Another winner producer at Bathurst

Another winner producer at Bathurst

On March 6th at Bathurst the 2yo filly Windy Hill Lucy gave first season sire McWicked his second winner when she scored a narrow but impressive win over her more fancied stablemate Drama Chick.

Trained by Steve Turnbull and driven by Amanda Turnbull, Windy Hill Lucy rated 1:58.0 for the 1730 metres and sprinted home the final sectional in 28.1 seconds.

In winning Windy Hill Lucy elevated her dam, the 12 time winning Lucy Lamb p,1:56.2 $45,890, into winner-producing status and put a focus on her yearling half-sister by Captain Crunch which is Lot 51 in next weekend’s Nutrien Bathurst Yearling Sale.

Being offered by Golden Gait Stud this filly has her first three dams as sub-2:00 winners and in addition all three are sub-2:00 producers.

Lucy Lamb’s dam History Repeating is a half-sister to 3yo Queensland Triad winner All Eyes On Me p,1:51.0 $349,926 which is now the dam of NSW Carousel winner All Eyes On Us p,1:51.4 $307,515.

History Repeating is also a half-sister to 2yo Queensland Triad runner-up Hidden Gem p,1:56.0 $104,828 which is the dam of Hidden Courage p,1:50.5 $243,702.

Lot 51 is being prepared for next week’s sale by Golden Gait Stud and a call to 0427 443 267 will enable arrangements to be made for a pre-sale inspection.
