New 2YO Stakes-Winner for Choisir
Choisir is getting closer to that century of stakes-winners with promising filly Lady Naturaliste (2f Choisir x Calcatta, by Tale of the Cat) adding to his tally with a strong win in the Listed SAJC Cinderella Stakes at Morphettville on Saturday.
The Matt Cumani trained filly was fourth and second at her first two starts in metropolitan Melbourne races before finishing sixth in the $2million Inglis Millennium to Castelvecchio.
That good performance saw her sent off favourite for this 1050 metre sprint and she rewarded punters with a half length victory.
A $150,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the draft of Edinburgh Park for P Diamond / Boomer Bloodstock (FBAA) / Cumani Racing, Lady Naturaliste was bred by Ian Smith and is the first winner for stakes-winning Tale of the Cat (USA) Calcatta.
Edinburgh Park sold the current yearling from Calcatta, a colt by Pride of Dubai, for $170,000 at the Magic Millions earlier this year to Ciaron Maher Bloodstock and is now in foal to Zoustar after missing the previous year.
Lady Naturaliste is the 94th takes-winner for ever popular sire Choisir, who has 10 yearlings to be offered at Inglis Premier starting today.
