Wallace successfully chases filly

Savabeel fan Michael Wallace struck early today to secure a quality filly by WS’s champion stallion. The China Horse Club’s New Zealand-based bloodstock and racing manager signed for the Cox Plate winner’s daughter out of the winning Danehill mare Love Diamonds for $640,000.

Offered by Sir Patrick Hogan’s Cambridge Stud, she is a half-sister to the Group placed Lovetessa. “She’s a filly that we’ve been looking at all week,” Wallace said. “Savabeel needs no introduction and this one is from one of Sir Patrick’s world-class families.

“Graeme Rogerson has got the full-sister, who is highly-regarded, and he was bidding on this one which gives you more confidence. “The Savabeel fillies are getting the job done and the statistics show that he’s an elite stallion and the market has woken up to that. He’s doing it all.” A decision has yet to be made whether the filly will remain in New Zealand or cross the Tasman.
