The Trixton two-year-old colt Utopia made an auspicious debut at Shepparton on Thursday (July 2), winning by an amazing 82.5 metres at a track record 2:02.6 rate. Bred by Nick Hooper and Paul Graydon, the colt is out of a Muscles Yankee mare, Gluteus Maximus, and thus carries a 3x2 cross to Muscles Yankee.
