24/01/02 Adelaide Sale: Adelaide the Place for a Top Umatilla
South Australians have had a great link with the underrated Victorian based stallion Umatilla.

A Group One winner on the track Umatilla is now establishing himself as one of the leading colonial sires in Australia.

Having a look down the feature race performers for Umatilla is like reading a "Best of South Australian Racing" book.

Two of four of Umatilla's Group One winners were offered for sale as a yearling in Adelaide (Streak and Umrum).

Already those planning on being in Adelaide from February 18 to 20 are looking through the seven Umatillas in the catalogue to find this year's "star."

Seven Umatilla yearlings - four fillies and three colts - have been catalogued in Adelaide's classy sale next month.

The star of paper appears to be the first of the seven to go under the hammer - a bay filly from the Keltrice mare Exotic Treat.

The filly, catalogued at lot number 287, is a three quarter sister to the Group One winning star Umrum, who himself was sold in the same sale for just $30,000.

One of the more interestingly bred Umatilla colts up for grabs is in the third and final day of the sale during the summer select session.

The bay colt, which is SABIS qualified, is out of a lightly raced sister to the former sensational two-year-old New Atlantis - a top juvenile who should have won the Slipper in 1985.

UMATILLA'S STRONG SA LINKS

UMRUM - Group One miler who was sold at this sale as a yearling and is owned and trained in Adelaide. A dual winner of the Toorak Handicap in Melbourne. Also a Group winner in Adelaide and Perth. Trained at Morphettville by leading mentor Leon Macdonald (also the trainer of Li Lo Lill).

STREAK - Offered for sale here (where he failed to get a bid) the gelding went on to score a gutsy win in the Group One Sydney Cup at Randwick in 2000. Had already been a Group winner in both Melbourne and Tasmania. Finished third to the brilliant Intergaze in a Group One Australian Cup at Flemington. Bred by local identity Wally Tonkin, who raced him with great success.

BOHEMIATH - Bred in Victoria, but scored his greatest win at Group One level in the Adelaide Cup at Victoria Park. Had run second in the same race a year earlier.

UMALINE - One of the country's best three-year-old fillies she was a runner-up in a Group One Oaks (to the then flying Grand Echezeaux). Shot to fame earlier that prep by winning the G2 $500,000 AV Kewney Stakes in Melbourne. Bred, owned and trained (on most occasions) in South Australia. Twice a South Australian Horse of the Month.

LI LO LILL - Bred, trained and owned in South Australia she was the most consistent three-year-old filly of the most recent spring carnival in Melbourne. Placed in the G1 Thousand Guineas, G1 Crown Oaks and G2 Wakeful Stakes. Already a Group winner in Adelaide.

STAND BY ME - Another high class Umatilla galloper who was bred in South Australia. He was offered for sale and failed to attract a genuine bid and was retained by his breeder to race with fellow West Coasters. Trained at Port Augusta and best win came in the Group Three RN Irwin Stakes.

RUM - Finished second past the post but later relegated to first in the Group Three South Australian St Leger at Victoria Park. Had placed in the VRC St Leger a month or so earlier.
