FORMER superstar Queenslander Cyndie’s Magic could soon have her first race starter as a mum.

The daughter of Magic Sprite-Regal Silver became a household name with her “come from last” performances over a long career which saw her a prolific winner and Group star.

Her first litter, whelped in May 2018, are nearing the racetrack and the first of the pups has been named by Bill and Cyndie Elson.

It will race as Limited Edition and is a black daughter of that fabulous mating match.

Cyndie’s Magic won the Qld Cup, Rocky Cup, Winter Chase, Clem Jones Cup and Winged Runner Trophy. But she was placed in five Group races and a finalist in another five.


CRAIG Watts reports his Group class bitch Chase The Cash has produced three dogs and five bitches to her mating to Fernando Bale.

They are just a couple of weeks old.

Chase The Cash (El Grand Senor-Time And Money by Slater) started 87 times for 18 wins, 30 placings and $76,000 in stakes. She was a finalist in the G2 Gosford Gold Cup and G2 Richmond Oaks and won up to 720m.

Her dam Time And Money was a G1 Easter Egg finalist and has been a fabulous producer.

Chase The Cash’s littermates include Big Black (23 wins, 21 placings, $88,000), Big Gora (11 wins, 12 placings, $25,000), La Chica Princess (14 wins, 15 placings, $22,000) and Tiempo Dinero (29 wins, 28 placings, $88,000).

The mating to Fernando Bale brings in some very proven crosses including that which produced G1 Melbourne Cup winner My Redeemer.

Craig has only two of the pups left for sale.


VICTORIAN Tracey Salter is as hands-on a dog person and any in this country.

She reports her very classy bitch Natural Rhythm (Paw Licking-Resemblance by Collision) has just whelped eight dogs and one bitch to her mating to champion sire Kinloch Brae.

This bitch raced 22 times for seven wins and five seconds one 3rd for $12,000 in stakes. She was a fast 29.50 winner at Sandown and her litter included Shockwave (11 wins, $35,000).

Their dam Resemblance was a multiple winner at Wentworth Park.

This is the direct family of Resigned who was outstanding winning the G2 Sydney Cup and being twice placed at Group level over distance at Wenty.

The mating to Kinloch Brae brings in THREE aspects of Natural Rhythm’s pedigree that have already worked with him. One of the very best progeny sired by Kinloch Brae in the UK is Ballymac Vic whose mother is by Elite State (grandsire of Natural Rhythm).

Two of the very best progeny sired by Kinloch Brae in Australia are G1 winners Moreira and Asa Flying Spur. Both their dams are by Collision.

A number of the best progeny sired by Kinloch Brae in Australia carry Token Prince in their damline including Blazin Bomber, Ring The Bell and Bells Are Ringin.

Natural Rhythm carries TWO crosses of Malawi’s Prince in her pedigree.


ANTHONY McVicker is a very successful greyhound breeder.

He has designed a couple of matings to multiple G1 winner Out Of Range (Fernando Bale-Nicki Fields) who now stands stud duties in Ireland.

Anthony is planning to mate both Sticka Sizzles (Kinloch Brae-She Ain’t Late by Late Late Show) and Tunza Thunda (Magic Sprite-Blue Thunda by El Grand Senor) to Out Of Range.

Sticka Sizzles is a half sister to G1 Hobart Thousand winner and Sandown TR holder Unlawful Entry whose first progeny on the track are starting to win city races.

The mating to Out Of Range was a natural because he has Knocka Norris as his damsire.

And, Unlawful Entry is a son of Knocka Norris.

Tunza Thunda too is from a very prolific winning family.


ZAMBORA Brockie is taking all before him at stud and reports on his progeny are that they are fabulous chasers.

Sam Bonaccurso at Diamond Creek has whelped a litter of two dogs and two bitches by Brockie from that classy city performer Oronsay (Walk Hard-Dirty Angel by Cosmic Chief).

What a great race bitch Oronsay was winning the G3 Vic Bred Maiden at The Meadows and also making the G2 Launching Pad and Maidment Memorial finals.

She came from a litter that also included the classy Angel Dash (15 wins, $66,000), Beanbag (12 wins, $52,000) and Liebig Street (8 wins, $48,000).

This is the direct damline of champion Surf Lorian.

Oronsay won 13 races, was placed 23 times, and earned $110,000 in stakes.

Sam will be looking forward to those four hitting the racetracks in a couple of years time.


INTERESTING pedigree … Brian and Cheryl Styles over at Two Wells in South Australia have been having plenty of fun with Minnie Mac a multiple Angle Park winner.

The bitch is by Silver Saul-Gypsy Spy by Big Daddy Cool.

Gypsy Spy, the winner of 22 races, went to Silver Saul in 2016 to produce a litter of four that are all winners.

Silver Saul, of course, is the 1999 whelped son of Oak Raider-Sudden Magic who was a Sth Aussie legend during his race career. He was 2002 Sth Aust GOTY.

Before the Gypsy Spy litter in 2016, his previous litter had produced Dolly Jo (18 wins, $21,000) but before that his previous had been one whelped in 2012.


THOSE South Australians like trying something different.

Paula Hearnden, at Angaston, also has a litter of Evening Memory-Quite Contrary offspring racing.

The four offspring from the litter have all won and they are headed by city winner Long Gully Terry (6 wins) a multiple Angle Park winner.

Evening Memory is the HB’s Commander-Morning Memory dog who was whelped in 1992 and became a star race performer.

He got to fifth on the US sires ladder in 1999 and again in 2006.

Eight litters were bred in Australia by Evening Memory.

Paula’s mating of Quite Contrary in 2017 was the first mating for Evening Memory in Australia since 2005.
