Don’t forget the Eliza Park Open Day on Friday 26 August from 1pm. This is what industry doyen, Brian Russell, had to say in his weekly newsletter.
Newcomers who were world class racehorses are to be among stallions on show when Lee Fleming’s Eliza Park conducts its open day – highlighted by parades of sires – on Friday 26 August.
A spectacular newcomer to be on show is Super Saver (USA), decisive winner last year of the Kentucky Derby and at two annexer of the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes by five lengths and in new stakes record time.
A first class outcross for Danehill, Super Saver is by former champion American 2YO Maria’s Mon (Raise a Native male line) and from the La Troienne family mare Supercharger, a daughter of A.P. Indy and the Mr. Prospector Group winner Get Lucky.
Super Saver is one of four shuttle sires who will be on show at Eliza Park.
The others are Astronomer Royal (USA) (Danzig – Sheepscot, by Easy Goer), the 2007 French Two Thousand Guineas winner; Bushranger (IRE) (Danetime – Danz Danz, by Efisio), a dual Group One winner in England and France at two; and established winner getter Statue of Liberty (USA) (Storm Cat – Charming Lassie, by Seattle Slew). He is the sire of Hay List and Mic Mac.
All told Eliza Park has a dozen sires available this year, two of the others being Black Caviar’s sire Bel Esprit (Royal Academy (USA) – Bespoken, by Vain) and close relation Magnus (Flying Spur – Scandinavia, by Snippets).
