Eclipse offers two ‘athletes’

ECLIPSE Breeding Venture is offering two naturally bred yearlings for this year’s Magic Millions sale. The stud farm has been running for nearly ten years.

Eclipse owners Phil Ryan and Linda Deval said both colts were reared in the Perth hills at Sawyers Valley and showed a natural athleticism.

“Lot 163 is a tall, long striding colt by the top sire Zabaleta from the US who has consistently produced winners locally and in Asia,” Ms Deval said.

“The dam – So Classic – has had four foals to race for three winners and a promising placegetter.

“She is closely related to the well known mare Edge of Darkness – a winner of ten races and placed in the Group 1 WA Turf Club Winfield Stakes,” she said.

Lot 163 is full brother to the filly Repertoire, winner of the WATC Roses of Summer Series Final H.

The colt is also brother to winners Classic Bungle and Royal Spice and placed filly Anita Rose.

Mr Ryan said Lot 489 was a striking bay colt by the sire Bletchley Park from Ireland.

“He has produced more than 70 per cent winners to runners, including winners in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Macau and Zimbabwe,” Mr Ryan said.

“The dam Century Waltz is a city winning mare who was also placed in a listed race at two years.

“Her half sister Cashier, trained by Bart Cummings, won the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes at Randwick and at the last Easter Yearling sale a half sister was sold for $230,000,” he said.
