New Approach off the mark in Australia

DARLEY sire New Approach, who enjoyed a stunning start with his his first runners in Europe this year, is off the mark in Australia courtesy of Montsegur, who landed the 5f Joe Brown Plate at Caulfield on Wednesday.

The Peter Snowden-trained juvenile broke well and always looked the winner, forging clear to win by three and quarter lengths.

Bred by Darley, Montsegur is the second winner produced by Chatoyant, a daughter of Flying Spur who is a half-sister to the the Group 3-winning pair Time Out and Legally Bay, the dam of this year's Group 2 winner Jolie Bay.

Chatoyant has a yearling filly by Street Sense and a colt foal by Street Cry.

New Approach, a five-time Group 1-winning son of Galileo, made a quick start with his first-crop runners in Europe, siring 12 individual winners, headed by the stakes-winning trio Tha'Ir, Newfangled and unbeaten dual Group 1 winner Dawn Approach.

Australian buyers will have the opportunity to purchase progeny by New Approach at next month's Magic Millions sale, where three yearlings are catalogued.
