After just a few days on the ground, this Backworth-bred Western Winter colt already has a ‘spring’ in his step! He is a grandson of Wild Aster, being out of the mare Blue Lace Agate (by Rakeen) who had a career record of 5 wins and 9 places from just 17 starts.

Wild Aster recorded 6 wins in her career including the Majorca Stakes (Grade 2) and the Ashburton Fillies Handicap (Listed) and 7 places. These included 2nds in the Cape Fillies Guineas (Grade 1), Green Point Stakes (WFA) (Grade 2), JB McIntosh Fillies Classic (Grade 2), Azalea Stakes (Grade 3) and Frank Martin Stakes (Listed) as well as a 3rd in the Premier’s Cup (Grade 2) and a 4th in the Arc-en-Ciel Paddock Stakes (Grade 1).

This is the family of Tropical Garden, Damascus Road, Alastor – 10 wins including the J&B Met (Grade 1), Hawaii Stakes (Grade 2) and Cup Trial (Grade 3) – and National Flame with 11 wins.

Congratulations to Backworth Stud!
