02/08/02 Favorite Trick Away and Winning
Former champion juvenile and American Horse of the Year Favorite Trick has been represented by his first winner.

Favorite One proved too good dashing away from his rivals in the first event at Laurel Park in America on Wednesday afternoon.

At the line the Favorite Trick colt had a two and three quarter length break over his rivals in the seven furlong event.

Out of the Black Tie Affair mare Prissy One, the Bud Delp trained youngster was ridden by Mario Pins.

The win was a great result for leading Victorian nursery Collingrove Stud, who stand Favorite Trick when he shuttles to Australia.

A beautifully bred entire Favorite Trick was the first two-year-old in America since Secretariat to be crowned the Horse of the Year.

He is by the Champion North American sire Phone Trick and is out of the stakes winning Medieval Man mare Evil Elaine.

"Favorite Trick was a very tough and precocious galloper qualities much appreciated by Australian breeders," Collingrove's Marketing Manager Jenny McAlpine said.

The unbeaten juvenile has the grounding to make it at stud. His first crop foals are from successful mares such as Londolozi, Millrich, Miss Jugah, Adeewin, Flight To Fantasy, Gilded Angel, Vestey, Wild Thunder, Apple Danish, Miss Rosemont, Lemon Spice, Innocent Lady, Halo Again, Lillaflicka, Reganza, Spirit Of Kingston, Political Asylum, Jullene and Mad Shavirl.

In his second season he covered mares like So Gorgeous, Loving Cup, Emerald Rein, Balcanny, Spinning Reel, My First Star, Love De Tor, Kilspindie, Kirribilli Girl and Whilodge.

"Taking into account his quality books of mares, the way his first crop foals look, and his own credentials so aptly suited to Australian conditions he has every chance to make it as a sire in this county," McAlpine added.

Favorite Trick is standing the 2002 season for the top value fee of just $22,000 (inc GST) at Collingrove Victoria.
