I am pleased to introduce my 2015 NZ Karaka Sale purchase - Lot 97, a Bay Filly by Stravinsky out of the Carnegie mare Oh Carlinda.
STRAVINSKY (By Nureyev) – This proven stallion of over 70 plus Stakes Winners is prolific reputation for producing top class fillies. He has sons at stud, but it is his daughters that are the most sought-after bloodline to breed from; Lanken Rupee, Rip Van Winkle and Mosheen are all from Stravinsky mares – which is why this filly has residual and also the potential to bring real dollars if she wins a Stakes race.
LOT 97 isn’t just a daughter of Stravinsky……..She has a premier pedigree, with 2 of her first 3 dams named as “Top 3 Two year olds of their generation”(ZALINDA by Zabeel & ALYNDA by Nassau) – This filly will run and run early. I’ve mentioned Stravinsky’s affinity with Sadler’s Wells blood, but his ability to “nick” with Zabeel is fascinating – 15% Stakes Winners to runners………. Furthermore, her mother is a ½ sister to FAST ‘N’ FAMOUS the son of Redoute’s Choice that retired to stud as a Grou 1 performed Sprinter that ran 2nd in the Galaxy to MAGNUS.
In my mind she has all of the traits that make a Stravinsky filly tick. Her pedigree suggests that the speed and precocity are a given. But I’ll let you into a secret; I’ve bought her with the dream of taking her back to New Zealand for the NZB KARAKA MILLIONS in January of next year…………..A race won this year by an Australian trained colt that was unplaced at his only Sydney start! ……. Catch my drift.
