This is a lovely big filly who has been given plenty of time to develop. She is going to be a very nice three-year-old, and only had one run for experience when she was two. Her debut race was a hot maiden at Wolverhampton in September, and she came a respectable 7th behind some very expensive Godolphin two year olds. She was a bit green in the early stages, but really knuckled down when the penny dropped, and she was going on at the finish. She is now gaining some more racecourse experience and our trainer thinks we have a very decent filly on our hands.
Since retiring to stud Multiplex has sired the winners of 151 races and £935,828, including Group and Listed race winners such as DOWN TO THE MOON, SUPERPLEX and RADIO GAGA.
Her dam, Dockside Strike, was unraced but is a half-sister to Group race winning sprinter Winker Watson (who is now a sire). As a broodmare she has been very successful – all of her offspring have been winners, and most of them have been multiple winners. SunshineAndBubbles is a full sister to Precision Strike - who has won an incredible TEN races - and the rest of her family have all been successful too - her full sister Complex won twice, and so far her half-brother Under Approval has won four races, and her full brother Picket Line has won twice. We expect her to follow in the family tradition!
She is also registered for the Plus 10 industry-funded bonus scheme for owners and breeders. In selected races, eligible two and three-year-old horses will race for cash bonuses of £10,000. Plus 10 bonuses will be paid in all Class 2-4 Maiden and Conditions Races, and Class 5 Fillies’ Only Maiden races. Some very worthwhile targets for this filly!
