A couple of two year olds from the debut crop of Ultimate Machete impressed this past weekend.
In Tasmania, Smooth Machete ripped off an incredible 26.7 second last quarter to win a heat of the Dandy Patch by over 9 lengths!
It was an incredible performance, one which will see him very hard to beat in the upcoming Group 3 final.
Bred by Kelly and Mark Regget, Smooth Machete is out of the McArdle mare Sparkling.
At Globe Derby Park, Miss Idaho made it two wins in a row when taking out a heat of the Golden Nursery.
Coming home her last half in 57.8, she won easily by almost 2 lengths.
Miss Idaho was bred by Garry and Melva Graham and comes from a family they have had a lot of success with.
Golden Valour, the dam of Miss Idaho, is a Courage Under Fire daughter of Goldtown Dancer, who in turn is out of Classic Classic Kate.
Descendants of Classic Kate bred by the Grahams include Royal Verdict $537,522, Miss Dangerfield $123,428, Modern Girl $122,135, Hexham Heartbeat $120,079, Flash Jimmy $85,090, etc.
This season Golden Valour will visit The Storm Inside.
Ultimate Machete has now sired individual 2YO winners from 41 foals.
