bloodstock investor Adam Mackrell of Bell View Park Stud had the dream introduction
to the racing and breeding world when he bought classy mare Russeting on the
advice of Duncan Ramage of DGR Thoroughbreds for $300,000 at the 2009 Magic
Millions National Broodmare Sale.
At her first run for Mr Mackrell and his Bell View Park Stud Syndicate, Russeting won the Group I Tatts Winter Stakes at Eagle Farm and in so doing paid for herself and attained the revered status of Group I winner.
Russeting was retired to stud the following year, but luck deserted her in her first season at stud and she missed to High Chaparral (IRE).
Sent to Darley heavyweight Street Cry (IRE) last spring, Russeting has progressed through this pregnancy in textbook fashion and delivered this lovely filly on August 24.
"The filly is a good size first foal with a birth weight of 52kg," reports Adam Mackrell.
"As you can see she is fairly leggy and hasa lot of quality about her, very similar toRusseting, who has an excellent temperament and has taken to motherhood very well."
