Naas - The Irish EBF Ballyhane Stakes
SHOWCASING - the Group One speed sire as he’s known – has become a sire sensation in recent years. In 2018 he was the second leading British based sire of 2yos in Europe, behind Dubawi. Read more about him here: https://www.whitsburymanorstud.co.uk/showcasemain.html
This filly, bought at the recent Goffs Sportsman's sale, looks a ball of speed herself and is an exciting addition to MPR Ireland for the season ahead. With an abundance of speed on the dam’s side too, she looks sure to be sharp and early. What she may lack in height at this point in the year, she certainly does not lack in strength and John Murphy, whom she will be trained by, was delighted to purchase her in connection with MPR. Having purchased the top lot the day before, this filly was the main reason John came back to the sale the next day and we were delighted to secure her for what looks fantastic value at €26,000.
John is renowned for moving horses on when they are on the up but it hasn’t stopped him gaining plenty of success over the years on the racecourse. He recently sold the top two lots at the Goffs Champions boutique sale for £200,000 and £100,000 – who knows this is very well where our filly could be offered for sale next year.
Pedigree update to her page: "2nd dam FRAULEIN (GB): dam of KHUKRI (IRE) (g. by Sepoy (AUS)): winner at 5, 2019 in Macau."
