18/09/16 2yo Frangipani won first time out at Hannover ...

... and heads now for a Gr.3

Frangipani180916kl.jpg2yo FRANGIPANI (Jukebox Jury - FIREDANCE) won first time out in the colours of her breeders Graf and Grafin Stauffenberg at Hannover. Ridden by Andreas Suborics FRANGIPANI showed tremendous speed coming from last to first ridden with the hands only. After 7 colts she is the the first filly out of her dam and it was clear that she will not be offered for sale, but raced in the own colours and kept for breeding. FRANGIPANI is trained by Andreas Löwe in Cologne and he indicated after the race that he will aim her for the Gr.3 Preis der Winterkonigin at Baden-Baden, the best race for 2yo fillies in Germany. FRANGIPANI is the latest of the 6 winners her dam FIREDANCE has produced so far, the best being the Gr.3 winner FEARLESS HUNTER by ALHAARTH.

The result was a welcomed update for FLETCHER, her yearling brother by MAXIOS, who will be offered as Lot 657 in Book II of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK. This year FIREDANCE foaled a filly foal by SIYOUNI, which is named FRAGRANCE.
