In 2015 at the Magic Millions National Broodmare sale, Randwick Bloodstock purchased BARDEGO for just $46,000. At the time, she was the dam of stakes winner DELAGO BOLT (By DELAGO BROM) in foal to FOXWEDGE.

Impressed with her previous two foals to FOXWEDGE, she looked a safe bet for RBA clients Rushton Park. Little did they know how the following 24 months would transpire – a journey that led them back to the sales ring, this time at the 2017 Inglis Premier Melbourne Sale at Oaklands in Victoria, where her in-utero foal (now a strapping FOXWEDGE filly) would sell for $300,000 to the bid of Sheamus Mills.

Foxwedge x Bardego 2017

The reason for this success is due to the exploits of this filly’s full-sister VOLPE VELOCE (By FOXWEDGE). Trained by Graham Richardson, this 3yo filly won her first 7 starts in New Zealand. A Listed winner at 2, she won the Group 2 Eight Carat Stakes (1600m) and Group 3 Eulogy Stakes (1600m) as a 3yo. She was unlucky to miss the Group 1 NZ 1000 Guineas through injury but gained some retribution in the Listed Karaka NZB 3yo mile (1600m). She is Group 1 bound in 2017.
