Nicely-Bred Real Impact Filly To Debut
Dual Gr1 winner Real Impact (Deep Impact-Tokio Reality, by Meadowlake) has a nicely bred filly on debut today at Ladbrokes Park Hillside in Victoria in Race 1, the Ladbrokes Handicap over 1000m for 2YOs. Trained by Peter Moody, Succotash (Real Impact-Cat by the Tale, by Tale of the Cat) was sold by Arrowfield Stud at the 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, a bargain given that she is a half-sister to five winners including group-placed Raphael's Cat (Redoute's Choice) and Tale of Choice (Redoute's Choice). Succotash's dam Cat by the Tale is a Gr2-winning Gr1 placed race mare from the family of group winner St Clair Ridge. Real Impact's oldest crop in Japan are 3YOs and he has already left the Gr1 winner Lauda Sion (Real Impact-Antiphona, by Songandaprayer), while his oldest crop in Australia are 2YOs.
