Edwina Throsby bred and shared in the ownership of the great Chautauqua.
Now Throsby could have another future star which has hailed from her family's magnificent Maitland property after the win of Britain at Newcastle on Saturday.
The colt, a close relation to the former world's best sprinter, Chautauqua, created a huge impression when taking out the 900-metre two-year-old maiden plate by two lengths.
A son of champion sire Snitzel, Britain was starting for the third time and he drifted to $8, with form students and punters believing the 900m trip would be well short of his best.
In his first-up run on April 29 at Warwick Farm, Britain showed no speed over the 1100m course and he was 10th in a field of 11 at the top of the straight.
He made up many lengths to finish 3.5 lengths off the winner.
Britain is raced by a group including Throsby and is trained by Greg Hickman at Warwick Farm.
On Saturday, top Hunter jockey Andrew Gibbons was aboard Britain, which despite the shorter trip, settled much closer to the speed before taking over with 200m to go and racing away from his rivals.
Throsby said on Saturday that she has been very lucky with yearlings she has taken to the sales, given the two which didn't attract a bid.
"I sent Chautauqua to the Inglis sale and we never got a bid and he won $8.8 million," Throsby said.
"Britain went to the Magic Millions Yearling Sale and we never got a bid.
"Greg has a huge rap on him and he is heading in the right direction.
"His dam, London Lolly, a half-sister to Chautauqua, has a yearling colt to I Am Invincible and I didn't send him to the sales."
Chautauqua and London Lolly are from the Throsby family's group 1-winner, Lovely Jubly.
Hickman, who trained the recently retired Pierata - a winner of $4.5 million, did not hide his opinion of Britain.
"He is something special," Hickman said.
"He has so much improvement in him. Britain hasn't a clue what it's about yet and he could be a group horse.
"I will probably give him two more starts then send him to the paddock and bring him back for the Magic Millions Guineas in January."
Later in the day, Gibbons won on the Gerry Harvey-owned, Chris Waller-trained Split Not A Shock in the 1200m fillies and mares maiden handicap.
The double took Gibbons to 98 winners for the season.
Veteran Newcastle trainer Charlie Porter was back in the winners' circle with Mr Polar in the 900m benchmark 64 handicap.
Backed from double-figure odds into $6, Mr Polar jumped to the front and gave nothing a chance.
Former Kiwi jockey Amelia Denby, who is based in Newcastle these days, was aboard the winner.
As well as Gibbons, Keagan Latham rode a winning double at the meeting.
Latham took the John Sargent-trained Gunaluva and the Gerald Ryan-trained Peace Of Mind to victories.
