Freshman Sire Tasleet Off The Mark At Great Yarmouth




Confronted by just six rivals in Tuesday's British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Fillies' S. over an extended five furlongs at Great Yarmouth, David Loughnane trainee Carmela (Ire) (Tasleet {GB}) made no mistake to become the first winner for her freshman sire (by Showcasing). Recovering from a tentative getaway departing the stands' side stall to race in a close-up second after the initial exchanges, the 8-1 chance loomed large on the bridle passing the quarter-mile marker and stretched clear once shaken up for control approaching the final furlong to easily account for Jungle Time (Ire) (Jungle Cat {Ire}) by 2 1/4 lengths.

Carmela, half-sister to a yearling colt by Soldier's Call (GB) is the second foal and scorer produced by an unraced daughter of Listed Empress S. victrix Jira (GB) (Medicean {GB}). Jira, in turn, is a half-sister to G2 King Edward VII S. winner Plea Bargain (GB) (Machiavellian), G3 Winter Hill S. victrix Lay Time (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) and G3 Prix des Chenes runner-up Dubai Time (GB) (Dubai Destination). The March foal's fourth dam is MG1SW champion Time Charter (Ire) (Saritamer).
