is fully restricted to horses that have been purchased through an Inglis sale ring and boasts a total prize pool of $2,000,000 making it the second richest juvenile race behind the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.
The 2020 Inglis Millennium will be run on Saturday the 8th of February, 2020 at Warwick Farm Racecourse.
The Inglis Millennium attracts horses purchased through an Inglis sale ring should the owners pay for the race series upon purchase.
She will nominated for the Golden Slipper and trained by Queensland's leading trainer, Tony Gollan, out of his Eagle Farm stable, and Team Thoroughbreds are excited to release this lovely filly to the public.
With half already sold of this wonderful type - we expect her to sell very quickly.
