Sommes Sound Foals Zeditave Filly

Wednesday, 21st September 2005

According to Hunter Valley journalist Brian Russell, highly influential broodmare Sommes Sound has foaled a full-sister to Gr1 winners Assertive Lad and Assertive Lass, who between them won 5 Gr1 events. The filly was foaled at the Marheine "family's thoroughbred nursery Stratheden Stud at Tamworth". The US bred matron's offspring have sold for up to $1.5 million (her record breaking Danehill filly), while daughter Assertive Lass is dam of Gr1 hero Reset (by Zabeel), sold to Darley for stud duty by leviathan owner Lloyd Williams, whose Perlin won the Gr1 Dubai Duty Free Underwood Stakes last Saturday at Caulfield.
