Wednesday, October 18th marked a great result for the well-known pedigree enthusiast and author Kristen Manning when homebred QUILATE (By BRADSHAW) finished powerfully to claim Wednesday’s $150,000 Group 3 Ladies’ Day Vase (1600m) at Caulfield. Congratulations to Kristen who purchased her dam MISS PELIGROSA (By DANGEROUS) through Randwick Bloodstock for just $2,000 in 2010. We are delighted for Kristen and look forward to following her success. 


The 5yo Mick Kent-trained mare advances her record to 5 wins, 3 seconds and 4 thirds from 18 starts with earnings of $211,315. QUILATE comes from the fourth crop of 31 live foals sired by the unraced ENCOSTA DE LAGO stallion BRAMSHAW, a half-brother to DANEWIN and COMMANDS from the famous EIGHT CARAT (GB) family.

EIGHT CARAT features again on the dam-side of QUILATE as she is out of the unraced MISS PELIGROSA whose sire DANGEROUS (By DANEHILL) is a half-brother to triple Group 1 winner VISCOUNT and a brother to Listed winner HELSINBORG out of the stakes-winning SIR TRISTRAM mare ANTWERP, a granddaughter of EIGHT CARAT. 

But the EIGHT CARAT influence does not end there. MISS PELIGROSA is out of the GENEROUS mare JERSEY CREAM whose granddam WYCOMBE is a half-sister to BRAMSHAW, COMMANDS, and DANEWIN. Kristen Manning backs her judgement and is no slave to fashion. MISS PELIGROSA was one of only three mares to visit AJC Australian Derby hero DON EDUARDO (NZ) in 2016 and she delivered a filly on August 25. 

It goes without saying that DON EDUARDO is a grandson of EIGHT CARAT (GB).
