Impressive Update for Wandjina Colt

Sunday, March 5, 2017


A half-sister to this season’s Group II winning three year-old Russian Revolution, well-bred Sebring mare Turbo Miss boosted her worth and that of her weanling half-brother immeasurably with a brave win in the Group III VRC Frances Tressady Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.

The Darren Weir trained mare was fit and ready to fire at her third run back from a spell and scored a long neck win over Group I winner Rising Romance in the 1400 metre mares contest.

It was her first attempt at Black type and the win takes her overall record to five wins from 17 starts with prizemoney topping $180,000.

Retained to race by her breeders John Stuart Investments, Turbo Miss is the second stakes-winner and one of four winners from Ballet D’Amour (USA), an imported daughter of Stravinsky.

She traces back to legendary matriarch Fanfreluche, so Turbo Miss will be a most appealing broodmare prospect when her racing days are done.

Ballet D’Amour was on-sold in 2015 with James Harron Bloodstock purchasing her for $100,000 at the Inglis Broodmare Sale. She is now in the ownership of Mrs Belinda Bateman and is based at Newgate Farm, who sold her current yearling, a filly by Smart Missile, for $300,000 at Magic Millions to China Horse Club.

Ballet D’Amour produced a colt by Wandjina last spring and then missed to Exceed and Excel.

The colt by Wandjina has been entered by Newgate Farm for the upcoming Inglis Weanling Sale.
