Trapeze Artist - Earth Sky (NZ)

I sat for two days waiting for this filly to come into the ring.
Lot 486, a Trapeze Artist filly out of Earth Sky (NZ) was on top of my list and I was determined to get her. I paid $200,000 for her which I'm certain will prove to be a great buy in the long run. I bought her from Widden Stud, one of our very best.
Trapeze Artist was an outstanding racehorse winning four times at Group 1 level. Two of these wins, The All Aged Stakes and Canterbury Stakes were in course record time. He was a 2yo winner and placed 2nd in The Everest. He was the fastest horse of his generation. He comes from as good a female line as you are likely to find with his dam a ½ sister to The Group 1 winner Crawl.
I love the 2nd dam is by Bletchingly. Other good horses on the page include Old Man, Marching, Gait, Boardwalk Angel, Coogee Walk and Country Walk. The fact he found a home at stud at Widden Stud is a great advertisement to his potential. Widden is one of our very best studs with over 150 years of breeding superior horses.
I love buying yearlings out of first season sires. Some examples are Rubisaki by Rubick, Fituese by Deep Field, Zizzis by Sizzling, Xtremetime by Extreme Choice, Miss Divine Em by Super One, Casa De Lago by Delago Deluxe, Under Command by Commands and Mislaid by Encosta De Lago.
This filly's dam Earth Sky is by Pins by Snippets giving the pedigree a double cross to Snippets. She is a ½ sister to to the outstanding race mare and Group 1 winner Allez Wonder and Group 3 winner Pretty Pins. Another sister threw the Group 1 winner and sire Tivaci. This is a serious page.
I have had good success with this family syndicating the first six foals out of the stakes winning mare Amphritite who is out of a ½ sister to the 2nd dam, the Perth Cup winner Luna Tudor. These six horses all won. Sea Coral won seven races, Hyginus won two, Ohmygod won three, Tigerish won five, Poussin won two and Invincible Me won five races.
These were handy horses with Hyginus being one of the most talented horses I have syndicated. Sadly, foot problems held him back from going to the level he should have.
This filly will head to Patrick Payne. She is a ripper and I expect her to run early. Could she win the Blue Diamond? I don't know but she will be given every chance.
