Equiano flyer Belvoir Bay streeted a strong field of two year-olds by 7 lengths in the LR Blue Norther Stakes (1600m) at Santa Anita on Sunday.

Last-start Moonee Valley winner Marli Magic has a pedigree that’s produced top-class gallopers for Swettenham Stud’s Sangster family going back to Group 1 champion Pure Of Heart.
Marli Magic was a $50,000 graduate from Adam Sangster’s Inglis Premier draft in 2012 and she will be back in action in the next fortnight. The mare has already earned $196,305 including $31,000 in Super VOBIS bonuses.
