Okay I have done my horses to watch for each category and the early selections for the spring group 1's but my internet connection keeps cutting out and so I will have to post that at a later stage, but I thought I would steal furious's thunder Big smile and set the thread up now before the first stakes races of the season.

Hopefully I can post the ones to watch during the next week.

Oh I have favourites but can only hope they step up to the mark for the season. My pickes of recent years from the sales have not been at the top of the tree.  I'm blaming not getting to sales with covid.  You can only see so much online.

 Of course Espiona, Illation, Artorius, Paulele, Bruckner, Get in the Spirit, Xtravagant Star, He's Xceptional, Cythera, Quang Tri, Giannis, Lofty Strike, Ranges and  others which I've followed from the sales are high on the list of ones I look for.  

Almost anything from the Juliet line!  That's a given and include Quang Tri who showed some late season form.

But I really want the Golden Slipper winner to come out and at least be pushed out over 1600m.  Same with the She's Extreme.  I don't want to see them endlessly going around over 1200m.  I even hope to see the same with Best of Bordeaux who like Anamoe was a great run in the slipper.

Anyway early days yet and haven't decided who to follow.  I hope Anamoe comes out and delivers but his mind wasn't always on the job last season and that will be a worry if he continues that way.

But hey the good horses are starting to trial so who cares.  Some good racing is just a few weeks away.

Okay lets see who we are looking at seeing over the next season.

Obviously no 2yo's and I have decided to split the categories into Group 1 contenders and non group 1 contenders. I have also placed the 3yo's into one group so the males and females are in the one group.

I am also still very wary of trusting the Sydney autumn form and last Saturday's Missile Stakes has done nothing to quell those feelings as Forbidden Love, Nimalee and Hilal were not great in admittedly an unsuitable race Confused

Lets get into it.

3yo's. 

Group 1's - Daumier, Best Of Bordeaux, Sejardan, Jacquinot, Rise Of the Masses, Semillion, Brosnan, Sebonack, Political Debate, Letsrollthedice, Williamsburg, Sharp'N'Smart, Basquiat, Owen County, Man In The Mirror, Aft Cabin, Shalatin (needs it dry), Showcourt, Yaki Ishi, Magic, Amelia's Jewel, Fireburn, She's Extreme, Sheeza Belter, See You In Heaven, Seven Veils, Coolangatta, Russian Conquest (needs it dry), Dashing Legend, Paris D'or, I'm Lovinya, Waltz On By, Lambada.

Non Group 1's - Ebhaar, Cythera, Miss Revolutionary, Nanagui, Swiss Exile, Exo Lady, Miss Roseiano, Man In The Mirror, Lethal Thoughts, Tijuana, Crossroads, Eye Of The Eagle, Twin Stars, Brereton, Merchant Prince, Rampant Lion, Seven Sisters, English Riviera, Lady Laguna, Miss Faberge, He's Heaven, Ojai, Zambezi River, Greece, Great Barrier Reef. 

4yo's. 

Group 1's - Illation, Anamoe, Converge, Alegron, Benaud, Barb Raider, Pinarello, Dark Destroyer, Character, Gypsy Goddess, Hinged, Fangirl, Espiona, Profondo, Bon's A Pearla, Lightsaber, Startantes, Paulele, Overpass, Mazu (very interested to see how he goes on a drier surface), Artorius, Vilana, La Crique, Yaphet, Prince Of Boom, Sword Of State, In The Congo, Argentia, Zouzarella, Jamaea.

Non Group 1's - Party For One, A Very Fine Red, Mr Mozart, Flying Crazy, Battleton, Seradess, Ingratiating, General Beau, Glint Of Hope, Detonator Jack, Straight Aaron, Le Villi, Heresy, Hellfast, Zapateo, Arcaded, Generation, Prix De Turn, Pinstriped, So You See, Yearning (just hope she stays in Melbourne), Ranch Hand, Maurice's Medad, Captivant, Hilal, Pascero, Zethus, Bacchanalia, King Of Sparta, Spirit Of Gaylard, Brigantine, Seradess, Extreme Warrior, Kiss Sum, Alpine Edge, Military Expert.

Older Horses.

Group 1's - Nature Strip, Eduardo, Masked Crusader, Marabi, September Run, Halvorsen, Rothfire, Duais, Montefilia, Zaaki, Numerian, Cascadian, Inspirational Girl, Mr Brightside, I'm Thunderstruck, Ayrton, Apache Chase, Sheraz, Surefire, Knights Order, Stockman, Maximal, Private Eye, Forbidden Love, Nimalee, Turaath, Tofane, Sierra Sue, Count De Rupee, Mo'unga, Huetor, Hungry Heart, Levante, Lost And Running, Gold Trip, Mugatoo.    

Non Group 1's - Taksu, Annavisto, Yonce, Flying Mascot, La Gai Soleil, Snapdancer, Najmaty, Stageman, Juan Diva, Letzbeglam, Laws Of Indices, Irish Sequel, Ellsberg, Mirra Vision, Kissonallforcheeks, Foxy Frida, Aramayo, Milford, Poland, Mount Popa, Belluci Babe, Bankers Choice, Just Folk, Promise Of Success, Ballistic Lover, Emanate, Marboosha, Steinem, Nonconformist, Lunar Flare, Kemalpasa, Scallopini, The Astrologist. 

I think we have a good group of horses from those categories to have a season of success.

Now for the spring group 1's. I will give a 4yo and an older horse selection.

Winx Stakes - Anamoe & Duais
Memsie Stakes - Illation & Apache Chase
Makybe Diva Stakes - Inspirational Girl & Mo'unga (I am not sure any 4yo will be ready for this race although horses like Lightsaber and Pinstriped could win)
George Main Stakes - Converge & Hungry Heart
Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes - Lightsaber & Sierra Sue
Moir Stakes - Paris D'or, Paulele & Eduardo
Underwood Stakes - La Crique/Dark Destroyer (one of the NZ'ers) & Numerian
Golden Rose - Daumier, Jacquinot & Best Of Bordeaux
Metropolitan - Alegron & Sheraz
Flight Stakes - She's Extreme & Seven Veils
Epsom - Converge & Hungry Heart
Turnbull Stakes - One of the NZ'ers & Zaaki
Spring Champion - Showcourt & Sharp'N Smart
Toorak Hcp - Barb Raider & Laws Of Indices
Might & Power Stakes - Anamoe & Mo'unga

VRC Oaks - Seven Sisters & winner of the Wakeful
Mackinnon Stakes - Mo'Unga & Heutor

Cantala is no longer on Derby Day mate, it has been moved to Stakes day and renamed the Champions Mile with an increased purse and changed to WFA conditions.

The MacKinnon is now also called the Champions Stakes and the sprint the Champions Sprint.

Voyager, your George Main/Epsom tip Hungry Heart is already officially retired to the breeding barn - so you’ll have to find a sub for her.

For all those worried about inbreeding to Danehill Zoukerino is another one bred 3m x 3f.  Like Giga Kick (inbred to the 8f family through Redoute's, Nijinsky (twice), Try My Best, THe Minstrel and dam Rekindled Applause) Zoukerino has four lines of his female line 7-a through Danehill (twice), Bletchingly and his dam Walk with Attitude.

While a third three year old winner yesterday - Bound for Home carries the cross of siblings Canny Lad and Canny Lass and Danehill 4m x 4m.  I picked her from the sales as she also decends from Juliet and I do keep my eyes open for them.  THis is the family of Silent Witness who was a son of Jade Cherie's full sister Jade Tiara.  Also I've found in the past the line likes Encosta de Lago (She will Reign) and Fastnet Rock (Catchy) blood and I didn't mind the full sibling cross and Mr Prospector double doesn't hurt either.  I'm hoping this filly can go on to the Oaks but no doubt she will be kept to sprints.  Pity as plenty of strength in her pedigree.

This line of Juliet gave us Hi Jinx (Melbourne Cup), Shifnal's Pride (Royal S, George Adams), Fair Filou (ARC Queen Elizabeth H, Avondale Cup), Rainfall (Avondale Cup, Royal S) etc.

Talking about good pedigrees Mr Brightside shows how good families might bide their time for a few generations but they come back.  The funny thing is he's by the other brother.  Helmet and Epaulette were great gallopers and Bullbars picked up a stakes race so he had some ability but he has a very good son in Mr Brightside.

Then once again we bemoan the early demise of Tavistock this time because of him showing ability as a sire of dams.  But what happened with Keepable (Keeper from Delia's Choice).  Only three named and one to race with no wins.  Sent to Tavistock twice and Zabeel who sired her one runner she was just an example that even good blood sometimes just doesn't come through.

Her dam Delia's CHoice (Sir Tristram) had one G1 winner in Foxwood (Captain Cook Stakes) and of her four named daughters it was only Foxwood who became a dam to a stakes winner.

But the next dam was a great broodmare producing four stakes winners to Sir Tristram including the G1 winners Gurner's Lane (Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup), Sovereign Red (Australian Derby, Rothman's 100,000, VRC Derby, Underwood S, Western Mail Classic, Caulfield GUineas and runner up to Kingston Town in a Cox Plate) and Trichelle (Marlboro Cup).

It is to be seen if Mr Brightside can reach those heights but he's on his way.

Talking about female lines.  The decendants of White and Blue (GER) 1876 include the great stallion Savabeel.  But back in the 1960's it produced a two year old mud lark called Pago Pago who was sold to America where he stood at stud before coming home to Australia in 1980.  His name to well and truly out there in the world thoroughbred pedigree thanks to Dancing Brave his Arc de Triomphe winner who is a son of Pago Pago's granddaughter Navajo Princess.  Dancing Brave's full sister Jolypha (Prix de Diane G1) is the granddam of NZ based Redwood (Northern Dancer Turf S G1).

So it is interesting to see Calypso Reign by far the best winner by Barbados (great grandson of equally great Emancipation) come out and represent the Pago Pago female branch of White and Blue's Australian family.

Mr Brightside was good yesterday I'll give you that but given the Lawrence is now clearly the third wheel for resuming horses behind the Memsie and Warwick Stakes, as shown by the quality of the field behind him, I'd like to see him do it against a better field before calling him a top liner.

Just pointing out he is far superior to recent generations of a great family which is hopefully on the way back.
