2017 bay filly by Mukhadram (GB) ex Xtrasensory (GB) (Royal Applause (GB))
This filly is by William Haggas’ very tough Eclipse Stakes winner MUKHADRAM whose first crop are now three-year-olds. Her dam, XTRASENSORY, is the dam of eight winners from nine runners and she is by the very fast ROYAL APPLAUSE – a good source of speed/ precocity. This filly looks likely to take after her dam judging by her powerful and compact frame and she comes from the same stud as our high class two-year-old of 2018, KURIOUS.
David Elsworth trains from the historic Egerton House Stables in Newmarket. ‘Elsy’, now 79, is still at the top of his game with a fantastic 2018 that included Group 2 winner SIR DANCEALOT alongside a whole host of other major winners and an incredible strike rate. It was only a few years ago that his ARABIAN QUEEN produced a major shock to take the Group 1 Juddmonte International whilst Elsy is of course famous for the likes of DESERT ORCHID and 1988 Grand National winner RHYME ‘N’ REASON in the past.
