Baby brother for Hurtle Myrtle
Tara Madgwick – Tuesday, 11 September 2012
Top class mare Hurtle Myrtle hit the headlines earlier this year when selling for $1million at the 2012 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale and sported the colours of her new owners Segenhoe Thoroughbreds when winning a barrier trial at Randwick on Monday morning.
Still being trained by Matthew Smith, who has guided the daughter of Dane Shadow to many wins including the Group I VRC Myer Classic, Hurtle Myrtle indicated there may be more in store when cruising clear to win her 1050 metre trial by two and a half lengths.
Given the overwhelming success of Hurtle Myrtle, her dam Ravenswood was upgraded last year by her owner Grahame Mapp of Hobartville Stud to be covered by champion sire Redoute’s Choice .
She produced this gorgeous colt at Kitchwin Hills last week.
