Highest price of R1,2 million was paid by Mayfair Speculators for a beautiful Var filly consigned by Balmoral Stud. (This filly was selected for resale last January by a Doyle / Kirkwood partnership.)
Ice Queen is out of Baltic Beauty, a full sister to champion racemare, Mother Russia, who won 13 of her 27 starts, including four Gr 1’s.
Super sire Var is a noted producer of high-class fillies – his best daughters including Gr1 winning champions as Val De Ra and Via Africa, as well as the top class graded winners Princess Of Light, A Womens Way, Valdivia, and the Gr1 filly Schiffer.
Var’s daughters are also showing promise at stud, and he already features as broodmare sire of smart stakes winner Mambonick (by Mambo In Seattle) and the leading Fillies Guineas hope, and Gr3 Starling Stakes winner She’s A Giver (by Philanthropist).
We saw another smart Var on the up at Kenilworth on Wednesday when Sommerlied, a Maine Chance Farms bred and owned filly, won her second start on the trot for Dennis Drier. She is rumoured to be very good and has done little to dispel that so far!
It’s an exciting weekend here in Camden – 3 Camden horses are running in the Kentucky Derby. One of them is TOM’S READY, who was prepped at Kirkwood Stables. Best of luck to all! Check out this article in The State Newspaper.
