On Wednesday night at Bathurst trainer/driver Bernie Hewitt produced the unraced 3yo Novanta Rising and the Betting Line gelding coasted home a comfortable winner rating 1:57.5 for the 1730 metres.

Novanta Rising started very short in betting markets at $1.22 on the back of five straight wins in trials at Bathurst since the start of 2024.

Lot 44 in the Nutrien Sydney Yearling Sale on the weekend of March 9th and 10th is a half-brother to Novanta Rising and is being offered by Brooklyn Lodge and clients.

This colt is by A Rocknroll Dance from the Somebeachsomewhere mare My Bankers Pride which now has a 100% producing record as her first foal, Barbados, won six 3yo races in 2023.

The cross of A Rocknroll Dance over a Somebeachsomewhere mare is the same cross responsible for Curly James p,1:51.3 $211,559. Curly James won the $75,000 Group Two Shepparton Gold Cup on January 13th.

My Bankers Pride was unraced but she is a half-sister to five winners including Ideal Warrior p,1:50.9 $183,368, Bathurst Gold Crown runner-up Bebrave p,3,1:54.3 $182,620 and Perfect Penny p,2,1:58.8.

Perfect Penny is the dam of NSW Oaks winner Anntonia p,3,1:49.8 $411,835 and the 2yo NSW Breeders Challenge winner Miss Halfpenny p,3,1:55.0 $235,403.

Brooklyn Lodge can be contacted on 0438 683 280 to arrange an early inspection of Lot 44.
