Third Winner for Purrealist

26 November 2011

Makybe's exciting young sire Purrealist posted his third winner at Moonee Valley on Friday night when the Hawkes Racing trained filly Anjea bolted away to win as she pleased.

Sent out favouirite, Anjea settled off the pace in the small field of five before sprinting away in the straight to win the 1000 metre dash by more than four lengths.

Raced by the Makybe Racing and Breeding Syndicate, Anjea was listed as a $110,000 sale when offered by Makybe at the 2011 Magic Millions and knocked down to John Hawkes.

Anjea (pictured as a yearling) is the fifth foal and second winner for Smytzer's Rose, a half-sister by Danehill (USA) to Group II winners Sportsman and Prisoner of Love, Group III winner Hoystar and stakes-winner King of Prussia.

Anjea is the third metropolitan winner for her sire Purrealist from just four starters, the Group III winning son of Tale of the Cat (USA) off to a brilliant start to his stud career.

Purrealist stands at a fee of $8,800 and covered 118 mares in his first season, before dropping to 76 in 2009 and just 68 last year.
