Winx Relation Aiming To Blitz Rivals

Friday, 16th February 2018

The opening race at Flemington tomorrow will see the debut of twice Horse of the Year Winx's close relation in Nuclear Blitz. By Gr1 Golden Slipper winner and Gr1 producing sire Sepoy, the filly is from Encosta de Lago mare Miss Atom Bomb, a half-sister to both Winx and Gr3 Kindergarten Stakes winner El Divino. Nuclear Blitz was a $300,000 purchase by Dermot Farrington Bloodstock from the draft of Bhima Thoroughbreds at the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. In what appears a hot field of 2YOs, Nuclear Blitz is currently at $7 and fourth in the market behind current pre-post favourite Pierro Belle ($3), a superbly bred filly from the flying yard of Tony McEvoy. Pierro Belle is by another Gr1 Golden Slipper winner in Pierro from high class Gr3-winning mare Pane in the Glass.
