It was great to see California Spangle run 2nd in the Group 1 Champions Mile at Sha Tin on Sunday 24th April as it gave a lovely update to the pedigree of unraced 2-year-old Alchimia. Alchimia is a filly by Fast Company so closely related to California Spangle as he is by Starspangledbanner and they share the same dam, Pearlitas Passion.
Pearlitas Passion has already bred the 102-rated and 3-time Listed placed performer Wychwood Warrior and so with himself and California Spangle it will be a lovely pedigree to breed from when Alchimia’s racing days are over.
Alchimia was a £19,000 yearling purchase on behalf of Alchemy Bloodstock who are a new Racing Syndicate set-up by long time racing fan, Peter Raybould. More information on Alchemy Bloodstock can be found at www.alchemybloodstock.co.uk so if you are interested in having shares with a small syndicate with the horses purchased by myself then please do give Peter a call.
Alchimia is currently in-training with Ivan Furtado and I will be looking forward to seeing her hit the track this coming Summer.
