The Yarraman Park sold two year-old Time to Reign made an impressive winning debut at Randwick on Saturday.
A $325,000 Magic Millions purchase for Darby Racing/De Burgh Equine/Portelli Racing, Time to Reign is a half-brother by Time for War to Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign and appears to have inherited a good amount of his sibling’s brilliance.
The Gary Portelli trained colt powered clear to win by more than two lengths.
“It is good to see him do that because he is a potential stallion,” Portelli said.
“He is very green. He has never been away from Warwick Farm before so the day was all new to him.
“I know he is talented. It was just a question of how he handled things.
“We will look at the Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington now.”
