Super Easy's half-brothers in the news
25 Oct 2016Group One-winning sprinter Terravista (Captain Rio) easily won a barrier trial over 760 metres at Hawkesbury yesterday.
The Joe Pride-trained Terravista (pictured above) was not asked for a major effort as he took out heat nine in 44.68 seconds. After originally planning to not race Terravista during spring, Pride is considering running his stable star in the Century Stakes (Listed, 1000m) at Flemington on 3 November.
The seven-year-old has not raced since finishing sixth in the T J Smith Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) at Randwick on 2 April.
“I kind of wanted a bit more opposition but it wasn't there," Pride said. “But that trial was the right time out from the race. It's served its purpose, he's come through it well and he looks good. We had to bite the bullet there and give him a spell. It's meant missing this spring almost altogether. I've managed to get him up for one run so I'm more than happy with that."
Terravista’s stablemate, and half-brother Ball Of Muscle (Dubawi) will line up in the Group 2 Linlithgow Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Saturday.
The Group Two-winner Ball Of Muscle, has had two starts this preparation, finishing second in The Shorts Handicap (Gr 2, 1100m) in September before running sixth in the A J Moir Stakes (Gr 1, 1000m) later on in the month.
By Darci Brahma, Super Easy is a multiple Group 1-winning half-brother to both Terravista and Ball Of Muscle and has got off to the best possibly way as a stallion with his first runner, Prom Queen winning on debut last Saturday - click here to read and watch the win.
