Half Sister to Kolding Debuts Today
Faye Presto (Iffraaj-Magic Star, by Danzero) will make her debut in the first race at Seymour today over 1300m, and opened up at $6.50 in the betting. She is a half-sister to Gr1 Epsom Handicap winner Kolding (Ocean Park), Gr2 winner Sampson (Dubai Destination) and Listed winner Miss Upstart (Snippetson). Their dam, Magic Star, is a half-sister to Gr2 winner Make Mine Magic (Canadian Silver) and she had only four starts but has since excelled as a broodmare with three stakes winners from seven runners (all winners). Faye Presto was sold by Wentwood Grange at the New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sale for $150,000 to Grahame Begg Racing in partnership with Rohan J Hughes Thoroughbred Services. Favourite for the Bet365 Odds Drift Protection Maiden Plate is Ryan’s Gift.
