having his first yearlings sell on the Gold Coast at last year's Magic Millions Sale,
Sunday Silence is again being represented at this weeks sale with two superbly bred
youngsters to go under the hammer.
Sunday Silence has established himself as a champion in the
breeding barn after a brilliant short career as a racehorse.
On the track he won nine races and nearly $5 million. He was
crowned Horse of the Year and the Champion Three-Year-Old in America. His best wins came
in a Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Breeders' Cup Classic.
Now it's Sunday Silence's runners that are establishing
themselves as stars on the track. With Group One winners like Dance Partner, Fuji Kiseki,
Special Week, Tayasu Tsuyoshi, Marvelous Sunday, Bubble Gum Fellow and Stay Gold, Sunday
Silence has been the champion Japanese Sire for the past seven years.
A son of Halo, Sunday Silence will be represented by two
fillies on the Gold Coast. A chestnut filly from the stakes placed Singles Bar will sell
in the middle stages of the second session on Friday afternoon, while the other, a bay
filly, will go under the hammer early in the fourth session on Sunday.
Lot 297 chestnut filly from Singles Bar
The chestnut filly is a half sister to two stakes performers.
Singles Bar, herself a stakes placegetter at two in Adelaide and a Melbourne winner during
the same season, is the dam of Hanky Panky and Natural Is My Name. Singles Bar is a half
sister to the former brilliant galloper turned sire Snippets as well as Quick Score,
Asawir (dam of Ghareeb, Alharir and Nasmah) and True Blonde. Second dam Easy Date, a
two-year-old winner by Grand Chaudiere, is the dam of some ten winners on the track.
Foaled on September 6, the chestnut filly is being offered by Arrowfield Stud as agent.
Lot 504 bay filly from Blue Feather
This filly is from an unraced half sister to former brilliant
European galloper Bigstone. On the track Bigstone (Last Tycoon) won the Queen Elizabeth II
Stakes at Ascot, the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, the Prix d'Ispahan at Longchamp and the
Prix de la Foret at the same track, all of those wins at Group One level. Second dam,
multiply Group placed Posse mare Batave, is also the dam of stakes winners Bague Bleue and
Blue Cloud and the Group placed Bakari. She in turn is a daughter of the Group winning
Major Portion mare Bon Appetit. Foaled on August 17 this filly is being offered by
Arrowfield Stud as agent.
