Extract from Breednet by Tara Madgwick – Tuesday, 3 October 2017
Four two year-old trials at Rosehill on Tuesday morning produced winners for Exceed and Excel, Sebring and Mossman with the fastest heat won by a slick son of Not a Single Doubt.
Prepared by Gerald Ryan for Sun Bloodstock, Legend of Condor did everything right for Josh Parr, breaking smoothly from the gates to surge forward and take up the lead.
He controlled the trial throughout and gave a good kick down the running to skip clear and win under his own steam by two lengths clocking 53.30 seconds for the 900 metre gallop.
A $520,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm draft for Sun Bloodstock, Legend of Condor is from Rhodamine, a winning Success Express (USA) mare from the family of Group I NZ Two Thousand Guineas winner Atlante.
He was the most expensive yearling by his sire sold at that sale by quite a margin.
