With the resumption of racing in most parts of Europe, Cable Bay’s current 3yo crop came to the fore over the weekend highlighted by his G3 winner Liberty Beach.

Making her seasonal debut in the Listed Cecil Frail Fillies’ Stakes at Haydock, the JJ Quinn-trained filly took her overall record to five wins from seven starts, and has never finished further back than fourth.

Also over the weekend, Cable Bay filly Belle Anglaise became the eighth stakes performer for her sire when finishing a close up third in the Listed Hannover Pool & the Gang Cup (1400m) in Germany, having not started since October of her juvenile season.

In many of the leading stables in Australia, we look forward to Cable Bay’s first Australian crop stepping out in the Spring.

Deep Impact Does It Again

The Deep Impact sire line once highlighted its astonishing class with Sunday’s G1 Yasuda Kinen (1600m) at Tokyo going the way of the highly-talented filly Gran Alegria (Deep Impact), winning her second Group 1 victory when downing Champion mare Almond Eye by two and a half lengths.

Tosen Stardom, the only dual Australian G1-winning son of Deep Impact at stud anywhere in the world, will be represented by his first weanling crop at the sales in the coming weeks.
