The first 2-year-old trials in Sydney will be held on Monday, September 18 at Randwick-Kensington. It is very well possible the next G1 Golden Slipper or G1 Blue Diamond, R. Listed Magic Millions 2YO Classic or R. Listed Inglis Millennium winners could be among them.
The first juvenile stakes race in Australia is the G3 Gimcrack S. for the fillies, and the G3 Breeders’ Plate for the colts and geldings will be held at Randwick on September 30.
Archibald told The Thoroughbred Report AusNZ, “These nine 2-year-olds will jump-out on Friday. Pending they come through the jump-out in good order, the plan is to push towards the Randwick trials on September 18.
“The trials will decide if any of them are ready to be lining up in a Breeders’ Plate or a Gimcrack Stakes.”

Superhero – Deep Field x Mine Two (I Am Invincible) (Colt)
Rounding out the nine highlighted gallopers is a 2-year-old colt by Newgate Farm’s pensioned Deep Field, Superhero.
The colt was a $340,000 purchase by Yes Bloodstock and Group 1 Bloodstock (FBAA) from the draft of Twin Hills Stud at the 2023 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
Superhero is the fourth foal from the I Am Invincible mare Mine Two. She won as a juvenile and was placed in the G3 Schweppervescence H. and finished fourth in the G2 Reisling S.
Mine Two is a half-sister to Spright (Hinchinbrook). She claimed the G1 Robert Sangster S. and the G3 Star Kingdom H. among his six victories.
Spright was also placed in the G1 Goodwood H. and the G1 Moir S. and finished fourth in the G1 Stradbroke H. and G1 Manikato S.
