Dame Giselle Cracks $1million in Earnings

Tara Madgwick - Saturday September 5

For the past two years the Group II ATC Furious Stakes (1200m) at Randwick has been won by I Am Invincible fillies with this Saturday’s rendition won by another daughter of Yarraman Park’s champion sire in Dame Giselle, who follows in the footsteps of Pure Elation and Libertini.

Winner of the Group II ATC Reisling Stakes at two, the Peter and Paul Snowden trained Dame Giselle won the Group II ATC Silver Shadow Stakes when returning from a spell and kept up the good work with this stylish victory.

Despite being caught wide in the run, Dame Giselle responded well for Tommy Berry, showing her brilliant turn of foot to score a half length win over late closing Frankel filly Hungry Heart.


“She had no luck at any stage, but she showed her tenacity today, she’s a special filly,” said Paul Snowden.

“She’ll go to 1400m next for the Tea Rose and we think she’ll excel over that trip where she can take more of a sit.”

Purchased by Go Bloodstock for $500,000 out of the Sledmere Stud draft at Inglis Easter, Dame Giselle was bred by China Horse Club and races for Sir Owen Glenn’s Go Bloodstock and China Horse Club, who retained a share in the talented filly.

Dame Giselle was a stunning yearling

She has the impressive record of four wins and two placings from eight starts with prizemoney in excess of $1million.

Dame Giselle is a three-quarter sister to Listed MRC Merson Cooper Stakes winner Steal My Kisses out of the Group II VRC AV Kewney Stakes and Group II MRC Angus Armanasco Stakes winner Ballet Society, who was third in the Group I MRC Thousand Guineas.

Ballet Society has a yearling colt by Pride of Dubai, but will have no foal this year after missing last spring.

Dame Giselle is another star filly for I Am Invincible, who stands at Yarraman Park at a fee of $209,000.
