May 11, 2021Sinba – One To Watch
There looks to be better things ahead for the two-year-old Xtravagant gelding Sinba, judging by his dominant win on debut over 1400m at Newcastle on Saturday.
The only 2yo in the field, Sinba carried the support of the Gerald Ryan and Sterling Alexiou stable, and he didn’t disappoint.
With Keagan Latham in the saddle, Sinba came with a barnstorming finish from second last on the turn to defeat the Street Boss (USA) gelding Kanmoreu, one of three starters from the stable of Chris Waller, by two lengths.

Purchased by Ric Wylie Bloodstock / Mark Richards for $90,000 out of the Newhaven Park Stud draft at the 2020 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, Sinba is the first foal of the Bernardini (USA) mare Kamili.
Sinba is the second winner for Newhaven Park Stud’s NZ 2000 Guineas hero Xtravagant who stands at a value fee of $11,000 in 2021.
