Bargain Buys Tackle Bluebloods At The Farm
At today's Warwick Farm meeting, two of the least expensive weanlings or yearlings of the last two years will tackle a quartet of six figure juveniles. In the day's opening event over 1200m, the well named Let's Dream Big ($3,750) and Rather Sweet ($9,500) go head to head with trial winner Kunmig ($220,000), Rock and Swing ($600,000), Gravitate ($240,000) and Bella Vino ($155,000). While Let's Dream Big is on debut, Rather Sweet has already had two runner-up finishes from five starts, plus a close up 4th in the Gr2 Silver Slipper at her last start. The winner might, however, come from none of them: never offered for sale is the beautifully bred Godolphin filly Wine. By their high-flying sire Street Cry, the Godolphin home-bred is out of the Gr1-winning Commands mare Purple. Race time is 2.15pm.
