Would not be surprised if she is not a late entry for the Oaks in June.

She should at least shake the hell out of the Irish version.

Looks a superstar in the making.

There were 3 races over the 10f course, She ran the fastest of the lot 2.18.04 in the final race on the card, the other 2 where a group 3 contest with some serious talent 2.18.75, and the other was a goodish handicap 2.22.33

Interesting.

So the dam is a full sister to Song Of Tara who stood for many years as a successful commercial stallion at Tobermory Stud near Goulburn, who have always specialized in providing value staying services (your sort of Australian stud I would have thought Auth   :biggrin:  )

Song Of Tara is the sire of 7 stakes winners, the best no doubt being the Sydney Cup winner No Wine No Song.

What really confuses things is that the dam of Tocco D'Amore, Spirit Of Tara, is not the same Spirit Of Tara who is an Australian stakes winner sired by Song Of Tara - blew a couple of fuses in my brain sorting that one out   :lol:

Actually I didn't know that the owner of Tobermory, Joe O'Gara, died last year.

Death Of Tobermory Stud Owner Joe O'Gara

Popular breeder and owner Joe O'Gara, a long-time supporter of Goulburn Racing Club, has passed away.

O’Gara was an extremely successful and respected breeder and owner who imported Air De France in the mid 1980s to stand at his Tobermory Stud near Goulburn.

Air De France sired some quality gallopers including G1 performers Air Seattle, Bomber Bill and Super Slew.

Following the success of Air De France, O’Gara imported Song Of Tara, a successful sire of many stakes winners including Sydney Cup winner No Wine No Song.

O’Gara raced a long list of horses in his familiar colours of red with a green shamrock.

Tocco D'Amore

Trainer: Dermot Weld
Owner: Moyglare Stud Farm

Horse profile - jockey colours

Raven's Pass - Spirit Of Tara (Sadler's Wells)

This filly was special today in Ireland - whilst she purchased as a yearling at the 2015 Goffs Orby sale, where she brought a stir, selling for 2million to Moyglare Stud. One race today and she won one race - looks to be an incredibly good filly, especially considering she went against the colts and demolished them. Dermot Weld spoke about her after “It’s very unusual for me to run a filly first time out against the colts, so that could have told you something, and she did it very nicely,” said trainer Dermot Weld. “It didn’t surprise me, but first time out I thought she might have needed it. She’d worked well, it was a very true run race and I thought it rode a very good maiden. She’ll go for a stakes race next, maybe an Oaks trial, and is a nice filly in the making.” - from thoroughbreddailynews.com

From a cracking family, Tocco D'Amore is a half-sister to four winners in Europe, including the Prix Daniel Wildenstein winner Echo Of Light, along with Irish History who was third in the Coronation Stakes for Mahmood Al Zarooni. Spirit Of Tara is a Sadler's Wells mare which is something I look at as a potential game changer as Sadler's Wells is an amazing broodmare sire and has been the leading light for a broodmare sire throughout Europe.

Winning by a cool 6 lengths on debut, this filly was slow into stride for her racecourse debut, where she would start to get rolling and leave a cracking impression. Out the back for most of the race, Tocco D'Amore was picking them off one-by-one and over 1m2f for the first time, she looks to be a classy one for the future. Going into the final 3furlongs, she was on the near side, throwing her head around and showing her greenness, but she would find her stride and go ahead to pass all of her rivals. The final furlong was a one horse race, she managed to kick clear to win by 6 lengths.

Tocco D'Amore is in-bred with Northern Dancer showing up on both sides, where he is on the 5th generation for the sire and the 3rd generation for the dam, making Tocco D'Amore in-bred to Northern Dancer 3x5, which some say is the engine room for any horse. An outstanding family, with the likes of Elusive Quality, Mr Prospector and Sir Ivor in here - if this filly follows in the footsteps of these, she'd be outstanding.

Target: Dermot Weld has made my life a little easier, as he expects her to go for Oaks trial in Ireland, where she could be set up for a crack at either the English or Irish Oaks, showing what Mr Weld thinks of her. Entries in the Group 3 Blue Wind Stakes, I could foresee this filly coming back for that race at running on the 13th of May if there is no setbacks, with the Irish Oaks around about 2 months later.

A horse who looks to be going places, Moyglare seem to love her on their Twitter account, of course you would for a 2million euro horse, but she could seriously be special. The looks, the pedigree and clearly some talent.
