Bluebloods : Inglis Sydney Classic 2011 Preview
BYERLEY and Riversdale studs have some choice lots selling under the Southern Cross Breeders' banner at the Inglis Classic (January 23-25), with a daughter of Choisir singled out as the star lot of the Byerley draft. "She's an outstanding filly with a fantastic pedigree and one of best families in the stud book that connects with the Danehill line," Martin Hawcroft said. The youngster is from the stakes placed Hennessy mare Leica Light, who won eight times from 1150m-1400m and is a half-sister to Gr.2 winner Delbrae (11 wins). Martin also expects daughters of first season sires Wonderful World (ex Tableau) and Court Command (ex Pretext) to attract widespread attention. "The Wonderful World is a really nice type and her second dam, is by Danehill," Hawcroft said. She shares the Gr.1 family of Leica Smile, Redding and Nothin' Leica Dane with the Choisir filly. "The Court Command is a nice, rangy type with plenty of athleticism and is typical of her sire. She is a half-sister to the HK Mile-Gr.1 winner Self Flit and the winning stakes performer Quick Speed." Also in the draft is a Danzero filly bred on the Danehill-More Than Ready cross, a son of Dubawi who is a half-brother to the multiple winner Master Strategy and a Beautiful Crown youngster described as typical of the sire with plenty of scope. Riversdale's Nick Hodges tipped sons of Shaft and Stratum as potential headliners in the stud's draft. "The Shaft colt out of Altezza is a nice, strong horse with plenty of bone and an early looking type," he said. The youngster is a half-brother to remarkable iron horse Mustard, a dual Gr.3 winner, who has won 17 races and almost $800,000 and still racing at 13. "The Stratum out of Miss Dubai is a scopey type with a lot of substance to him and a great action as well." He hails from the family of Golden Slipper winner and successful sire Marauding and is inbred 3mx3f to supersire Danehill, a cross that's already met with success. Of the fillies on offer, Nick singled out a half-sister to two winners by Henny Hughes from Rainbow Street for particular mention. "She's a really nice filly and she's a compact, early looking type and very much in the mould of her sire, with good length." He also has high hopes for the daughter of Golden Slipper winner and proven sire Danzero out of the winning Centaine mare Centaure. "She's a near black and a lovely, big filly with a relaxed walk and just an outstanding type."
