Lot 765 ch f Power – Jewels Gift (Stravinsky) $77,500 (draft: Cambridge Stud)
This filly has a magnificent pedigree and Te Akau had first-hand knowledge having trained the dam, Jewels Gift.
A filly with plenty of speed, Jewels Gift displayed all the right attributes: pace from the gate, professionalism, ability to quicken, and a good action when winning her first trial as a two-year-old by four lengths.
She was never able to replicate the form because of niggling injuries, but rest assured she was a filly with plenty of talent and one of the reasons Te Akau has purchased her first foal.
“This is a beautiful and precocious filly,” David Ellis said. “There is a lot of two-year-old speed in the family and the stock of Power is absolutely flying. She was a ‘must have’ on our list and we were stoked to get her.
Power (Oasis Dream) has made an immediate impact as one of the first season sires of two-year-old, with Gift of Power and Padraig leading the way.
“We all know how well Power is doing, and we know that Power can get a two-year-old up and ready, running and winning,” said Sir Patrick Hogan, owner of Cambridge Stud.
The filly has a lovely cross of both Danzig and Blushing Groom on each side of her pedigree and her appearance suggests she has inherited plenty quality from her dam.
Te Akau showed its liking for the progeny of Power when buying Lot 449 b c Power – The Lady (Stravinsky) $250,000 (draft: Cambridge Stud) at the Premier Sale.
