The Journeys Start to Win Big!

THIS IS SOUND JOURNEY. He is a 3 year old colt by Good Journey racing in Australia. On February 16, 2008, he won a Grade II race at one mile with a purse of $159,896. Sound Journey is the first graded stakes winning horse from Bright's sire - Good Journey. He's got another horse in Australia named "Grand Journey" who is also doing well. At the current time, 16 Good Journey horses have raced in Australia and 9 of them have won. They have a win percentage of 17.9% which is considered high. The Australian racing press says that Good Journey is "princely bred." Good Journey's half brother, Aldebaran (by Mr. Prospector), is now the leading second crop sire by earnings in the United States. Good Journey's US crop will not be ready to run until at least 2010 and Bright is part of his first crop. This is all good for Bright's future prospects.
