Her World third stakes winner for Caravaggio

for Caravaggio

The highly anticipated debut of Her World (Ire) (Caravaggio {USA}) went exactly as planned on Saturday when the filly took on boys in the Tyro S. and galloped out a 6l winner at Monmouth Park.

Just like fellow Wesley Ward trainee Twilight Gleaming, Her World went straight to the lead and never looked back. The filly had a few runners try to pressure her early on but Her World laughed them off and steadily pulled away in the 1000 metre race to earn TDN Rising Star honours with the victory. American Pharoah’s (USA) Trust Our Journey (USA) was a clear second when 1.75l ahead of third-placed Baytown Warrior (USA) (First Samurai {USA}).

“We’re excited. She did exactly what we thought she would,” said Ward. “We don’t have to change much after watching that race moving forward. We’re going to bring her next to Keeneland, and then we plan on bringing her to the Breeders’ Cup.”

Her World is a half-brother to former Hong Kong runner Consort (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) among her dam’s five other winners. Mundus Novus (USA) (Unbridled’s Song {USA}) is a three-quarter sister to Grade 2 winner Surya (USA) (Unbridled {USA}), who produced Grade 1 winner Aruna (USA) (Mr Greeley {USA}). Their dam has Australian connections as the half-sister to multiple Australian winner Salatin (USA) (Seattle Dancer {USA}), who also stood in Australia from 1997 to 2002.

DGR is delighted to have limited ownership opportunities remaining in a strong, robust colt from the first Southern Hemisphere crop by G1 winning two and three-year-old Caravaggio. He is out of the sprint-winning Lonhro mare Kimblewick and was purchased for A$170,000 from Lime Country’s Magic Millions Yearling draft.
