Curraghmore graduates performed well on both sides of the Tasman over the weekend, headlined by New Zealand Bloodstock graduate Tulip (Pierro).
The four-year-old mare missed out on a start in the Group One feature at Caulfield but was impressive when winning the Punters.com.au Living Legends Handicap (1400m).
Lindsay Park Racing have marked her as one to watch in the future and have the Gr.1 Myer Classic (1600m) for fillies and mares in their sights, with the Gr.2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) at Flemington an option on the way there.
The other winner over the weekend was Power Rush (Power) who made it two from two when successful at Wyong on Sunday under a kind ride from Jason Collett.
The Kris Lees-trained filly was pin-hooked out of Brighthill Farm's New Zealand Bloodstock draft as a weanling before being purchased by Ravenswood Bloodstock out of Curraghmore's 2017 Select draft at Karaka.
Power Rush looks to be up to city class and will only go forward from here.
Loose Cannon (Tavistock) was very good stepping up to Group Three level in just her second start, and finished a nice fourth behind class filly Avantage in the Hawke's Bay Breeders' Gold Trail Stakes (1200m).
She is another showing plenty of promise in the early stages of her career and was also purchased from Brighthill Farm as a weanling before being on sold by Curraghmore as a yearling.
Might Boss (Not A Single Doubt) ran an encouraging sixth in the Gr.3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield, with jockey Michael Walker full of praise for Curraghmore's New Zealand Bloodstock graduate following the race.
"He has run super," Walker said.
"I think the decision Mick and I made to take the blinkers off him has worked. He actually jumped out and was interested. The winner went around them I went through. I’m looking forward to the Caulfield Cup. He’ll run the 2400m easy."
