Curraghmore graduates were on song at Warwick Farm on Wednesday filling the first two placings in the TAB Venue Mode Plate (1400m).

The Mark Treloar-bred Good Stock was having his third career start and went straight to the front from the outside gate under a positive ride from Tim Clark.

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained three-year-old was never challenged and cruised away to win by 1.8L.

Good Stock, a son of the late Tavistock and Duke of Marmalade mare Big Voices, was purchased in partnership by Waterhouse, bloodstock agent Johnny McKeever and Ferguson Bloodstock at the 2018 New Zealand Bloodstock sale out of Curraghmore’s Book 1 draft.

He made his debut in November last year before resuming last month with a third placed run at Canterbury.

Runner-up Kinane was equally impressive fresh-up. The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old travelled at the rear of the field before making ground late to collect his second placing from two career starts.

Bred by Nearco Stud, Kinane was sold as a weanling through Curraghmore’s 2017 May Sale draft when purchased by Highden Park as a pinhook.

Both look to be promising three-year-olds who will progress from here.

“It is great to see Big Voices get her first metropolitan winner,” Curraghmore’s Gordon Cunningham said.

“Good Faith, Good Stock’s grandam, was a class two-year-old has been a fabulous producer. It is a family with plenty of upside.

“I’m thrilled for the connections of these horses and pleased that those who purchased out of this family at Karaka have had a timely pedigree update.”

Good Stock’s win provided a pedigree update to several yearlings sold through Curraghmore’s 2020 yearling draft including his full sister purchased by Go Racing.

The Waikato-based farm also sold two Tavistock fillies out of half-sisters to Big Voices in My Parlay and Bay Star.
