Exciting 3YO Not For Sale
16 Jun 2012
Goodwood Stud has decided to spurn any offers for Barbaric and are looking forward to the three-year-old’s future career.
The homebred created a stir when he was an effortless debut winner at Hastings recently and has been the subject of buyer interest.
“We’re going to keep him and race him on,” William Fell said. “He was very impressive and looked like he could have won by more so we’re going to take a chance.
“For various reasons he didn’t sell and we ended up racing him and hopefully he’s going to be another good advertisement for the stud.”
A son of Pins, Barbaric was withdrawn from Goodwood’s 2010 National Yearling Sale draft due to a skin infection and a stone bruise kept him away from the Ready to Run Sale.
“He’s a horse that has had a lot of problems and he needs to be managed well, which Stephen (Marsh) has done,” Fell said.
“He’s gone out for four weeks and then he’ll come back for the spring and placed right there might be some nice stakes races for him in the future.”
Barbaric is out of Burnzees Magic and the six-time winning daughter of Kinjite is also the dam of the multiple Hong Kong winner Elusive Prince.
“We’ve got a weanling filly out of the mare by Nom du Jeu that we’ll keep and she’ll probably go back to Pins again this year,” Fells aid. “She’s from a great old Fairdale Stud family.”
Burnzees Magic is a grandson of the Fell family’s Gr.1 Railway Handicap winner Ajasco whose daughter Silver Liner emulated her Ellerslie success. She also left the South African Gr.1 winners Petrava and Hoeberg and the successful stallion Jallad.
