Silver And Roses Booked To Darci Brahma
Silver And Roses (Sadler's Wells-Blush With Pride, by Blushing Groom), a half-sister to this month's US Gr1 Kentucky Oaks favourite Rags To Riches (by A.P.Indy) "is among the exciting line-up of broodmares confirmed for Darci Brahma (Danehill-Grand Echezeaux, by Zabeel) at NZ's The Oaks Stud in this year," reported NZ Thoroughbred Marketing. Peter Vela of Pencarrow Stud confirmed the 2007 mating plans for Silver And Roses, who is currently in-foal to Waikato Stud sire Pins (Snippets-No Finer, by Kaoru Star). Meanwhile Rags To Riches (who has won her 3 starts this season by a combined 12.25-lengths) surged into Kentucky Oaks favouritism with her dominant 5.5-lengths win in the US Gr1 Santa Anita Oaks in mid-March (the race's biggest margin in 10 years).
