October 9, 2017Baker Wins With Another Newhaven Park Purchase
Bjorn Baker is no stranger to success with a Newhaven Park bred horse having won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic with Unencumbered and was back in the winner’s circle with another Newhaven bred Magic Millions purchase last Saturday at Randwick in Goodfella.
Fourth in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic behind Houtzen, Goodfella was sent to the paddock after that and only recently resumed after his lengthy break.
The three year-old son of champion sire Snitzel needed the run first up when unplaced behind Viridine in the Listed ATC Heritage Stakes, but hit top form at his second run back to win over 1400 metres in the Benchmark 78 event by a short neck.
Goodfella has already won over $260,000 in prizemoney and can be well placed through the spring and into the summer given his Magic Millions eligibility.
A $200,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Newhaven Park draft for Bjorn Baker/ Blandford Bloodstock, Goodfella is the first winner for stakes-placed Red Ransom (USA) mare Movie, a daughter of stakes-winner Strawberry Storm.
