We’re proud to announce the acquisition from the Cape Mare and Weanling Sale of two lovely mares who will be joining the Backworth broodmare band.
REFINED GOLD (Rich Man’s Gold (USA) - Lorgnette)
Refined Gold (8 year old; dam by Sportsworld) is a 1400m winner and half sister to Grade 3 placed stakes winner Loupe, their dam is a full sister to Grade 1 winner Sport’s Chestnut. This is the female line of Horse Chestnut. The mare has two foals by Tiger Ridge and we purchased her in foal to Trippi on a November cover. This is interesting, as Trippi’s best US filly, Grade 1 winner R Heat Lightning, is out of a mare by Gold Fever - a son of Forty Niner, with Damascus as second damsire. That’s the same as Rich Man’s Gold. The mating gives 3×3 Forty Niner, and a foal that’s close kin to R Heat Lightning.

CLEMATIS (Silvano (GER) - Upwardly Mobile)
Clematis (5 year old; dam by Hard Up) is a stakes placed 3-time winner and a half sister to Grade 1 winner Badger’s Gift, from a black type female line. Their dam is a stakes placed half sister to Cape Guineas runner-up Superior Service. Clematis was offered as a mare for stud and is yet to be covered.
