With his oldest runner currently three-year-olds, it’s exciting to see that the progeny of Tamalee Farm’s Arlington are really starting to highlight their class and ability.
At Port Macquarie on Friday, November 10, Arlington’s daughters Fast Arli and Magic Arli continued the success of their sire by winning their respective races.
First away was the Tim Martin-trained Fast Arli who saluted in the second event of the day, the WH Smith Fresh Plus Class 2 (1500m). Successful two starts prior at the same track, the filly started well in the market as the second elect.
Away well from the outside barrier, Nutman urged the filly forward to take up the running. Untroubled once in the lead, the filly kicked when rounding the final bend to surge to a three-length victory. Click image below to view replay.
A handful of races later it was Magic Arli’s turn as the Bob Milligan-trained filly also started well in the market, contesting the Blair’s Newsagency Country Maiden Showcase Plate (1200m).
Having only her second start after a pleasing third on debut, jockey Rachel Murray didn’t bustle her mount out of the gates, allowing her to settle in a mid-field position, although wide in the run.
One of the widest into the final bend, Murray set out after Rocket Monkey who had kicked clear, and riding hands and heels, Magic Alri made up the ground with relative ease, pulling away for a length and three-quarter victory. Click below image to view replay.
With five winners from 20 runners to date, Arlington’s progeny, as expected are really starting to come into their own as they have been given time to mature.
As a half-brother to back to back New Zealand Champion Sire Savabeel, the Waikato Stud-based stallion who is looking a shoe-in for his third title, Arlington has the pedigree and the looks to prove a worthy proven sire prospect well into the future.
