Loud makes a noise at Gosford

Ocean Park

The well-related Loud capped the steady improvement she has displayed in a brief career by breaking her maiden at Gosford on Friday afternoon.

Trained by Bjorn Baker for breeder Waikato Stud, the Ocean Park three-year-old was unplaced on debut before finishing a close second at Bathurst and dug deep to go one better over 1200 metres.

Sent out a hot favourite, Loud bounced well from a wide draws to sit in second spot before taking the lead early in the run home and stayed on strongly for a neck decision.

“She has still got improvement in her and it was good to see her get the job done,” successful rider Mitchell Bell said. “I think she will benefit from blinkers as well.”

Loud is a daughter of the Pins mare Music, who is out of the multiple winner and stakes performed Gold Brose mare Zamfir.

She is a half-sister to the G2 Japan-New Zealand International Trophy winner Society Beau, whose half-brother Sandblaster was a stakes winner and a half-sister left the G1 Telegraph H. winner Irish Fling.

The G1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas winner Final Destination and the G1 Stradbroke H. winner Tyzone also feature on the pedigree page.

Loud’s dam Music has an unraced juvenile Ardrossan filly named Sindee and foaled a daughter of Time Test in 2021 before returning to Ardrossan.
