This one goes to John Moloney at Caulfield
The filly vetted out without any issues and has clear x-rays. Dr Tim Roberts, one of Australia’s leading vets does most of my sales inspections and is also a very good judge of a yearling. He has provided a detailed report which is included in the Product Disclosure Statement.
She is a nice sized filly and very attractive. She has a nice length of rein and stands over good ground. She has a great shoulder and is strong through the neck and has a nice girth. She is nice and strong behind which is important.
I believe this filly will develop into a really lovely three and four years old.
The filly has a superb pedigree and is related to some very good horses. This is a family that seems to throw up outstanding gallopers in each generation.
By Shooting to Win
Shooting to Win has all the ingredients to make a successful sire. Firstly, he comes from an outstanding family and is out of one of the very best mares at stud in Australia. His sire, Northern Meteor looked like being a superstar but died prematurely which was a massive loss to the Australian breeding industry.
Secondly, he is an outstanding looking horse. He has terrific conformation and is as good a type as you are likely to see.
Thirdly, he was a really good racehorse with his time in winning the Caulfield Guineas being quicker than Redoute’s Choice and Lonhro. He is one of only three horses to win the Stan Fox Stakes / Caulfield Guineas double, the other two being Kenwood Melody and Lonhro.
Fourthly, he has quite a number of very nice yearlings and they look like racehorses.
Out of Miss Fidler
Miss Fidler has an outstanding pedigree and comes from a family that continually produces high class gallopers. She, herself, is a ½ sister to the Group 1 winner Hurtle Myrtle, the winner of the VRC Myer Classic.
Miss Fidler is out of a Royal Academy mare which I love. Two horses that come to mind that I syndicated out of Royal academy mares are Husson Eagle and Raido. He is the brood mare sire of a remarkable 189 stakes winners including the high class Australian bred Group 1 winners Fastnet Rock and Heart of Dreams.
Miss Fidler is only a young mare and has a 2yo brother by Medaglia d’Oro and is believed to be in foal to Choisir.
