Iconique is a 3yo filly, by Sixties Icon, from a racy family full of winners, now including herself.
Lease shares for 2021 no longer available.
Iconique is a sweet 3yo filly by Group One Classic winner, Sixties Icon out of the mare, Rose Cheval (by Johannesburg) and is a full sister to FOUR winners of TWELVE races while the only other half-sister, by Winker Watson, was beaten just a neck on her debut, in a hot Newmarket maiden. Unsurprisingly, that filly, now a broodmare, had her first foal win, on July 16th this year. Our filly is the sixth foal of Rose Cheval and the signs are that, although a late foal, she has inherited plenty of her family’s ability.
Leased from her breeder, you now have the opportunity to share in the lease with just one, up front, payment, and nothing further to pay making her the ideal entry level venture into racehorse ownership. Although shareholders won’t own the filly, by sharing the lease you get all the usual benefits of racehorse ownership, including an equal share of prizemoney and the opportunity to enter the parade ring and winners enclosure as a fully fledged Owner, but without all the usual monthly costs. Your one-off payment covers all training and racing expenses up until the end of the lease, at the end of November. Get involved and join this hugely friendly syndicate and give yourself a real treat for the remainder of the flat season in 2021. Lord knows you deserve it…
We were keen to acquire this filly, a late May foal, who missed all the yearling sales due to her backward nature but, after a Summer at grass, last year, she went into full training in the Autumn for education. Still a little green, she had a further holiday on the advice of the trainer before being brought in to prepare for the 2021 turf season. Initially slow to mature, she has recently been showing the benefit of the patience afforded her and is firmly ensconced at the historic Bedford House Stables with the rapidly emerging talent, that is globe trotting trainer, Charlie Fellowes.
Iconique is 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 kinds of trips and, perhaps surprisingly, has been able to produce so many with plenty of pace, even 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, here at Newmarket, as ‘always showing plenty of speed, himself’ and, consequently, perhaps it shouldn’t be such a surprise that he has been able to get so many winners over shorter trips.
Iconique’s dam, Rose Cheval, has produced five previous foals and, as indicated, four of those full sisters have won twelve races between them from 5f to 14f and we are very pleased with our acquisition. Although a little backward, initially, and delayed from making her debut due to a bout of coughing, Iconique has shown plenty of ability this term and, indeed, has finished either third or fourth in all her races to date, bar Lingfield where she was hampered by another horse in the home straight. After finishing fourth on debut at Salisbury, she subsequently ran an absolute blinder at Yarmouth when a close up third, the fourth horse coming out and winning next time out and then on her third start, and the one that qualifies her for a handicap mark, finished fourth behind Michael Bell’s Heartbreaker.
Iconique’s fourth start was at Lingfield where she raced again with plenty of promise, but unfortunately was buffeted out of the race by another horse in the home straight. However, on just her fifth appearance at the track, when we returned with her to Yarmouth, where she had run her best race to date, Iconique fulfilled some of the potential we had seen in her previously, as she put her head down and gave her all to beat off a very decent field in her hardest race to date.
Under what we would have to say, was a terrific ride from Hayley Turner, Iconique won her race, breaking her maiden tag and provided many of her Owners and Members with a terrific day at the track.
Charlie conveyed how pleased he was with her effort afterwards. Only just starting to mature, she looks to have plenty more big days to come…

Iconique’s elite Bury Road trainer, Charlie Fellowes, is resident at Bedford House Stables, the former base 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 three years running with the brilliant stayer, Prince of Arran. Charlie reports that this filly is a very straightforward, sweet natured filly who has a terrific attitude to her work and although she initially took a little bit of time for come to herself and has had a couple of bouts of coughing, she has really grown and strengthened up.
Both Charlie and ourselves are thoroughly looking forward to the rest of her 3 year old career in 2021 where she promises plenty more fun and excitement for her owners!
