To be honest, I carry no expectations re the results, but this is a lovely story of 3 generations of the immediate family getting into the Silvers and Finals of 3yo filly Sires Stakes racing.

For those of us who have a passion for breeding, I just want to share this because I am super proud.

Zenterfold won the the Sires Stakes Fillies Silver 2003, for trainer Geoff Small and driver David Butcher. Her daughter The Blue Lotus got third in the Sires Stakes Fillies 3yo Final in 2010, albeit 8 lengths behind the wonderful quinella of Carabella and Bettor Cover Lover. With a good trip and tenacity, she held a clear third in front of others. David Butcher again the driver.

So it is stunning that the third generation Amazon Lily (Bettor’s Delight x The Blue Lotus), is in the same race final, this year. I am sure co-breeders Ken and Karen Breckon and Dom Zame will also be watching.

Whatever the results, I will be happy. Making finals at the high end of the game is an achievement.

Tip o’ the hat to trainer Ken Barron, co-trainer and driver Blair Orange, and those who are looking after her up north.

Isa Lodge has two yearlings this year, both colts.
One is from pacing mare Zenterfold, the other from trotting mare Sun Isa.

That makes them a half brother to Tintin In America, and a full brother to Flying Isa.

You can see photos, profiles and insights into the families and the breeding choices on the two new pages which also show as tabs at the top of my blog. There’s even some background about the names.

Of interest might also be Amazon Lily, a Bettor’s Delight yearling filly bred by The Blue Lotus Syndicate (Ken Breckon, Dom Zame, Bee Pears and Kym Kearns) and she is Lot 34 in the Breckon Farms draft.
