Nadeson Park’s well bred sire Time Thief was represented by a smart looking Australian stakes winner when his daughter Volkoff won the Listed Miss Andretti Stakes at Ascot racecourse on Saturday.
In the process, the five-year-old provided trainer Gary Crispin with the biggest success of his career thus far.
Coming with a late, sustained burst under jockey Jason Whiting, Volkoff managed to hold off a strong late challenge from Durendal to win the 1100m listed feature by a long neck.
Her trainer was delighted with the win, saying, ““I couldn’t be prouder of her, she needs a good tempo in front and when there is she finishes off well.”
It was a first black type win for Volkoff who has now won nine times with Saturday’s win pushing her earnings to over AUS$300 000.
Her sire Time Thief, who is also responsible for high class stakes winners Happy Cash and Rom Baro, was a talented sprinter miler himself who won the Listed Zeditave Stakes and was second to multiple G1 winner Whobegotyou in the G1 Caulfield Guineas.
His sire Redoute’s Choice, triple champion in Australia, was once again in the headlines at the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, where he was responsible for a AUS$1.3 million colt.
One of the world’s premier stallions, Redoute’s Choice has more than 130 stakes winners to his credit including leading sire Snitzel, and former SA stars Wylie Hall, Musir and Majmu.
