Shares available in cracking Charge Forward filly - MUST WATCH VIDEO

Jul 15, 2014

We are delighted to be able to offer shares in this beautiful Charge Forward x Bambolear filly Tony purchased at the Magic Millions sales for what Tony describes as a "bargain buy". 

Tony bought the half-brother last year and have been delighted with him, especially after seeing him win a trial at Te Teko in June by 6 lengths!

The half-brother (who we call Crafty) is by Starcraft out of Bambolear.

That 6L trial win confirmed what we already know about this family – they are very fast. I strongly encourage you to watch Crafty’s trial win: 

Bambolear had setbacks which meant she never made it to the racetrack but she is by champion sire Redoute’s Choice which explains why her progeny have such a great galloping action and can fire as 2-year-olds.

This filly for sale, who we have nicknamed Bambi, is Bambolear’s third foal. The first is yet to race and the second is Crafty.

Bambi is by Charge Forward who was a Group 1 winner (The Galaxy) in Australia and as a 2-year-old, he won the Group 2 Todman Stakes and ran second in the Golden Slipper. He retired after his 3-year-old campaign with 11 starts to his name for $1.23million in prize money.

Charge Forward has produced 11 stakes winners for 18 stakes wins which include Group 1 winners Headway (Coolmore Stud Stakes) and Response (Rupert Clarke Stakes and Robert Sangster Stakes). Headway and Response were both fillies which suggests Charge Forward has had much more success with his fillies than he has colts and geldings.

Based on the breeding of Charge Forward and Bambolear, we are expecting Bambi to have good speed as a 2-year-old which was strongly evident in Charge Forward and Redoute’s Choice but also capable of getting out to a mile down the track.

She has been nominated for the Blue Diamond already.
