This filly was bought from the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sales on September 1st 2020.
Nick purchased this Galileo Gold filly from Tally Ho Stud for 15,000 pounds. Tally Ho have been producing winners galore for the last 25 years and this filly looks like being another fine filly from them.
She is a strong well put together filly, who we felt was the best filly amongst the Tally Ho draft this year. She is an excellent mover and looks like a filly who will start over 6 furlongs looking at her physically and at her pedigree.
Her conformation is good without being perfect which may have been why she was purchased cheaper than expected. She toes in marginally on her near fore leg which is due to her being so strong being out of the wide chested Zebedee mare.
Nick expected her to cost double her price tag at the very lowest and came well recommended to him by Roger O Callaghan of Tally Ho Stud.
She is the third foal out of the Zebedee mare Ballet of Doha who is a sister to stakes performer Baltic Knight. Ballet of Doha bred the speedy four time winner Alicia Darcy who was unfortunate not to win at 2 after finishing 4th in the Listed, Empress Stakes.
Karl Burke was very keen on the filly, so much so that he personally took a 50% share in her himself. Nick and Karl have teamed up year after year to produce Stakes winning fillies with Dandalla winning the Group 3, Albany at Royal Ascot and the Group 2, Cherry Hinton at Newmarket.
