Fantastic performance yesterday (2 May) by exciting Statue of Liberty 2YO, Broadway Harmony, who took out the Listed Dequetteville Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville.
The Darren Weir trained filly, effectively, should have gone into the Dequetteville with an unblemished record, having won convincingly on debut at Moonee Valley on 19 March before finishing second to Jessie’s Girl at Sandown on 24 April.
Broadway Harmony put in an absolute blinder at Sandown, only to go down by a bee’s appendage to another very classy performer in Jessie’s Girl.
Broadway Harmony exacted revenge on Jessie’s Girl in the Dequetteville – winning by over two lengths – but the latter missed the start and it may develop into an interesting rivalry between the pair.
Bred by Mrs C Sherer, Broadway Harmony is out of No Peace, a winning three quarter sister to Flemington stakes winner No Mischief (5 wins) and the stakes placed No Mystery (7 wins).
Importantly, No Peace is out of the Danzig stallion Rokosz: anything with Danzig in it seems to work a treat with Statue of Liberty!
Congratulations to all the team at Darren and Liz Dance’s Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock who purchased Broadway Harmony for $18,000 at last year’s Inglis Autumn Yearling Sale.
and adds to an impressive tally for the syndication mob whose 19 winners last year were highlighted by Fitoussi who finished third in the SAJC Derby-G1.
Statue of Liberty is currently fourth on the Australian Third Season Sires’ chart: effectively maintaining a top five position against peers since his first crop hit the ground running in 2007/08.
Broadway Harmony (below) is stakes winner No. 8 for the Storm Cat stallion who will return to Eliza Park this spring at a fee of $17,600.
Statue of Liberty covered a full book of 156 mares last spring and will be limited to a harem of 120 in 2010.
With the likes of Mic Mac, Hay List and Solchow all waiting in the wings, it would be best to jump in quick.
