Super Day In Sydney For WS

WS posted a notable double in Sydney on Saturday after the promising Said Com followed the winning lead of Think Mink. The former is a son of O’Reilly in the champion stable of Chris Waller and was purchased by the trainer out of the farm’s 2010 Premier Sale draft at Karaka for $290,000.

The winner of two of his four starts, the three-year-old is a son of O’Reilly and the Centaine mare Centa Belt. She is a half-sister to the Gr 1 New Zealand 2000 Guineas winner Master Belt who was later sold to American interests and won the Gr 3 Santa Anita Morvich Handicap in America.

O’Reilly also enjoyed success in Hong Kong overnight after his three-year-old son Mighty K won over 1400 metres at Sha Tin. Trained by Caspar Fownes, he was a $230,000 yearling and is from the successful WS family of dual Gr 1 winner Legs (New Zealand Oaks, Kelt Capital Stakes).

The four-year-old Think Mink is a daughter of Scaredee Cat and the Rhythm mare Zazu and is part-owned by Mark Chittick and Guy Lowry. She won one of her three starts from the latter’s Hastings stable before she was transferred to John O’Shea’s Sydney yard and she has now won a further two races. Her dam is a half-sister to the Group performer Zumanity and a maternal descendant of the dual New Zealsnd Cup winner Princess Mellay.
