The five-time winning mare Broughtons Fancy is
offered for sale. She remains in full training with Karen
Tutty in North Yorkshire, ready to continue her track
career, but also rates a fine broodmare prospect.
Broughtons Fancy was precocious enough to finish second on her debut as a two-year-old and was actually placed on seven of her first eight starts. She got off the mark over six-furlongs on the AW at Wolverhampton at three and won four races in total by the end of that season. She added another victory during 2017 and her total record now stands at five wins and 21 placings from 47 starts, a highly meritorious record.
She has done most of her winning on synthetics, but has also won on the grass and proven her ability to handle a range of different turf conditions, from fast to soft. She has won at six and seven-furlongs and has been rated as high as 74 at one point, so her current BHA ratings of 55 on turf and 51 AW look favourable.
Her dam Lifetime Romance was a debut winner for John Oxx before running creditably in Grp-3 company on her only other outing. Her other winning progeny include the 83-rated Amoure Medici. Broughtons Fancy's third dam is the legendary Ridgewood Pearl, an outstanding miler who won the Grp-1 Irish 1,000 Guineas, Grp-1 Coronation Stakes, Grp-1 Prix du Moulin and the Grp-1 Breeders' Cup Mile.
Such a pedigree clearly points to a potential breeding career for Broughtons Fancy at some stage. She is blessed with very good conformation and is a good strong-bodied filly with plenty of size about her, whilst she is a very good-natured mare to deal with.
Don't miss out on this wonderful low cost opportunity to get involved with a proven winner.
