1 year old Bay Filly
Sire: Shooting to Win Dam: Calpe
Trainer's Name: Kris Lees
This filly was reared at one of the very best studs in Australia. Edinglassie Stud has built a reputation for producing superior racehorses and I always take particular attention to the yearlings the farm has to offer.
I have had good success purchasing from Edinglassie Stud with our very good fillies Savoureux, Eramor and Shine On Anna coming from the farm. I would like to have purchased more but often their yearlings are out of my reach.
Some of the horses reared on the farm include Shooting To Win, Deep Field, Nechita, Bently Biscuit, God’s Own, Nadeem, Miss Margaret and Sharscay. This is quite a list for such a small farm; all outstanding Group 1 winners.
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 super star 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 very 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.
Finally, he has started to get horses to the track with his daughter Intrepidacious being outstanding, winning on debut. I have very strong mail about a few of Shooting To Win’s progeny from some very good sources.
On 8 January, Godolphin stepped out an unraced 2yo at the Warwick Farm Barrier Trials and she looked very impressive. Her name is Tailleur. She bolted in.
It should be noted Shooting To Win didn’t have his first start until the end of May in his two year old year. He went on to win the Caulfield Guineas four months later.
Calpe is by the very successful broodmare sire Rock Of Gibraltar and has had two to race with Costa Bianca winning twice.
I love buying yearlings out of mares that missed the previous season. The chances of getting a stakes horse when this occurs are greatly enhanced.
Calpe comes from an outstanding female line with her dam Unison winning at Listed level and was placed in the Group 1 AJC Galaxy. Calpe is a ½ sister to Kidman which has thrown two Listed winners.
The 3rd dam is the outstanding 2yo Zedagal which won at Group 3 level and is a sister to Zeditave. Speed, speed and more speed here.
Other outstanding horses in the family include Melito, Allanon, Pariah, Furnaces, Verocative, Jet Spur, Zestful, Military Rose, Leonardo Da Hinchi and the list goes on.
