Blueblood breaks maiden in Victoria
Well-related colt Banquo has struck the first winning blow of his career with victory yesterday afternoon at Sale.
He is prepared at Flemington by Danby O’Brien for a syndicate that includes Waikato Stud.
The three-year-old is a son of Written Tycoon and the Flying Spur mare Noondie.
An AU$600,000 Magic Millions purchase, the colt is a brother to the Gr.1 Oakleigh Plate winner Booker.
Banquo was making his fourth appearance and posted a dominant win over 1400 metres under Damien Oliver.
Ocean Park also made his mark at the meeting with the lightly-tried Bumper Blast a runaway winner.
At his second start for trainer Robert Hickmott, he sauntered home over 1300 metres by six and three-quarter lengths.
A $48,000 Karaka yearling graduate, Bumper Blast is out of the winning More Than Ready mare Bucklebury.
The dam is a half-sister to the Group Three winners Von Tunzelman, Sherrif and Prince Jabeel.
