On Saturday night, at The Meadowlands, Bettors Wish sired the winners of both the 3yo Colts and 3yo Fillies editions of the $240,000 New Jersey Sires Stakes in Odds On Steno and Arbitrage Hanover.

Commencing on 3rd June, the 2024 Nutrien Winter Woolies Sale features two lots where Bettors Wish has an influence.

Lot 14 is a weanling filly by Bettors Wish from the American Ideal mare Emerging Talent p,1:55.1 which is a half-sister to She Envy p,1:53.4 $105,532..

Being offered by Jordabton Pty Ltd, this filly is out of a grand-daughter of Australian Broodmare of the Year Alldatglittersisgold.

Emerging Talent is therefore closely related to Australian 2yo Colt of the Year Bling It On p,1:50.2 $1,882,956 who is a son of American Ideal as are a couple of other winners from Alldatglittersisgold in Bletchley Park p,1:52.4 $418,028 and The Code Breaker p,1:56.3 $179,016.

Lot 135, on account of R & C Angove, is the Somebeachsomewhere mare Eyewitness which is in foal to Bettors Wish with her first foal being due in mid to late September.

Bettors Wish has sired five individual winners of $200,000 or more in the USA with his first crop of current 3yos.

Two of those five winners in the previously-mentioned Arbitrage Hanover and Wish You Well are out of Somebeachsomewhere mares.

Eyewitness is bred in the purple being a daughter of former Australian 2yo Filly of the Year Espeshlimade Lombo p,2,1:58.6 $299,199 which makes her a half-sister to no less than nine winners.

Eyewitness’s grand-dam is an Australian Broodmare of the Year in Butterfly Trunkey which also produced nine winners including one of the country’s legendary race-mares in Tailamade Lombo which won 49 races and $1,354,978.
