Victorian bred juvenile Boys Day Out became the first winning graduate of the inaugural Inglis Ready 2 Race Sale at Canberra on Friday.
Boys Day Out (2g Domesday – Verkko by Flying Spur) made it a big day out for trainer Gratz Vella and connections on debut. He tracked tearaway leader Perizada (Shaft) and then strode clear for a comprehensive four length victory in the Aristocrat Hcp (1000m).
The winner was bred and sold by Tylden based Woodside Park for $15,000 at the Inglis Melbourne Premier II Sale in March 2013. He subsequently changed hands again for $38,000 when offered by Edmonds Racing (as agent) at the Inglis Ready 2 Race Sale in October 2013.
Boys Day Out is by Darley sire Domesday and his dam Verkko won a Mortlake maiden in 12 starts for erstwhile Woodside Park trainer Dale Sutton. Second dam Sybarite (Last Tycoon) is a half-sister to Champion South African filly Laisserfaire and the Australian stakes winning stallions Foreplay and Time Thief.
Verkko has a yearling filly by former Woodside stallion Econsul (NZ) who is now based at Darling View Thoroughbreds in Western Australia. The mare was served by Written Tycoon last year.
Woodside Park has 6 colts catalogued for the Inglis Melbourne Premier yearling sale in March.
