Opening his account at Turffontein in South Africa on Thursday for the powerful Mike de Kock stable was three year-old More Than Ready (USA) gelding Tharoos, whose full brother will be offered at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale next week by Turangga Farm.
Tharoos scored by a long neck over 1200 metres ending a frustrating run of three minor placings.
A $400,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Shadwell from the Turangga Farm draft, Tharoos is a full brother to Group II winner and Golden Slipper place-getter Elite Falls and is the fourth winner from Group III winner Niagara Falls.
Turangga Farm sold a filly by More Than Ready from Niagara Falls last year at Magic Millions to Katsumi Yoshida for $260,000 and will offer her current yearling at Newmarket next week as Lot 260.
He is another stunning individual by champion sire More Than Ready, the sire of over 160 stakes-winners!
