2017 brown filly by Showcasing (GB) ex Valentine Glory (GB) (Kyllachy (GB))
Sendacard was a promising 2nd on debut at Thirsk last August when relatively unfancied. She then ran below par at Carlisle in September when travelling on her own to the races seemed to unsettle her. However, she put that well behind her when a fine 2nd at Chelmsford in early November. Rated 72, she has the scope to progress into a fun sprint handicapper this season. Her ability to handle soft ground should be an asset too. Pedigree-wise, she is a daughter of the top class stallion Showcasing whose Group 1 winners to date include Quiet Reflection and Advertise. The dam, Valentine Glory, is a half-sister to the Richard Fahey-trained Listed-winner Sparkling Portrait and a granddaughter of the Lancashire Oaks heroine State Crystal.
