Bebop rocks in Singapore
An international pedigree was to the fore when the New Zealand-bred Bebop opened his winning account in Singapore.
Trained by Hideyuki Takaoka, the four-year-old successfully stepped up to 1700m for the first time on Sunday evening.
Bebop was a $45,000 Karaka Ready To Run purchase from Woburn Farm’s draft and is by Waikato Stud’s Group One winner Rock ‘n’ Pop out Pteridophyte.
The dam is a daughter of O’Reilly and she is in turn out of the Shirley Heights mare Fern.
Pteridophyte is a half-sister to the dam of the North American Group One winner Forte Dei Marmi.
She is also a half-sister to the dam of Nashmiah and Ighraa.
They are respectively English and French black type winners.
