A pair of broodmare daughters of Klawervlei Stud’s proven G1 sire Count Dubois have both met with success in Australia.
The Count Dubois sired Equus Champion Asylum Seeker, whose four wins included a triumph in the 2006 G1 Golden Slipper, is the dam of a pair of very smart winners sired by short-lived champion Sebring.
Asylum Seeker’s daughter Seeking Asylum won four times in Australia, winning from 1300m to 1550m, while Seeking Asylum’s four-year-old full-sister Scarlet Dream ran second in a 1500m handicap at Randwick on Saturday.
The Mark Newnham trained Scarlet Dream has won or placed in seven of only nine starts, and was runner up in last season’s G1 Australian Oaks.
Scarlet Dream holds entries for both the 2019 G1 Lexus Melbourne Cup and G1 Caulfield Cup.
Another high-class daughter of Count Dubois to retire to stud in Australia was G3 Pretty Polly Stakes winner Ethics (subsequently re-named Miss Ethics).
A winner of three of her seven starts, with her wins including the Ruffian Stakes, Ethics had success in Australia on Sunday, when her four-year-old son Ethical Dilemma (by Shamus Award) won at Devonport.
Now a winner of two of only seven starts, Ethical Dilemma had won two starts back when he shed his maiden over 1350 metres.
Former G1 winner and Equus Outstanding Stallion Count Dubois is enjoying increasing success as a broodmare sire, with his daughters already producing such notable performers as G2 Camellia Stakes winner Schippers, top sprinter Pinnacle Peak, G1 Thekwini Stakes runner up Melliflora, Ready To Run Stakes victor Budapest, and Java Handicap winner Ali Bon Dubai.
