Bluebloods : Inglis Sydney Classic
SINCE expanding in 2006, Toolooganvale Farm at Scone has gone from strength to strength, and Geoff and Jann Harris are pleased to present a quality Classic Sale draft for 2010. Their sale kicks off early with Lot 3 being Toolooganvale's first through the ring, a filly from the second Australian crop of the Gr.1-winning Halo line stallion Southern Image. This yearling is a half- sister to the four-times winner Matzumi and out of Damzel's Dream (Bite the Bullet), a dual-winning half- sister to the Singapore stakes winner Any Humour. The youngster boasts an interesting pedigree as her sire and dam are descendants of the influential matriarch Frizette. There is a break before Toolooganvale's next yearling, but he is bound to be worth the wait. Lot 286 is a member of the first crop of the regally bred Gr.3-winning Flying Spur stallion Primus. Based at Chatswood Stud, Primus hails from the prolific Denise's Joy family and his son here from She's a Knockout (Kingston Rule) is a half- brother to the dual winner Cajokel Lila and from the family of the SA Sires' Produce Stakes-Gr.3 winner Isanami. A highlight of his pedigree is a 7mx4m cross of the great mare Somethingroyal. Another great-grandson of the mighty Danehill is Lot 321, a member of the second crop of the Golden Slipper-Gr.1 winner Stratum. He is out of the Pauillac mare Sunshine Boulevard, a half-sister to the stakes winners Touch of Sun and Millie and daughter of the Gr.2 mare Sunshine Sally. Nicely bred from a pedigree enthusiast's perspective, he boasts duplications of Northern Dancer, his son Nijinsky II, Star Kingdom and Bletchingly and he is also line-bred to the excellent mares Natalma and Arietta. Another well-constructed pedigree belongs to Lot 366, a filly from the second crop of Snippetson who has made an encouraging start to his stud career with winners like Bit of a Dude and Remarkable Girl. She is out of the US-winning mare Virginia Bride (Roanoke), half-sister to the dual Listed winner Elk Creek and dam of the multiple city winner Frosty, by Snippetson's brother Snowland. A feature of her pedigree are the three strains of the prolific Grey Flight family - her sire line bred to that great mare via her son Misty Day and grandson Bold Lad whilst her dam brings in a strain of Bold Lad's half-brother Sunrise Flight. Lot 416 is bred on a 6mx3m cross of Biscay. She is a daughter of Not A Single Doubt, who is proving his ability to get ready made runners with the likes of My Girl Helen, Star Aligned, Regal Flame, Always Certain and Indisputable. She is a half-sister to the multiple city winner Silver Street and out of the winning Dieu d'Or mare Anna Liffey, whose dam Liffey Lace (Sagace) won at Listed level in Italy. This family produced the early shuttle stallion success story Godswalk. The last of Toolooganvale's Classic yearlings is Lot 499, a colt by emerging Danehill stallion Fastnet Rock, the Gr.1- winning sire of this season's outstanding filly Irish Lights. A good looking grey, this fellow is out of the Gr.3- winning Citidancer mare Citichy, whose consistent and classy son Heart of the Citi has won nine races including the Magic Millions 3Y0 Trophy.
