Vancouver X Raid
1 year old Bay Filly
Sire: Vancouver Dam: Raid
The yearling filly is by first season sire Vancouver, who was the undefeated Champion 2yo of his year. As a juvenile Vancouver had 4 starts for 4 wins including the Listed Breeders Plate, Group 3 Canonbury Stakes, Group 2 Todman Stakes and most importantly the Group 1 Golden Slipper. Vancouver is off to a flying start with his first crop of yearlings. Many leading stables have purchased his progeny and they realised up to $400,000 at the recent Magic Millions yearling auction.
Our filly is impeccably bred being out of the Stakes winning Pins mare Raid, the winner of 5 races and Group 1 placed in the ARC Diamond Stakes as a juvenile. Raid has produced 3 horses to run for 3 winners including Mujallad who is a three-time winner and Group 3 placed, Tarismo a five-time winner and listed place and Missandei a three-time winner this season. Raid is a half-sister to Listed placed and multiple metropolitan winner Cruising Speed and Purely Spectacular the dam of dual Group winner Stratum Star. This is the brilliant family that includes Group 1 winners Emancipation, Railings and Virage De Fortune.
"I was hoping I could come away from the sale with a Vancouver, and this is one that has physical scope and quality, and also only two dams on the page. It's full of Black Type. Stratum Star sits in the second dam, its a young pedigree. A beautiful filly, she is well balanced with a good head carriage. She may make a two-year-old but she has good physical scope to train on..." Mick Price.
The Vancouver x Raid filly was purchased for $160,000 at the Magic Millions yearling sale.
