It may have only been a trial, but Fastnet Rock's young sire-son Rothesay has unveiled a 2YO colt in New Zealand who seemingly has a boom on him as big as he did himself when trained out of the Gerald Ryan stable a few years ago.

Three year old Big Brown (USA) filly, MUSCOVADO made it back to back victories when winning at Wyong last Friday. MUSCOVADO jumped well and with a lot of early pace upfront, jockey Thomas Huet elected to settle the filly behind the leading trio, where she travelled kindly, one off the fence. After rounding the turn, MUSCOVADO featured in a tough battle down the home straight.
Four year old High Chaparral (IRE) mare WHITE DOVE (NZ), won for a second time this preparation when scoring narrowly over 1,900 metres at Canterbury on Wednesday. Apprentice Winona Costin elected to settle the mare in behind the leading group and WHITE DOVE (NZ) travelled well on the rain affected track. Rounding the home turn, Winona eased the mare to the outside of the leaders and she fought strongly to the line to win....
We were delighted to watch our 3 year old gelding CONFEDERATE salute on debut at Hawkesbury on Saturday. The son of Charge Forward was a Magic Millions yearling purchase and lead all the way on testing track conditions to win for jockey, Adam Hyeronimus.

The daughter of Big Brown (USA) was a 2013 Magic Millions purchase and is raced by an "all girls" syndicate. She is cleverly named, being a half sister to Stakes winner Sugar Babe , as Muscovado is a type of brown sugar!
