2ND In Our First Group ONE Appearance
Jun 11, 2015
In our very first six months of operation our star filly SAGARONNE ran a gallant 2nd in the Group ONE JJ Atkins (1600m) in Brisbane on June 6th.
Sagaronne flew home after being blocked for a run and hit the line 2nd behind super colt, Press Statement, by half a length.
Daughter of Real Saga, she was a Magic Millions purchase at the 2014 March QTIS Yearling Sales she was hand picked by informed Gold Coast trainer, Toby Edmonds who has his sights for her to head to the Melbourne Carnival in October of this year.
Australasian Thoroughbred's Director and Sagaronne's part owner Jamie Bourke, said he was overwhelmed by her outstanding effort, ability and will to win. Mr Bourke congratulated Mr Edmonds on his exceptional training feat to get his filly to this level on her 3rd start back.
Mr Edmonds said to Mr Bourke that his selection of the filly in the sales ring was due to her athletic build and constitution. Mr Edmonds said he was not leaving the sales that day without her.
