Fabrizio’s never looked better ahead of possible Melbourne trip
FABRIZIO is a good trialler but his win at last Tuesday’s Randwick heats was the equal, if not better, of anything he’s produced any morning, anywhere, anytime.
None of his seven rivals share his class and C.V. but Fabrizio won like he should have — easily.
One would assume that Fabrizio is headed down to Melbourne for something at the back end of the carnival and/ or with Villiers as his main summer mission.
There were some impressive performers among the two-year- old’s who went around not least Khan look-a-like COSIMO who came from last of the five to win in a head-bobber but with so much like about him; desire mostly.
Cosimo was bought by James Harron for $260,000 at the Inglis Classic Sale so one would suspect that he’ll be aimed at the $ 500,000 Inglis Nursery (1000m) Randwick on December 16.
Cosimo is a son of Written Tycoon (sire of Harron’s Golden Slipper winner Capitalist) and grandson of Blue Diamond Prev/Prelude winner and Stakes runner-up Halibery.
Another tremendously impressive twoyearold out of these heats was ROYAL WITNESS, trained by John Sargent, and bought for the bargain price of $ 60,000 at the MM National Sale.
Pretty cheap when you consider he’s by Star Witness and the third Dam is Snippet’s Lass; dam of Snitzel.
Royal won 735m heat by 6-lens.
Two other two-year- old’s to mention before moving on; REELEM IN RUBY (Pierro) and ATOMIC SUNRISE (Smart Missile) — both Triple Crown/Snowden Racing productions.
It was a good morning’s work for Ron Quinton who would have been delighted with the respective trials of BARNABAS (first), DUCHESS PEDRILLE (first) and ALLEGHENY (a nose second).
We have been talking up Barnabas in recent weeks; this five-year- old son of Zariz (one start only) is ready to win when next produced.
Ditto the Peter Robl trained MUSIC ADDITION who won his debut at Gosford at $ 61 then ran two very creditable races in town after that.
The three-year- old is by Your Song whom Robl steered to his famous 5-lens win in the BTC Cup in 2013.
Godolphin were huge players at these heats with not a bad trialler among them.
We singled out the following (in no special order); TORPENHOW, CLIVEDEN, RADCLIFFE, INTUITION, FLOW, STONE and a couple of three-year- old fillies by Lonhro that need special attention — UNWISE SANITY.
We know the John Thompson trained KISSING GAME goes pretty well so a big thumbs up to Sanity for being able to beat her and at her very first public trial.
Sanity is out of Group 3 winner Firm whose four winning foals include Group 3 winner Trim (also by Lonhro), dam of Manicure who goes well.
Our others from these heats are PIERATA, AQUA D’IVINA, QUEEN MISTY and SEDAZNER.
