The Tony Pike trained Sacred Elixir made a huge impression when he scored a one and a quarter lengths win in a 1400m two year old Handicap at the Sunshine Coast on May 11 with Damian Browne in the saddle.

Purton will take over from Browne on Sacred Elixir who is one of seventeen juveniles nominated for the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

The globetrotting jockey has ridden with success in the past for Raffles Racing and was able to win the 2014 Group 1 $3m The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick in the Autumn and the Group 1 $350,000 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick later that year in the Spring on their tough miler Sacred Falls.

Bruce Sherwin, spokesman for the gelding’s owners Raffles Racing, has reported that Sacred Elixir has come through his run at the Sunshine Coast in fine order and is looking forward to seeing the gelding progress onto the Group 1 $600,000 BMW J.J. Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm on June 11.

“Everything has gone well with him since Caloundra and the 1350 metres on Saturday fits very well going forward to the 1600 of the J.J. Atkins,” Sherwin told The Informant.

“That’s his target and Tony is very happy with him.”

Sacred Elixir has only been to the races four times and has been in the winner’s stall on two occasions with his other win being a 1200m two year old Plate at Ellerslie on January 9.

Sacred Elixir will again be up against the John and Chris Meagher trained Meet And Greet who finished third in the race at the Sunshinne Coast.

John O’Shea will have the J J Atkins favourite Souchez going around in the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes and the Lonhro colt is coming off a third behind Winning Rupert and Attention in the Group 2 $175,000 Moet & Chandon Champagne Classic (1200m) at Doomben on May 14.

The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Attention is also among the nominations for the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes along with his stablemate Jericho who finished a game second to Archives in the Listed $100,000 McGrath Estate Agents Hampden Stakes (1200m) at Doomben last Saturday.

Early market order for the J J Atkins at Ladbrokes.com.au: $3.60 Souchez, $6.50 Cadogan, $7 Chipanda, $8 Attention, $10 Redouble, Sacred Elixir, $11 Jericho, $13 Inference, Nikitas, $15 Biased Witness, Royal Tithe, $17 Candika, Curvature, Hair Trigger, Jaws Of Steel, Kent.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user
    friendliness and appearance. I must say you have done
    a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!|

    Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know a lot approximately this, such
    as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you could do with some p.c.
    to power the message home a bit, but instead
    of that, that is great blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
