It is amazing how some horses grab your attention when you attend a yearling sale and for whatever reason you can’t really find a reason not to like the horse. That is the case with this filly. She has good presence about her and gets around like a good horse. I loved her colour. It is hard to go past a good looking bay horse. I inspected her five times which is the most I have inspected a yearling in a long time. She really grabbed my attention.

I was amazed after I purchased her how many people came up to me to say they felt I had just purchased the best buy in the Perth Magic Millions Sale. Let’s hope they are right because I had expected to go to at least $60,000 to secure the filly.

I am a big fan of Al Maher. He was a very good racehorse and has a superb pedigree. He has been an outstanding sire with 56 stakes horses to his credit. Unchain My Heart was one of Prime Thoroughbreds best performers on the track and won 10 races and $595,980 in stakes money. She won three stakes races at Flemington including the Andrew Ramsden Stakes twice and was one of only two Australian bred horses to contest the 2014 Melbourne Cup.

On 20 February an Al Maher filly named Amerheri which we syndicated won her maiden very impressively at Randwick. I purchased Almerheri to be a Classic 3yo with her having a stout female line like this filly. We haven’t got many sires in Australia who can consistently get these types of fillies. Due to fertility issues Al Maher has only averaged 54 foals in his past three crops.

It appears we have another good class Al Maher filly wearing our colours.

Al Maher

Al Maher has done a remarkable job with him siring 387 individual winners. He has sired 56 stakes horses including the Group 1 winners Delicacy, Fat Al, Diamond Drille and Almalad as well as Majestic Music, Budriguez, Silverstream, Badawiya and of course Unchain My Heart. He is an incredibly versatile sire getting 2yo Classic winners through to 3200m winners.

Al Maher was a very good racehorse winning at Randwick as a 2yo. He went on to be one of the very best three year bolds winning the VRC Group 1 Australian Guineas as well as the VRC Carbine Club Stakes and STC Gloaming Stakes.

Demon Queen

Demon Queen was very lightly raced but won twice and was placed 2nd in the Listed Belmont Oaks. She has had just the one foal to race with it being a winner and metropolitan placed from just seven starts. Demon Queen is out of the great producing mare Narmada which threw 10 winners from 11 to race including the Perth Cup winner Black Tom and three other stakes horses.

This is a very good family with ‘Black Type’ winners across the page. I am on the look out for an Oaks filly and this one fits the bill. She is by a sire that can get a superior staying female out of a superb staying family with the 2nd dam being by Blushing Groom one of the great broodmare sires of the world. His daughters have produced 311 stakes horses including 24 Group 1 winners.

This filly is a stunning type and heads to Patrick Payne.
