Lot 492 is the second foal from a pedigree on the move! By the Champion First and Second Season Sire of his year Zoustar, this filly is out of the stakes placed Lucky Can Be, a half-sister to the Australian-bred, successful South African Sire Gimmethegreenlight, who is in turn the sire of this season’s Group 1 Cantala Stakes winner Yulong Prince.
Lucky Can Be is also a half-sister to Group 1 Coolmore Classic winner Ofcourseican, the dam of this season’s Group 3 winner Persan, from the family of stakes winners Classic Benbara, Prince Benbara, Gregers and Girl Guide.
With Nadeem being a Group 1-winning son of Redoute’s Choice, this filly is bred on the similar Zoustar x Redoute’s Choice that has produced three winners from four runners highlighted by dual Group 2 winner Haut Brion Her, who has finished fifth in $15m The Everest and a narrow second in the $1m Yes Yes Yes Stakes, at her most recent two race starts.
Yearling Manager’s comments:
The filly is strong, compact and a fast looking filly with a great work ethic. She can be spirited at times but when set a task she’s only too willing to please. Presenting as a precocious 2yo type, with sound limbs, she possesses good bone and a great hind quarter.
