Fastnet Filly Looks Good
28th Jul 2011
Breednet - Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 27 July 2011
Victorian based syndicators Slade Bloodstock were in the winner’s circle at Sandown on Wednesday with a very smart winner by Fastnet Rock.
Two year-old filly And Rock opened her account with a powerful win for the John McArdle stable improving on a last start second to post her first win in the fillies event over 1300 metres.
"She’s always shown us quite a bit and we’ve had an opinion of her for a while," said Rob Slade.
"She’s out of a Grand Lodge mare, so we think she’ll get a mile at least and we’ll just pick our way along now to the spring.”
And Rock had two runs earlier in the year when finishing midfield in stakes races and has obviously improved with the benefit of a good spell and looks set for a great campaign.
"She has a good future and the further she goes the better,” said winning rider Chris Symons.
A $100,000 purchase for Slade Bloodstock from the draft of Woodside Park at the 2010 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, And Rock (pictured as a yearling) is the fifth winner from Bee and Bee, a half-sister by Grand Lodge (USA) to stakes-placed Trencher from the family of Group III winner Le Dejeneur.
And Rock is one of more than 90 Australian winners this season for Fastnet Rock, who stands at Coolmore at a fee of $132,000.
