Sire had four runners in Breeders’ Cup/Two Royal Ascot Winners
Precocious filly expected to be early juvenile starter
Kodiac sired two major stakes winners at Royal Ascot this summer
Filly bred on same cross as European Champion 2-Year-Old
Terry Finley has gotten to know Irish horsemen Ross and Peter Doyle at the sales through the years. This fall he encouraged the father-and-son bloodstock team to send word if they came across anything “exciting” at the yearling sales in England.
Exciting … as in Royal Ascot, perhaps the grandest venue in all of horse racing? Or the Caulfield Cup, one of the biggest races in Australia? Or the upcoming Breeders’ Cup Championships at Keeneland here in America? Yes, indeed, we’re looking for that kind of excitement.
What the Doyles found at the Goffs Orby sale was a filly by Kodiac that fit the bill.
An Irish stallion, Kodiac has been a prolific source of fast, precocious horses, the kind that have been playing on those elite stages around the world:
“She is a lovely, elegant filly and she also has that stamp you see in the Kodiacs, she has a powerful shoulder and hind end,” said Ross Doyle about our new filly.
The Doyles have quite a history with Kodiac fillies. A few years ago, they were entrusted to buy Kodiac’s daughter Fairyland for the powerhouse combination of Coolmore and trainer Aidan O’Brien, and she went on to become a Group 1 winner at 2 in England and at 3 in Ireland.
The Doyles also bought the sensational Kodiac filly Tiggy Wiggy, who won 6 of 8 starts in 2014, capped off by a victory in England’s Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes that sealed her the Cartier Award as Europe’s champion 2-year-old filly.
This is where things get pretty interesting: Tiggy Wiggy came from the exact same cross as our new filly—Kodiac and a Kheleyf mare.
Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2022.
