Torryburn Bred Filly Beats $4 Million Colt

Goulburn, June 1 - Blue-blooded colt $4million purchase Emaratee trekked to Goulburn on Monday for his second start for the Hawkes Racing Team and again found one better going down in a competitive finish to lightly raced Excites filly Storm Siren.

The three year-old Fastnet Rock colt from River Dove jumped fast for Tommy Berry to take up the lead and held his position at the front on the fence and did look the winner briefly when turning for home until challenged strongly over the concluding stages by Storm Siren.

She powered through along the fence for Kathy O’Hara to snatch a short head win over the colt, improving on her last start second at the same track last month to break her maiden at start nine for Jason Coyle.

A modest $12,000 Inglis Classic Winter Book purchase for her trainer, bred and sold by Torryburn Stud, Storm Siren is the second winner for De Chorus, an Unbridled’s Song (USA) daughter of stakes-winner Val de Grace.

Emaratee was the second highest priced offering at the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale when bought by Emirates Park and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, behind Black Caviar’s ill-fated half-brother by Redoute’s Choice, who made $5 million but died before he was named.
