Pinhook Filly Rolls Home In Sydney
30 Aug 2012
The Goodwood Stud team’s eye for young thoroughbred talent was emphasised in Sydney yesterday.
Successful pinhook Roll The Bones opened her account at the Canterbury meeting at just her second start.
She sat outside the pace under in-form jockey Christian Reith and bolted clear in the straight to win easing up.
Reith said Roll The Bones "felt terrific in the run” despite "having to call upon plenty of reserves” when forced to work early.
"She’s got plenty of promise and I’ll be interested to see what they (Patinack Farm) will do with her.”
The Red Ransom filly was originally purchased by Goodwood at the 2010 Magic Millions Sale for $A67,500.
She was then offered by the farm in their 2011 Premier Sale at Karaka and made $220,000.
Roll The Bones was a $220,000 purchase for NSW agent Rick Connolly on behalf of Patinack Farm.
She is a half-sister to Rasmussen, who is the stakes winner of 10 races in Queensland.
Their dam Fleureel is a sister to the dual Gr 1 Melbourne and Auckland Cups winner Jezabeel.
