PEMPIE

TRAINER: ANDREW BALDING, Kingsclere

This beautiful-moving filly stood out with the way she walked and behaved at the Goffs Orby Sales in September 2017. She had a lovely attitude with a great stride and we were thrilled to secure her for €60,000. She is by the dual French Classic winner and very successful sire LOPE DE VEGA; his multiple Group One winning progeny have included the recent Dewhurst winner, Belardo, now a stallion in his own right. This filly has the size and scope to keep improving and is out of the prolific-winning mare, Penelope Star. She gained black type herself before going on to produce two winning fillies from two runners including the Group Three victor Papagena Star. The family is stacked with winners from a very tough German family and I am very hopeful this gorgeous horse will continue the trend. Andrew Balding is delighted with the way she has been taking her early training and thinks she was a shrewd buy.
