Former Westbury sire Gold Brose had an outstanding weekend as a broodmare sire recently, featuring the impressive 8 length demolition of the $1,150,000 Singapore Derby Sg-1 by Chase Me. Earlier on the same card the "talking horse of Singapore" - Super Easy - recorded his 11th win from 11 starts in the colony when coasting to the line in the S$200,000 Paititi Gold Trophy Sg-3 by four lengths; both horses are out of Gold Brose mares and were ridden by leading jockey Joao Moreira.
Chase Me trialed twice in New Zealand as a two-year-old before heading to Singapore where he has established an impressive record of 6 wins and 8 placings from 23 starts and more than S$917,000 in stakes for his owners the Super Trio Stable and trainer Desmond Koh. By Storm Creek, Chase Me was bred on a foal sharing arrangement between Peter Jenkins and Noeline Redfern. The dam of Chase Me, Cartier Gold, Is by Gold Brose from the imported mare Nile Lark. Chase Me is the third foal from the mare and Mrs Redfern has since bred a half brother to the talented stayer by young Westbury stallion Cecconi (Encosta de Lago).
Earlier on Sunday's card saw an outstanding effort by the New Zealand bred Super Easy (Darci Brahma-Parfore, by Gold Brose) when he took out the Paititi Gold Trophy Sg-3 by 4 lengths over the 1200m in what looked to be an "armchair" ride for champion jockey Joao Moreira. Camped on the leaders heals until the turn Moreira peeled the good looking bay out coming to the turn and the race all over within a matter of strides. The Darci Brahma colt was recording his eleventh straight victory in Singapore and his twelfth win from 14 career starts, with his prizemoney now totaling more than S$1,200,000.
Trained by Michael Freedman for the Joy 'n' Happiness Stable, Super Easy is from the Westbury Stud reared mare Parfore making him a half brother to quality Australian performers Tiger Tees (by Dubawi) and Our Lukas (by Generous), while Parfore is a sister to Nishaani - the dam of Group 1 winner Il Quello Veloce and current stakes winning juvenile Donna Cattiva - and Golden Sparkle, the dam of impressive debut winner Mosse.
