My top filly pick, out of Book 1 at Karaka is heading to Australia --bought by Mackybe Racing and Breeding for $60k.  Lot 314 Charm Spirit x Positive Dream. 

If you are into line breeding there is a lot of interesting aspects to her pedigree (not just the double up of Eljazzi). 

I am not sure why but Charm Spirit seems to be "out of fashion" this year. Maybe they are taking longer to mature than first thought, which would not surprise me with Montjeu as damsire. I think most people ignore the influence of the damsire in a stallion, at their peril.

Ignore the terrible photo Windsor Park have of her on the NZB website. In the ring she looked like a totally different horse. ( in fact I'd say WP desperately needs a new photographer for their yearlings.)

Interesting Breeder.

Breeding the mare to Charm Spirit would appear a "no brainer".  Pity she hasn't yet done enough to warrant a trip over to Oz for a Pride of Dubai cover.

The mare was owned by Qatar Bloodstock and was sold in foal to Charm Spirit last May for $22k to an Auckland buyer. I note her first foal was by All Too Hard (so linebred to Rolls) and had its first race in Victoria this month --called Lucid Dreamer.
 The brother to the filly sold yesterday is with Stephen Marsh and has had a couple of trials in November.
 I would expect them to be better as 3 years olds.
