Buyers looking for a filly with enormous residential value at the 2012 Karaka Premier Sale are bound to be attracted to Cambridge Stud’s Stravinsky filly from Jesmonds Gift.




This filly is from the immediate family of Sepoy, Australia’s Champion 2YO of 2011, winning both the ATC Golden Slipper Stakes-Gr.1 and the MRC Blue Diamond Stakes-Gr.1.  Since then Sepoy has added both the MVRC Manikato Stakes-Gr.1 and VRC Coolmore Stakes-Gr.1 as a 3YO.  Sepoy’s record reads 11 starts for 10 wins and 1 second for prize money of A$3,870,000.  His sole defeat was in the ATC Todman Stakes-Gr.2 when he was beaten by Smart Missile.


This filly’s dam is a half-sister to Canny Lad, himself a Golden Slipper winner before going on to be a successful sire.  Jesmonds Gift is also a half-sister to Canny Lass, a multiple Group One winner and dam of two black type winners.
