A full sister retained by Scott Bros to their new stallion acquisition and home-bred The Apache, Bold Pocahontas has foaled a Crusade filly last night at Highdown Stud.

It is the first foal for the flashy Bold Pocahontas, who will be continuing the 6th generation dynasty of Scott Bros’ foundation mare Lenore, whose grand-daughter is the great Gr1 winner Bold West – in turn the dam of Sugar Magnolia, West West and West Again. Apache Rose (by son of Sadlers Wells, Dolpour), the dam of Bold Pocahontas and The Apache produced five winners from seven foals and unfortunately passed away in foal to Mogok three years ago.

Its exciting times for Scott Bros, as Crusade’s first crop impressed at sales and saw the Gr1 Middle Park Stakes winners’ yearlings average R160 000 for 18 sold at the National Yearling Sale in April. Crusade’s damline is firing on all cylinders, as his Galileo half-sister Seventh Heaven is now a dual Gr1 winner – including the Gr1 Irish Oaks and recent Gr1 Yorkshire Oaks. Trainer Aiden O’Brien describes her as a big rangy filly and there is a chance she may go to the Breeders Cup for Fillies & Mares on the turf. Dam La Traviata (by Johannesburg) has now produced two Gr1 winners and a Gr2 second placed horse from her first three foals.

A top international Group winning racehorse in four countries, The Apache has returned to his birthplace and stands for a very reasonable fee of R6000 this season. The Apache, who crossed the line first in the Gr1 Arlington Million, has been Equinome tested and his outstanding results mirror his Gr1 winning racing performances – his part owner Winston Chow reports ‘with results indicating that he is top class, i.e Grade 1 in GRV (Genomic Racing Value) and Grade 1 in GBV(Genomic Breeding Value) and is a C-T (likely to produce sprinter milers) for Speed Gene Test’.
