Eight-length winner delivers for Pariah

Fresh from a $124,000 Inglis Classic Sale average for 19 yearlings, Pariah has posted his first winner and she could not have been more impressive.

The 2YO filly Nalabelle  romped to an 8-length victory over 1000 metres at Wagga on Thursday, cutting out the last 600 metres in 33.20, despite being under no pressure from her rivals.

Clearly enjoying the summer footing more than the Heavy9 ground she struck for her debut fourth in November, Nalabelle went straight to the front, had the field in trouble on the turn and responded generously when asked to sprint home.

Bred by Queensland breeder Nick Nolan of Noralla Stud and bought by her trainer Nick Olive for $32,000 at Magic Millions, Nalabelle is the second foal and first winner out of Rivadorf (by Danewin), a half-sister to Listed winner Dorf Command. 

Pariah’s first runners also include the Annabel Neasham-trained colt Swiss Exile, placed at Listed & Group 3 level in his first three starts.

Thirty-two of Pariah’s second-crop yearlings have sold at Magic Millions and Inglis Classic, averaging $116,000 (5.8 x his fee) and achieving a top price of $280,000 for Toolooganvale Farm’s filly out of Hell It’s Hot. 

The brilliant Group-winning son of Redoute’s Choice has 11 lots in upcoming sales: 4 at Inglis Melbourne Premier, 5 at Adelaide Magic Millions and two in Arrowfield’s draft at Inglis Easter
