Premier focus on Pasadena

Flemington’s Talindert Stakes on Saturday was a timely reminder of the quality on offer from Eliza Park International at the Inglis Melbourne Premier yearling sale starting next Sunday, March 1.

Lining up for her debut in the Talindert, EPI graduate Pasadena Girl raced greenly in the opening stages before knuckling down to win the Listed event with plenty in hand from Stay With Me (Street Cry) and Take Pride (Reward For Effort).

The Savabeel filly was part of the Eliza Park International draft at last year’s Melbourne Premier and cost Peter Moody just $25,000.  “I’ve been taken with her from Day 1,” Moody told AAP.  “I think she’s real good.

“She’s an immature Savabeel filly and is doing everything above what she should be doing at this point in her career.  She’s been brilliant at home.

Pasadena Girl (2f Savabeel – Nina From Pasadena by Redoute’s Choice) is from an Ellerslie winning sister to black-type sprinter Renewed Vitality.  She has a yearling sister by Savabeel entered as Lot 408 for the Melbourne Premier.

Eliza Park International will consign five Savabeel yearlings to Melbourne including a half sister to Kiwi stakes winner, Jacquetta (Lot 207), a colt from Group 2 winner Fire Song (Lot 237) and a full brother to another stakes winner in Queen Sabeel (Lot 270).
