At Doomben in Brisbane, Arrowfield Stud's multiple stakes-winning stallion Not A Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice-Single's Bar, by Rory's Jester) added a black-type success when 3YO Australian-bred filly Pretty Fast (Not A Single Doubt-Miss Sharapova, by Ustinov) lived up to her name with a brilliant display of sustained speed to lead throughout in the first leg of the Summer Crown series for 3YOs, the $100,000 Listed Bobby Clarke Mode Plate (1200m) for 3YO fillies, defeating Winter Bride & Dream Kisses. Purchased by Tim Stakemire on behalf of owner Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum for $650,000 at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Arrowfield Stud, Pretty Fast improved her record to 4 wins and 1 placing from 7 starts for $191,335 in earnings. Pretty Fast is out of the talented mare Miss Sharapova (3rd in the Gr3 Lowland Stakes & 4th in the Gr1 New Zealand Oaks) and is a direct descendent of the good producer Rory's Rocket, dam of Gr1 Golden Slipper winner and successful sire Rory's Jester. "She's a valuable broodmare now she's won Black-Type and she's a Magic Millions filly," co-trainer Paul Snowden said. "We think 1200 metres is probably her best distance and there's a similar race for her in two weeks." He added: "The Magic Millions Guineas is over 1400 metres so we'll just wait and see." Pretty Fast is the 49th stakes winner for her prolific sire Not A Single Doubt.
