Are you looking for something a bit out of the ordinary? If like many you’ve experienced that “big is not always better” in racing and you’ve dreamt of a boutique stable with a trainer caring for less than 10 horses, one who can give your galloper the time, consideration and attention it deserves; then racing this filly could be for you.
Often when racing in a smaller stable you could be trading size for experience, but you will not find a better quality trainer than Paul Jenkins. This quietly spoken Kiwi has already trained multiple Group 1 winners on Australasian soil and is currently striking at near enough 20% winners to runners.
Paul went back to New Zealand in January, looking for some quality bloodstock supplied by vendors he trusts, from families he knows that have been raised in some of the finest pastures in the world, those with a proven track record of developing quality and sound racehorses.
From Karaka Book 1 he purchased this outstanding filly by Iffraag, a serious sire who has already produced 10 individual Group 1 winners around the world. Horses such as Turn Me Loose (NZ 2000 Guineas, Futurity Stakes) Chriselliam, a Champion Breeders Cup winning filly in the US, Gingernuts (Rosehill Guineas, NZ Derby) and Jungle Cat who won Group 1s in both Dubai and Australia. Iffraaj is a sire with the capacity to produce a runner at the very highest level.
This filly’s dam is a multiple winner for More Than Ready and is a daughter of Insouciant, winner of the NZ 1000 Guineas and NZ Bloodstock filly of the year. This is a serious filly that lacks nothing in either pedigree or type.
The filly is still with her breeder, Pencarrow Stud, who have produced champion horses such as Ethereal (Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup and BMW) and Darci Brahma (Champion Gr 1 winner at 2, 3 and 4). She will benefit from the New Zealand Summer and Autumn and arrive in Queensland in April/May to enjoy the best place in Australia to have a horse in Winter.
We think this filly ticks all the boxes. A first class sire, a dam line that includes three NZ 1000 Guineas winners in the first 4 dams, a multiple Group 1 winning trainer working from the Sunshine Coast Turf Club; the same facilities that produced Australian Guineas winner Alligator Blood.
