A purple patch being enjoyed by Yarraman Park’s Hinchinbrook continued on Monday at Warwick Farm with a tenacious win for two year-old gelding Wild Heart, a $170,000 Magic Millions purchase for Vinery Stud from the Turangga Farm draft.

Trained by Team Hawkes, Wild Heart was a close second on debut at Geelong last month to promising youngster Andaz, who dead heated at Flemington on Saturday with another Hawkes runner in Royal Phoenix.


A knockout winner of the Group I VRC Emirates Stakes back in 2004 for Stuart Ramsey’s Turangga Farm, high class mare Sky Cuddle featured at Randwick on Saturday as the dam of promising two year-old filly Champagne Cuddles, who returned successfully from a long layoff.

Prepared by Bjorn Baker, Champagne Cuddles won easily on debut last October in the $150,000 ATC Pierro Plate and was fancied for the Magic Millions, but was forced to the sidelines not long after.


Turangga Farm can lay claim to having sold one of the all-time greats into Hong Kong in Champion Miler Able Friend and while promising four year-old My Darling may never quite reach those heights, he is a progressive horse for the John Size stable.

A $26,000 Inglis Classic purchase from the Turangga Farm draft for John Thompson, Mossman gelding My Darling was sold into Hong Kong after winning his only trial at Randwick in December 2014.


Hong Kong champion Able Friend has been retired and will return to Australia where he will spend his days at the Ramsey family's Turangga Farm in NSW where he was born.

Able Friend (Shamardal (USA) x Ponte Piccolo) was sold by Turangga Farm for $550,000 at the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale to George Moore Bloodstock.

He joined the stable of John Moore, going on to be the highest-rated horse to race in Hong Kong.


Inglis is proud to announce it will be conducting a dispersal sale of one of Australia’s leading thoroughbred studs, Turangga Farm, on Sunday July 23.

An outstanding line-up of broodmares, all of which are in foal, will be offered as well as a reduction sale of weanlings and race fillies, giving buyers the opportunity to enter into some of Australia’s best families.
