Lincoln Farm sire Crowns Classic Sale

Lincoln Farm heads to the Inglis Summer Classic yearling sale on the back of another black-type victory by its proven stallion Beautiful Crown.

Myamira (5m Beautiful Crown – Simmysue by Simonstad) motored home from the back of the field to win the G3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Gosford on Friday.  “The early speed up front was an advantage,” jockey Robert Thompson said.  “She tracked up good and really sprinted for the final 600 metres.”

Myamira is the 10th stakes winner for Beautiful Crown.  The Rod Northam trained mare defeated Darley’s Redoute’s Choice stablemates Pleiades and La Pieta.

Northam has soft for the mare having trained her dam Simmysue to three wins for Port Macquarie owner-breeders Jim and Gail Newton.  “Simmysue was my first winner in town at Canterbury about 10 years ago,” Northam recalled.  “I’ve trained a few of her foals but Myamira is the best by far.”

The Newtons board Simmysue at Lincoln Farm and the mare has a cracking Ready’s Image filly at foot and is back in foal to Beautiful Crown.

Lincoln Farm owner Nick Posa has an impressive record at the Inglis Classic Sale.  His Hunter Valley nursery finished fourth on average in 2012 and there’s another five yearlings catalogued for this year’s Sale.

They are by up-and-coming sires I Am Invincible, Star Witness and Lope de Vega and all three were in demand at the Magic Millions last week.

I Am Invincible is leading the Australian first-season premiership and his second-crop averaged $240,000 on the Gold Coast.  His Classic Sale colt (Lot 158) is from winning Anabaa sprinter Fasting who has already foaled three winners.

Star Witness had 8 first-crop yearlings make six-figures on the Gold Coast topped by a $450,000 colt purchased for Gai Waterhouse.  His Classic Sale colt from Lincoln Farm is out of Hadavision (Lot 195) who won three black-type sprints in the USA.

Beautiful Crown has 4 colts from outside studs at the two-day Classic Sale on January 19 and 20.  Among the quartet is a three-quarter brother to Beautiful Crown’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas winner In Top Swing.

In Top Swing was a $50,000 graduate of the 2002 Inglis Classic Sale.  His three-quarter brother is the first foal of Varella (Rock of Gibraltar) and is catalogued as Lot 464.

Lincoln Farm’s consignment is available for inspection at Stable 1 – Row D at the Newmarket sales complex.
