Typhoon Tracy Relation To Debut Today
Three-year-old colt Essential Element, who hails from the esteemed Tracy's Element family, will debut at Mornington today. The Greg Eurell-trained first-timer, who was a $420,000 purchase at the 2012 Inglis Sydney Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Vinery Stud, will race in the well-known black and green chevron silks of owner Sean Buckley, made famous by Miss Andretti. Essential Element is a son of Golden Slipper winner Flying Spur from the Red Ransom mare Element Of Danger (Red Ransom-Tracy's Element, by Last Tycoon), a full-sister to deceased champion mare Typhoon Tracy, VRC Oaks runner-up Kylikwong, & Listed Creswick Stakes winner Red Element. Essential Element's second dam, Tracy's Element (Last Tycoon), was an outstanding racemare winning 4 Gr1 sprints which earned her champion mare honours in South Africa. This is one of the most coveted and successful families in the studbook with other notable members including Danasinga, Cullen & Towkay.
