SNOWDROP STAKES, 8FAW, 4YO+, KEMPTON
A race that was up to snuff, but nothing much got toBorn Tobouggie, who scorched off, a bit freely really early on, and lasted out well to near the course record. It completed a good period for her sire Tobougg, who has moved as a dual-purpose sire to East Burrow Stud in Devon and had a good winner at Aintree last week. This filly could do him some more good too, if she can translate the form to turf and perhaps settle a bit better â€“ she is best striding on, which does leave her exposed to a finisher at a higher level; she was well enough held in two other attempts at Listed company, but she seems game.
She was a cheap foal and yearling, though she is the third winner from five foals out of the unracedBraissim (Dancing Brave), a half-sister to White Heart (Green Desert), a dual Gr.1 winner in the USA and a Gr.3 winner in Germany, as well as a Listed winner in Britain, both out of another unraced mare Barari (Blushing Groom). The third dam Rainbow Connection (Halo) was Champion two-year-old in Canada and dam of nine winners from as many runners, including the Champion sire Rainbows For Life (Lyphard), also Champion two-year-old in Canada, but also Champion older horse there, and Colour Chart (Mr Prospector), winner of the Gr.2 (then) Prix de lâ€™Opera, second in two Stateside Gr.1s and dam of both Tempera (A P Indy), Champion two-year-old in the USA after winning the Gr.1 Breedersâ€™ Cup Juvenile Filliesâ€™, and the sire Equerry (St Jovite), a dual Gr.3 winner in France.
