Glenlogan Park’s exciting young stallion Real Saga has hit the front in the battle for Australia’s Champion First Season Sire honours.
It follows the impressive win by filly Real Surreal (pictured courtesy Dan Costello Racing) at Eagle Farm on Saturday which placed her into Magic Millions.
The outstanding win by the Kelso Wood trained youngster has seen her sire leapfrog Sebring for the premier position in a battle that looks set to be hard fought for the entire season.
The First Season Sire table currently reads:
REAL SAGA – (3 winners from 7 starters) and $213,200 in prizemoney.
SEBRING – (5 winners from 15 starters) and $191,795 in prizemoney.
NORTHERN METEOR – (3 winners from 8 starters) and $149,000 in prizemoney.
THE extraordinary Clifford Park powers of Toowoomba mare Miss Imagica (pictured Nev Madsen) were again on show when she swept to her fourth successive home-track feature win on Saturday.
Miss Imagica ($3.80) added to her Listed Weetwood Handicap last March with a dominant display in the $80,000 Mainz Developments Fillies and Mares Quality Handicap (1200m).
It was the Hidden Dragon mare’s third successive victory in the annual feature and her eighth win from 10 starts on the Clifford Park Cushion Track.

Raheen Stud stallion Publishing (pictured) was represented by his first winner on Saturday.
His filly First Release scored an on-pace victory in the 100% Gold Coast Maiden Plate (900m).
First Release (2f Publishing – Lauren’s Charm by Knowledge) was part of Raheen’s draft just across the road at the 2012 Gold Coast QTIS Sale.
She had finished midfield on debut at Sunshine Coast but was ready to strike second time out when the even-money favourite Puff’s Girl (Hidden Dragon) faded in the straight.

Once again Queensland bred runners have dominated the Eagle Farm program on Sunday.
The day opened with Real Surreal, by Glen Logan’s leading sire Real Saga, surging home over 1000m for a dominant win in the QTIS 2yo Handicap.
Real Saga’s barn-mate, Jet Spur put a notch on his belt in the second when the Helen Page trained Power of Ed came from the inside gate to be first past the post in Race 2, Winning Edge Benchmark 75 Handicap (1000m)
It was a double for Jet Spur when race 4 the Class 6 Hcp went to Equissential. A top ride by Geoof Goold took Equissential to the front and he never looked in doubt over the 1400m.
Lyndhurst Stud’s former sire Carry the Flag rounded out the day when his ever-consistent 5yo gelding, Carry Me Bluey (pictured courtesy Dan Costello Racing) powered home from the back of the field under Kirk Matheson to win Race 6 Benchmark 90 Hcp over 2100m.
Trainer Norm Hilton will consider raising the bar during the Sydney autumn carnival with new middle distance discovery.
Carry Me Bluey defied a sprinting pedigree to record a commanding half length win over Mr Light Blue at his first attempt over 2100 metres.

TBQA President Basil Nolan has praised Magic Millions for the success of their inaugrual Open Day event.
Almost two hundred people attended the Magic Millions Sales Complex at Bundall on Sunday, January 6th to find out about the racing industry.
Guest speakers outlined a variety of topics including Kevin Dixon from Racing Queensland talking about the exciting future for the industry, Katie Page outlined the popular Women in Racing Initiative and there were numerous owners, trainers and industry representatives discussing how to get involved in racing and the fun to be had.
The purpose of the day was to provide information to potential new owners about how to get involved, purchasing a horse, finding a trainer, costs associated with racing and what to expect.
It was also a chance to inspect the exciting yearlings that will be on offer at the prestigious Magic Millions Sales from this Wednesday.
Queensland Studs are well represented at the sale which attracts the leading Studs and trainers from right across the country, along with plenty of international interest.
And there are plenty of QTIS eligible yearlings to go under the hammer.
