Creator Lives Up To His Pedigree
Saturday showcased a juvenile that had plenty to prove off his pedigree and sales price at Inglis Easter last year, and the immaculately bred colt did all that and more at Hawkesbury’s stand alone meeting in Sydney’s west. Consigned by Arrowfield Stud, Creator was knocked down to James Harron for $1.5 million. By recently deceased Arrowfield stalwart, multiple champion sire Redoute’s Choice, Creator is out of Sill Regalis, a half-sister to dual Gr1-winning Hong Kong Champion Sprinter Silent Witness and multipe Gr1-placed Group winner Sister Madly. Beaten around 5-lengths in each of his first two starts, Creator got a bit further back than jockey James McDonald would have liked but picked up nicely in the straight to beat undefeated odds-on favourite Erno. On Saturday’s showing Creator could find a race to suit in the Brisbane winter carnival.
