Gr.3 victory for February Sun

03/09/2011 February Sun

February Sun maintained her unbeaten run to win the Mercedes-Benz Stuten-Preis Von Baden (Gr.3) at Baden-Baden today for trainer J-C Rouget.

Bred, raised and sold by Newsells Park Stud, this three-year-old filly is out of Flawly (Old Vic), who finished second in the Grade 1 Garden City Breeders' Cup Handicap and is a half-sister to George Washington's sole offspring, the Listed placed Date With Destiny.

By Monsun, February Sun is a half-sister to Gr.3 winner and Gr.1 Prix du Jockey Club second Best Name.  She realised 450,000gns as yearling at Arqana Deauville Sale in August 2009 when selling to C Laffron-Parias.

February Sun also has a beautifully balanced half-brother yearling by Dansili, bred on the proven Dansili/Sadler's Wells cross responsible for Gr.1 winner Passage of Time and Gr.2 winner, Father Time.  He will be offered at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 - Lot 85.

February Sun was Newsells Park Stud's seventh Stakes-winning graduate of the year.  The others being Gerfalcon (Ripon Two-Year-Old Trophy), Gitano Hernando (Singapore Cup), Masked Marvel (Bahrain Trophy and Cocked Hat Stakes), Miss Work Of Art (Marygate Fillies' Stakes) and St Moritz (Doncaster Mile and Hambleton Handicap).
