Ontrack Thoroughbreds’ in-form mare Cymbalism captured valuable black type form with her third in the $125,000 Silk Stocking Stakes at the Gold Coast.
The Denman mare went into the fillies and mares’ race with two wins at her last two starts and produced a career best effort to run third to Demerara and Quilista.
Bought by Ontrack’s Grant Morgan at the 2014 Magic Millions Sale, Cymbalism has now won five races and recorded five wins and nine placings from only 21 career starts.
“We brought her to Queensland after she was a winner in Victoria for Chris Meagher’s Mornington stable and she’s done a great job up here,” said Grant Morgan.
“She’s won three in Queensland and had three placings from seven starts and in a couple, she had no luck so with better fortunes her record would be even better.
“Being the winner of two city races and now placed in a black type race, she should be a sought after broodmare prospect.
“She’s rising six years old but comes from one of the most successful families established by the Ingham Brothers Woodlands operation and close up in her pedigree is the smart Godolphin-owned colt Microphone, who was second in the Golden Slipper before winning the Group One Sires Produce.
“The dam of Microphone is Sung who is a half-sister to Cymbalism, so the colt’s great form this autumn and Cymbalism’s recent black type form has come at a great time as she’s likely to head to the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale on the Gold Coast at the end of this month,”
