Blue Point reaps The Championships Day One rewards at Royal Randwick

A Group 3 double sees weanling siblings' pedigree receive a boost

Without realising it, two weanlings by Blue Point have just seen their value skyrocket, and that's well before they are due to step out on the racetrack.

Breeders who supported triple Royal Ascot sprint king, Blue Point, were rewarded on Saturday, 2 April at Royal Randwick when the progeny of their dams produced impressive victories in the two-year-old G3 Kindergarten Stakes and G3 PJ Bell Stakes for the three-year-old fillies respectively.

Semillion opened The Championships card with a high-class win which cemented his trainers' belief in him when taking out the G3 Widden Kindergarten Stakes having placed second in the G3 Blue Diamond Prelude (Colts) beating eventual G1 Blue Diamond Stakes winner Daumier (Epaulette) into third place.

The Hawkes-trained colt's dam Sistonic foaled a Blue Point colt on a 2 August date making him a half-brother to a now juvenile Group 3 winner.

Bookending the Royal Randwick racecard, Heresy produced a dominant win taking out the G3 PJ Bell Stakes in the final race closing out Day One's card.

Heresy's dam Montsegur has a weanling half-sister to Heresy and is back in foal to Blue Point.

To add to the excitement of Blue Point, Darley stallion prospect Anamoe will welcome a half-sibling with his dam Anamato in foal to the Royal Ascot sprint king.
