Valuable Filly Set for Debut

Wednesday, 13th September 2017

The aristocratically named Lady Cartier will attempt to live up to her blue blooded pedigree when she steps out on debut in the Annie Ammitzboll Plate (1000m) at Mornington in Victoria today. Trained by Brent Stanley, the 3YO filly is by Fastnet Rock out of the unraced mare Ten Carat Rock (Rock Of Gibraltar), a daughter of outstanding producer Shantha's Choice. This makes Ten Carat Rock not only a direct descendant of celebrated blue hen Best In Show, but also a three-quarter sister to Arrowfield's multiple champion Australian sire Redoute's Choice. This is arguably the most sought after bloodline in the world, with other esteemed members including boom filly Shoals, Gr1-winning sire Manhattan Rain, Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes winning sire Hurricane Sky, Umatilla, Xaar, Al Maher, Sex Appeal (dam of stallion heavyweights Try My Best & El Gran Senor), Kentucky Oaks winner Blush With Pride, and her daughter Better Than Honour, who fetched a world-record price of US$14 million for a broodmare in 2008 and is the dam of US classic winners Rags To Riches & Jazil. Raced by a syndicate that includes Tru Blu Bloodstock, Hollymount Stud and Henry Field Bloodstock, Lady Cartier was purchased for $1 million at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Field's Newgate Farm.
