Pedigree Boosters - Inglis Easter

3 min read

In the build up to the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale at the Riverside Complex, we will pick out three yearlings each day who have had substantial pedigree updates in the past couple of months.

Today, we look at a filly with a connection to the recent Golden Slipper winner, a trio of runners boosted by the performances of an Australian-bred colt in South Africa, as well as a couple of relatives of the triple Group 1 winning sprinting filly Sunlight.

Lot 52 - Written Tycoon x Impeach (Viscount) - Offered by Turangga Farm

This filly already had a strong pedigree page, being a half-sister to two winners and being out of Impeach (Viscount), who had two Group 1 winning siblings, but she can now count a G1 Golden Slipper S. winner on her pedigree page.

Kiamichi (Sidestep), who also recently won the G3 Magic Night S. is out of Ouachita (Canny Lad), a half-sister to Impeach as well as G1 winner Denman, and a full sister to G1 winner Preserve and Rio Osa. Kiamichi's half-brother Cossetot (Epaulette) also claimed stakes success recently in the Listed Tasmanian Derby, while he has been placed in three stakes-races since and contests Saturday's G1 ATC Derby.

Lot 390 - Sebring x Bubble Below (Hussonet {USA}) - Offered by Evergreen Stud Farm

The Group 1 successes of Australian-bred Soqrat (Epaulette) in South Africa have provided a boost for the pedigree pages of at least three of the yearlings in the Easter catalogue. The star colt, prepared by Mike De Kock, claimed his third Group 1 victory last weekend in the Horse Chestnut at Turffontein.

Lot 390 already had plenty of Group 1 quality in her pedigree being a full sister to Hong Kong G1 Chairman's Sprint winner Lucky Bubbles. Their dam, Bubble Below (Hussonet {USA}) is a half-sister to the dam of Soqrat, Lunasong (Unbridled Song {USA}). The dam of Lot 102, the Dundeel (NZ) colt offered by Arrowfield, the stakes-winning Lunaspur (Flying Spur), is another half-sister to Soqrat's dam.

Lot 408, the filly by Not a Single Doubt out of Group 2 winner Colorado Claire (Hussonet {USA}} is another member of Soqrat's extended family.

Lot 274 - Sebring x Solar Charged (Charge Forward) - Offered by Widden Stud

As a half-brother to the star filly Sunlight, this colt attracted plenty of attention at the Magic Millions in January, where he was a last-minute withdrawal and he is arguably an even more valuable commodity now after his half-sister added the G1 Newmarket Hcp and G1 William Reid S. to her amazing resume in the past month. She could even have the G1 TJ Smith as well by the time this colt goes through the ring next Wednesday.

Lot 278, the filly by Written Tycoon offered by Glastonbury Farms, also boasts a connection to Sunlight with her dam Soul Mama a full sister to Sunlight's dam Solar Charged (Charge Forward).
