Yarradale Stud stallions have been siring winners on call this month and top of the dial this week has been Bradbury’s Luck in Singapore.
His Aussie expat Eye Guy didn’t let favourite punters down with a decisive victory at Kranji on Sunday. Other recent winners by Yarradale sires – past and present – have been Essential Spice (Gingerbread Man), Jacka’s Mob (War Chant), Kelly’s Gem (Vital Equine), Jenabel (Scandal Keeper) and Stockyard Gossip (Discorsi).
The Singapore result was never in doubt once Eye Guy (pictured) settled on the steel for jockey Mohd Zaki. The fleet-footed sprinter attacked the line with gusto to defeat Taro San (All American) and Verizon (Red Arrow).
Eye Guy (3g Bradbury’s Luck – Lacada Point by Giant’s Causeway) was beaten on debut in May and has followed up with two front-running victories at Kranji. “He was pretty green but has improved from that first run,” trainer Michael Clements said. “He’s picked up nicely and did a good job today.”
Bred and sold for $15,000 by Ferrari Racing & Breeding at the 2016 Perth Magic Millions, he won a Belmont trial late last year before owner Joe Singh transferred him to Singapore in January.
“He settled down very well and was very focused,” Zaki reported. “I was very confident that he would be able to go all the way.”
Yarradale Stud stands Bradbury’s Luck for a $4,400 fee alongside War Chant ($11,000), Gingerbread Man ($4,400) and Heritage ($4,400) while Vital Equine ($4,400) is based at Rosalee Stud.
