Could history repeat for Mongolian Khan connections

Derby’s and Oaks penciled in for progeny of Mongolian Khan.  


The Murray Baker/Andrew Forsman trained three year old Mongolian Wings made it back to back wins yesterday winning over a mile, going up in grade and winning easily by three lengths. The win now has him shortening to $16 for the NZ Derby next March.  


“I think the step up in trip helped as he is a promising stayer,” Forsman said. “He took a lot from his recent maiden (1400m) win and as he steps up in distance, we expect he will keep improving.”


Baker/Forsman also trained Mongolian Wings’ dual Derby winning sire and back to back Horse Of The Year Mongolian Khan for the same owners, the Inner Mongolian Rider Horse group.

Mongolian Khan has a number of promising first-crop progeny to represent him this Summer and Autumn including the Jamie Richards trained dual winner Supreme Khan who has next month’s Listed Karaka Million Mile on his agenda while the promising Stephen Marsh trained three year old Ulaanbaatar also holds a Derby nomination.

Last week in Victoria Breeze’n’Luna, from the Danny O’Brien team, won easily at just her third start  

while the highly regarded Clayton Chipperfield trained filly Black Queen is eyeing up the Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks in March as a longer range target.


Mongolian Khan has 17 yearlings catalogued in next month’s New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sales series at Karaka,
