All American filly scores for Hayes & Newhaven Park

All American’s 3YO daughter Tender scored a well-deserved win at Geelong on Friday for her owner-breeder Newhaven Park Stud and trainers David Hayes & Tom Dabernig.

Unlucky not win at least one of her four starts at two, Tender earned black type when third in April’s SAJC Dequetteville S. LR and was sent out favorite in today’s 1100-metre maiden. She duly delivered, finishing strongly to hold out Lelawala by a half-length, with a further 1.8 lengths back to Miss Delima in third.  

David Hayes prepared All American during his three-season career which culminated in a record-breaking victory in the 2009 VRC Emirates S. G1.

Tender is from the Danehill mare Memoir, a full sister to the stakeswinner Princesa (dam of Group-winning fillies Solicit and Star of Giselle), and three-quarter sister to Group 3 winner Kaphero (by Danzero).

Tender is the first stakes performer and one of her dam’s four winners from five foals to race, but unfortunately Memoir died in January 2012.

All American now has eight winners on the board, among them a pair of talented colts, Bachman (Sydney Group 3 winner at two) and Zebulon (stakes-placed at Flemington).

Second stakes performer for All American

A week after his son Bachman won the ATC T.L. Baillieu H. G3, first season sire All American has added a second stakes performer to his record.

Her name is Tender and she finished strongly to place third in Saturday’s SAJC Dequetteville S. 1000m LR for her breeder Newhaven Park which races her in partnership with trainer David Hayes. It was the filly’s second start after an unlucky debut third at Sandown on 19 March.

Tender is from the Danehill mare Memoir, a full sister to the stakeswinner Princesa (dam of Group-winning fillies Solicit and Star of Giselle), and three-quarter sister to Group 3 winner Kaphero (by Danzero).

Tender is her dam’s third winner and first stakes performer from five foals to race, but unfortunately Memoir died in January 2012.

With 4 winners and more than $300,000 prizemoney, All American is now third on the Australian First Season Sires’ table. Four yearlings from his second crop sold in Session 1 of last week’s Inglis Easter Sale for an average of $185,000, more than 12 times his 2011 fee, with a top price of $360,000 paid by Shadwell Australasia for the filly from Emanday (by Redoute’s Choice) consigned by Broadwater Thoroughbreds. `

All American’s compatibility with Danehill-line mares is already evident in his early performers. Debut winner American Time is also from a Danehill mare; Bachman is out of a Nothin’ Leica Dane mare; and the grand-dam of city winner Invisible is by Redoute’s Choice.
