A Savabeel filly not to be ignored
Savabeel three-year-old Ignored accounted for her older opposition in remarkable fashion at Te Rapa yesterday afternoon.
The Waikato Stud-bred and raced filly looked to have blown her chance at the start, giving away many lengths.
Rider Darren Danis didn’t panic, however, and he brought her with a strong finishing run along the fence for a highly impressive win.
Trained by Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman, Ignored has now won three of her seven starts and stakes company now awaits.
She is a half-sister to five winners, including Sharp Princess and Include who have been successful at black-type level.
Their dam is the O’Reilly mare She’s Snubbed and she is out of a sister to the multiple Group One winner Slight Chance.
She is in turn the mother of the Group winners Salgado and Dane Shadow.
The Gr.1 Queensland Derby winner Brambles, a son of Savabeel, also features on the pedigree page.
