Colt Bred In The Purple Debuts Today
Any thoroughbred racing devotee will be watching this afternoon’s opening event at Geelong when one of the best bred colts in the country goes to the post for the first time. Trained by the Hayes, Hayes & Dabernig stable, More Sundays (Fastnet Rock-More Joyous, by More Than Ready) races in the silks of owner-breeder John Singleton’s Strawberry Hill Stud. The winner of his only public trial at Rosehill Gardens in December last year, the blueblood is out of the sensational 9-time Gr1 winner More Joyous. Grand dam Joy and great grand dam Joie Denise were also Gr1 winners from an exquisite catalogue page of thoroughbred achievers. More Sundays’ Frankel half-sister Woman won over 1250m in Sydney last season. Jordan Childs has the ride aboard More Sundays in the day’s opening event (12.30pm) over 1100m.
