Murrumbidgee Turf Club (MTC) director Brett Bradley had plenty of reasons to smile when Yes Yes Yes claimed the third installment of the $14 million Everest at Randwick on Saturday.
Bradley bred the colt, who can now claim to be one of the world's best sprinters.
Yes Yes Yes is out of Bradley's mare Sin Sin Sin, who he raced with Trevor Sutherland.
He sold the colt for $200,000 at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale and could not have been prouder to watch him take down a hot field in The Everest (1200m) on Saturday.
"It was amazing. It was pretty incredible to have a horse even in the race, yet to win it was a great feeling," Bradley said.
"Obviously I don't have a share in Yes Yes Yes but I feel closer to the horse than if I had brought a share last week because of the connection with the mare. Despite not being an owner, it's still a great feeling and I still feel very lucky to have the involvement with the horse."
Bradley watched the race at home in Wagga with his wife Andrea and their family and friends.
He described the win as the highlight of his breeding career.
"As far as breeding goes, it's the highlight," he said.
"In terms of racing, I have a soft spot for Foreteller. He won three group ones."
Bradley is set to reap the rewards of Yes Yes Yes' big win. He has a 'cracking colt' by Sebring, out of Sin Sin Sin, to sell at next year's yearling sales.
The mare did not have a foal last year, after being late the previous year, and has been served by Zoustar this season.
