Operatic

This daughter of the leading sire Showcasing was foaled in early March and is bred to be a fast and precocious racehorse.  She was purchased by the team at Ireland’s premier sale, the Goffs Orby where Harry Herbert felt that she was an absolute belter and very good walker.

She is by Showcasing, a top stallion and real influence for speed by Oasis Dream.  He has a very good percentage of black-type horses to runners that has been increasing year on year as the standard of mares covered has improved.  In 2018 he was the second leading British-based sire of 2yos in Europe, second only the marvellous Dubawi.  His best runners to date have been the Gr.1 winners Advertise and Quiet Reflection, the first-named backing up his Gr.1-winning 2yo campaign with a further two Gr.1 races in 2019; the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot and the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville.  Click here to view sire information about Showcasing.

An exceptionally strong first foal out of a winning Dream Ahead mare, the successful sprinter Dream Dana, this filly’s pedigree is quite simply all about speed.  Her 2nd dam was the multiple Group-winning sprinter Lidanna, the producer of numerous Stakes horses and herself the grandam of the Gr.1 l’Abbaye sprint winner Wizz Kid.    

Operatic is making very good progress under the management of Simon and Ed Crisford, on her debut she ran well but lost any chance of being competitive by becoming very unsettled in the stalls. After plenty of stalls practice at home, Operatic flew seven lengths clear at Windsor and followed this up with another win at Kempton under a 7lb penalty last time out! She is looking like a very exciting prospect for the future and will run in the Bosra Sham (Listed) at the end of October.
