Lot 410 Fastnet Rock – Memories of You (Galileo) (draft: Curraghmore)
By Champion Sire Fastnet Rock, which Te Akau has experienced so much success, including nine time Group 1 winner Avantage – the most for her sire – and Group 1 winners Age of Fire, Heroic Valour, and Rock ‘n’ Pop.
She is a sister to Australian Oaks (Gr. 1, 2400m) winner Unforgotten, who raced against the best during era of Winx (Street Cry). She was also a dual Group 2 winner, included multiple Group 1 placed and subsequently sold as a broodmare for $2.75 million.
Dam Memories of You is by Galileo, who took the mantle from his sire, Sadler’s Wells, as sire of more stakes winners and Group 1 winners than any sire in history.
“She is one of the fillies of the sale and one of the best I’ve seen at Karaka for the past five years,” said David Ellis. “She’s by the all conquering stallion Fastnet Rock that we’ve enjoyed so much success with.
“She’s out of a Galileo mare, that are so highly sought after, and just a standout on type.
“We loved her and were determined to buy her for the Fillies Partnership. She is a ripper and all class.”
The filly sports very strong influence of bloodline crosses with immortal sire Northern Dancer.
This filly is part of our Te Akau 2022 Fabulous Filly Partnership (four fillies) – if you are keen to be involved email email@example.com
