Turn Me Loose … Canterbury Called …

Turn Me Loose … Canterbury Called …

 

 

Turn Karyn loose in Christchurch to support Windsor Park’s “Rugby, Racing & Beer” sports’ luncheon and she comes home with a stunning Turn Me Loose yearling filly!

 

“David and I are so impressed with this innovation by Rodney Schick and the Windsor Park team – I enjoyed the inaugural event so much last year that I was back this year to support their initiative,” Karyn said.

“There were a number of yearlings on offer and we singled out the Turn Me Loose filly as the stand out for us and I was thrilled to secure her and we will be selling the shares now, although 40% was snapped up in her on the spot.

Buying a share in this filly importantly
means you are helping a young woman’s life …

 

One of the best parts of buying this filly is that 2.5% of the proceeds of her purchase price will go to the Ellie Stokes Trust.  Ellie is a young woman whose life has dramatically changed.  In 2018 she was working with her passion, horses – specifically thoroughbred racehorses in a racing stable with the dream of one day being a jockey and eventually a trainer in her own right.

On Thursday 3 January 2019, Ellie, aged 16, fell riding track work breaking her back in five places.  She also severed her spinal cord which has left her paralysed from the chest down.  She spent three weeks in intensive care and five months in Burwood Hospital and is continuing to receive treatment.

A home specifically adapted to meet her wheelchair needs has been built but there is a shortfall of funds in construction and associate c costs that have evolved during the project. Hence the Ellie Stokes Trust has been formed to raise money to cover this cost and hep relieve the burden on Ellie and her family.

So … we are nicknaming this filly Ellie … and being involved in our lovely lass means you are helping a very special young woman (main picture)!

Let’s tell you about this new filly:

 

She’s by exciting sire Turn Me Loose – who will stand at $20,000 this year.

Turn Me Loose is off to an exciting start to stud with his oldest only 3YOs – with an outstanding 9.3% stakes’ winners to runners ration as at 14 March 2022.

He is already the sire of five individual stakes’ winners including quality filly Licketysplit winner of the Group 1 Sistema Stakes; exciting Melbourne 3YO colt Prix De Turn, winner of the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes; high class 3YO filly Ancient Girl, winner of the Listed Morphetteville Guineas, and explosive 2YO colt Alabama Gold winner of the Group 3 Matamata Slipper by 4 lengths.

Turn Me Loose currently leads the table for NZ based second season sires by both individual stakes’ winners and stakes’ horses and notably he has sired three individual two-year-old stakes’ winners to date.

Our filly is the first foal of a young Zabeel mare, herself a three-quarter sister of champion filly Hill of Grace.  She won five races including the Group 1 Ansett Australia Stakes in Sydney and Group 2 Moonee Valley oaks and was runner up in the group 1 NZ Derby.  She was named Champion Older Female Stayer in New Zealand in 2002/02.
