The Filly ..... third time lucky!

There is a long held philosophy in breeding that you should breed your mare to the same stallion three times to give it the best chance of throwing a good horse.

The Filly, the recent winner of the group three Rich Hill Stud Taranaki Breeders Stakes is testament to that theory, as she is the product of the third mating of her dam Bayline Beauty (GB) (Soviet Star[USA]- Bottom Line[GB])with Ishiguru (USA)(Danzig[USA]-Strategic Maneuver[USA]).

A tough little race mare her win in the Group Three event was well deserved. She has now won nine races from 34 starts and has been stakes placed five times. Three starts before her win at Hawera she ran a good third behind I Do in the Group Three Lisa Chittick Foxbridge Plate, and it was that mare who had subsequently won and run second at Group One level that she beat in the Breeders Stakes.

The Filly is trained by Murray Neal who bred her and he races her with the Bayline Trust that includes his mother Lorraine. Neal only trains one horse from his base in Cambridge, but has had a lifelong involvement in the game.

He is the nephew of Don Sellwood – Lorraine's brother – and used to spend his holidays with Uncle Don and also at Kevin Thompson's in Wanganui. He served his time as an apprentice with Brian Deacon and after four years there spent a year with Sellwood.

For 15 years he worked with horses in Australia and worked for masters like Bart Cummings and Bobby Thomsen and as well had stints breaking in horses in Japan, and managing a stable in Macau. Based back in Woodville he decided he wanted to race a horse from scratch and set out to buy a broodmare. "I was going through the catalogue for the August Bloodstock Sale at Karaka and I saw her mother (Bayline Beauty). I liked Soviet Star so I bought her for $3500 in foal to Ishiguru," enthused Neal, "she is the only horse I have ever bred."

The Filly commenced her racing career from Neal's Woodville base and raced from there as a three and four-year-old but half way through her five-year-old season he relocated to Cambridge.

Bayline Beauty was imported to New Zealand by Malaysian owner Jerry Sung and produced Hello Tommy (Volksraad[IRE]) and On The Line (Kaapstad) to produce two winners for him. She also visited Deputy Governor (USA) at Chequers Stud where she caught the eye of Chris Campin.
Mark Fraser-Campin takes up the story.

"Chris, Dad and I were at the 2004 Spring Bloodstock Sale at Karaka, when Chris spotted her going through the ring. He remembered her from visiting Deputy Governor and knew she had a good international pedigree so he purchased her for $300 and asked Dad and I to cough up with a hundred each, which we did.

"It was Ishiguru's first season and we sent her there. The first foal she produced for us we sold at the Select Sale at Karaka in 2007 for $80,000. He was called Go Legend Go in Hong Kong (Groovy Guru in New Zealand) and he won a couple of races.
"The next foal was a filly we sold as a weanling to Mandy Walters for $4,000 and later that year we sold the mare for $3,500 and she was carrying The Filly. It wasn't a bad return for a $300 investment!"

The filly that was sold as a weanling was Ishigood, who won three races and broke down winning the third, but came back 10 months later and won at her first start back to take her winning tally to four wins. She has since gone to stud.

Bayline Beauty is owned by Andrea Slater (formerly Neal), she has not had a foal since The Filly, but may visit Chianti (IRE) or Per Incanto (USA) this season. She was a half-sister to four stakes performers and seven other winners including Knight Line Dancer and Courtline Jester who were both by Caerleon (GB). Knight Line Dancer won eight races including four Group Three events in Italy where he became a sire.

Courtline Jester won nine races in Great Britain and Malaysia including the listed Perak and Singapore Derbies, the listed Singapore Queen Elizabeth II Cup and the listed Yang Di Pertua Negeri Gold Cup in Penang.

Ishiguru shuttled to New Zealand for five seasons at Chequers Stud before being euthanized in England following a leg injury. He was the sire of seven individual stakes winners including the Cambridge Breeders Stakes winner Geeza and Shenzhou Steeds who won the listed Sunshine Coast Guineas, Caloundra Cup and Ipswich Cup.
