Karaka 2020 – Lot 45 Astern (AUS) – Landslide (USA), Bay Filly



Lot 45 bay filly Astern – Landslide (More Than Ready) $45,000 (draft: Jamieson Park)

Sam Munro (Jamieson Park) said: “We really like the mare (Landslide) and have spent quite a bit of money on the family. We’ve got a Savabeel two-year-old out of her, Savabeel filly at foot, and she’s in foal to the Autumn Sun (Redoute’s Choice).

“She’s a really lovely filly by a super talented first season sire. We bought the mare in America, and sent her to Australia to go to Astern. He was probably the most talented first season sire that year.

Astern (Medgalia d’Oro) was a debut winner that won the Silver Slipper (Gr. 2, 1100m) at his second start, and after winning the Runto Rose (Gr. 2, 1200m) fresh-up at three he then won the Golden Rose (Gr. 1, 1400m).

“As breeders, we’re happy that she’s going to Te Akau where she’ll get every chance,” Munro said. “She was a very good filly to prepare. She’s got a good temperament, good eater, no fuss, and you couldn’t get a more relaxed filly.”

The dam, Landslide, is by exceptional Australian broodmare sire More Than Ready (Southern Halo). Renowned the world over, More Than Ready is the best sire of winners (1795) worldwide and also an outstanding sire of sires.
