INTRIGUING Lady blitzed home almost five lengths clear of heropposition on her 800m Scottsville debut on Sunday and her connections are suitably impressed.
The two-year-old chestnut daughter of New Approach (IRE) and a Green Desert mare was bought at the 2014 Inglis Sale in Melbourne, knocked down to Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, who will be watching her progress with interest.
Intriguing Lady, easy debut win.
Assistant trainer Nathan Kotzen commented: “Well done to Sheikh Mohammed. Intriguing Lady showed good work at home, she has plenty of pace and room for improvement as she matures. Well done also to jockey Brian Nyawo, he’s been riding her in her exercise gallops and deserved to get the mount in a race.”
Mike de Kock, speaking from Dubai, said: “The Melbourne Sale has been very lucky for us. The nice thing about Intriguing Lady is that she has a scopy pedigree. She has lots of stamina in her female line so the fact that she shows so much pace is very encouraging. She’s a prospect for the Highveld Autumn Season and for KZN later this year.”
