Mt. Brilliant had some big pedigree updates this past week. Superioritycomplex (Hard Spun-Justlookdontouch) made her stateside debut a winning one at Arlington Park on August 18, making quick work of the Allowance group of fillies. Purchased in at Tattersalls December Mares sale from the Ballymacoll Stud dispersal, the four-year old filly is conditioned by the capable hands of trainer Michael Stidham. In addition to Superioritycomplex, Mt. Brilliant also purchased her 1/2 sister, Abingdon (Street Cry-Justlookdontouch) at the Ballymacoll Stud dispersal.
Million dollar two-year old in training graduate, Tatters To Riches (Union Rags – Poco Mas), bred by Mt. Brilliant, found his his way to his first stakes victory at Del Mar in the Shared Belief Stakes (Click Here). Sky Girl, a member of the Mt. Brilliant broodmare band saw her 1/2 sister and Champion Filly, Abel Tasman, win the Grade 1 Personal Ensign at Saratoga (Click Here). Debonnaire’s own Hartnell showed his merit with a second place finish in the G2 Sir J. Monash P. Lawrence Stakes at Caufield, Debonnaire will be represented at Keeneland September with Hip 828, a pretty grey/roan filly by Tapit. Finally, on Sunday, Tizaboutime, (Tiznow-Sail Away Home) “made a strong run” to be second in a Maiden Special Weight at Belterra.
Mt. Brilliant will be consigning it’s own yearlings in Books 1 and 2 of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. Pedigrees and Hip Numbers can be found on the Yearling portion of the website (Click Here).
