Purchased at the Tattersalls Book 2 sale, this filly is by Mastercraftsman, who needs no introduction, neither as a racehorse nor a sire, as the Racing Post describe him in their stallion synopsis “Champion 2yo; won National & Phoenix Stakes; won two Group 1's at 3, inc Irish Guineas; quality sire.” Read more about him here: https://coolmore.com/stallions/mastercraftsman
He’s the sire of Alpha Centuri, Kingston Hill, Amazing Maria, The Grey Gatsby as well as many many more, so therein lies the potential that this filly possesses. You can see why we’ve decided to dig deep to secure her - not that she’s an out and out 2yo, far from it. She looks the perfect blend of strength and substance, but the size and quality, especially of movement, to believe she will progress still further, throughout her 3yo career as she encounters a distance of ground. Her fabulous sire, is only part of the reason she appealed; take a look at her dam’s achievements and pedigree, to boot. The mare by the fantastic broodmare sire GREEN DESERT from the family of Hit The Bid, Log Out Island, Bold Edge, Selinka and Brave Edge, she’s already produced the 107p Timeform rated Berkshire Blue (by Champs Elysees.)
This filly has fantastic looks, with such strength and depth to her, from her withers to her shoulder, yet she’s very athletic too from her withers to her tail. She moves like a dream and looks the archetypal, progressive individual, that suits Newmarket so well. Her colour is just lovely, with the grey of her sire coming through. Furthermore, she has a very exciting and progressive pedigree. She’s looks a high class middle distance 3yo in the making.
With Marco Botti training her, we know we are in very safe hands and with this sensational looking filly and possessing her super pedigree, we could well be looking forward to some very exciting times. Were this filly to prove to be a listed or Group performer, it would come as little surprise. However, whatever he level of ability, she will be carefully and studiously managed by Marco and the MPR team.
Here's the latest video of her (far side):
Training Update: Made 75,000gns as a yearling. A very well bred Mastercraftsman 2yo filly, who is unraced as yet, but very highly regarded by Marco and the team. She’ll make her debut just after Christmas, all being well. We’re hoping she’ll make up into a black type, middle distance performer next summer.
