It was something old and something new for two-year-old winners sired by Sun Stud’s stallions over the weekend.

On Saturday, Sun Stud’s established sire Magnus had an impressive two-year-old winner in Enbihaaar won on debut at Morphettville.

Owned by Shadwell Stud and trained at Lindsay Park, the Dorrington Farm bred son of Magnus was bought through the Magic Millions Gold Coast sale last year and now looks set for a crack at the Blue Diamond.

Then on Sunday, Sun Stud’s first crop sire Fighting Sun recorded his first Australian winner and second overall, with two-year-old colt Sunfighter winning at Wyong on Sunday.

New Zealand based filly Platinum Mam’selle opened the account for Fighting Sun by winning stylishly at Trentham the weekend previous and now Sunfighter has added his name to the sire’s honour roll.

The Brad Widdup trained colt made a winning debut over the 1100 metre journey, with Christian Reith sitting outside the leader before asserting his authority in the straight and holding the challengers at bay to secure a soft 1l victory.

Bred by long-term Sun Stud client Paul Whyte, the powerful grey colt is the second foal of the winning Darci Brahma mare Sky Flyte and is raced by Jadeskye & Samaco Racing.

An undefeated son of Northern Meteor, Fighting Sun has covered over 550 mares in his first four seasons at stud and his yearlings have sold up to $220,000 – off an advertised fee of just $13,750.

Added to all of this, Enzo’s Lad won the Group 1 Telegraph Stakes in New Zealand over the weekend. The son of Testa Rossa was part of Sun Stud’s (then Eliza Park International) Inglis Premier Sale draft of 2014.

He is the second Group 1 winner out of Sun Stud’s Premier Sale draft that year which also included Champagne Stakes winner Pasadena Girl.

Fascinatingly, boxed just metres away also in Barn G that year was a Gilgai Farm bred yearling daughter of Myboycharlie…yep, you guessed it, Jameka!
