2YO Bay Filly
Trainer: George Boughey
Dam: Scent Of Roses
Dam's Sire: Invincible Spirit
Purchase Date: 02/09/20
This filly was purchased at the Goffs Premier Yearling sales on 2nd September 2020. She was purchased for 9,000 pounds.
This was a filly that Nick earmarked as one of the fillies that he really wanted to purchase from this sale.
She is an incredibly strong filly and one who looks very much like a colt. Nick viewed this filly three times at the stable and once at the ring. She is a very good mover and in Nick's opinion one of the top ten fillies in the sale.
On seeing her the first time (Sunday), this filly was behaving poorly and hadn't settled into the sales environment at all. Nick saw her again on Monday and Tuesday and on both days her behaviour was much better.
Her conformation isn't perfect and clearly put a lot of agents off from buying her. She toed in noticeably on her near fore leg but Nick was happy to take a chance on her at the price and would have bought her up to around 30,000. There were yearlings with similar confirmations making 30 to 50k
She is by one of the best stallions in Europe in Acclamation who has sired the likes of Dark Angel, Mehmas, Equiano, Marsha and Aclaim to name but a handful of his star-studded progeny.
The pedigree is very much unproven on the dam's side as the mare Scent of Roses has had just one runner to date. Further down the page, there is plenty of pace in the pedigree with Sir Prancealot being under the second Dam.
She carries the £10,000 GB Fillies Bonus which means that every time she wins a nominated race, she earns the connections a £10,000 Bonus on top of the prize money. The owners receive 65% of that bonus. This figure is not £20,000 as she was produced by an Irish based stallion.
She joins George Boughey who has had an outstanding 2020 with 19 winners on the board already by 3rd September, scoring at an incredible 18% with very cheaply sourced horses. George is a highly motivated young man who is striving for success and together with Nick Bradley Racing should be bound for the top in 2021. George is excellent with owners and has impressed the Mystery Angel and Silent Queen owners already on yard visits.
