This sweet 2yo filly is by Sixties Icon out of Rose Cheval (by Johannesburg), a mare who thus far produced six foals. Four of them, also by Sixties Icon, making them full sisters to our filly, have won eleven races between them and the fifth foal, a half sister, by Winker Watson, was beaten a neck, on her debut, in a Newmarket maiden. Iconique is the sixth foal but if the previous siblings are anything to go by, we have plenty to look forward to.
We were keen to acquire this filly who missed all the yearling sales due to a superficial issue and, after a period of pre-training and a Summer at grass, she is now ensconced at the historic Bedford House Stables with rapidly emerging talent, globe trotting trainer, Charlie Fellowes.
By Sixties Icon, a St Leger winner, who was himself by world class stallion, Galileo, he has proven to be a remarkable stallion, getting winners over all trips but surprisingly has been able to produce so many with plenty of pace, able to win over the minimum trip including a couple of this filly’s siblings. Although a top class stayer, he was described to us when in training as ‘always showing plenty of pace, himself’ and, consequently, perhaps it shouldn’t be such a surprise that he has been able to get so many winners over the shorter trips.
Rose Cheval, our filly’s dam, has produced five previous foals and as indicated, four of those, full sisters have won eleven races between them from 5f to 10f and we are very pleased with our transaction and will, hopefully, bring you the opportunity to meet her very soon.
In full training with elite Bury Road trainer, Charlie Fellowes, who is now resident at Bedford House Stables, the former residence of multiple Classic winning trainer, Luca Cumani and he has had a superb couple of years with winners right across the country at many of the country’s biggest Festivals as well as going very close to winning the famed Melbourne Cup for two years running with the brilliant stayer, Prince of Arran. Charlie reports that she is a very straightforward and sweet natured filly who has taken a little bit of time for come to herself, as a two year old, but has now has started doing a good deal more on the gallops. Charlie is very much looking forward to getting her on the track.
Both Charlie and ourselves will be looking forward to giving her a run or two towards the end of this year and are thoroughly looking forward to following her throughout her 3 year old career in 2021 where she promises plenty of fun and excitement for her owners.
Iconique is now available on lease shares until October 2021 for a one-off payment which covers all training and racing related fees. Purchase a share today and you will also get the opportunity to help name her!
