Homebred shows will to win29 Dec 2023

Immediacy showed a ton of tenacity to make a winning debut over 1500 metres at Cranbourne after looking to be in serious trouble before the turn.

The Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young-trained son of Tarzino settled back in the field and was under heavy riding 800 metres from home and was still a fair way off the pace at the top of the straight.

He switched back to the inside halfway down the run home and then produced a determined finishing burst along the fence for rider Luke Currie to win at the first time of asking.

“He’s still very new and did a lot wrong so to win was a very good effort,” Currie said.

“He’s going to get over more ground and is still a work in progress.”

Immediacy is a home-bred son of Tarzino and we will be offering his half-sister by Hello Youmzain as Lot 626 during the Book 1 session at next month’s New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale.

They are out of the Pivotal mare But Beautiful, who was successful on three occasions up to 1600 metres in her native England, and she is a half-sister to the stakes winners Ayrad and Dawn Of Hope.

But Beautiful’s second dam is the G1 Beverley DS Stakes winner Fire The Groom, mother of the multiple Group 1-winning sprinter Stravinsky, who enjoyed such a distinguished stallion career at Cambridge Stud.

All four of But Beautiful’s foals to race have been successful and she is in foal to Embellish.

Immediacy was originally bought out of Kiltannon Stables’ draft at Karaka for $15,000 by Game Lodge and was subsequently bought by Busuttin Racing and Group 1 Racing for $200,000 when offered by Riverrrock Farm at the Ready to Run Sale.
