The James Harron Bloodstock colours made famous last season by Champion 2YO Colt and Golden Slipper winner Capitalist were carried to victory at Newcastle on Friday by promising Hinchinbrook two year-old Coulthard. The Peter and Paul Snowden trained colt was an encouraging fourth on debut at Wyong last month and took good improvement from that outing. Fitted with winkers and stepped up to 1400 metres, Coulthard was held up for a run in the straight, but when a gap appeared next to the fence he forged through for Blake Shinn to win by a short neck over well-bred Fastnet Rock colt Zeppelin. Bred by Yarraman Park, Coulthard was a $260,000 Inglis Classic purchase for James Harron Bloodstock from the Yarraman Park draft and is a half-brother to stakes-placed Carlton Forward and Al’s Magic Miss being the third winner from Group III placed Carlton Ace. He is the fourth two year-old winner this season for Hinchinbrook, who has a runner in the Golden Slipper in Group II ATC Todman Stakes winner Diamond Tathagata. Hinchinbrook has six entries for the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale including Lot 27 from Yarraman Park, who is closely related to Coulthard. This Hinchinbrook filly is from Al’s Magic Miss, so is a three-quarter sister-in-blood to Coulthard.
