Australian bred two year-old You’re Amazing (2f Dylan Thomas x Fancy That, bu Volksraad) opened her winning account with a stylish victory at Scottsville in South Africa on Tuesday.
Trained by Charles Laird for Mr and Mrs Markus Jooste, You’re Amazing strode clear to take the 1200 metre dash by a length and a quarter at her third start.
You’re Amazing was a $50,000 purchase for James Bester Bloodstock from the 2010 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale, plucked from the draft of Caithness Breeding.
She is the second winner for stakes-placed Volksraad (GB) mare Fancy That (NZ), who comes from the family of Group I winners Suave Dancer and Zavite.
You’re Amazing is the second Australian bred Dylan Thomas to win in South Africa joining the smart stakes-winner Dylan’s Promise.
A champion son of Danehill, Dylan Thomas is the sire of European stakes-winners Furner’s Green and Tannery and is set to return to Coolmore Australia this spring at a fee of $13,750.
