Runaway Win for Choose a Saga
Brisbane – The juvenile event at Eagle Farm on Saturday was won in brilliant fashion by Choose a Saga, a $22,000 Magic Millions Session Five purchase from the draft of Widden Stud.
The Darryl Hansen trained gelding showed the benefit of recent racing when scorching away to win the 1200 metre contest by four and a half lengths at his fourth race start.
“I have always had a very big opinion of this fellow and the ease of that win did not surprise me one bit,” said Darryl Hansen.
“He is as tough a youngster as I have ever had and he has a bucket-load of talent to go with it.
“He has not stretched out at all on the wet tracks his last couple but today, with the better conditions and the longer distance (1200m), he was able to get good solid footing and sit back on the bit and relax during the running.”
Choose a Saga is by Real Saga and is the first winner for Choose a Star, a half-sister by Choisir to stakes-winner Mister Celestial.
