Promising Winner for Haradasun

Former champion three year-old Haradasun was in the frame at Warwick Farm on Saturday with a promising winner in Harada Bay (3g Haradasun x Acacia Bay, by Rodrigo de Triano).

The Trevor Bailey trained gelding was easy in the market, but belied a lack of interest from punters to power clear and win the 1400 Benchmark 75 event over 1400 metres by nearly two lengths.

An $80,000 purchase for Ontrack Thoroughbreds from the Old Crossing draft at the 2011 Magic Millions, Harada Bay has proven a good investment for his big team of owners winning three of seven starts and more than $105,000 in prizemoney.

Harada Bay is the first winner for Acacia Bay, a half-sister by Rodrigo de Triano to Group I winner Calveen, Group II winner Kosi Bay and stakes-winner Striker.

He is another smart winner for Haradasun, who is currently running second on the Australian Second Season Sires List with seven winners led by Group II winner Kabayan.
