I've got three I'm following from the MM sales in the 2yo - Invincible Star, Houtzen and Cellargirl but I don't think any of them are swoopers!

No I pick on pedigrees as long as I like the horse.  I think I'm having the best day ever.  Stratum Star, Houtzen, Eckstein, Biddi Babe and a G1 in New Zealand with Hall of Fame.  On a more minor scale Cogliere won in Sydney to cape off the day.

Yep can't afford to buy but just as much pleasure seeing them win.  My two year olds last year didn't fire so much but this year I've Houtzen and Invincible Star out of the MM and She Will Reign out of the Inglis sales.  What a difference a year makes.

Well I have so I guess something rubbed off.  Don't know the horse faults only pedigrees but sometimes everything comes together.

And the winners board is:

CARIOCA $9,435,000
FURIOUS $7,708,500
DIZZY $7,615,000
BANJO $3,660,000
SECOND CHANC $1,912,500
STORM SIREN $1,012,500

Well done Carioca!

Will take a look at the Autumn Carnival and will likely put together a combined Melbourne/Sydney comp - possibly focusing on the Group Ones if everyone is keen - think the format works a bit better when there is an ongoing leaderboard Star

Yep I cheated a bit picking Houtzen but well I had a good excuse!  Carioca found some good longshots.
