On the eve of the 2013 Magic Millions Yearling Sale, exciting first season sire Northern Meteor has weighed in with another impressive debut winner. Aided by a brilliant front running ride from Dynamic jockey, Tommy Berry 2yo filly SWING VOTE won impressive at Warwick Farm on Saturday.
Like many of the Northern Meteor bred, she is strongly built and showed us that Northern Meteor is already cementing his credentials as a sire not to be messed with. Jumping swiftly from barrier six, she made every post a winner and led throughout, hitting the line strongly to win the 1000 metre dash by a length and a quarter over last start winner Twilight Royale.
Northern Meteor has started his career in spectacular fashion already securing three winners on track from just 8 runners at a strike rate of 37.5%. Swing Vote joins Ticket to Toorak and Northern Glory as horses sired by Northern Meteor.
Northern Meteor was a champion racehorse and is fast becoming a brilliant sire
Ticket to Toorak is another of the impressive Northern Meteor 2yos and will line up in the 2yo Magic Millions Classic on the Gold Coast this weekend. This year’s sales look to be no different with a stellar draft of 25 Northern Meteor yearlings to be offered next week at the Magic Millions. Last year Dynamic secured two of Northern Meteor’s best progeny, a colt and a filly, direct from the MM sale ground.
The filly, out of Comedy Club, was syndicated midway through the year and has just resumed work in the stables of Peter Moody. The cleverly named REPARTEE has started her galloping work in recent days and we are hopeful of seeing her at the track soon. She is a horse with plenty to like and her owners are sure to have some fun with her.
Our colt by Northern Meteor out of Villa Valencia is one of the superb colts that we sent over to the New Zealand Ready to Run Sale. He is a magnificent colt bred to be quick and has already shown that he has the ability to be a very nice race horse. At the Breeze Ups prior to the Ready to Run Sale in November, our colt ran a sizzling 10.63 seconds for his 200m work, well inside the average time of 10.85 secs.

This colt is closely related to Dean Watt’s Gr1 Golden Slipper winner POLAR SUCCESS being out of the unraced mare VILLA VALENCIA. She is a ¾ sister to quality stakes class racehorse PARFUMIER and a ½ sister to the outstanding racemare and producer PATOU (Dam of Polar Success).
This colt will be trained by Sydney’s champion trainer Chris Waller who has just recently cracked 100 NSW winners well before the half way point of the season. Chris, like the team at Dynamic, first saw this colt at the Magic Millions sales in January of 2012 and immediately wanted the opportunity to train him. After a discussion with Dynamic, it was decided that we would bring this colt along with two others over to New Zealand to show the world just how good they were. They didn’t disappoint and all breezed up in spectacular fashion to give us plenty of confidence that they will quality gallopers as their individual careers progress. In particular, Chris has a huge wrap on this athletic, strong and ready-made racehorse and will aim the colt at the Sprint races over the Autumn Carnival.
Chris and Dean have had a long relationship in the racing industry
The colt has successfully landed here in Australia and is currently in the spelling paddock. Sometime in the near future, he will begin full work at Chris’s Rosehill based stable in preparation for the upcoming Autumn. More information can be found on this colt by CLICKING HERE
The Northern Meteor progeny will only improve with age like his father did on the race track. He was a Gr1 winning dual course record holder at three and constantly improved on his performance throughout his career before being retired to stud.
