Talented filly Lady of Shamrock (3f Scat Daddy x Blushing Issue, by Blushing John) landed her second Black Type victory when taking out the $74,500 China Doll Stakes at Santa Anita.
The John Sadler trained filly won the Blue Norther Stakes at the same venue last year and returned in top form for this assignment.
She switched off early and then finished home hard to win the one mile contest on turf by a length and a half, her overall record now three wins from six starts with prizemoney of $135,400.
Lady of Shamrock is a half-sister to Grade II winner Smooth Jazz, stakes-winner She’s Sensational and is one of five winners from Blushing Issue, a half-sister to Grade I winner Royal Chariot.
She is one of six stakes-winners for leading young sire Scat Daddy, whose oldest progeny are three year-olds.
