GRACEFUL MOMENT

Graceful Moment is an attractive and racy looking  youngster who is out of a mare that earned multiple black-type rosettes and hails from a terrific family. She is trained by Grp-1 and Classic winning trainer Tom Dascombe from his Cheshire base.

A recent purchase by the highly successful and well-established Deva Racing Group, this two year old filly is a sibling of the highly promising Brazen Beau three-year-old He’s A Keeper.

Tom Dascombe quoted “More horses percentagly wise that are born in May are black type performers as this is due to the fact that it’s the correct time of year for a horse to be born. A horse shouldn’t really be born in January or February as there’s no grass in the field.”

Their dam Silver Grey was a smart performer for trainer Roger Ingram. She was precocious enough to win a six-furlong novice on her second appearance at two and progressed to the extent that she finished second in the Grp-3 Prix Thomas Byron over a mile later in the year. The following season she was third in the Listed John Musker Stakes at Yarmouth and she twice finished fourth in Grp-3 company in France, at up to a mile and a quarter.

Silver Grey is a half-sister to the Listed-placed Kodiva, whilst their unraced dam Operissimo was out of the exceptional Negligent. She won the Grp-3 Rockfel Stakes on her way to being crowned the Champion English Two-Year-Old filly of 1989, before finishing third in the 1,000 Guineas the following spring.

Further high-class performers to emerge from this branch of the family include the brilliant Sky Lantern, winner of the Grp-1 1,000 Guineas, Coronation Stakes and Moyglare Stakes, the Grp-3 winner and Grp-1 placed Blatant, the Grp-3 winner and Grp-1 placed Songlark (a full-sister to Operissimo), the Grp-3 Queens Vase Stakes hero Shanty Star and the Grp-3 Round Tower Stakes winner Arctic.

The quality of this female line is complemented by the influence of a terrific sire. Fast Company won the Grp-3 Acomb Stakes and was runner-up in the Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes.

His offspring remain coveted assets at Europe’s major sales. His numerous classy progeny include the Grp-1 Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Jet Setting, the Grade-1 Arlington Million victor Robert The Bruce and this season’s Grp-3 John of Gaunt Stakes winner Safe Voyage.
