JJ Atkins Ideal for Sacred Elixir

Sacred Elixir savaged the line in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) a fortnight ago, and trainer Tony Pike believes the two-year-old will be very hard to beat when he lines up for the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The 2016 BRC Sires Produce Stakes, formerly known as the QTC Sires Produce Stakes, is held in late May / early June at Eagle Farm Racecourse halfway between the Brisbane Airport and the Brisbane CBD. It’s an event for two-year-olds run over 1350m worth a quarter of a million dollars.

The BRC Sires Produce Stakes was inaugurated in 1916  and usually attracts horses coming from the Group 2 Champagne Classic two weeks earlier. Horses that pull up well after this race will generally try and step up in distance to tackle the Group 1 TJ Smith the next week on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

Pressday won the 2010 BRC Sires Produce Stakes after winning the Champagne Classic and he then went on to claim The TJ Smith the next week as well. Lovely Jubly performed the same feat in 2002 while Virage de Fortune fell one race short of the treble in 2005.

Gold Edition won the Champagne Classic in 2006 and then finished a game second in the Sires Produce Stakes. Impulsive Dream, Cat D’Antibes and Diamond Neck are all recent horses which placed in both the Champagne Classic and Sires Produce Stakes.
