Ferocity cracker at Capricornia Sale

Jorson Farm’s Ferocity colt will be one of the star lots at the CQTBA Capricornia Yearling Sale this Sunday, April 14.

Jorson Farm owners Tony and Julie Brown nominated the colt for the Rockhampton Sale and then his older half-brother Written Above All won a Doomben maiden last month.  He’s a Written Tycoon with Robbie Heathcote and is raced by a Sheriff Iskander syndicate.

Their dam Marvella (Shovhog) has also foaled international winner Samadhi, another son of Written Tycoon.  He won at Morphettville for Lloyd Kennewell and at Sha Tin for Kenny Man.

Catalogued as Lot 38, the QTIS qualified Ferocity colt is a grey/brown and has impressed while being prepped at Wondai.  “He’s a cracking colt and is as straight as a die,” Tony Brown said.  “Nothing worries him and he’s QTIS qualified.”

The Browns are making encouraging headway with their yearlings.  Jorson Farm was in the Top 5 on the median list at the Inglis Classic Sale in January with a Statue of Liberty colt topping its trio at $80,000.  He was bought by Aquanita Racing.

Jorson Farm also sold a Choisir colt to Paul Perry at Scone last year.  Registered as The Life, he won second-up at Newcastle in January and is ready to resume after a recent trial at Cessnock.

The Life ran down another Choisir colt Good Job Bro at his home track.  Perry would have taken note a month later when the second horse home bolted in at Warwick Farm.

Ferocity (Lion Hunter) won the Adelaide Magic Millions 2YO Classic and returned at three to claim the Ascot Vale Stakes at Flemington.  He stands at Oaklands Stud and has sired 95 winners of 222 races.
