From the proven breeding cross that delivers Stakes winner after Stakes winner. . .
This is a cracker of a filly with a potent genetic make-up that has produced a remarkable number of Stakes winners.
Since March 2014, the SEBRING / ENCOSTA DE LAGO breeding cross has delivered FOUR Group-race winners, including the devastatingly quick filly at two, BELIEVE YOURSELF, who after taking the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes followed up with a fourth place finish in the Golden Slipper.
Our filly will be trained by Hall of Fame trainer David Hayes at Lindsay Park, along with co-trainers Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes, and the three other Group-race winners to emerge from the cross have all been trained by the trio at Lindsay Park, namely CATCH A FIRE, SEABURGE and CLIFTON RED.
SEABURGE is a Group 2 winner at two, and finished runner-up in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, beating recent Group 1 Australian Guineas winner HEY DOC.
David was greatly impressed by this filly and the stats show there is no better trainer to guide her towards Stakes glory!
The family of dam BEAUTIFUL SOUL contains some electric two-year-old winners, including the sensational AMELIA’S DREAM who destroyed the field in the Silver Slipper to win by over six lengths, before injury cruelly cut short her career.
The filly herself is very well conformed and particularly well balanced, with the result being a filly that moves with plenty of class and swagger.
She is certainly forward enough to make for an early-running two-year-old, with the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper among her targets. With six-time Blue Diamond winning trainer David Hayes producing three of the first four home in this year’s edition, she is in perfect hands.
From the red-hot sire making a name for himself in Golden Slipper winner SEBRING, the sire of five-time Group 1 winner DISSIDENT and four-time Group 1 winner CRITERION within his very first crop, this filly is yet another that catches the eye.
A Champion Racehorse & Golden Slipper winner, gathering a serious reputation as a stallion. . .
SEBRING flew onto the scene as a two-year-old, winning the Listed Canonbury Stakes following his win on debut, before backing up that success in the Listed Breeders’ Plate.
Those wins set him up for a tilt at the world’s richest race for two-year-olds, the Group 1 Golden Slipper, where the son of MORE THAN READY burst through on the inside having been the last to jump from the gates, in what was a breathtaking performance.
His credentials as a world-class two-year-old were confirmed as he then won the second leg of the 2YO Triple Crown, the Group 1 Sires’ Produce. Yet just 0.1 lengths came between him and Triple Crown immortality, as he was agonizingly denied in the Champagne Stakes on what was his final start.
He proved himself as a versatile horse, winning the Golden Slipper from off the pace to demonstrate his blistering turn of foot, but was more often seen tracking through the leader before sprinting clear of his rivals.
The top-class juvenile was always destined for stud duties, where he has proven to be equally as explosive, siring an endless list of high-class gallopers including the likes of five-time Group 1 winner and Horse of the Year DISSIDENT and four-time Group 1 winner CRITERION within his first crop.
Indeed, within his first four crops SEBRING has 41 Stakes wins to his name for almost $40 million in prizemoney – an incredible return at such an early stage.
A sire of a long list of two-year-old Stakes winners, including Sweet Embrace Stakes winner BELIEVE YOURSELF and VRC Sires’ Produce winner SEABURGE, both of who are bred on the exact same cross with ENCOSTA DE LAGO as our filly, the flashy sire is becoming renowned for excellent source of quick two-year-old talent.
His stats show he is only getting better, and his progeny are in high demand, with a colt of his being sold for a whopping $1.4 million at the recent Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney.
A family that delivers on this cross. . .
We’ll never know the true extent of the potential shown by AMELIA’S DREAM as injury cut her career abruptly short, however the brilliance she showed in blitzing the Group 2 Silver Slipper field by six and a quarter lengths, following her nine-and-a-quarter-length win on debut, suggests she was destined for greatness.
AMELIA’S DREAM is a daughter of the Stakes winner SHALT NOT, the third dam to our filly, and a full sister to our filly’s grand dam, RAVISHING CHOICE, a winner at two.
Indeed, the winning trend of the damline continues, with BEAUTIFUL SOUL a four-time winner and regular starter at Stakes level, finishing sixth in the valuable Group 2 Adelaide Cup, while MORE RADIANT, a half-sister to the dam, is a metropolitan winner in Melbourne and a regular sight at Stakes level, being placed twice at Listed level, and finishing third in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes and fourth in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes.
MORE RADIANT is by MORE THAN READY, giving proof that the cross with the sireline of SEBRING is capable of producing Stakes level racehorses when matched with this family.
Aside from the talents of AMELIA’S DREAM and SHALT NOT, further notable Stakes winners appear on the pedigree page, including GRAND ZULU, winner of the BMW Stakes and runner-up in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas.
BEAUTIFUL SOUL is by champion broodmare sire ENCOSTA DE LAGO, who is damsire to outstanding Group 1 winners, including JAPONISME, SOFIA ROSA, THE QUARTERBACK, PEEPING and DIVINE PROHET.
This leaves our filly possessing all the right bloodlines for not only success on the racetrack, but to carry significant residual value after her racing career.
This versatile family that consistently produces racehorses of the highest quality is certainly one to get on your side!
