The Sires Produce – 17th March 2017

Sires Produce

Pace Makes The Race

Eliana Selnes takes the ride on St Simon Racing’s high quality son Captain’s Quest, who shot to prominence with a gutsy win over Bigger Sin in the prelude. Addie Over Skipper is trained by crowsrock, who knows a good thing when he sees one. A huge runner. Woodchucker’s lightly raced and exciting Talent By Blood colt Hercules Starz takes his first plunge into deep waters after a very good second to Addie Over Skipper in the preview last time. 

Bigger Sin jumps from gate #4 and with his natural pace could stretch all of jockey Brandon Musolf’s patience – who has a very different racing style. Hard Call was doing his best work late, and need to be watched. Village Idiot is a very honest horse with very consistent form, will appreciate the distance based on his last few runs and he must be in with a huge shout.

It’s a hard decision to ignore any runner from the Rawhide stable, he has Unexpected Ice here, and the filly could be the dark horse in the race. Eratosthenes looks to have plenty of scope to build on his third in the preview.

1. Captain’s Quest

2yo colt from St Simon Racing, Career earnings: $270,000
Overall rating: Acceptable(43) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by St Simon Racing
Lineage:By Secret Aurora out of Estimate

Stable comments: – “Very happy with the Prelude run, but it came at a cost, he picked up a knock. The final will be a cracker, with some top stables in it.”

2. Addie Over Skipper

2yo colt from Addictive Racing, Career earnings: $241,500
Overall rating: Acceptable(44) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by Happy Skipper Stable
Lineage:By Nihilator out of Doji Jupiter Czar

Stable comments: – “Shaping up to be a top race this one. First time training a short runner but am really pleased with how Skipper is going. Top run in the Sires Preview and has trained on well since then. Facing some tough competition with Captains Quest and Hercules Starz the pick of the others I think.”

3. Hercules Starz

2yo colt from woodchuckers, Career earnings: $120,750
Overall rating: Satisfactory(45) – Competitive
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by Red Sox
Lineage:By Talent By Blood out of Princess Rose

Stable comments: – “My baby colt about to run his first cup final. By name is as strong as a ox but he just a long legged big lump looking to muscle up. Clearly the fast finisher pair of Captain’s Quest and Addie Over Skipper will power over the top late so my fella will try and give some cheek to his fellow colts for awhile.

4. Bigger Sin

2yo colt from Sin666, Career earnings: $135,000
Overall rating: Acceptable(44) – Early sprinter
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by Sin666
Lineage:By C’est Coupez out of Bigger Ebano

5. Hard Call

2yo colt from Raspadora Lodge, Career earnings: $67,500
Overall rating: Adequate(38) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by 5 Card Stud
Lineage:By Zorino out of Fishy Player

Stable comments: – “Ran as well as I could have hoped for first up, but there’s a significant class rise in this race, which will make things tough for him.”

6. Village Idiot

2yo colt from DR Stables, Career earnings: $242,611
Overall rating: Acceptable(40) – Unpredictable
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by DR Stables
Lineage:By Willo The Wisp out of Fridas Jeebus

Stable comments: – “Village Idiot will have no problem lasting the distance. The question is can he stay close enough early without burning himself out to be able to use his late closing kick. Being unpredictable you never know how he’s going to run. If recent form is any indication he should run a decent race and be in the top 5. Captain’s Quest looks to be the horse to beat, but this is a quality field of 2yo’s and anything can happen. Good luck to all.”

7. Splendor

2yo colt from Status Epilepticus, Career earnings: $60,375

Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by Status Epilepticus

Overall rating: Acceptable(43) – Competitive
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by Sootie
Lineage:By Zig And Zag out of Annie Dark Chilld

Stable comments: – “Not sure about this one, disappointing run in the Prelude and has been far outperformed by stablemate Skipper on the Training Track. Jockey change should help but needs to improve considerably to be any chance.”

Overall rating: Acceptable(40) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by Lost In The Fog

2yo colt from Priceless Speedsters, Career earnings: $0
Overall rating: Satisfactory(45) – Breakaway
Born:Fri 6th Jan 2017, bred by woodchuckers

Stable comments: – “The Sires Produce looks to be a true pick’em race. The field is pretty much evenly matched across the board but jockey RI’s will be key. If Limp Pick Slo Poke reaches the rail early in the 2qtr he will have a good chance to place.”
