So close to the perfect start for Access Bloodstock last weekend
30 Jan 2009
Last early on, the Kevin Moses trained All Legal put on display an impressive finishing burst to miss out on the prize by a mere long head.
Considered by many to have been a touch unlucky not to salute, the bay had previously won a Randwick trial and the future looks bright for the son of Al Maher.
With a select group of well related broodmares producing between 12 and 15 foals a year, Access Bloodstock is an emerging force. Based in Queensland, they are continually upgrading their stock – as evidenced by the astute purchase two years ago of the Belong To Me mare My Moccasin.
Already a ¾ sister to the dual Gr.3 winner Queen Of The Hill, My Moccasin’s value has increased considerably in the meantime – thanks to the deeds of her exciting Gr.1 winning half brother Northern Meteor.
Another of her siblings in Rabbuka is also highly promising, so far the winner of four of nine and due to resume soon on a Doncaster Handicap preparation.
Also lightly raced with abundant ability is Fight And Defend out of My Moccasin’s half sister Steamheat. A recent Randwick trial winner, he showed great potential during his debut campaign last spring.
Access are looking forward to the career of My Moccasin’s yearling son by General Nediym to be trained at Warwick Farm by Denise McGrath who has done such a terrific job with last start Magic Millions Sprint winner Keen Commander.
“He is a lovely, big, rangy fellow,” McGrath said of the chestnut – “and he has a good head on his shoulders, he is very sensible.”
