Glycerine/Time For War
This is the first foal for the well-related unraced BEL ESPRIT (Royal Academy) mare Glycerine. TIME FOR WAR (Snitzel) is off to a tremendous start with his first crop 2YOs and this filly should be no exception to the rule as she is from the immediate family of Time For War’s sire SNITZEL (Redoute’s Choice). Finally produced a colt foal by another son of Snitzel, in SOOBOOG and is back in-foal to the same sire so there is plenty to look forward to with this filly’s family and the Snitzel connection.
This filly is bred on the successful SNITZEL/BEL ESPRIT cross that has produced an incredible 80% winners to runners. The REDOUTE’S CHOICE/ROYAL ACADEMY cross is no less impressive, with a winners to runners strike rate of over 73% and a Stakes horses to runners strike rate of 47%.
3YO filly THRILLSTER (Starspangledbanner) is inbred on the same DANEHILL pattern as this filly. Stakes placed at 2 on debut, THRILLSTER has since added a victory in the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes to her resume and also placed 3rd behind subsequent Group One winner SUNLIGHT in the Group Three Quezette Stakes and was 2nd to SMART MELODY in the Group Two Thousand Guineas Prelude.
BEL ESPRIT’S credentials as a broodmare cannot be faulted with his daughters already responsible for producing the Group One winners MONTAIGNE – BEAUTY GENERATION (HK) and COSTA VIVA.
