Audio Description


Fledging is a lovely mare by MORE THAN READY, sire of 175 stakes winners and sire of the dams of 48 stakes winners including REBEL DANE, UNENCUMBERED and SINGLE BULLET.

She is out of a SANCTION mare named FLAPPER, winner of the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes and multiple Group placed.

Fledging was lightly raced having 7 starts for 1 placing.

She has since produced several foals including 5-time winner by REAL SAGA in REAL BLONDE. She has also produced BINGSHAN and city placed RUNKLE. This mare has had 6 foals 5 to race all winners. The owners have nominated her sixth foal a Filly by Spill the Beans for the March QTIS sale.

Her last two yearling fillies sold for $70,000 and $75,000 at QTIS yearling sales to magic millions, by winning trainer Toby Edmonds.

A foal to the Mission was born dead this year. The mare is also lame in her near side rear leg (video available) will not effect her in the breeding barn and can probably be mended with a few months confined to stables.

Reducing breeding numbers.
