Maiden Winner Entered for Derby

At this time of year with Autumn Classics around the corner any well related three year-old maiden winners by High Chaparral (IRE) are always worth a second look.

Prepared by Jim Conlan, three year-old colt Big John Cannon was Group III placed behind Archives at his second start during the spring and was spelled immediately after. Having his third run back from a spell in the 1400 metre maiden, Big John Cannon found the line well for Dwayne Dunn to score a short head win in a competitive finish.

A $190,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Newhaven Park draft for Cliff Brown Racing, Big John Cannon is the second winner for Kurylenko, an Exceed and Excel daughter of Group I winner Miss Pennymoney from the family of Golden Slipper winners Capitalist and Merlene.

Group I VRC Oaks winner Dear Demi also appears on the page, so Big John Cannon does not lack for pedigree and holds an entry for the Group I ATC Australian Derby in April. Newhaven Park will offer another top class draft of 17 youngsters for the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale, click here to see them.
