Spurs And Sashes salutes on the Gold Coast

Oct 14, 2013

Having only her third start for the Gold Coast-based Toby Edmonds Stable, four-year-old Flying Spur mare Spurs And Sashes scored by a narrow half-neck margin in the PCYC Ashmore Handicap over 1400m.

Racing wide throughout, the Matthew Palmer-ridden mare has performed extremely well for the stable, having only had three starts so far, she has been in the money on each occasion for her owner Segenhoe Stud.

Finishing second on debut for the stable a few weeks back, the mare followed that up with a third placing at Eagle Farm, before stepping up from the 1200m to the 1400m where produce a top notch effort - toughing it out to the very end for victory!

A graduate on the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, Spurs And Sashes (pictured recently at the stable) is out of the Group Three-winning Royal Academy mare Royal Sash, a half-sister to the stakes placed Bronc and Flurry’s Gem, who is in turn the dam of stakes winner Toluka – Power Of Khan (MAL).

Already the dam of the Group Three-winning More Than Ready filly Vivi Veloce and the stakes placed Just Been Lucky, the aim with Spurs And Sashes is to gain some valuable black type for the mare which will add considerable value to her as a broodmare proposition for her owners.

Toby Edmonds Racing would like to thank Segenhoe Stud for giving us the opportunity to train this talented mare and we are excited about her future prospects.
