First up it was the Classic Sale in Sydney - the sale that of late produced Golden Slipper Winner She Will Reign, not to mention the likes of Group 1 winners Extrene Choice and I Am A Star.
We managed to secure Lot 199 a Star Witness Colt and Lot 674 a Reward For Effort Filly.
Fast Forward to March and back in Victoria at the Melbourne Premier Sale, the place Black Caviar walked through the sales ring, the stable secured Lot 149 a Spirit of Boom Colt, Lot 202 a Epaulette Filly and Lot 277 a I Am Invincible Filly.
These five yearlings were hand picked by Daniel and their sires have produced nine Group 1 winners and dozens of Stakes winners.
All five yearlings look precocious types with the I Am Invincible Filly and the Spirit of Boom Colt having two of the hottest sires in Australia to thank for their precociousness.
