The success of the first racing crop of the former NZ and Australian 2YO Colt of the Year Follow The Stars is grist for the mill for the Port Pirie Harness Racing Club.

The Club has nominated two superbly bred colts by the Art Major horse for Sunday’s Allwood Stud Farm South Australian Yearling Sale at the Magic Millions, Morphettville.

“They’re both really nice types who have been very well reared. I like both of them. They are very easy to get along with,” preparer Pam Hayter, the partner of prominent trainer Lane Johnson, said.

Follow The Stars, who stands at Allwood Stud Farm, Bullsbrook (WA), has sired a winner and five placegetters from seven two-year-old starters to date.

The first of the Port Pirie consignment, Lot 5, is out of the Perfect Art mare Reign’s Daughter, whose dam, Viking Reign, was one of the best fillies ever produced in Queensland. She won 26 races including the QBred Triad twice and $132,125 in stakes and at the stud left nine including the Queensland Christmas Cup winner Monty Reign, Spirit Of Reign (Racing Minister’s Cup) and the $124,000 earner Maker Reign.

The colt boasts a desirable 3x3 cross to Artsplace and carries the blood of top producer Perfect Profile on both sides of his pedigree.

Lot 37 is a colt from the unraced Four Flash Pennies, a daughter of the outstanding NSW racemare of the 1990’s, Four Penny Dark. She won 31 races – 10 at Group/Listed level – including the Bathurst Gold Tiara, the NSW Sires Stakes 2YO and 4YO Finals, NSW Princess Mile and J. L. Raith Memorial and $300,174.

Both colts are eligible for Vicbred, Southern Cross and The Allwood.

Catalogues for the sale are available from Globe Derby Park, Port Pirie, all other SA country tracks, Tabcorp Park Melton and Tabcorp Park Menangle. The on-line version is available at www.saharness.com
