Boom Crimson Reign Son Confirmed For Canterbury Debut
Although it's a long way from the trial track to landing the spoils at the races, former ATC chairman and Torryburn Stud principal John Cornish will be holding thumbs about highly touted unraced 3YO colt Deploy. The exciting prospect is out of Cornish's talented mare Crimson Reign, winner of the Gr3 Kindergarten Stakes at just her second start and sixth in the Gr1 Golden Slipper. With further stakes victories and placed in the Gr3 Missile Stakes over 1200m, she appears to have passed on some of her zip to Deploy who is by champion Australian sire Fastnet Rock. He is her third foal and created a powerful impression when defeating two high class individuals in Headwater and Press Statement in his latest trial at Rosehill earlier this week. Trained by Gerald Ryan, and owned by Cornish in partnership with Segenhoe Stud principal Kevin Maloney, M. Ennis & David Raphael's Stallion Racing, Deploy is expected to have his first race start at Canterbury in two weeks time.
