Upstart Pride Wins Listed Goldmarket
At the Gold Coast in Queensland, Clear Mountain Fairview's dual stakes-winning stallion Tycoon Ruler (Last Tycoon-Sweet Delight, by Rancho Ruler) added a black-type quinella when 5YO gelding Upstart Pride (Tycoon Ruler-Proud, by Buck's Pride) opened his stakes account when scoring by 1.3 lengths for trainer Michael Nolan in the $100,000 Listed Goldmarket (1200m) for 3YO+, over 9YO gelding Jopa (Tycoon Ruler-Safety Pins, by Youthful Legs) & 6YO gelding Flamboyer (Clang-Zedatier, by Zeditave). Upstart Pride, who was a $30,000 purchase by Nolan at the 2013 Magic Millions QTIS Yearling Sale from the draft of Clear Mountain Fairview, improved his record to 9 wins and 9 placings from 30 starts for $455,550 earnings.
