Emirates Park-bred Legislation made an immediate impact on the 2017/18 juvenile division when scoring an impressive win on debut at Randwick.
Ridden handy to the lead in the 1000 metres affair, the handsome son of Not a Single Doubt easily took control of the contest with 300m to race before going on to score under a hands and heel ride by Queensland-based rider Damian Browne.
Legislation won the event — the $100,000 ATC Daily Press Kirkham Plate — by one-length. His first-start success followed two placings in easy barrier trials during the month leading up to his eagerly anticipated racecourse debut.
Part-owned by Emirates Park in association with Newgate S F, China Horse Club Racing Pty Ltd, Horse Ventures, Winstar Farm Llc and Nick Vass Bloodstock, Legislation was a $525,000 purchase at the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. He is the fourth foal of the imported mare Golden Edict (USA), a three-time winner over 1100-1200m in North America.
Inescapable on the pedigree page of Legislation is the name of Secret Savings (USA), a full-brother to his 2nd-dam Jurisprudence. Secret Savings (USA), of course, was imported by Emirates Park principal His Excellency Nasser Lootah before winning the 1997 Group 1 AJC Doncaster Handicap and going on to a distinguished stud career at Emirates Park.
Legislation was sent to the spelling paddock shortly after his impressive Randwick win in preparation for a summer-autumn campaign likely to include the 2-year-old division's 2018 majors.
