Patinack Farm filly Pane In The Glass was a dominant winner of the $250,000 Inglis Nursery (1000m) at Randwick on Saturday. The Testa Rossa filly unleashed a powerful finish to stroll home from Jackpot Queen (Not A Single Doubt) and Pure Force (Beautiful Crown).
In recent weeks, Nathan Tinkler’s operation has been on the front foot preparing for its future with the additions of Monaco Consul (NZ) and Lope De Vega (Ire) to its Sandy Hollow roster for 2011.
Stable star Gathering travelled to Perth to win the G1 Railway Stakes at Ascot last month and Pane In The Glass arrived from Brisbane to win the valuable sales – linked in Sydney yesterday.
Pane In The Glass (2f Testa Rossa – Lyrics by Bluebird) had won on debut at Eagle Farm before trainer John Thompson re-routed her to Randwick. She was a $32,000 buy at the 2010 Inglis Classic yearling sale and made it consecutive Inglis Nurseries for Classic graduates following Chance Bye last year.
Pane In The Glass was offered for sale by Sledmere Stud and the historic Scone based property will offer her half-sister by first season sire Excellent Art at the 2011 Classic Sale.
First season sires have an exceptional record at the Classic Sale. Graduates include the Group 1 winners Pressday (Domesday), Secret Admirer (Dubawi) and Chance Bye (Snitzel).
Pane In The Glass is from the winning Bluebird mare Lyrics who is a half-sister to the former exceptional sprinter and top New Zealand sire Gold Brose. She is the dam of seven named foals, all of which are winners.
The Patinack filly can emulate Chance Bye in the $250,000 Inglis Classic on January 22.
