Brilliant debut from Better Land
From the final Australian-conceived crop of Darley stallion Shamardal, the Laurel Oak-part owned Better Land scored in impressive fashion on his racetrack debt at Sale on April 6.
Secured from the 2013 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Edinglassie Stud for $400,000, the son of former top-class Redoute’s Choice juvenile Amelia’s Dream looked very classy in his three length victory.
While it is only the first winner from the mare, if the calibre of the success of Brilliant Land’s victory is anything to go by, then Amelia’s Dream looks capable of becoming a very good broodmare.
Brilliant Land has now headed to the paddock and looks a very capable type for the spring with many top lass stakes races on offer to the three-year-olds early in the piece highlighted by the Group One Golden Rose.
