Bam goes bang at Balaklava

Friday, 19 July 2019 | Bam has won his fourth race in 10 starts for trainer Dennis McMahon and Geisel Park sire All American at Balaklava.

The improving miler gave jockey Jason Potter an easy winning percentage in the Coopers Hcp (1600m) on Wednesday.  “There was no pace on paper so when they steadied I decided to go to the front.  He’s a lovely, big horse and kept finding to get the job done.”

Bam (pictured) graduated from the 2016 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale for $45,000 and has been given time while maturing into a giant.

His dam Milande (Dehere) has also foaled Brisbane stakes winner Traveston Girl (Flying Spur).  It’s the family of Dehere’s Group 1 star Defier.

“He stood 17 hands when he arrived from Melbourne last year,” McMahon recalled.  “I tipped him out for a spell and when we got him back he was 17.2 hands!

“He’s a beautiful animal and I told the owners he will be winning up to 2000m this time in.”

In Japan, All American’s Group 1 winning champion Yankee Rose had her first foal make 210 million yen (AUD 2.77 million) at the JRHA Sale in Hokkaido earlier this month.

The Deep Impact – Yankee Rose filly was purchased by Kaneko Makoto who raced Deep Impact to the Japanese Triple Crown in 2005.  Makoto, 74, is President of Zuken Inc. a multinational corporation on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.  He also owns the exclusive King Kamehameha Golf Club in Hawaii.

All American (Red Ransom) stands at Geisel Park for a $6,600 service fee with French Group 1 winner Vert De Grece ($5,500).
