Wentwood Grange bred and sold filly Easifar (NZ) (Pride of Dubai) landed black-type in the Listed Eureka Stud Princess Stakes (1630m) at Doomben on Saturday. 

Ridden by Luke Dittman the Chris Waller-trained filly fumbled out of the gates from barrier one but managed to remain amongst the front runners before settling in fourth position on the rails. 

Dittman got to work on her from the 400m mark and she duly obliged running down the leader Tycoon Evie to score by half-a-length on the line.  

Easifar has now won three and placed in two of eight starts for her owners Woppit Bloodstock.

Bred by Wentwood Grange’s Llanhennock Trust, Easifar is the ninth stakes winner for her sire Pride of Dubai. She is out of the Hurricane Sky mare Storm Fronts, a half-sister to stakes winner Miss Minden, the dam of Gr.1 Queensland  Oaks winner Miss Danehill and Gr.2 winner Pentastic. Storm Fronts has produced five winners including South African Group Three winner in Readytogorightnow. 

Easifar was sold out of Wentwood Grange’s 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale draft where she was purchased by Debbie Kepitis’ Woppit Bloodstock for $220,000. 

Easifar is the latest stakes winner for the successful combination of breeder/vendor Wentwood Grange and trainer Chris Waller, who have previously combined with Group One winners Kermadec and Kolding – who claimed his third Group One race on Saturday.
