Three lovely yearlings have joined the stable following Bateup Racing’s visit to the Magic Millions Sale in Adelaide 2 weeks ago.
Starcraft x Sublissime Gelding – “Stubby”
This horse was always going to be on my radar being the half-brother to Monegal and Foxtrot Bravo.
The Saturday after I bought him, Stubby’s purchase price looked even cheaper when our very own Monegal earned black type, winning the Group 3 Epona Stakes!
late November foal, he is already 420kg but is going to develop
further. He is a good bodied horses with a good forearm and gaskins. He
is still open in the knees and “bum high” – signs that he still has some
growing to do. He has a good overstep and a quality head.
I have already had “Stubby” gelded. X-rays were “low risk” with time and scoping was Grade 1.
He is currently spelling at Kooringal Stud and will head to the breakers in 2 – 3 months’ time.
Sooboog x Ginal Filly – “Nali”
I have always liked the Sooboog progeny and have been keen to get one in the stables.
“Nali” is a good bodied filly with depth and is a great mover. She is a “racy” looking filly that is still going to develop further.
She is the third foal out of GInali who was a city winning mare.
Her three foals to date are all by Sooboog. The first is now a 3yo called Aliboog. and has won 2 recent barrier trials on the Gold Coast.
X-rays were “low risk” and scoping was Grade 1
Nali is currently spelling at Kooringal Stud and will head to the breakers in approximately 4-8 weeks’ time.

Invader x Angora Gelding – “Andy”
I absolutely loved this boy!
He is very typical of the Invader breed with a short back, good hindquarter, good gaskins and the “Invader” head. He is also a very nice mover with a great overstep.
“Andy” is out of the proven producing mare Angora who’s now had 10 winners from 11 to race. Two of her foals have won since the catalogue was printed.Her 3 year old “Otillie” by Air Force Blue won at Hawkesbury last week for the Waterhouse / Bott stable. Her 4yo Asserting by Super One also joined the family winning list, notching up 2 victories in recent months.
Angora’s 10 winning foals have so far included 2 stakes horses. The Stakes winning Canali and the Stakes placegetter Vilayet.
Angora herself was a good race mare winning as a 2yo and being Stakes placed in both the Reginald Allen Handicap and the Illawarra 2yo Classic.
I’ve already had “Andy” gelded. His X-rays were “low risk” and scoping was Grade 1
Andy is currently spelling at Kooringal Stud and will head to the breakers in approximately 4-8 weeks’ time.
