Sire: DUNADEN (FR)
Dam: FORCE IN THE WINGS (IRE)
Dam Sire: IN THE WINGS (GB)
A three-year-old filly by Dunaden out of an In The Wings mare is offered for sale.
She is a daughter of the unraced Force In The Wings, who has previously produced two winners on the flat in Europe.
The dam is a half-sister to Nights Cross, who was a Listed winner and Grp-2 placed as a two-year-old, and the Grade-3 placed Irish hurdler You Need Luck. The extended family features numerous black-type earners.
The covering sire Dunaden was a remarkably tough and versatile performer during his racing career, winning the Grp-1 Melbourne Cup, Grp-1 Caulfield Cup and Grp-1 Hong Kong Vase. He retired to Overbury Stud in 2015 but sadly passed away last year.
He seems assured to leave a lasting legacy as a sire, though, as the relatively small number of runners he has been represented by on the flat so far include the 99-rated triple winner Ranch Hand, the 91-rated four-time winner Just Hubert and the 88-rated four-time winner Pearl Warrior.
This is a most impressive list, particularly considering that Dunaden's progeny are surely going to be seen to maximum effect when racing under NH rules in the future.
His first runner over obstacles was a winning one, when The Pink'n won a juvenile hurdle at Newton Abbot in July 2019. The same horse would win again at Stratford in March, whilst the sire's only other offspring to run over hurdles at the time of writing is Soldier On, who was a highly promising second at Bangor.
With a classy distaff pedigree complementing the influence of a highly talented and much missed sire, this attractive filly appears to have extremely bright long-term prospects. Please get in touch for more information.
