Filles and mares bred by my one of clients Nearco Stud have made a great start to the new season.
High Tranquility (High Chaparral ex Tranquility Cove) was a dashing Maiden winner at her second start yesterday at Kembla Grange, which followed closely on the heels of wins by Backless (Cape Blanco ex Alagant Satin) at Goulburn last week and Hard Faith (All Too Hard ex Absolute Faith) at Geelong the week before.
Add to that a bold resuming second from Belle du Nord (Reliable Man ex Bankside Belle) at Taupo on Friday and it’s been a pleasing start to the term for the Nearco Stud breed.
Yesterday’s winner High Tranquility, who is prepared by John Sargent, was born in England and Nearco imported the mare & foal into Australia. The photo you see with this piece is High Tranquility at Broadwater Farm (now known as Bhima) in October 2014. If she looks a big foal, it’s actually because she was born in the January of that year!
Tranquility Cove is currently in foal to Jimmy Choux and recently returned to the Hunter Valley (Bhima) for a mating with Dundeel, the result of which will produce a close pedigree match to High Tranquility.
High Tranquility has been retained by Nearco Stud who shares in the racing lease with John Sargent & other clients of his Randwick stable.
