Bluebloods : Inglis Sydney Classic
JUST six kilometres west of Scone in the heart of Hunter Valley breeding territory is CrowningStone - a picturesque broodmare farm expertly run by Mike and Mia Thew. Dedicated to the care of the broodmare and her offspring, CrowningStone is set upon "excellent gently sloping grazing country and clean fertile loamy basalt soils with improved pastures". It is on those pastures that 12 yearlings have been prepared for January's Inglis Classic sale at Newmarket. Lot 19 is a gret colt by Aussie Rules from Divine Rose (by Nijinsky's Way). His dam won twice and her first four foals are all winners, including the city placed Sanireka (four wins) and the seven times provincial winner Doc Searle. Carrying three crosses of Northern Dancer, this yearling hails from the same family as the AJC Oaks-Gr.1 heroine Gossiper. Lot 40 is a bay colt by Fastnet Rock from Enrika's Gift (by Orpen). Bred on a 3mx4m cross of Danzig, he is by one of Danehill's best sons who has sired star filly Irish Lights in his debut crop. The dam is an imported stakes placegetter from the family of the European stakes winners Millyant, Prince Sabo, Bold Jessie, Abou Zouz and Jentzen. Lot 90 is a bay filly by Antonius Pius from Hammock (by Dolphin Street). She is the second foal of a lightly raced half-sister to the Listed winner Napping, dam of the recent metropolitan winner Unapred. Boasts duplications of Northern Dancer and Never Bend. Lot 138 is a chestnut filly by Strada from Lindawah (by Kenvain). She is a half- sister to three winners, including the metropolitan galloper Lara's Way, out of a daughter of the stakes placed Blame, a winner of 12 races. Line-bred to the fine mare Pasquinade, she hails from the family of the dual Gr.1-winning miler Adam and the stakes winners Young Bing, Hi-Bing, Kentish and Corporate Queen. Lot 153 is a bay colt by Dubai Destination from Mahlin (by Mister C). Carrying three crosses of Northern Dancer, he is a half-brother to the Gr.3-winning sprinter Flaming and the recent city winner Iconic Flame. It is the family of the stakes winners Prunella, Definate, Big Convoy and Fiery Boy. Lot 222 is a bay filly by Dehere from Pearl Ardane (by Danehill) and is another youngster boasting a triple cross of Northern Dancer. She is the second foal of a city- winning half-sister to the smart Hong Kong galloper California Bishop and hails from a strong northern hemisphere family, that of the big race winners Triptych, Sabona, Landseer, Tawqeet and Tamarisk. Further back this is also the family of the excellent local stallion Brave Warrior. Lot 295 is a bay filly by Holy Roman Emperor from Snowbisc (by Kenvain). Her dam is a city-winning sister to the Listed winner Work And Turn and the stakes placed Work And Play from the family of the Gr.1 winners Bullwinkle, Testafiable and Khaptingly. Up and comer Battlefield is another member of this family. Lot 359 is a bay colt by Starcraft from Unusual Choice (by Redoute's Choice). He is the first foal of a daughter of the stakes placed Tempest Command, metropolitan- winning dam of the multiple city winner Command The Wind.

Lot 362 is a bay filly by Snippetson from Vast (by Waajib): dam is a city-winning half-sister to the Magic Millions 3Y0 Trophy winner Biaggio.

His grandsires Danehill and Catrail are closely related (same family as Northern Dancer of whom she carries four crosses) - providing for lovely crosses of Natalma and Almahmoud.
