3YO From Biscay Bird Family Wins Debut
Joe Pride believes his has an autumn prospect on his hands following the stylish debut win of the well-related Cyber Intervention at Wyong yesterday. Despite showing signs of greenness, the 3YO produced a good turn of foot to rush home over the top of his rivals to score a narrow but decisive win in the Guardian Partners Maiden Handicap over 1200 metres. Trainer Joe Pride was delighted with the performance and said the gelding would only continue to improve. "He's probably one of the most immature horses in my stable," Pride told Sky Racing. "I thought I'd bring him to the races but I was expecting the unexpected. I knew he had the ability to win but he could easily have done everything wrong and run last so its really good to see him put it together today." Pride added: "He'll go straight to the paddock now. As he gets older he'll only get better. I'm really happy with him and I believe he is a really nice horse going forward." A $55,000 purchase at last year's Inglis Classic Yearling Sale from the draft of Wahha Thoroughbreds, Cyber Intervention is by former champion racehorse So You Think out of Soft Landing (Al Maher-Biscay Bird, by Bluebird), a half-sister to 4-time Gr1 winner Universal Prince and Gr1 Robert Sangster Stakes winner Universal Queen. This is also the family of Victoria Derby winning sire Blevic.
