Classy New South Wales filly Miss Halfpenny capped off an excellent juvenile season with a Group 1 victory in the $125,000 Breeders Challenge final at Menangle. The daughter of American Ideal pounced on the lead and was never headed in 1.55 and change. Bred at Goulburn by Matt Day, Miss Halfpenny has now banked closed to $170,000 in stakes in her brief career. Congratulations to all involved.
American Ideal added another millionaire to his CV, when his star North American 3yo daughter Youaremycandygirl joined the elite club! He is now the sire of 13 millionaires!
Bettor’s Delight’s juveniles where impressive on Vicbred semi final night at Melton.
