Dual Group Three winner Lady Of Harrods has a Smart Two-Year-old in US

Mark Smith - Sunday September 27

Spendthrift Farm did not get much of a return for the $400,000 shelled out for dual Group III winner Lady Of Harrods at the 2016 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale when selling her son Omaha City for just $5,500 at Keeneland September last year, but there may be better days ahead after the 2yo colt powered to victory in Saturday’s Listed Hollywood Beach Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

Owned and trained by Mohamed Jehaludi Omaha City (Temple City) had been placed in four of his previous five starts on the track before breaking his maiden in the 5 furlong scamper on turf, defeating Big Daddy Dave (Khozan) by one and a quarter lengths with Hall Rich Legacy (Field Commission) three-quarters of a length back in third.


Lady Of Harrods came from the second of three crops left in Australia by Dubawi (USA).

Lady of Harrods won the 2012 MRC Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield.

Purchased by Russell Cameron for $80,000 at the 2011 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale, she went on to bank over $277,000 highlighted by wins in the Group III MRC Thousand Guineas Prelude and Group III HDF McNeil Stakes.

She was bought by Segenhoe Stud, on behalf of Fairway Thoroughbreds, at the 2014 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale and was back in the same ring two years later when purchased by Spendthrift for $400,000 when a carrying a colt by Snitzel.

The daughter of Dubawi was exported to the US alongside the stakes-placed Fastnet Rock mare Ameristralia, Listed Morphettville Guineas winner Forever Discreet (Bernardini), stakes placed Rosehill winner Cana (Fastnet Rock) and Krupt’s sister Prairy Kat (Flying Spur).

Ameristralia was featured in Breednet recently when her Into Mischief colt made the equal third highest price of day three of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale when knocked down for $400,000.
