This filly is the third foal out of the mare Overheard. Overheard is a filly that Nick bought as a foal through Tally Ho Stud and then sold to Cheveley Park Stud who raced her. She was trained by Jeremy Noseda. She was no great shakes on the track, but she suffered from tendonitis throughout her career and that held her back significantly.
Her first foal was by Zebedee and she was a very good foal. Unfortunately, she went to a sale where there were literally 6 buyers present. She was viewed 3 times and one of those was the auctioneer!! She won twice for her buyers and was a winner at 2 and at 3 in Europe.
The second foal is a colt called Dandys Derriere, who was sold at the Premier Yearling Sale and made £40,000. He has run once so far and finished second on debut for Brian Meehan at Newbury in early July. He has numerous entries this week, including at Goodwood, and holds an entry in the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sales race at York at the end of August.
This is a yearling that Nick has loved from day one. She is an outstanding mover and very much in the same mould as her brother Dandys Derriere. She has been in yearling prep training and has been accepted to go to both the Tattersalls and Doncaster Premier Yearling Sales. But this is a filly that Nick loves to bits and has decided that he wants to race himself. Nick has kept a significant share in her as he believes she is a filly that will make up into a black type filly in 2021.
She is very strong and quite strong willed. On the lunge she is as good as Nick has at home and is probably the best filly that Nick has ever bred.
Nick expects to see her running over 6 furlongs next year in April / May and hopes that she is a filly that we will be taking to Royal Ascot and then the same black type races that we have targeted to such success this year with Dandalla and Fev Rover. She is a filly very much in the same mould as Dandalla which is why Nick thought Karl would be the best person to train her. Karl Burke has seen photos and videos and is very keen to train her.
This filly comes highly recommended and as there are limited shares available, anyone interested in getting involved should contact Nick ASAP as this is sure to be a popular filly.
She is 50% qualified for the Great British Bonus Filly Bred Scheme, whereby she would earn a £10,000 bonus for every race that she wins. Further details of the scheme can be found by clicking below.
