Group Two Winner Sold by Three Bridges
Promising young sire Nicconi has been churning out the winners in recent weeks and cracked it for his first stakes-winner on Friday night at Moonee Valley with the Group II MVRC Alister Clark Stakes.
Progressive colt Chill Party is a $60,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the draft of leading Victorian nursery Three Bridges Thoroughbreds. A close second in the Listed VRC TCL Stakes at Flemington on Oaks Day, the Tommy Hughes Jr trained Chill Party hit top form at his third run back from a spell with a seven length win at Moonee Valley on March 9 and carried his good form into this tougher assignment.
He found the line strongly for Patrick Moloney to edge out classy stakes-winner Stratum Star in a thrilling finish to the 2040 metre contest with Widden sires Nicconi and Stratum filling the quinella.
Chill Party has won four of 11 starts earning over $190,000 in prizemoney with many more wins in store.
Bred by Reavill Farm, Chill Party is the best of three winners from Dressed to Impress, a half-sister by Turtle Island (IRE) to Group I winners Titanic Jack and Sober Suit.
He was another successful pinhook for Three Bridges Thoroughbreds having been bought by Paul Willetts for $30,000 from the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.
Three Bridges will offer three stunning youngsters at the 2015 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale next month – three fillies by Street Cry (IRE), Foxwedge and Gio Ponti (USA).
