This filly was bought by Nick Bradley at the Tattersalls Guineas 2021 Breeze Ups.
Nick underbid Far Above at this sale a couple of years ago and winners such as Baronial Pride and Kodi Dream have been bought from this sale in previous years.
This filly put up a very nice breeze up the Rowley Mile course on what was very fast ground on the day. She travelled within herself over the downhill first furlong but once she hit the rising ground she extended nicely and really picked up to record a very good time. First furlong 11.65 (105th fastest), Second Furlong 11.31 (22nd fastest). What really impressed Nick was the way she galloped out after the line, it was clear that she was just getting going as her gallop out, 4.16 seconds was the 12th fastest of the 189 2yos to gallop on the day. Visually on her gallop out up the Newmarket hill she was one of two or three 2yos who strode out the best after the line.
She had been prepped for the breeze on the Old Vic at The Curragh and the consignors reported that she would work up the stiff hill and they felt she would always be doing her best work at the top of the hill. The consignors felt that she was a very straightforward filly who was well bought at the price.
Her dam Deemah was successful over a mile at 3 and her sire Fast Company's average winning distance of his progeny is 8.3 furlongs so on pedigree you would expect this filly to make up into a miler on the track.
Fast Company's progeny seem to relish cut in the ground when looking at his stats with just a 5% strike rate on Firm ground but a much more successful 14% strike rate on Soft ground. The horses on 28th April were galloping on ground which was incredibly fast, with the Uk having had the driest April for over 40 years. It is therefore fair to say that the underfoot conditions would not have suited this filly, so to do such a very good time on the conditions has to suggest that this filly has a lot of ability.
Physically this filly is very good looking, standing around 15'3 she is a dark bay filly with one white sock. She is a elegant mover with a good action. She has the frame of a miler, rather than a sprinter and looking at her front legs you would imagine they would benefit from some soft ground, as she toes out on both forelegs.
Nick was prepared to go alot higher than the 13,000 Guineas she was bought for and she joins the Karl Burke yard who Nick has teamed up with in recent years with the likes of Dandalla and Little Kim to win at Group level with. We expect this filly to be ready to run in June/July when the 7 furlong races get underway.
