The Yarraman Park-consigned From Within was reportedly always on trainer Chris Waller’s short list while shopping at last year’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, but he was outbid by Blue Sky Bloodstock’s Julian Blaxland at A$360,000. The September foal nevertheless ended up in Waller’s shedrow, and she could not have been more impressive in a pair of Sydney-area barrier trials ahead of this debut, winning by three front-running lengths at Rosehill Dec. 5 (video) before sailing home by 4 1/4 lengths at Warwick Farm Dec. 19 (video). Always traveling smartly in Saturday’s test with a berth in the A$2-million Jeep Magic Millions 2YO Classic looming, From Within opened up without ever being asked, kicked into an unassailable advantage emtering the final furlong and was geared down late. Invader (Aus) (Snitzel {Aus}), a debut fourth to ‘TDN Rising Star’ Khan (Aus) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}) in the Listed Breeders’ Plate in October, ran on to be second. “She is very professional. She’s a ready-made 2-year-old,” Waller told Racing and Sports. “The reason why she is here is because she has a great temperament. She knows what to do and relaxes and switches on. They are the things I’m looking for in a young horse. Obviously you are trying to identify the talent, but then it’s up to the trainer to make sure she’s got the mental composure to go with it.” From Within is a full-sister to Cruden Bay (Aus), SW-Aus, and is out of a half-sister to GSP Lady Cay (Aus). Zimaretto missed to I Am Invincible (Aus) for 2015, produced a filly by that sire Aug. 23 and returned to the Yarraman Park inmate this past breeding season. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, A$74,000.
