Lot 525 br f Power – Romantic Time (Fastnet Rock) $92,500 (draft: Cambridge Stud)
The first foal of a race winning filly over 1250 metres in Sydney, by Champion sire Fastnet Rock.
Te Akau trained Age of Fire recently became the 32nd group one winner for Fastnet Rock, and in winning the Karaka Million (Listed, 1200m) his stable-mate Avantage notched his 127th stakes win.
Power (Oasis Dream) has made a great start to his stud career, siring five individual group and stakes winners with his first crop two-year-olds. Gift of Power is leading the way for her sire, winning eight of her 12 starts, including a group two and listed victory.
“She really impressed me during our physical inspections,” said David Ellis. “It’s a fast two-year-old family. She’s a filly we can set for the Karaka Million and I think she’s great buying at the price.”
The filly boasts a lovely Danzig cross, through the stallions on each side of her pedigree: Power – Oasis Dream – Green Desert (Danzig) and Fastnet Rock – Danehill (Danzig).
