A close relative of Lammerskraal’s exciting new sire Visionaire was according “Rising Star Status” by esteemed industry publication –Thoroughbred Daily News (TDN).
Cursor (by the Gone West grandson Quality Road) had made a smart debut when second at Saratoga and went one better when impressively scoring over 1400m at Belmont Park yesterday.
The two-year-old filly, a $340 000 yearling buy, was sent off a prohibitive 3-5 favourite and she duly powered home to score by three lengths.

This is also the same family as the outstanding US galloper Bryan G.

Lot 13 –this colt is a half brother to 7 winners, including G1 contender Patriotic Rebel, and he is out of a daughter of top class broodmare sire Qui Danzig (damsire of G1 winners Buy And Sell, Pierre Jourdan and Via Africa among others) and G1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship heroine Rebellious
