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!

Clever Spark has undergone a preparation of training including barrier practice, two trials and will return to the stables in August for a chance to be racing in the Spring Racing Carnival.

“This filly is very forward and correct and hails from a speedy family of proven early runners so we expect her to be up and running early... she's showing us great signs already” – Joseph Vella, CEO Wingrove Park.

From a dam line that simply just produces winner after winner and matched with one of the quickest sons of Exceed and Excel to hit the track, Kuroshio. This fillies dam Dual Spark (by Spartacus) has been a formidable broodmare post 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! Why wouldn't you want to get involved? Her progeny include stakes winner and Group 2 placegetter SPARKS FLY (1ST Listed Morphettville Guineas), El Spark (2ND Group 3 Auraria Stakes), Sparks Burn (3RD Listed St Albans Stakes) and Sparks Alight (1st Bendigo Gold Bracelet - 5x winner).

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. Kuroshio’s first European crop are now 2yo's in the northern hemisphere with progeny running at a 46% strike rate to winners – a figure that cannot be matched by any other European first-season sire!

Mum is a proven black-type producer time and time again!

The filly is currently spelling at Wingrove Park and will return to full training at Bendigo with stakes winning trainer Shane Fliedner in August to commence her racing preparation. She is broken in, had a full training campaign and is ready to race!
