For Your Eyes Only…

May 09, 2017

After an exciting weekend of racing that saw multiple Group 1-winning and producing stallion Choisir get more stakes winners than any other stallion in Australia, we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight our filly by the impressive global sire!

Two-year-old colt Taking Aim was successful in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial Classic at the Gold Coast Turf Club, while a few races later Religify recorded his 11th career win, taking out the Listed Prime Minister Cup, taking Choisir’s stakes tally to 81.

Purchased from the Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale earlier this year in conjunction with Julian Blaxland’s Blue Sky Bloodstock and Queensland-based stud Aquis Farm, our filly is the third foal of the three-time Listed-winning Bletchley Park mare For Your Eyes Only.

A winner on her two-year-old debut, For Your Eyes Only went on to take out the Listed Gimcrack Stakes at just her second start by three lengths to highlight her juvenile ability, and in the process defeated next start Group 2 Karrakatta Plate winner Gold Rocks by just under four lengths.

Going onto to claim a further two stakes races throughout her career, For Your Eyes Only retired with ten wins and six placed performances from 27 starts, and over $620,000 in earnings.

Bletchley Park, the broodmare sire of this filly has produced 10 stakes winners highlighted by Group 1 winner Covertly and the ten-time stakes winner Grand Nirvana.

Being Magic Millions eligible is another bonus, while the filly will be part-owned by one of Australia’s upcoming studs in Aquis Farm.
