Bay filly by NEW BAY ex Areeda (Refuse To Bend)
(Trainer: Richard Hannon, Herridge, nr Marlborough)
We bought this gorgeous filly at Tattersalls Book 2. She is by NEW BAY, who is the new sire sensation. The son of the great Dubawi, NEW BAY won four Group races in France including the French Derby. His progeny include the high-class filly Saffron Beach, who won the Group One Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket this autumn. The dam of this filly Areeda has already produced the multiple stakes winning filly Great Page and her two-year-old Kidwah won impressively first time out at Doncaster recently.
This filly is also related to another black-type horse in Belvoir Bay, who made headlines when escaping the Californian fires. She went missing for three days but came back to win the Breeders Cup Turf Sprint two months later. We hope our filly has inherited the same remarkable temperament. She has a good walk and nice outlook. She will go to Richard Hannon with whom we have had great success including our four time winner this season, Tahitian Prince. The Hannons have trained many horses in this family including Belvoir Bay and Great Page before they went to the States.
