Welcoming - Lot 387 from the Inglis Classic Sale - Merchant Navy x Ashlee Marie
Apr 08, 2022
Thank you to Proven Thoroughbreds for securing Lot 387 from the Inglis Classic Sale, which will be trained at the Kerry Parker Racing Stables. A filly by Merchant Navy out of Ashlee Marie. She is an athletic filly who has a presence and we can't wait to get her into the stables and into work. Please see below some key factors and observations of the filly from Proven Thoroughbreds: -
Beautifully balanced filly from the second crop of MERCHANT NAVY, a dual hemisphere Group 1 winning son of the all-conquering FASTNET ROCK.
As well as his impeccable racetrack record, MERCHANT NAVY is bred the same way as current champion sire SNITZEL (by a son of DANEHILL out of a stakes winning SNIPPETS mare).
The dam ASHLEE MARIE won her first two starts as a 2YO over short courses before finishing runner-up over 2500m at Group 3 level as a 3YO.
Has more scope and style than most of the breed, suggesting she will get over an Oaks trip.
Kerry also commented that: -
“I’m really impressed with how this filly carries herself, especially considering she was a November foal. A very athletic type with it all in front of her.”
