Chaillot, a Group 3 winning mare for Archie Alexander, will go under the hammer at the Gold Coast National Broodmare Sale later today, set to embark on the next phase of her career as a broodmare. This sale contains a high quality of race mares and fillies every year and this year is no exception. Star performers such as Away Game, Tofane, Nettoyer and Still A Star are just some of the big names in the sale.
Chaillot will be offered at the sale through the draft of Newgate Consignment and presents very well at the complex.
The mare by Testa Rossa, scored 5 wins during her career. Her career highlights were:
- Undefeated as a 2yo, including a win in the Listed Anzac Day Stakes defeating subsequent G1 Caulfield Guineas winner, Super Seth.
- After injury forced her to miss her 3yo year, she was a winner on her 4yo return in spring 2020.
- At her fifth career start, she finished 4th in the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes at the Flemington Spring Carnival, beaten less than a length. Jockey Declan Bates, who rode her so well throughout her career, admitted he pushed the button too early on her on this occasion.
- A winner again first-up in autumn 2021, taking out the G3 Frances Tressady Stakes.
- Took her first-up record to 4 from 4 in spring 2021, winning the Listed Testa Rossa Stakes on return – the race named after her sire. This was to be her last victory.
Chaillot has created some great memories for her owners and connections throughout her career. We have little doubt that she will become an excellent ‘mum’ in the next stage of life.
