When Farnan crossed the line in front at Canberra on his debut, the victory marked a significant milestone for Phoenix Thoroughbreds. Not only was the colt signalling he had plenty of latent talent, but he also became the Dubai based group's first homebred winner.
The colt made it two wins out of two when winning the Magic Millions Wyong Classic and in doing so booking his place in the Magic Millions Two-Year-Old Classic at the Gold Coast. Although prevailing circumstances meant we didn't see the best of the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trainee in the premier juvenile contest, he has since proven again to be an animal full of ability. A dominant display in the Silver Slipper at Randwick saw him come home a comfortable winner by just shy of three-and-a-half length. That was followed by an equally impressive win in the Group Two Todman Stakes to mark him as the favourite for the Group One Golden Slipper Stakes.
Under a classy ride from Hugh Bowman, the colt made no mistake in the World's most valuable two-year-old race, making all to win by a comfortable two lengths.
Marked as an heir apparent to his father Not A Single Doubt he has an exciting future both on the track and as a stallion and has become one of the most talked-about horses in Australia.
