Trainer: Kevin Ryan
Dam's Sire: Kodiac
Purchase Date: 22/4/2021
This filly was purchased as Lot 2 at the Goffs Doncaster Breeze Ups on 22nd April 2021 for £42,000.
Nick has had tremendous success at the Breeze ups in previous years, the highlight being the purchase of Group 1 winner, Donjuan Triumphant for just 30,000 Guineas.
This filly stands around 15'1 and is by arguably the best 2yo stallion in Europe at the moment in Mehmas. She was a filly that was mentioned to Nick around a month before the breeze ups as one of three fillies which Tally Ho felt were their best fillies heading to the breeze ups in 2021.
The first by Practical Joke sold for 360,000 guineas at the Craven, this was the second to sell and the third filly lot 127 at the Goffs sale made £95,000 so we hope we have secured a bit of value. At this sale last year Tally Ho Stud sold Umm Kulthum for £75,000, who went on to win the Group 3, Firth of Clyde at Ayr and finish 3rd in the Group 1, Cheveley Park Stakes.
She is an attractive filly with a good action. On her breeze she stood out as being an athlete as she galloped up the middle of the track. She had an excellent head carriage, something that you see quite often with the progeny of Mehmas.
Comparing her breeze to the other 150 horses who breezed on the day, our filly was the 19th fastest overall. She cruised through her first furlong in 10.7 seconds and then accelerated in the final furlong when asked to clock up a time of 10.51. To put that in context the fastest final furlong was 10.36.
Similar fillies at the sales clocked up big prices in the ring with the following lots being fillies who breezed similar times but recorded far bigger sales prices, Lots 41 £150k, lot 51 £60k, lot 105 £62k, lot 126 £90k, lot 127 £95k and lot 154 £180k.
This filly joins Kevin Ryan who has hit the ground running in 2021 with him having several 2yo winners in the first month of the season. Kevin actually bought the filly on spec and didn't have an owner for her, which indicates how much he liked the filly. Nick underbid the filly in the ring at £41,000 and then contacted Kevin after the sale had concluded. It was very evident that this filly was the bargain filly of the sale and had she sold later in the day would have made a lot more than £42,000.
We expect her to be on the track in May as a 2yo, once she has had a short break to get over the Breeze Up sales experience. She will qualify to run in the restricted races for Group B,C,and D fillies having cost just under the £45,000 price barrier.
She is from the family of Sole Power who was the Champion 3 year old sprinter in Europe in 2010. Looking at her pedigree you would expect her to be campaigned over 6 to 7 furlongs and hopefully she can win a Novice early in the season and then progress to Stakes races.
