Co-bred and sold by Yarraman Park, Eclair Sunrise became the latest two year-old winner for champion sire Fastnet Rock when winning easily at Ballarat on Wednesday bringing timely pedigree updates for her half-brother and dam, who will sell at the Gold Coast in coming weeks.
The Dan O’Sullivan trained Eclair Sunrise finished last at her only previous run in February earlier this year and was spelled straight after, but was a different filly this time around.
She jumped well for Will Price and found the lead on the fence, travelling smoothly all the way in the heavy ground to coast home and win the 1200m open juvenile event by nearly two lengths.
A $480,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Yarraman Park draft for Philip Stokes Racing/Thomas Li, Sunrise is the second winner from Group II placed I Am Invincible mare Tetsuko, who is notable as being the first starter for I Am Invincible when she finished second in the Listed ATC Gimcrack Stakes in 2013.
Tetsuko was also placed in the Group II ATC Sweet Embrace Stakes and is a half-sister to the dams of South African Group I winner Entisaar and stakes-winner Mizlecki being from stakes-winner Magdalena.
Tetsuko will be offered by Yarraman Park in the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale as Lot 1084 and is in foal to Written Tycoon.
Yarraman Park will also offer the yearling Snitzel colt from Tetsuko in the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale as Lot 1598.
