Another Sizzling filly in our team
Dan Morton to train in Perth
I really liked what I saw in a number of the progeny of Sizzling at last year’s sales. To me, it is a no brainer that he will be a success at stud. He was a terrific racehorse and precocious two year old from the most dominant sire line in Australia for the past 20 years out of a ‘black type’ mare by one of the greatest sprinters of the modern generation in General Nediym.
Sizzling’s pedigree page is very strong with a host of very good horses down the page. In fact, it couldn’t be any stronger with both the 2nd and 3rd dams being superior producers.
I love the General Nediym (1st dam), Alzao stakes winner (2nd Dam) and Without Fear stakes producer (3rd dam) down the page. Eastate Label, the 3rd dam was a very high class producer also throwing the outstanding two year old filly Loving Cup.
I must say I had a bit to do with both sides of this pedigree with Sizzling’s sire Snitzel being out of Snippet’s Lass. Both General Nediym and Snippet’s Lass were trained by Bill Mitchell when I was his Racing Manager. They were both high class racehorses with Snippet’s Lass being one of the toughest mares I have had anything to do with.
Sizzling has started out his stud career in great fashion and is currently 4th on the Australian First Season List.
Out of Belle D'Amour
Belle D’Amour is by the good sprinter Jet Spur. He has had a good start as a broodmare sire with 15 of his 26 runners winning. This is more than acceptable.
Belle D’Amour was a very good race filly and won the BRC Lancaster Stakes at two years old. This is only her 2nd foal with the first being a winner of one of his only two starts. There are also plenty of winners down the page including several ‘black type’ performers. Belle D’Amour’s dam is by Military Plume which adds a lot to the page.
