Dual Derby and Breeders’ Cup Turf winner High Chaparral, who arrived safely in quarantine in New Zealand on Saturday, was welcomed with the news that he has sired another new stakes winner.
His very talented 3YO daughter High Heeled ran out a convincing winner of the Listed Lyric Stakes for fillies and mares over 2000m at York’s ‘King George’ meeting on Friday.
A 110,000 euros purchase at the 2007 Goffs Million Sale in Ireland, High Heeled had previously signalled class when finishing third in the Gr.1 English Oaks at Epsom in June. A return visit to York for the Gr.1 Yorkshire Oaks next month now looks on the agenda for High Heeled after this confidence booster.
High Heeled continued the wonderful run of recent success for High Chaparral and became the young sire’s 11th individual stakes winner in the last twelve months and his 12th overall.
High Chaparral who stands at $17,500 + gst, is headed for a busy season at Windsor Park Stud in Cambridge where the book full sign has been posted since early June.
