Xtravagant Half-Sister On Debut In Newcastle
It’s a long way from Newcastle to Flemington on Derby Day, both physically and figuratively, however multiple Champion Trainer Chris Waller might look back fondly on the day as the moment where a young future Flemington-bound debutante announced herself. Named Axiomatic, the 3YO O’Reilly filly is out of Zabeel mare Axiom, producer to date of New Zealand Champion 3YO and dual Gr1 winner Xtravagant (see below), and his Pentire full-sibling He’s Remarkable, a triple Gr1-placed Gr3 winner. The filly hails from an exceptional dam line that is responsible for, among others, Gr1 winners Legs and Sixty Seconds. A $300,000 Inglis Easter yearling graduate from the draft of Willow Park Stud, Axiomatic won her most recent trial at Rosehill. She is raced by prominent owner Alan Osburg and Torryburn Stud, whose principal is former Australian Turf Club chairman John Cornish.
