Four Future Stars for BC3

With the BC3 Future Stars sale looming on Sunday, August 22, owners and trainers were reminded of the young brand’s growing international presence last weekend with four winners across three continents in the space of four days.

With all four winners having their first outings this preparation, current owners are looking forward to the next few months of racing, whilst prospective buyers have plenty to be excited about ahead of the BC3 Future Stars sale to be conducted by Inglis at Oaklands Junction on Sunday August 22.

Last Friday’s strong win by Stratum gelding Gig Guide against a quality field at Geelong started the ball rolling.  His turn of foot over the last 300 metres gave onlookers an insight to a potential 3YO spring performer.  

On Sunday at Del Mar, Cactus Jane (Cactus Ridge) stepped out for her debut and gave her owners something to celebrate with a storming three length victory.

Later that day in Japan, Highest Climb (Empire Maker) also won on debut at Hakodate over 1000 metres.  He was a graduate of the 2009 USA BC3 draft and became the company’s first Japanese winner.

On Monday at Swan Hill, impressive Lonhro gelding Johnnydrama scored an easy debut win at his second start and now looks set for a promising Spring campaign.
