Multiple Group 1 winner and leading filly of her generation Shout The Bar (Not A Single Doubt) is the latest headline entry for what is shaping as another spectacular renewal of the Inglis Chairman’s Sale.
Shout The Bar burst onto the scene in the autumn of 2020 when winning her first two starts by more than five lengths.
At just her third career start, the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained 3YO ran a nose second in the G3 Kembla Classic and at start No.4, became a G1 winner for the first time when victorious in the Vinery Stud Stakes when defeating the likes of Probabeel and Funstar.
It was that first preparation which initially highlighted her versatility, winning from 1150m to 2000m in the space of six weeks, while amassing almost $1.2m in earnings.
Shout The Bar then returned as a spring 4YO to win her second G1, the Empire Rose Stakes at Flemington, beating home G1 winners such as Forbidden Love, Mystic Journey, Nettoyer, Odeum etc.
Brett Howard of Randwick Bloodstock – who was involved in the selection and purchase of Shout The Bar (pictured) as a yearling – described her as a “top-class yearling’’ and believes she will produce the same as a broodmare.
“She was well balanced with great strength and had one of the best walks at the sale. If she can throw all or some of those qualities into her foals, they are going to make plenty as yearlings,’’ Howard said.
“Shout The Bar is by a proper stallion in Not A Single Doubt, a horse we are now seeing rocket up the Australian broodmare sire’s list and it will be no surprise to see him cement himself in the top 10 on that list within a few years.
“Shout The Bar’s genetic makeup is superb, there are no weaknesses. By Not A Single Doubt, out of an O’Reilly mare, out of a Centaine mare. And she comes from a female line which has proven repeatedly it can produce Group 1 winners.’’
Respected and well-known industry enthusiast Francis Cook raced Shout The Bar with his wife Chris and others and recalled the first time he saw her as a yearling.
“I wrote one comment in my book – WOW! – so when Gai bought her and with Brett’s help, we jumped in,’’ Cook said.
“It’s always the ‘Cooky bum’, the hip to hock, she was a perfectly conformed specimen with a great bum.
“She asserted herself as a star very quickly – to achieve what she did in that first preparation, from winning on debut over 1150m to being a Group 1 winner defeating Probabeel just six weeks later, not many horses can do that.
“I just can’t see how she won’t make a magnificent broodmare. As a daughter of Not A Single Doubt, they’re highly sought after and she’d be one of the best-performed of those on the racetrack.’’
Confirmation of Shout The Bar’s entry into the Chairman’s Sale comes after it was announced that fellow G1 winner Daysee Doom was also headed to the sale, as well as a spectacularly rare draft of mares from arguably the world’s leading breeding institution in Juddmonte.
