Six of the best for Red Dazzler

Eureka Stud freshman Red Dazzler sired his sixth winner when El Milagro scored an eye catching win on debut at Kranji on Friday night.

El Milagro (2g Red Dazzler – Vinzky by Stravinsky) was clicked up early by rider Barend Vorster to hold a forward position and, despite being pressured throughout, he was able to score stylishly.  The flashy youngster drew clear of Magical Sunset (Hussonet) to win by a length and a half.

“I wasn’t sure whether he would find a lot under pressure,” trainer Don Baertschiger said.  “He has a high head carriage and can do a few things wrong but will only get better.”

Raced by the Bingo Stable, El Milagro caught the eye of his trainer with a 200 metre breeze up in a slick 10.45s before the Magic Millions National HIT Sale at the Gold Coast in October.

Baertschiger bought him for $100,000 from the Symphony Lodge draft.

El Milagro’s NZ bred dam Vinzky is a sister to five time winner and triple stakes placed Muzdaher.  The mare is from a winning Snaadee daughter of VRC Oaks and Thousand Guineas winner Tristanagh.

Red Dazzler (Red Ransom) was a G1 winner of the Toorak Hcp at Caulfield before retiring to the McAlpine family’s Eureka Stud in Queensland.
