Not to be out-done by Arrowfield barnmate The Autumn Sun, first season sire Showtime recorded his first stakeswinner in Adelaide on Monday when 2YO filly Show Royale proved too strong for her rivals in the $107,000 Cinderella S. 1050m LR.

Her stakes victory comes 9 days after Showtime’s son Tacito, already Group 3 & Listed-placed in Melbourne, won the $200,000 Magic Millions SA 2YO Classic. 

Bred and sold by Kerrie Tibbey’s Goodwood Farm, Show Royale is the best of four winners out of Ducey Du (by Royal Academy), an unraced half-sister of Group 2 winner Acey Ducey. 

She was an $85,000 purchase from Inglis Classic by trainer Lloyd Kennewell, agent Mathew Becker of Group 1 Bloodstock and owner Santo Guagliardo of Ridgeport Holdings.

Showtime raced in quality company for most of his three-season racing career, winning twice at Group 2 level, including a defeat of Hartnell in the weight-for-age P.B. Lawrence S. G2. He was also Group 1-placed in two 1400-metre sprints.  

He is now the 10th stakes-siring son of Snitzel and the sixth stallion to leave an Australian stakeswinner from his first-crop 2YOs this season.   

Showtime has 5 yearlings catalogued for this week’s Magic Millions Adelaide Sale.
