Every cloud has a silver lining

Bargain was passed in at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale and she is giving Waikato Stud no cause to be disappointed at that outcome.

The daughter of Ocean Park failed to reach her reserve at Karaka, but she is now realising her racing potential and won for the second time her brief career at Wyong this afternoon.

Trained by Mark Newnham, the well-related Bargain posted a comfortable victory over 1350 metres in the hands of Rachel King.

The filly is a daughter of Shopaholic, successful in the G2 Angus Armanasco S. and G3 Kewney S., and all four of her foals to race have been winners.

Shopaholic hails from a potent Waikato Stud family and is a half-sister to the Group 3-winning half-brothers Splurge and Packing Pins.

They are out of the G3 Thoroughbred Club S. winner Splashing Out and she is a three-quarter sister to the ill-fated multiple G1 winner and successful sire Sacred Falls.

The recent Listed Gingernuts Salver winner and G1 New Zealand Derby prospect Milford also appears on this pedigree page.
