Widden Sold Winners to Follow
Wyong – Widden Stud graduates provided two eye catching winners from Wyong on Sunday in the shape of two lightly raced three year-olds that cast off maiden status with impressive victories.
First to salute was the Rick Worthington trained Danzero filly Golden Sunshine, who blitzed her rivals to win the 1000 metre maiden by three and three-quarter lengths on debut, clocking a slick 57.12 seconds.
Well supported by punters, Golden Sunshine obviously has above average ability and will be worth following to town.
A $65,000 purchase for her trainer from the Widden draft at the 2011 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, Golden Sunshine is bred to go fast being the first winner from Cloudwing, a daughter of former brilliant stakes-winning filly Cloudlet from the family of Magic Millions winner Zephyrz and Group II winning sprinter Athelnoth.
Resuming from a spell of 20 weeks, it was a new look Impetuous that took to the track on Sunday, the daughter of Fastnet Rock turning in an explosive performance to win the 1350 metre maiden by nearly five lengths.
Trained by Clarry Conners for Dr and Mrs Edmund Bateman, Impetuous had shown ability in two previous short preparations, but has obviously returned a far stronger filly this time around to post her first win at her fourth race start.
A $600,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Widden draft for James Harron/De Burgh Equine, Impetuous was bred by Murray Murdoch of Fig Tree Thoroughbreds and is the first foal of stakes-placed Rash Promise, a half-sister to Group I winner Demerger from the family of champion filly Triscay.
Widden Stud will present another sensational selection of yearlings at sales in 2013.
