Wingrove Park presents the opportunity to lease this VOBIS Gold filly that hails from a winning family with the breeders of Royal Symphony.

Based in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, the stud farm is responsible for sixteen black-type and metropolitan winners from a boutique of broodmares – some of which are closely related to this filly!

“This filly is very forward and correct from a speedy family of proven early runners so we expect her to be running in the 2yo races” – Joseph Vella, CEO Wingrove Park.

From a dam line that produces winners matched with one of the quickest sons of Exceed and Excel to hit the track. This fillies dam Dual Spark (by Spartacus) has been a formidable broodmare capping a racetrack career that culminated in three Melbourne metropolitan wins and finishing 2ND in the Group 3 Dermody Stakes.

From seven foals to race – six have been multiple winners and three have gone black-type, collectively winning 16 races and over $500,000 in stakes earnings. Her progeny include stakes winner SPARKS FLY (1ST Listed Morphettville Guineas), El Spark (2ND Group 3 Auraria Stakes), Sparks Burn (3RD Listed St Albans Stakes), Sparks Alight (1st Bendigo Gold Bracelet) and More Spark (recent winner - 17/10/2017).

Darley’s freshman sire Kuroshio is poised to make an impact off the track having notched three stakes wins (two as a 2yo) including the Group 2 McEwen Stakes defeating 3x Group 1 winner Moment of Change. His yearlings at the 2017 sales fetched as much as 12x his service fee – reflective of the early going types he is producing.

The filly is currently in full training at Bendigo with stakes winning trainer Shane Fliedner.
