STRAWBRIDGE FILLY CLOVER WINS LISTED RACE
Taken from European Bloodstock News 18/10/12:
George Strawbridge’s homebred Dream Clover (OASIS DREAM) secured her second blacktype win in the Listed Prix de Saint-Cyr at Longchamp yesterday, following her success in the Listed Prix de la Cochere in September. Prior to that she finished third in the Gr.3 Prix de Lieurey at Deauville.
The three-year-old filly held off the equally determined Metal Rocket (Muhtahir) by a short neck, with Fontaine Margot (Ballingary) back in third, for the second time to Dream Clover, by one and a quarter lengths.
She is a half-sister to the three-year-old winner Elodie (DANSILI), who was sold for 52,000gns at last year’s Tattersalls December Mare Sale to Canirola Bloodstock, and is out of the Inchinor mare In Clover, who won the Gr.3 Prix de Flore and Listed (then) Prix de Lieurey.
In Clover is a half-sister to the French Listed winners Bayourida (Slew O’Gold) and Bellona (Bering) and this is the family of Hong Kong Gr.3 winner Dominant (Cacique), who won the valuable Tattersalls Millions Three-Year-Old Cup at Newmarket for Roger Varian, and the Listed Empress Stakes winner and dual Gr.3-placed Lily’s Angel (Dark Angel).
In Clover has a yearling filly by DANSILI and a filly foal by OASIS DREAM.
