Lady Le Fay Joins Pike Yard

Tuesday, 21st July 2015

Talented Kiwi mare Lady Le Fay (Thorn Park-Mia le Fay, by Zabeel) has joined the Cambridge stable of Tony Pike, reports NZ Racing Desk. Formerly with Paul Shailer, the 4YO has won 5 of her 12 starts and hasn't raced since landing her maiden stakes victory in the Listed Anzac 1600 at Awapuni in the autumn. "She's a quality mare and she's been in the stable about five weeks," Pike said. "I will be sitting down with the syndicate manager Michael Hughes soon to map out a programme for her." By ill-fated stallion Thorn Park, Lady Le Fay is out of the Zabeel mare Mia Le Fay and is a half-sister to Roger James' talented dual Gr3 placegetter The Tidy Express (Volksraad). Lady Le Fay is also a direct descendant of one of the greatest English fillies of all time, Pretty Polly. This is a hugely successful European family that includes Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf winner Dank, Hong Kong Cup winner Eagle Mountain, Gr1 Prix Marcel Boussac winner Sulk, and French Oaks winner Masarika.
