Smart two year-old Savanna Amour will be targeted towards three year-old black type races in the Summer and Autumn after a brilliant win at the Sunshine Coast.
Trained by John and Chris Meagher at Eagle Farm, Savanna Amour was dominant scoring a widening 4.3 length over 1200m.
Savanna Amour was a $100,000 yearling purchase by Grant Morgan of Ontrack Thoroughbreds. As was the case with star colt Brazen Beau, Savanna Amour was purchased out of the Inglis Classic Sale ring at the historic Newmarket complex in Sydney.
Savanna Amour is from the first crop of former high class galloper Love Conquers All, who now stands at Sun Stud (formerly Eliza Park) at Innisplain in Queensland.
“This filly was a standout for us in her year as the best QTIS filly sold in Australia. She had it all as a yearling, athletic, strong and forward with a big female page, said Grant Morgan of Ontrack Thoroughbreds.
“I think this filly has a big future ahead.”
“Love Conquers All is a sire we have a very high opinion of. We purchased 3 yearlings from his first crop and went back this year and found an outstanding colt from Automatic Slim who goes to Gerald Ryan.
“Whilst the Love Conquers All two year-olds have done an amazing job, we feel the best is ahead for them as three and four year-olds as was the case with Love Conquers All himself.”
Savanna Amour heads to the Spelling paddock at Kilto Park before a Summer and Autumn campaign is devised.
“The spring might come around a bit early for her. We will map out some black type races for her here in Brisbane in the Summer. We might look towards the Autumn in Melbourne with her,” said Morgan.
