One to Watch – Canberra
Tara Madgwick - Friday October 25

John Sargent has a great record with Oaks type fillies and is no doubt thinking that way with this blue-blooded Dundeel filly that broke the ice for her first win at Canberra on Friday.

Stick 'Em Up as a yearlingClosely related to Champion 3YO Stayer and five-time Group I winner Shoot Out, Stick ‘Em Up showed the benefit of race experience and step up to 2000 metres to power clear and win at her fifth start by an easy two lengths.

Entered for the Group I VRC Oaks, Stick ‘Em Up was a $110,000 Inglis Easter Book Two purchase from the Lime Country Thoroughbreds draft for DGR Thoroughbreds and runs for Westcode Pty Ltd.

Bred by Linda Huddy, who raced Shoot Out with her husband Graham, Stick ‘Em Up is the second winner from Shoot Fer Love, a half-sister by Ferocity to $3.2 million earner Shoot Out and Group III winners I’m a Princess and Cassandara Shadow. She is also a sister to the dam of another stakes-winner in Silvera.

Shoot Out, I’m a Princess and Silvera are all by High Chaparral (IRE), who is the sire of Stick ‘Em Up’s sire Dundeel.

A Champion 3YO that has proven a runaway success at stud, Arrowfield Stud’s Dundeel has had a great start to spring with his son Super Seth winning the Group I MRC Caulfield Guineas, while his four year-old gelding The Inevitable is on target for the $5million Golden Eagle.

Dundeel is fully booked this spring at a fee of $66,000.
