Indigo Ora boosts brother at Magic Millions

Progressive Oratorio filly Indigo Ora has improved out of sight since winning her maiden over 2000m at Bunbury last month.

Unlike the vast majority by Oratorio, she wasn’t a factor in sprint trips earlier this season.  “She didn’t have a lot go her way and was due for a change of luck,” trainer Dan Morton explained.  “But I liked the way she was hitting the line.”

Indigo Ora (3f Oratorio – True Dane by Danetime) followed up the Bunbury breakthrough with a placing to Who Dat Singa at Ascot (1850m) on Xmas Eve and another win at Pinjarra (2000m) on January 10.

The emerging stayer has also helped Mungrup Stud’s pre-sale promotion of her yearling brother who has been entered as Lot 184 for the Perth Magic Millions.  Their dam True Dane is a sister to G2 Karrakatta Plate winner True Roman.

Oratorio was the leading local sire at the 2015 Perth Magic Millions with a Book 1 average of $53,500.  He has 15 lots catalogued for next month’s Magic Millions after the withdrawal of the colt from Recoverable (Lot 109).

The Mungrup Stud champion has captured 5 of the last 6 Western Australian 2YO titles and he leads the current ladder with earnings of $159,525.  His first starter Diamond Princess – another Oratorio from a Danetime mare – boosted the bank balance with a handy win at Bunbury on New Year’s Day.
