There was good news at Auckland on Friday, September 28, for the new owners of former Bromac Lodge broodmare Moulin Bromac, and her yearling He's Watching filly foal.
Gibson Girl, who led and justified her favouritism for a maiden win in the Mangere Cossie Club Punters Section Mobile Pace, is the first foal from the 2013 Australasian Breeders Crown 4YO Mares Final winner, Carpenters Daughter (1:56.1, 13 wins & $307,872).
Carpenters Daughter (Artsplace-Missy Matao, by Falcon Seelster-Miss Burnside), is the well-performed half-sister to Moulin Bromac (by Bettor's Delight), who won twice from 16 starts when prepared by Nicky Chilcott.
Their dam Missy Matao (1:55.6, US, 15 wins) is also the dam of fast USA winner Manhattan Rusty (1:50.6, 9 NZ wins), a brother to Carpenters Daughter; (Our) Strawberry Miss (1:58.9, seven wins) and useful Canterbury-winning mare, Clasina Maria (1:57.6, seven wins).
This is a strong maternal family with grand-dam Miss Burside being an unraced Vance Hanover sister to the 1988 Northern Oaks winner Miss Ardmore (p3, 2:00.7, five wins).
Miss Burnside, herself the dam of 11 winners, six in 2:00, includng Optimist (1:51.4, US, $338,537), was a half-sister to another smart mare in Miss Clevedon (13 wins), the 1994 NZ Broodmare of the Year and most notably dam of 1993 Auckland Inter Dominion Pacing Grand Final winner, Mark Hanover (1:53.4, US, 37 wins & $907,785).
This is also the family of 1993 NZ Derby winner Mark Roy (1:55.2 US, $314,356) and top Australian winners, Same Old Macray (p2, 1:56.2, $302,251), Dee En Ay Macray (1:57.5, $254,140) and Bomber Macray (1:53.2, $224,500).
Gibson Girl, the latest sub 2:00 winner from the family, is prepared at Papakura by Steve Telfer.
She held out two late challengers to win in 1:57.5 for the 1609m, improving previous Auckland placings at her first two starts, to win at only her third career outing.
