Newmarket - THE SHADWELL ROCKFEL STAKES
Purchased at THE sale for 2 year old's; the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, this filly is by GREGORIAN. Read about her sire here: http://www.rathaskerstud.com/stallion/Gregorian
Richard Hannon's both Senior and Junior have made a career out of campaigning inexpensive, tough 2yo's in the very best races. From horses such as Thatching, Don't Forget Me and Lyric Fantasy in the early days, right through to Tiggy Wiggy, Billesdon Brook and Sky Lantern latterly. In recent times, both Richards have plundered the huge pot sales races with fillies such as Ginger Nut and Stormy Clouds as well as Tangled and Log Out Island.
We've a perfect individual here for both the Weatherby's Super Sprint and the Doncaster Sales race, which carry over £550,000 in prize money between them; her sales price of £15,000 qualifies her too for just about every fillies' race out there in 2019 and placing her to win races really ought to be on our agenda throughout the season.
Our filly is by the top class sire Gregorian who is the sire of 12.2% Black Type performers from his first crop. He was bred in the purple and shaping like a sire to follow; he sired 12 winners in his first season at stud. Our filly from a family of almost a dozen black type performers. She looks a strong, robust and speedy filly. She's a fantastic way of going and she looks tailor made for Richard and his regime.
