Successful Family to Fore

The well-related Spooning has showed a good degree of the family ability with an encouraging start to her career from the Caulfield stable of Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr.

Spelled after an unplaced debut run in the spring, the Waikato Stud-bred and sold filly returned to action at Pakenham yesterday evening and raced away to a 4l victory over 1400 metres.

A daughter of Ocean Park, Spooning was a $120,000 purchase at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale for ICON Racing and Michael Kent Racing.

She is a half-sister to Savabeel’s G3 Eagle Technology S. winner Love Affair and they are out of the Centaine mare Ungaro, also the dam of the G3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup winner Somepin Anypin, a son of Pins.

Ungaro is a sister to the G1 Goodwood H. and G3 Tesio S. winner Centisle and half-sister to the two-time Group 3 winner Sylvaner, who produced the G1 Kenilworth Cape Derby winner Atyaab.
