The Turangga Farm draft for the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale features 10 lovely youngsters by a wide range of sires – All Too Hard, Denman, Fighting Sun (2), Lonhro (2), More Than Ready (USA), Not a Single Doubt, Sepoy and Star Witness.

The draft includes a full brother to Group II winner Elite Falls (pictured), a full sister to Group III winner Mecir, a colt from Group I winner Ancient Song and the first foal of speedy juvenile stakes-winner Brilliant Bisc.


On Wednesday, Caloundra trainer Stuart Kendrick scored at Doomben with two year-old Swiss Ace filly Marseille En Fleur, and at Doomben on Saturday he won again with another Turangga Farm bred two year-old Swiss Ace filly in Hingus Rose.

Drawn in gate three with Tiffani Brooker on board, Hingus Rose was always up on the pace and did best in a thrilling finish to win the 1050 metre dash on a heavy track by a short half head.


Four year-old Encosta de Lago gelding Professor Brian scored his fourth win and third in succession at Kenilworth in South Africa on Saturday.

Trained by Joey Ramsden, Professor Brian scored by two and a quarter lengths over 1200 metres as favourite.

An $80,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Joey Ramsden/ Tawny Bloodstock, Professor Brian is one of three winners from Group III placed Eskaw, who died in 2014.



Scoring a dominant win at Doomben on Wednesday was promising two year-old filly Marseille En Fleur, who was bred by Turangga Farm.

The Stuart Kendrick trained filly was third at her first two starts and with race fitness on her side was able to plough through the heavy conditions to win the 1350 metre open juvenile event by nearly two lengths.


Bred and sold by Turangga Farm, the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained Farson ran his last race in Australia last Friday when third behind Hardham in the Group II MVRC Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley.

Prior to that the Snitzel gelding won three races in a row, including a win over New Zealand Derby runner-up Rising Red and culminating with victory in the Group II Autumn Classic (1800m) at Caulfield on February 25.
