An eye-catching, strong nine-year-old mare, Barbieri offers an opportunity to acquire a broodmare, who, having made a great start to her new career has potential to do even better.
She ran a handful of times for trainer Jeremy Gask, winning over five furlongs as a two-year-old at Kempton Park and reaching a career-high rating of 90. On her final start as a juvenile she finished a good fifth in the Listed Bosra Sham Stakes.
To date, she has produced two individuals that have made it to the racecourse and they have both won. The David Barron-trained Scuzeme (rated 80) won over five furlongs earlier this year, and Roaring Rory has won three times over the minimum trip and has placed a further eight times.
She also has a two-year-old filly by Champs Elysees and an impressive-looking yearling colt by Penny's Picnic, both currently in France.
Her sire, Encosta De Lago, was a high-class Gr1 winner in Australia. A good producer of sprinters, his progeny include the brilliant Chautauqua, the winner of six Gr1 races. Sacred Kingdom, another son, was a prolific Gr1-winning sprinter in Honk Kong.
Barbieri's dam, Glenmara, has produced three individual winners including this mare. One of the three, Leitra, was trained in Ireland by Michael Halford and won a Cork maiden by four-lengths and placed a further five times, including in a Group 3.
Barbieri is currently in foal to Swiss Spirit, who has made a very exciting start to his stud career with five winners with his 13 runners to date. Her foal is due 3rd February 2018.
Having made a pleasing start to her broodmare career, Barbieri certainly has it in her to keep producing winners and can continue to succeed.
