Bluebloods : Inglis Sydney Classic 2011 Preview
FILLIES dominate the Inglis Classic Sale draft of 13 from Middlebrook Valley Lodge and a daughter of Danehill Dancer was singled out for special mention by the stud's David Metcalfe. "She's a late developer but a lovely filly and she'll come up well for the sale," he said. She is out of the Canny Lad mare Canny High (Lot 414), a half-sister to Canberra National Sprint-LR winner New Edge and two other stakes winners, and from the family of Gr.1 winner Bullwinkle. Former star European galloper and Horse of the Year Dylan Thomas, who won six Gr.1 events, is represented by a filly out of a Pleasant Colony mare who won at two in Canada and has produced three winners, while high hopes are also held for a daughter of Elusive Quality. "She's out of Irish-bred Wild Orchid and her half-sister made $230,000 at the Sydney Easter Sale," Metcalfe said. The dam is by Giant's Causeway and her only foal to race won at two, and she is from a strong European black type family. Also featuring among the fillies are daughters of Not A Single Doubt, Dubleo, Snowland and the multiple Gr.1 winners Street Sense and Holy Roman Emperor. "We've also got a nice filly by Librettist out of the Zabeel mare Manang, who we bought when she was carrying this filly," Metcalfe said. "She'd had nothing to race at the time but she's had a winner and a placegetter now." Manang won five times and was runner-up in the VRC Oaks-Gr.1 and is from the famous Mumtaz Mahal family. Among the colts is a son of Danzero out of a winning Red Ransom mare who is a half- sister to the Listed Canonbury Stakes winner Danehill Smile. The third dam won at Gr.2 level in the United States and has produced seven winners. Middlebrook will also offer a highly regarded colt by Redoute's Choice's stakeswinning son Not A Single Doubt. He is from the Desert Sun mare Sunsation. She is a half-sister to a pair of stakes performers from the family of the Black Opal Stakes-Gr.2 winner Zadok.
