The effort of the Sweet Lou colt Dangerous with a fast-finishing second to Captain Hammerhead in the Alabar Bloodstock 3yo Nutrien Classic at Bendigo last Friday put a focus on the draft of Greg Mitchell’s GSM Racing in the 2024 Nutrien Sunshine Stars Yearling Sale.
GSM Racing have five yearlings entered in the sale including a colt by Tintin In America from the Rock N Roll Heaven mare Ark Teamo which is a half-sister to Dangerous.
Dangerous took his record of 1:54.9 as a 2yo and he has now won five races and Friday’s second placing lifted his earnings to $89,526.
Ark Teamo took her record of 1:58.7 as a 2yo and she is also a half-sister to the Redcliffe Oaks and 4yo Qbred Triad winner Eleniark p,1:51.8 $203,855 which is currently at stud in the USA where she finished her racing career.
