Grand display by well-bred filly
Regally-bred three-year-old Grand Bouquet is continuing to add performance to her rich pedigree.
The high-priced Waikato Stud-bred and sold graduate is now making excellent progress for trainer Kris Lees.
She has won three of her eight starts with her latest success over 1800 metres on the Gold Coast this week.
Grand Bouquet started a short-priced favourite under rider Blake Shinn and was untroubled to win.
A daughter of Savabeel, she is out of the Matamata farm’s three-time Group One winner Daffodil.
Also the dam of the stakes performer Snowdrop, Daffodil is from the family of the Group Two winner and Group One performer Believe Yourself.
Grand Bouquet was purchased at Karaka by the China Horse Club for $600,000.
