Econsul’s link with Danehill
The impressive late-season run of Econsul’s first crop continued when Shezapro won at Northam on July 21.
The promising filly missed the start two lengths but covered to won easily for Ascot-based trainer Brendon Fitzgerald and jockey Peter Knuckey.
The Woodside Park Stud-based Econsul, winner of the 2004 G1 Caulfield Guineas, now has four winners from only nine starters. The son of Pins will stand in 2011 for only $4400 (inc. GST).
Importantly for breeders looking for an outcross to the wealth of Danehill-line mares in Australia, three of Econsul’s winners are out of Danehill-line mares.
Shezapro is a daughter of the Danzero mare, Prozero, who retired as a maiden in 2004 after two placings from six starts. It was Shezapro’s first run from a spell but she showed promise at her debut at Ascot in March when a luckless fifth.
Shezapro was offered by Lindsay Park (as agent) and bought for $22,500 (buyer Joe Crupi) at the 2010 Perth Magic Millions Yearling Sale.
