This wonderful early March-foaled filly was the third top-priced lot sold at the Tattersalls Ascot Yearling Sale and the feeling is that she would have sold for considerably more had she been sent to one of the more fashionable sales.

She was purchased by her trainer Richard Hannon and after hearing very good independent reports about her from the sale we were in touch with him that same day and delighted to secure the filly following our inspection.  She looks a strong filly who should be a fast two-year-old, she also moves very well.

Starspangledbanner was exceptionally fast and the best son of Choisir.  Like his sire he won the Gr.1 Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot as well as the Gr.1 July Cup at Newmarket.  In Australia he was a dual Gr.1 winner of the Oakleigh Plate and Caulfield Guineas.  He suffered with infertility initially at stud but from his first crop of just 28 runners sired a remarkable eight Stakes winners which featured two Royal Ascot winners in The Wow Signal (Gr.2 Coventry and also the Gr.1 Prix Morny) and Anthem Alexander (Gr.2 Queen Mary Stakes).  His first big crop of 2yos hit the track in 2019 and he was once again a huge success, notably with Millisle winning the Gr.1 Cheveley Park Stakes.  Click here to view sire information about Starspangledbanner.

This filly’s dam Callendula was tough and consistent, winning two races and reaching a useful peak Racing Post rating of 88.  She hails from a useful Stakes-producing family that includes the Gr.3 Lingfield Derby Trial winner Munwar, also the Listed winner and Gr.1-placed Hateel.            

This filly is eligible for the Plus 10 Bonus Scheme.
