Bay filly by DARK ANGEL ex Button Down (Oasis Dream)
(Trainer: Ed Walker, Lambourn)
This good-looking filly is by the fantastic stallion, DARK ANGEL who had a phenomenal season in 2021 which included three Royal Ascot winners. As a result, his progeny were extremely hard to buy, so we were thrilled to secure this filly at Tattersalls Book 2. Her dam Button Down is a Group Three winner and the daughter of the great Oasis Dream, who is an extremely successful broodmare sire. This year’s Coventry Stakes winner Berkshire Shadow was by DARK ANGEL out of an Oasis Dream mare.
The filly’s pedigree is full of high-class horses including the Oaks winner Reams of Verse. We were really attracted by her easy-moving stride and lovely outlook. She will go to Ed Walker, whom we are delighted to introduce as a new Thurloe trainer. This year Ed has had great success with the ultra-speedy July Cup hero Starman, who has just gone off to Stud.
