Purchased at the Tattersalls Book 2 sale, this filly is by Mastercraftsman, who needs no introduction, neither as a racehorse nor as 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. 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.
Training Update: A very well bred Mastercraftsman filly, who is very highly regarded by Marco and the team. He is convinced she’s a black type filly, bordering on Group class, we are led to believe. If he’s right, she’ll always retain plenty of residual value, so we look set for a very exciting Summer ahead with her. Probably will operate between 9f and 1m4f, so it’s anyone’s guess what sort of races she could be competing in. The upper end of our expectations could easily be a festival Group race or two.
