28/02/02 Bolter Gives With Class Second Winner
Young Victorian based stallion With Class received another early boost to his breeding career when Deputy Head scored a boilover by winning this afternoon's Schweppes Mixers Maiden Plate (1300m) at Geelong.

Prepared at Flemington by Mathew Ellerton, Deputy Head was having only his second start today and rewarded connections with his win at $51.

With Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle, Deputy Head, who is from the Twig Moss mare Wassail.

The smart Tasmanian juvenile Highclere kicked away With Class' winning account in December when that colt scored an easy two length win at Hobart.

From just seven runners to date all of With Class' runners have earned connections prizemoney except one. Stowaway Lass for Tony McEvoy and Yukon Star for Gerald Ryan have shown great ability in strong class races and should be in the winner's stall soon.

With Class is one of the best bred stallions in Victoria. He is an unraced son of the might Canadian Horse of the Year Deputy Minister. That stallion is now making a name for himself as a sire of sires with the likes of Silver Deputy, Salt Lake, Dehere and Mane Minister.

His dam Classy 'n Smart was perfectly named. She was crowned the Champion 3YO in Canada after a great win in the Canadian Oaks. She is a half sister to the champions Sky Classic, Regal Classic and Grey Classic and fellow G1 winners Classy Reign and Always a Classic.

Classy 'n Smart has followed in the footsteps of her dam No Class by developing into a wonderful producing mare. She is the dam of the Canadian Horse of the Year, the champion Dance Smartly and the Group One winner Smart Strike.

With a family which is renowned for producing Champions and Group One performers at will, there's little surprise the early form of With Class' progeny has been impressive.
