Exactly one year ago, a daughter of a first season sire, started at big odds ($20) and won the Magic Night Stakes for 2YO fillies over 1200m.
The daughter was KIAMICHI and the first season sire was Sidestep who was raced by Godolphin.
Hmmm, any of that sound familiar? Oh, I forgot to mention the track was wet.
Two days ago, the Magic Night Stakes was run again. THERMOSPHERE who is by first season sire, Exosphere, won it. It was in the wet, she started at big odds ($20), and……Exosphere is owned by Godolphin.
Scarily, eerily similar. Kiamchi then went on at her next start to win the Group 1 Golden Slipper at $26.
Thermosphere will have her next start in this year’s G1 Golden Slipper. She is currently a $26 chance!
Kiamichi’s mother, Ouachita is by Canny Lad.
Thermosphere’s mother, Glows, is by Canny Lad.
You getting the shakes yet?
Thermosphere’s sire, Exosphere, was beaten in the Golden Slipper as a $4.60 favourite.
Kiamchi’s sire, Sidestep, was beaten in the Golden Slipper.
And, finally, both Kiamichi and Thermosphere are owned by Godolphin.
Kiamichi started from gate 14 in the Slipper. If Thermosphere draws 14….I’m getting on!
