One of the sires of the moment has to be the sensational Showcasing, Whitsbury Manor’s showpiece stallion. He’s been quite a revelation at stud, from the quite humble beginnings of a £5000 initial nomination fee. We can’t tell you how thrilled we were to secure the Tattersalls Ascot Sales’ topper, for £50,000, this beautiful, loose moving yearling filly. She really ticked all our boxes at the sale and we knew it would prove to be very tough, amongst the opposition, to bring her home to Musley Bank. We had to dig really deep, but rest assured, we’ve been able to secure for this filly’s future owners, a no compromise individual, who in addition, packs a hugely punchy page. She really does have it all; the looks AND the pedigree to back it up, including hailing from the family of the Champion Sprinter Lochnager.
Being by Showcasing, she ought to carry with her, a fair residual value for the paddocks and assuming she wins a race or earns black type her value could be well enhanced. She's a powerful looking filly and the fact that she has some substance to her, means we can look forward to her beyond just a 2 year old career.
Here she is at home:
Training Update (31st December): Made a great start to her career, in finishing 3rd on debut, but seemed to enter into the wilderness thereafter, and we couldn’t work out why? She was found to have a tumour in her foot, which we’ve now removed and she’s back on the road to the track. With this behind her, there should be plenty of fun to be had with her throughout 2021.
