Denise's Joy family just seeps the stakeswinners coming

5 September 2005

The potential of the young second season sire Conatus who is one of only three sires in the Southern Hemisphere from the fabulous Denises’ Joy family was further highlighted with yet another new black-type winner emerging from the remarkable Australian family.

The ability of the family to keep on producing high-class Australian stakewinners was highlighted again when the lightly raced Primus (Flying Spur-Copa De Oro) won the $80,000 Listed Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) for colts and geldings at Randwick on Saturday September 3rd.

Primus, a NZ $120,000 yearling at the NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale now has 2 wins and a placing form 3 starts for $68,260 in prizemoney.

Primus is out of the young Hector Protector mare Copa De Oro who is in turn out of Clifton Gardens, a daughter of the Champion Broodmare Denise’s Joy.
