2018 year old Bay Filly
Sire: Best Choice Dam: Bedouin
Trainer's Name: Mitch Beer
BEST CHOICE - BEDOUIN THIEF Filly (Super Vobis qualified)
Best Choice is a half-brother to one of the best Australian bred sprinters of all time - and the best horse to have ever raced on the highly competitive Hong Kong racing circuit - in the great SILENT WITNESS, winner of his first 17 starts with nine of his successes coming at G1 level including consecutive runnings of the Hong Kong International Sprint.
SILENT WITNESS is a son of the dual city-winning excellent producer Jade Tiara - also dam of triple Group winner SISTER MADLY, the G2 placed VERY FIT - and this filly's sire, Best Choice.
A $275,000 Easter yearling who raced just three times, recording an impressive debut victory at Canterbury before an unlucky injury ended his career, Best Choice was compared favourably by his trainer Clarry Conners to his triple G1 winner MOUAWAD.
Best Choice is a son of one of Danehill's best (on the track and at stud) sons in REDOUTE’s CHOICE, four times G1 winning multiple Champion Sire of 153 stakes winners inclusive of 32 G1 winners. And what a great sire of sires he is - to date, 19 of his sons have sired stakes winners including reigning Champion Sire SNITZEL and the highly popular NOT A SINGLE DOUBT.
This filly's dam Bedouin Thief is a daughter of another of Danehill's outstanding sons in DESERT KING, a triple G1 winning sire of 27 stakes winners including the champion MAKYBE DIVA andfellow big race winners DESERT WAR, MR DINOS, DARSALEM, CHELSEA ROSE and LACHLAN RIVER.
DESERT KING is doing a great job as a broodmare sire, his daughters to date producing 400 winners, 24 of whom are Stakes winners including the G1 sprinter EAGLE FALLS, the G2 winners BOCCA BACIATA and MANGO DIVA, and the G3 gallopers OLORDE, THAWAANY, TOPEKA, FABRIZIO, KALSA, MAHARA, PRIMA LUCE and REAL STOLLE.
This is the first foal for Bedouin Thief, daughter of the very good producer FELONY who is the dam of the tough 11-time-winning Metropolitan class galloper Lord Lucan who raced 97 times with a further 20 placings on his resume, as well as the highly regarded Caulfield winner Gold Heist.
FELONY is out of the Lunchtime mare, Crumbs, dam of six winners from seven to race including the multiple city winner Ooshku. CRUMBS’ dam JOY PAN, a 3/4 sister to G1 Perth Cup winner RUNYON, produced 7 winners from 9 to race including the G3 mare SISTER SHIRLEY (in turn grandam of G2 galloper VANQUISHED) and Listed winner Mirth (dam of G2 winner PARTY MOOD)... and she is also grandam of the G2 winner POTENTIAL STAR and Listed winners Battle Law and Falcon Walk.
This has been a strong black-type family for generations, its other members including the multiple G1 winners ZARITA, MARCEAU and ZASU, and the Group winners IL DON, MERRY MERRY RULER, AUREALIS, JOY LOVE, RUN LIKE THE WIND, JOY AND FUN, UPBEAT, BELLA MARTINI, HUMMA, WINK AND A NOD, TRACK JESTER and NIPS, Merry Ruler, Aurealis, Joy Love, Run Like The Wind, Joy And Fun, Upbeat, Bella Martini, Humma, Wink And A Nod, Track Jester and Nips - as well as the Australian Guineas winning high class stallion PINS and this year's G1 Blue Diamond Stakes hero WRITTEN BY.
This filly is typical of her family - she is a very good moving, athletic filly with a great temperament. She has been well educated, has a good turn of foot and a big stride that really covers the ground well. Out of a DESERT KING mare, she looks a strong filly who should get a trip. Her trainer Mitch Beer was very pleased with what she has shown to date and commented “…she is a smart, big moving filly, she is well-developed and has performed well in her first mini-preparation. I look forward to continuing on with her in late Autumn.”
