Torryburn Stud Sell Inglis Classic Winner

Sydney, January 18 - Triple Crown Syndications are no stranger to success in the $250,000 Inglis Classic having won the race previously with Miss Independent in 2008 and Cavalry Rose in 2012, their red and white colours carried to victory again at Randwick on Saturday in the rich Inglis sales incentive race by talented filly Peggy Jean.

The Gerald Ryan trained daughter of Myboycharlie (IRE) was a good second to highly rated Gai Waterhouse trained filly Nayeli on debut on January 8.

She showed good improvement on that run for this tougher assignment against the colts, finishing solidly from back in the field for Kerrin McEvoy to overhaul spring stakes-winner Boomwaa and win by a short neck.

From just two starts, Peggy Jean has won $181,425 in prizemoney, providing an outstanding return for her big group of owners.

“Back in September she was up and going and we decided to put her away and aim her at this race,” Gerald Ryan said.
“It was a blessing. She grew, she matured and although she was fiery early she settled into the game.
“She is a really nice filly, but I think she will be better later on over 1600 metres.”

Ryan was quick to dismiss Peggy Jean as a Golden Slipper horse, but believes she will make her mark in the future.

“If she was to win a good race it would be over a mile maybe something like the Fernhill or the Champagne,” he said.
“We will take her home, let the dust settle and decide what to do with her.”

Peggy Jean was bought by Triple Crown Syndications for $46,000 from the Torryburn Stud draft and was a successful pinhook having been bought previously by Stud Manager Reggie Mackellar for $25,000 at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.

“She was actually my first pin hook that I bought up at the Magic Millions as a weanling,” revealed Reggie Mackellar.

“I called John Cornish (Torryburn Stud owner) whilst I was up at the sale and asked if he would like to go halves with me in the filly as I just loved her on type plus I loved her pedigree.”

Peggy Jean is the first foal of Lady of Love, an unraced half-sister by Lago Delight to stakes-placed Prince of Dane from the family of Group I winners Lady Jakeo and Mrs Onassis.

She is the second Inglis stakes-winner to emerge from the 2013 Inglis Classic draft from Torryburn Stud joining Dubleo (USA) filly Silversands, who was a $35,000 purchase and won the $255,000 Inglis Banner race on Cox Plate Day.
