Phillip’s first Group 1 winner out of his Pakenham Racing Stables was the Dalziel Racing Syndicated gelding Mr Quickie, who won the 2019 QLD Derby.

Hear what miRunners Head of Bloodstock Mick Malone thinks of this purchase

“By one of the hottest stallions in the country in Extreme Choice, his statistics are of the scale never have we seen a stallion with sire stats like him. And this particular colt is only one of 15 colts born by Extreme Choice in 2021. And I truly believe we purchased value early Day 1 Lot 69, had he have gone through later in the sale he would have fetched a lot higher price, especially seeing Extreme Choice sell to 1,000,000 day 2 and beyond.

A lovely physical, this bloke has everything I look for, bone, substance, action with a terrific attitude never put a foot wrong. A machine!”
