Top effort from Tofane
Promising filly Tofane is the latest black type graduate for Waikato Stud stallion Ocean Park.
She went to the next level on Saturday with a gallant run to finish runner-up in the Gr.2 Euclase Stakes at Morphettville.
Her effort augurs particularly well as she had only had three prior starts for a win and a placing.
Trained by Michael Moroney, Tofane is a daughter of the winning Galileo mare Baggy Green.
She is a half-sister to the Gr.1 Queensland Oaks winner Youngstar and the stakes performer Eleven Seconds.
It is a family with a strong international presence, the third dam being the dual Group One English and Irish Oaks winner User Friendly.
Ocean Park has produced 88 individual winners and a dozen stakes performers, including the multiple Group One placegetter Rondinella.
