Featured in a ‘Juvenile Trial Watch’ story last month, this royally bred Redoute’s Choice filly made a winning debut at Hawkesbury on Thursday.
Prepared by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Blonde Intuition jumped in front for Tim Clark and was never headed to skip away and win the 1100 metre maiden by a length and a half.
Blonde Intuition was bought for $500,000 at the Magic Millions from the Element Hill draft by Gai and Julian Blaxland.
She runs for a big syndicate of women headed by Louise Gillard and showed enough here to think she can measure up tp better races.
Blonde Intuition is a full sister to stakes-winner Come Hither (dam of stakes-winner Cohesion) and half-sister to stakes-winner Fun In Flight being from stakes-placed Hanky Panky.
More importantly she is a three-quarter sister-in-blood to stakes-winner and leading sire Not a Single Doubt, who is by Redoute’s Choice from her grand-dam Singles Bar.
Blonde Intuition must have been showing good ability for some time as Waterhouse purchased her half-brother by Sebring at Magic Millions this year for $170,000.
It’s a fast family that has also give us the likes of Group 1 winners Snippets, Forensics and Rewaaya, so connections will be hoping for some Black type for this filly before the breeding barn looms.
