Sir Owen Glenn On The Go At Randwick

Sir Owen Glenn’s Go Bloodstock started the spring with a first-time Group double at Randwick.

Go Bloodstock has raced numerous Group One winners – Criterion, Monaco Consul, Railings, Headturner, Russian Revolution and Second Coming among them – but was the first Group double on the same day for the leading New Zealand owner and breeder.

Glenn’s colours were carried to success by Comin’ Through in the G2 Tramway Stakes and Pure Elation in the G2 Furious Stakes.


Comin' Through Horseform, a G1 winner of the Doomben Cup in May, is a Fastnet Rock half-brother to Glenn’s four-time G1 winner Criterion (Sebring) and has now won seven races including the G2 Ajax Stakes, G3 Carbine Club Stakes and G2 Bill Ritchie along with G1 placings in the Doncaster Mile and Randwick Guineas, earning $1,786,521 prizemoney.

Comin’ Through and Criterion Horseform are among the nine winners from 10 to race out of the Group winning Bite The Bullet mare Mica’s Pride.

Mica’s Pride had produced stakes winners Varenna Miss and Silently before Glenn purchased the mare for $300,000 at the 2009 Australian Broodmare Sale.

Go Bloodstock also races Comin’ Through’s 3YO full brother Sir Owen and Mica’s Pride has a yearling full sister to Criterion that Glenn will retain.

Mica’s Pride will be covered by Russian Revolution this spring, Sir Owen Glenn having purchased a share in that stallion when he was an early 3YO before he won the G1 Oakleigh Plate and G1 ATC Galaxy.

The 5YO Comin’ Through was also the first leg of a G2 double at Randwick for his sire Fastnet Rock with his star daughter Unforgotten snaring the Chelmsford Stakes on the same program.

Pure Elation’s triumphant return in the Furious Stakes was a satisfying result after the I Am Invincible filly had bled after winning the G2 Percy Sykes Stakes at Randwick in the autumn.

She has now won three times from only six starts for $667,220 in stakes.

Pure Elation Horseform is the first foal of Flemington stakes winner Members Joy, a Hussonet daughter of the Group winner Rosa’s Spur (Flying Spur).

A daughter of Group winner Rosa’s Joy, Rosa’s Spur was purchased for $500,000 by the Newstar Partnership at the 2017 Chairman’s Sale in Sydney. She has a yearling colt by Toronado and a colt foal by Flying Artie.

Bred in Victoria and offered by Swettenham Stud at the 2017 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, Pure Elation was knocked down to Paul Moroney Bloodstock for $320,000 and was the only yearling purchased by Glenn in Melbourne last year.

Trainers Peter and Paul Snowden also liked the filly and had independently bid up to $250,000 for her when she offered, only to be handed the grey to train by Glenn.

R6 RANDWICK 1 September 2018
Tramway Stakes 3U , 1400m
Race Synopsis: Fresh up from his Doomben Cup (Gr.1, 2000m) win in May, Comin' Through showed great fight to prevail against a nice field of sprinter-milers here. Jockey Michael Walker pushed him forward after an average start to be a handy sixth (rails) past the 1000m. At the 200m he was gaining on them, got his nose in front at the 100m then held on gamely to win by a neck for win seven and $1.7m. Tom Melbourne lay second turning in, had a great look at the lane and kept fighting hard all the way to the post for a second, yet again. Dixie Blossoms was fifth turning in, bumped by the winner, steadied and ran on strongly for an unlucky third, a head back. Arbeitsam tried to kick clear at the 400m then fought hard to be another long head back and a solid fourth.
