Australian Filly Wins South African Group One
Sunday, 1 August 2010: Sent out the favourite after a pair on impressive wins at her previous two outings on the track, the Dubawi filly relished the extra journey in the feature two-year-old contest and she cleared away for an easy win.
Happy Archer, a graduate of renowned Queensland thoroughbred nursery Racetree and half sister to this season's Queensland stakes winner Femina Fashion, is trained by Sean Tarry.
She was purchased for just $23,000 at last year's Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale by Tarry's brother and regular Gold Coast buyer Mark.
The exciting youngster is the 12th individual stakes winner for her sire Dubawi, the Irish Two Thousand Guineas winning son of Dubai Millennium.
Her dam So Tempted, a winner in Adelaide over 1250 metres, is from the stakes performed and six time winning Semipalatinsk mare Hutt Star.
So Tempted, by Melbourne Cup winner Jeune, is a sister to Wakeful Stakes winner and VRC Oaks placegetter Lolita Star and a half sister to Adelaide Guineas winner Berezny.
So Tempted's two named foals to date are both stakes winning fillies as she is also the dam of the Gold Coast Bracelet winner and Doomben Roses runner-up Femina Fashion.
Prepared at the Gold Coast by Trevor Whittington, Femina Fashion is a winner from 1200 to 1800 metres and has already earned her connections $189,800.
