Daffodil Produces First Foal

Waikato Stud’s triple G1 winning racemare Daffodil produced her first foal on Wednesday morning.

After a copybook delivery, the Kevin Gray-trained Australasian Oaks winner produced a beautiful chestnut filly by the Champion Hong Kong sire, Pins.

“She’s a nice leggy, attractive filly,” said Waikato Stud’s Mark Chittick.

“We are very happy to get a filly.”

The eye-catching foal has some big shoes to fill.

Her successful No Excuse Needed dam Daffodil was the Champion New Zealand 3YO of 2008/2009 with elite level wins in the Gr.1 AJC Australian Oaks and in the Gr.1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas. At four, she returned to garner further G1 reward, this time by way of the Hawke’s Bay Windsor Park Challenge Plate.

Daffodil, who is proving to be a wonderful mum, will either visit Pins or Savabeel this season.
