Lizard Island Sibling To Debut at Illawarrra Today

Wednesday, 29th January 2020

Marsannay (Snitzel-Bourgogne, by Choisir) will debut today in the Illawarra TC Duck Creek Dash Maiden 2YO Handicap over 1000m. The half-brother to Gr1 Caulfield Guineas runner-up Lizard Island (Sebring) and Listed placed Fairy Star (More Than Ready) has had two trials in preparation for his debut outing. The 2YO colt was sold by Rosemont Stud at the 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale for $400,000 to the Waterhouse/Bott Racing team. Marsannay's dam Bourgogne won two races and was deemed good enough to run in the Gr1 VRC Oaks (won by Arapaho Miss). She is a half-sister to Gr1 winner Bulla Borghese (dam of Gr2 winner Bound for Earth).
