This filly is by the Champion Australian 3yo Colt Star Witness who is doing a terrific job at stud - already producing horses such as multiple Gr.1 winner Global Glamour and Star Turn.
This filly has everything we need to see, athletic with the scope to develop into a classy 3yo middle distance runner. Physically she’s strong, correct and moves along with a fluid action.
Her sire Star Witness was a 2yo of the highest quality, winning his first 3 starts including the Gr.1 Blue Diamond Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield.
At 3 he proved to be the best sprinter in his age group, winning the Gr.1 Coolmore Stud Stakes and defeating horses such as topline sprinter Buffering. In his next start he ran the bravest of seconds to the unbeatable Black Caviar in the Gr.1 Patinack Farm Classic, leaving behind an entire field of Gr.1 winners including Ortensia, All Silent, Melito and Hay List.
After a short preparation in Victoria he travelled to Europe to take on their best sprinters at Weight for Age, running a close second in the Gr. 1 King’s Stand Stakes and a brave third in the Golden Jubilee Stakes after finding himself in front too early and tiring late in the soft going.
Retiring from the track, Star Witness has done a great job in the breeding barn for Widden Stud - this being reflected by his 2016 service fee of $22,000 rising to $33,000 in 2017. In order to achieve this fee rise he has been producing a line-up of quality horses including 12 Stakes winners and 9 Stakes place getters - giving him a very credible 7.9% black type ratio.
The dam of this filly, Incensed, was a Darley filly that remained unraced due to a barrier incident. We feel she has a quality pedigree to underpin her chances of succeeding in the breeding barn. She is by Strategic who won the Gr. 1 William Reid Stakes and has at stud produced 27 Stakes winners including Gr.1 winners Mistegic (Champion 3yo Sprinter) and Meurice (Champion 2yo).
The dam of Incensed - Zacheline - is a daughter of the renowned Zabeel, winner of the Gr.1 Caulfield Guineas, twice-named Champion Australian Sire, twice-named Champion Australian Broodmare Sire, and crowned New Zealand Champion Sire a total of 15 times. Zabeels’s progeny include 46 individual Gr. 1 winners including Octagonal, Might and Power, Efficient, Savabeel, and Jezabeel and have accumulated more than $186 million in prize money. When breeding there is no ground more solid than finding Zabeel in a mare’s pedigree. On the racetrack Zacheline was a classy and very tough mare who won twice at Gr.1 level in both the Queensland and South Australian Oaks along with a close-up 4th in the VRC Oaks.
This filly was bred and raised at Rosemont Stud in Victoria who last year produced four individual Gr.1 winners. An incredible record which shows the quality that this medium sized farm can achieve from smaller numbers.
