The Backworth-bred Grade 1 winning daughter of Kahal, Chocolicious, features in Australia once more as her second filly, a weanling by Australian sire sensation Fastnet Rock, goes under the hammer Monday in Book 1 of the Magic Millions Gold Coast National Weanling Sale. She is catalogued as Lot 231 and is consigned by Holbrook Thoroughbreds as agent.
Backworth-bred Chocolicious has foaled a lovely Fastnet Rock filly down under for Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock. Here they are together... the foal just 48 hours old!
Kahal (GB) - Candy Box by Exclusive Patriot (USA)
Herman Brown-trained Chocolicious (SAF) is performing well at the 2011 Dubai International Racing Carnival; having started twice with a fourth in the UAE 1000 Guineas Trial on 13 January and a solid third in US$250,000 UAE 1000 Guineas (Listed) on Thursday, behind the Mike de Kock-trained Galileo fillies, Mahbooba (AUS) and Reem (AUS).
We are holding thumbs that the Backworth-bred daughter of Kahal out of Candy Box continues her Dubai countdown; 4… 3… 2… 1…
